I was a patient of Dr Parks for around 13 years. I want to say he and his staff of PA's (including the office staff) are by far the best of the best. I had to relocate back to St Louis because I lost my home and all my possessions to a fire. I have been away now about 8 months, and still unable to find a new physician that will treat all of my issues, with the expertise and compassion of Dr Parks. If you find yourself in the Southern Illinois area, needing a PCP, I recommend Dr Jeff Parks 100%.
