Dr. Parks, Rita and all of the staff at APM are outstanding. I had suffered from non-stop pain for years, had been to multiple specialists trying to find the source of the pain, and it wasn’t until I went to APM that I was correctly diagnosed. Even Mayo had missed it, but Rita and Dr. Parks found it. I would recommend them to anyone.

Was unfriendly. Insisted added tests. My back injections were the most painful I had ever received.

I received 12 shots for facet joint pain only to be told that Dr. Parks could not do the ablation because I hadn't received 80% relief from the shots. No one explained that to me beforehand. My other complaint is that I want a physician to look me in the eyes and take the time to talk to me. I felt I was intruding. I don't care what your schedule is; talk to your patient.

After years of pain, I have found the most thorough Dr. to diagnose and treat my condition. I have regular appointments and his team is considerate and consistent. I always leave feeling a little bit better about the direction of my treatment and long term recovery prospects. The staff is accommodating, helpful, and caring. I have been to other docs in town and they do not compare to the expertise of Dr.Parks

He was VERY HELPFUL to me. I had pains in Lwr Back and Hip. My Orthopedist did X-rays and MRI in the lower back, did physical therapy but didn't SOLVE the problem. I found Advanced Pain Medicine Assoc. and Dr. Parks by internet search - showed they had experience in diagnosing CAUSE as well as treating of pains. They used "pain treatment" also to explore my cause, then ordered an MRI of the Hip - -that showed severe Osteoarthritis. He also recommended good surgeons to fix it. GREAT doctor.

Dr. Parks is the best surgeon and I have total trust in him and the advice that is given to me by my pain management advisor. PA. Rita is awesome to work with. She is a great listener and explains everything in great detail, which makes me feel very comfortable with the treatment plan she has recommended for me. The experience I have every time I have an appointment is a positive one. The ladies at the front desk are very personable and treats you like you are one of their friends.

I've been seeing Dr. Parks for 7 years and in that time I have never had a bad experience with them. Some people don't like the way his office is run. Dr. Parks only does procedures so you will not see him on a regular basis. You typically see either his PA which is Rita Simpson or a nurse once a month for them to do a pill count assuming you're on narcotics.. The office staff could not be more friendly and respectful. They make an effort to remember my name.

Dr. Parks was great. I am glad I didn't believe all the bad reviews. His staff and and the doctor made me very comfortable and was the easiest injection I have ever had. The bad reviews were probably from drug seekers who didn't get what they wanted.
