What People Say About Dr. Edward Parks, MD

Simple words cannot express the overwhelming positive care I received from Dr. Parks. I received a total left knee replacement March 4, 2019. His bedside manner and examination room decorum is the best. He did not sugar coat any of the different phases of recovery I would experience. I highly recommend Dr. Parks.

Dr. Parks is that unique combination of attention to the patient and great skill as a surgeon. I had a knee replacement from Dr. Parks and it was life changing for me. I highly recommend him, especially for knee replacement surgery.

I tore my ACL skiing last year. I met with several surgeons and chose Dr. Parks for his expertise (including the shear number of ACL repairs he does) and his patient-centered focus. I was debating alternative (non-surgical) treatments, and Dr. Parks answered my many questions, even up to the night before surgery. I am very pleased with the outcome. Dr. Parks is the ideal surgeon - highly skilled and deeply respectful of his patients.

I fell 11 days ago and fractured my femur head bad. I was rushed to the hospital. And I THANK GOD that Dr. Ted Parks just happened to be the surgeon there that evening. I was out of my mind in pain. And terrified. But given that he was the surgeon. I was able to fully trust and just go under and put myself in his hands. He has been impeccable from the start. Not only brilliant. Not only of the highest reputation. But so caring and personable. I am exceedingly grateful to have him on my team.

Had a total knee replacement in Jan. Dr Parks was reassuring , listens. calming and explain the procedure very well. As I was fairly nervous. I had a gait problem after and he figured it out. He is very nice and great personality. I would go back again. Thank you for your great care. Also the office staff, job well done.
