Dr. Parr was rude and condescending from the moment the first appointment began. He accused me of only being interested in a law suit in the first 1-2 minutes of meeting me. He accused me of not being in the pain I described. He continued to discount my pain throughout my treatment and called it out of proportion to my injury after referring me to a surgeon because he said there was nothing else he could do.

This a rude and arrogant old man who needs to retire but does not know how. I chose an appointment with him thinking that he might have some empathy and compassion for my lifelong painful condition called Spondylolithesis. NOPE. I was told by Phillip Parr that I was a drug seeker and if I wanted drugs "I should go buy them on the STREET" He feels free to demean you and insult your integrity without caring about the pain you have been experiencing.

Would not have even given one star. He is a very angry individual. Maybe burnt out due to being the primary work comp provider. Actually walked out on me saying I was complicating his life.

Very clear and detailed explaining symptoms and choices on what can be done. Nice guy and to the point. Which is great since I don't go to Dr's for chit chat. Highly recommend.

I wish this doctor would retire. He makes you feel like you are crazy for having the symptoms that you have. I have severe lower back pain. After two years at OI I have worse pain than when I started. He told me the solution was to ride a bike for weight loss but it hurts too much to ride on a bike seat. I will not recommend him to anyone.

Went with a work comp issue with pains in my wrists, I asked about an ergonomic keyboard since I typed all day at wotk. He actually asked me "what's that". You would think most educated people would take the words "ergonomic" and "keyboard" and not need an explanation. Changed to a different doc after that afternoon was happy.

I would not recommend this dr to anyone. He is incredibly rude and disrespectful when he speaks to you. He discredits any and all information that you give him, even when from other accredited doctors. He asks questions in a rhetorical, degrading, way as if to make you feel stupid for even being at his office. He then told me his stance as an orthopedic is to only be concerned with functional skill ability, and didn't care about the pain I experienced while functioning.
Gainesville, FL |
Very helpful, listened to all my needs and explained things in detail to where I could understand. Had a little bit of a wait but was grateful he could work me in with such short notice!
