Dr. Parker provided excellent healthcare both before and after surgery. Three years after surgery and he is still concerned about my health and well being.

Would highly recommend Dr. Parker. I have seen him for years and finally had surgery in January and could not be more pleased with the result. He is not the type to hurry you into surgery and tries other options before that being a final decision. Great results from surgery and follow up. He has a great bedside manner and seems to really care about his patient.

Dr. Parker REALLY listen to me and my symptoms. I really thought my/his next step/option would be surgery. But he didn't once suggest surgery. Agreed to try more of the treatment I had been doing and getting some relief. Thank you Dr. Parker.

Great physician explains procedure length of surgery. Pre and post-operative information/ rehabilitation unit the greatest. Checks at least one to two times daily. Post OP during hospitalization

He is very personable Doctor. He is thorough and does not recommend surgery just because. In my case he does not recommend surgery as it would be a very major and very high risk. Comforting he looks at the total picture.

Dr. Parker and staff are so pleasant. He is an exceptional spine doctor. He's handled both of my back surgeries, I wouldn't trust anyone else. He has the best bedside manners in a doctor, he takes his time and answers all your questions.

Very honest and straightforward. He took his time analyzing my situation and had me referred to a nurosurgeon for a second opinion. He ended up doing the surgery and here I am 2 & 1/2 months later with a fantastic back. He was very understanding of my history. Most dr’s frown about chiropractors but he totall understood and did not minimize that I had been to them for 25+ years and they helped me dramatically. Matter of fact, it was my chiropractor that told me to get the mri.
