in Brandon, MS |
I am a new patient with Dr. Parks and have a rare auto-immune disorder complicated with Deg. Arthritis. At first was reluctant to attend Baptist Premiere for I had been there prior with 2 other doctors. Dr. Parks was a pleasure to meet and I was pleased with the knowledge she had concerning my condition.She is thorough and genuine in helping me gain quality of life. Yes, I would and do recommend her to those whose conditions need a good doctor of which Dr. Laura Parks is definitely one.

I liked Dr parks initially, but I had to go online to view my results. They are horrible at calling you to follow up on lab results. It was my first visit, but I would not go back because of the communication after the visit.
