Fantastic but doctors. Excellent experience. Saved my life: strongly recommends

Excellent doctor overall. His decades of experience really show through in his analysis of my procedure's results.
Decatur, GA |
Very quick appointments and Dr. Parrish is very thorough in asking questions and explaining reasons for testing needed. Then he personally calls with Biopsy and XRay results where most MD's delegate to the staff to call. Very pleased.
