Dr. Parks' Care Philosophy

I believe that all patients should be treated wtih respect and dignity. Every patient deserves the direct attention and examination by their physician, not just by a nurse practitioner or physician's assistant. My staff and I work hard to limit waiting times to 30 minutes or less. We try to make your visit as comfortable and professional as possible. I review the results of the examination, xrays, and other studies, etc., with the patient and do everything I can to help them understand their condition and the treatment options I recommend. Good decisions are the result of shared knowledge and mutual respect. Good decisions lead to good results.

I would definitely recommend Dr.Parks to anyone that needed the best in orthopedic surgery! He's the best of the best when it comes to diagnosing and communicating the issues with his patients. No hesitation in recommending him to anyone of my friends or family!

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.
