I have gi issues that my hospital don't have the expertise to help me. With my first visit with Dr. Parkman I felt comfortable and he patiently listened about my GI issues. I was not rushed at all and you can tell when you are telling him your issues his wheels in his head are turning . very intelligent Dr Would recommend him to anyone well worth my long travel.

Dr Parkman is an excellent experienced Dr. If you are looking for someone to chit chat forget it. If you are looking for someone that can give you the best care available this may be the Dr for you. Dr Parkman improved the quality of my life from dismal to upbeat when noone else could. This Doctor is excellent!

For all his " expertise" he doesn't know if he's coming or going . Very disorganized . Has students doing the procedures as your asleep . Woke up with endoscope still in me . Horrible

I am quite pleased with my first visit with Dr. Parkman. I found him to be friendly and very thorough in questions he asked to work through the start of my testing process to find a solution for my condition. He explained each test and its purpose and also showed interest in what I have been through to come to him. A kind and thorough doctor whom I am looking to with great confidence in the outcome of the diagnosis he will share with me.

Wonderful. He saved my life. Extremely skilled. Listens carefully. My favorite of all my doctors.

Unless you are very rich, or have excellent insurance, they do not want you. The scheduler called me a liar over insurance. I have major digestive issues, including ostomy, rectal stump and pelvic floor issues. I have lost AT LEAST 10 ++ lbs. Since about Sept., 2015. No help from anyone....only turned away, because I am a poor, female , 60 years old, and now have NJ medicaid gack. It is true...when you are n.j. Medicaid...you yavw a 90++ % higher chance of dying that even the uninsured.
