      Dr. Parker and his staff are great until the fee is paid. Then if the surgery doesn't go as planned or if there are ANY complications afterwards, you may as well start seeking out a true physician. Dr. Parker is incompetent. I honestly believe that without God and the St. Mary's Wound Care Center that I would have died. If you are considering any type of cosmetic surgery, please, I BEG YOU to find a doctor that will see you through the best of times and the worst of times. A doctor that takes p

      My mom had a tummy tuck and the procedure went smoothly, but the healing process was anything but smooth. Her wound became extremely infected and resulted in a fever leading to the ER. Again, he told her everything looked normal. After a few additional days of fever and no healing progress, she saw Dr. Parker again where he assured her this was normal and was healing as expected. After wound care at St. Mary's for a month and nearly a year after the procedure she is still not 100% healed.

      Lets just call him a Fair Weather Physician. In the beginning he and the office staff were great. When the surgery didn't go as expected he became evasive and non-chalant. The staff became lass friendly and caring. He passed it off as It happens all the time and is no big deal. Well, it was a big deal to me. I was rather stunned by his apparent disinterest in my situation.

      This is by far my best experience in a medical office! Katie and Summer are so easy to talk to and schedule appointments around a busy schedule. I went in for a consultation and left the office with the desired procedure completed in less than an hour. I realize this cannot happen all of the time but it worked out perfectly. Dr. Parker's prices are better than most in Athens and he cares about the patients. He answered all of my questions before I could even ask.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
