Dr. Parker's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Parker "Mission Statement Today measurable biological mind realities, new data, as it did in Galileo's time, change archaic perceptions based upon labels and outward appearances. At CorePsych and as a host at CoreBrain Journal l provide complimentary, understandable translations for these complicated concepts that connect professional insights with street applications - to encourage improved practice, both diagnosis and treatment, at every level of mind experience."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Parker "Today exciting new biomedical insights take us all far past dreams and fantasies into a broad, complex landscape with many turns - into a remarkably complex, at times amazing, biological brain reality.

That new reality builds upon the shoulders of all the clinicians and researchers who've paved the way for these new insights. Today psychiatric medications prove helpful, but only if they are used correctly-  with a full appreciation of every impasse along the way.

These measurements at first look like new problems, but with our improved vision they open the door for unique solutions. My mission: to measure and translate those previously under appreciated data variables for more precise treatment and more predictable treatment outcomes. "

I went to see dr Parker a few months ago due to advise from a friend. He asked me to say in one sentence why I was there. Then like a psychic he listed a number of issues I suffer with and blew my mind! He was very kind and even listened intently to my husbands conserns. I'm not the type to cry in...more

Dr. Parker is one of the few mental health professionals I've ever trusted in my life, and even though I've only been taking the medication he prescribed me for a few days, I can already see a giant change in myself and my quality of life. He really cares. That's rare in this field.

He saw my son for counseling- didn't help. He put him on a Rx but it didn't help. Then he prescribed a Rx that was fairly new. I did some research on the Rx & found it was a highly addictive Rx that amphetamine addicts liked bec of the way it made them feel. Next appt he asked about the Rx, I said...more

He was of some help with our autistic son, but never really could get a handle on his behaviors and attention deficits. His personal attention to our son was minimal and we felt very much like a number to him. His office staff and practices are what ultimately drove us away. His assistants...more

Dr. Parker, himself, is excellent. I've been going to this office for many years. The nurse/medical practitioners that rotate in and out (I can't count the number I've had) are an issue, however, and while some have been fine, the bad ones make life very difficult The most recent hire is terrible:...more
