Dr. Parker is the best spine surgeon around!
I am so thankful that I ended up finding Dr. Parker. It took a few weeks of waiting for me to get in for a visit, but I am glad I waited. After spending 6 weeks in moderate pain, he got me in for surgery the day after my visit. Two weeks later, I feel great.
