Dr. Parks' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Parks "I graduated from University of Tennessee Medical School and finished my surgical residency at Ochsner Clinic 2003. Upon completion of my general surgery training, I elected to do a fellowship in Colon and Rectal Surgery with Georgia and Colon and Rectal Surgical Associates in Atlanta, Georgia. Working in the surgical arena, and in particular the Colon and Rectal field, provides me with the opportunity to successfully treat both benign and malignant diseases using medical and surgical approaches creating a lasting impact for the patient. When not working, my primary interests are spending time with my family and traveling. "
