Dr. Parker was able to accommodate my schedule to see him. The wait was adequate and his receptionist was very nice and informative. I had received steroid injections in the past at another location but no-one had shown me my MRI and explained to me in detail my condition. He was able to get me in the next week for an ESI. I highly recommend.

Dr. Parker tried to find a solution for pain and was adequately successful. During my relocation to another state, he denied refilling a pain medication because I had been prescribed another pain medication by my family doctor. Because I was prescribed this pain medication and failed to notify his office (which was an error on my part)he accused me of having an opioid addiction. Of greater concern, he gave no guidance for discontinuing the dangerous medication Fentynal, which he had prescribed.

Dr Parker treated me like I was his sister. He understood that a life on pain meds is not what I wanted and gave me of other options. He calmed my fears about lumbar ablation. His nurse, Becky, is great. She cares about you and wants to make things as simple as possible. Recommend all who are in pain to call, you won't regret it!

I saw Dr.Parker this past week and I he really is a good doctor, he went out of his way to help me, and I was in a tough spot because my other pain doctor dropped me because his PA left him and he couldn't see all of his patients and I was one that got dropped. But Dr Parker is kind, caring and just right up front!!! His nurse and staff are wonderful and I am happy he is doing what is best for me!!
