He did surgeries on several of my family members. All of them had complications and had to be repeated. He is incompetent putting it kindly. Knife happy! Hateful staff especially receptionist.

He did a surgery on my daughter, had some bad news post-surfery, and then we never saw him again. We have so many questions that as of yet, have to be answered. His staff is so rude and unhelpful.

I had the best experience with Dr. Parker. The staff was very kind and efficient. Dr. Parker gave me a stem cell injection in my knee when the only other choice was knee replacement! It worked. I'm looking forward to having my other knee done. It was an amazing experience and I'm very thankful. I'd recommend Dr. Parker and his team to everyone!

Would not recommend at all. Office visits and office personnel are the absolute worst especially the main lady that takes your name to check you in. Your appointment time doesn't matter to anybody. If you have an appointment at 8 in the morning then plan on being there until 10 before ever getting called back. All they care about is money and getting paid before ever even seeing the Dr. They wanted to charge me for a follow up on a surgery that he performed that still isn't right!

you were the one who did surgery on my son's elbow, his whole elbow is messed up when he extends his arm the bone pops up on top.Last yr someone recommend Scottish rite hospital in dallas to fix it we did an mri. Just a couple months ago he broke his other elbow in the exact same place n we went straight to dallas He did surgery n it looked so much better then you can ever imagine. Comparing the two arms and yours is the worst ever, you messed his arm up now they have to break it again to fix it

Dr. Parker went above and beyond my expectations and I would highly recommend him to anyone. He was my third opinion and there was no doubt that he was genuine, honest well educated and passionate about his job and patients. He took all the time I needed and answered all my questions and comforted me leading up to and through my surgery.
