Improved Health
With Dr Parks guidance I already see improvements in my overall health. Dr Parks listened to my needs and set up appointments for me with the right specialists (in a very timely manner) as appropriate. The office staff are all lovely to work with as well. I find it's especially comforting knowing Dr Parks is reachable after hours too!

Dr. Parks is by far the best Primary Care Physician I have ever had. In the last 18 months she has guided me through a cure for my insomnia. She called me on a Saturday to give me the best website at the time so I could get my Covid 19 vaccination. When it came time for my knee to be replaced she assisted me with a second opinion which changed the type of surgery I ended up going with. Post surgery she checked in to make sure my recovery was going well. Dr. Parks is patient, empathic, a good listener and is so very intelligent. She is a real partner in my healthcare. I feel very blessed to have her on my healthcare team. After working with her for 6 months my husband joined her practice too.

I really appreciated Dr. Parks knowledge and caring. I had been to a few subspecialists and she was able to add a broad overview perspective to my medical journey and focus on important details. She is a rare find, I am very grateful for her expertise.

Dr. Parks is an amazing all around physician and joining her practice was one of the best decisions I could have made. The extra attention that I receive as part of the concierge practice is something I had been looking for for several years and has improved the quality of my care tremendously. The office even helps me navigate the healthcare system by arranging appointments with specialists and scheduling testing. This is truly "white glove" service!

I was searching for a new PCP on the Blue Cross website and Dr. Parks came up as accepting new patients with Blue Cross. I called the office to schedule an appointment only to be told that in addition to BlueCross, I would need to pay Dr. Parks $6000 a year for "concierge service". Seriously?!? She shouldn't be affiliated with Blue Cross if she expects the patients to slip her more on the side.
