What People Say About Dr. Charles Parrish, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
I have seen doctor Charles Parrish for multiple gastrointestinal related problems throughout the year. He is always a pleasure to see. He answers my questions adequately and assesses my needs thoroughly. I give him 5/5 across the board. He has also performed a colonoscopy on me, which went extremely smoothly. No complaints, only compliments!

r. Parrish is my 2nd favorite doctor all any stomach, digestive, and GI needs.. He is intelligent, thoughtful, a good listener, compassionate, knowledgeable, and practical. I absolutely would refer anyone I care for to Dr. Parrish at Atlanta Center for Gastroenterology & Atlanta Endoscopy Center above anyone else, and I've worked with countless GI docs . PS - just fyi - . my # favorite physician is the other doc working at ACG, Dr.David Rausher. They both have unique attributes I respect and ap

Had EGD this past month. Terrific staff. Very caring physician. The total time I was in and out of there was entirely reasonable. My procedure was surprisingly pain-free. I got my results back quickly and I highly recommend this physician.

Horrible doctor.I wish there was a "no star " option. Careless,not interested,rude and useless.Gave me the wrong information(just to convince me to do the procedure he was recommending) ,misread my medical records,didn't ask for my symptoms,was disrespectful towards other doctors advice and was basically trying to get rid of me after not saying a single useful thing. Not worth a dime.Please search a doctor that is actually doing his job not one that will try to "sell" you things for their benefi

Reply Dr. Charles Parrish is both a funny and extremely intelligent gastroenterologist. He helped identify a serious health issue I didn't even knew exist. I definitely recommend him and staff at both Atlanta Center for Gastroenterology and Atlanta Endoscopy Center to anyone - highest recommendation!!

Dr. Parrish saw me the day after I called-in to schedule my 1st appointment. I found him to be a very friendly man with great bedside manner. I could tell from our lengthy consultation that this gastroenterologist is both very season, knowledgable, and caring. Although I initially wanted to inquire about my acid reflux (GERD) during our consult (which I did), I proceeded to have a subsequent procedure at Dr. Parrish's ASC, Atlanta Endoscopy Center. Again, very impressed by the MD, Staff, etc.

FANTASTIC Doctor and Staff! I have been going to Dr. Parrish for 25 years. In recent years, the staff changed. Though I miss the old nurse, the new nurse is an excellent replacement -- both nursing skills and "bed-side manner." Actually, ALL of the new staff are great -- from intake to outtake. This review is from someone who hates to go to the doctor, so I really appreaciate this doctor and staff.
