Dr Parker performed a Colectomy and Sigmoidectomy With Robotic Assistance on me and I am grateful. His kind, unhurried, and competent manner inspired confidence and peace which made my life easier. He is the best (I was told that before) and I would recommend him without reservation.

He is the best! I recently had surgery for a rectal prolapse. Very little pain afterward. I wish I'd done it earlier. He is very knowledgable and takes all the time you need to explain and answer questions. The office staff is friendly and don't have to wait long for appt.
