Sackets Harbor, NY |
I was able to schedule an appointment with Dr Parker within 2 weeks of seeing my PMD for left hip pain which made weight bearing very painful. After x-rays, Dr Parker assured me that the hip joint looked good, i.e. no need for surgical intervention! What a relief!!! My dx. of trochantour bursitis (ITB) L hip could be treated with PT- 2x wk. for 6 wks. I have successfully completed the PT and have had good results.

I would NOT recommend Dr. Parker to anyone. He dressed unprofessionally (casual shorts), was very sarcastic and condescending. It was difficult to know whether he was kidding or being serious. He also took less than 5 mins to diagnose my condition, which might be accurate, but I want to feel like my provider is taking the time to get to know me and my body. He has a medical student with him, so it is unclear whether he was showing off for the student's benefit. Either way, I won't be back

Dr. Parker is another example of how great your doctors are at SOS!! Knowledgeable, kind, explained everything completely and he listened to my concerns! I feel very safe in his hands!

Dr. Parker took over my care after I had surgery in DC due to a fall. He was also my doctor for a knee replacement last November. He is always professional, skilled and responsive to any concerns I had. I always recommend him to my senior colleagues as they remarked on my speedy recoveries under his care.

He's not only a great doctor, he seems to really care. He does not rush you out the door. He has a good sense of humor.

I have had the pleasure of being Dr. Parker's patient since May of 2014. I have never had such faith in a physician as I have with Dr. Parker. He has always been upfront and honest. My condition was unique and he never steered me wrong. I'm glad that Dr. Axelrod was honest enough to say that he didn't feel qualified to perform my surgery and that he enlisted faith in Dr. Parker the night I broke my tibia plateau. Dr. Parker is professional yet down to earth. I will continue to recommend hi

Dr. Parker is terrific. He saw me very quickly, gave me great information, and has been easily accessible and very helpful since.
Castorland, NY |
I received a cortisone shot in my right shoulder and am happy to report that it is remarkably improved since that visit. I asked Dr. Parker to look at my right thumb & lower hand which had been swollen and painful for 3-4 weeks. After his examination and x-ray he recommended I see Dr. Murphy. He introduced me to him and stayed while Dr. Murphy explained a surgery I would need to correct it. Dr. Parker is a amazing, caring surgeon - call for an appointment with him, you'll be so glad you did!

Baldwinsville, NY |
Dr. Parker is very attentive, walks you through what treatment will be. He will answer any questions. He is knowledgeable and caring, I have had both hips replaced, with much anxiety, he made it much better. I would always research what he told me, just to find him correct! I would never go to anyone else. He is an excellent Dr. I can walk, dance, and hike, where before I could not!
in East Syracuse, NY |
Dr. Parker did a full right knee replacement for me on 12/29 and the results have been excellent. Recovery does take a lot of work as I was told but couldn't have had a better experience than I had, especially talking to others having had the same surgery and their own experiences.
in Manlius, NY |
knowledgeable, experienced, relates well and communicates well with patient.
