They forgot to have me sign paperwork to repair septum. Did surgery in left sinus. The right sinus was the one that required surgery. I had to go back in 2 weeks to get the correct surgery. Horrible experience.

Dr. Parke took me on a referral for a diagnosed parotid (salivary) gland cancer. It had advanced rapidly and had already spread to lymph nodes in my neck and shoulder. Dr. Parke saw me immediately, explained what needed to be done, and made room on his schedule to operate within a week. I credit the quick action with saving my life, or at least a much-improved result. I didn't need a lot of hand-holding, so I appreciated his not beating around the bush. He answered all my questions succinctly, and performed a complicated surgery with skill that saved most of the function of my facial nerve. Afterwards, he coordinated the radiation and subsequent tests that have been part of my recovery. I thank God for leading me to Dr. Parke, and I thank him for taking care of me like he did.

Dr. Parke removed an enlarged left thyroid that was pressing up against my windpipe. He did a great and awesome job. I'm greatful for his skills and knowledge. He's the best. He's very caring kind and has such a sweet sense of humor. Thanks for what you done for me and my family. I'm forever grateful.

After being referred for deviated septum because it’s something I’ve dealt with practically my entire life, I told him I had tried the nasal sprays (did not work) and was Looking for another option, what does he do? Tell me it’s not so bad that it’s normal for me to not be able to breath and sends me on my way with nasal sprays and we’ll see if surgery is an option even though he had just said it probably wasn’t gonna help? Save your time and effort and look for someone who actually cares

Dr Robert Parke has treated our family for three generations and saved the life of one of our father. He is not only skilled, but kind, caring and professional. Recently, Dr. Parke was on call near the Christmas holiday; I was suffering with pain. He asked me to meet him at his office on a holiday where he performed a twelve minute procedure for which I had seen four other doctors with no relief. I, and my entire family, wholeheartedly endorse Dr. Parke. He is the best!!

My husband had a growth on his neck & went to Dr Parke by reference. Dr Parke took a look at his throat, told us it didn't look good, & sent us downstairs for a biopsy. It was cancer. Dr Parke is no frills, this is what we have, this is what we will do. He removed the tumor & sent us to chemo & radiation drs. He was the point of contact for all and stayed on top of his care every step of the way. He is now 5 years cancer free. I highly recommend him & his team of highly skilled doctors.
