Dr Chris Parker seems like a congenial person, but his staff are absolutely horrible people. Front office staff are even worse, and scheduling appointments is one of the worst setups I've seen in medicine. Forget talking to anyone about insurance or bill pay issues.

Another great experience with Dr. Parker and his staff. He spends time to answer questions and provide support with any concerns or questions that I have. Living with arthritis is easier with a team that responds quickly. He is the ONLY doctor that is in the exam room on schedule with a smile! My highest recommendation for Dr. Parker."

Very easy to visit with. Dr. Parker sits and listens to a patient and then explains what his thinking is on issues. And explains in a way you can understand. Super staff also.

Dr parker is personable and kind. Offered to help with issues even tho he believed I had no ra issues. He said he would not prescribe a med that would nit help me and could hurt me. Wow. A Dr not selling a procedure I didn't need. Recommend him highly for clear diagnosis.
