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."

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.
