My experience with Steven Parker was not at all good. I personally do not believe he has the skillset or demeanor to practice medicine. I'm amazed the AMA has not yet taken away his license to practice medicine. Not impressed.

My experience with Dr. Parker was absolutely the worst I have had with any doctor in my life. He was arrogant , condescending , dismissive , and rude. I've spoken with several other patients who had similar experiences with this ego in a good suit. I would never recommend this man to anyone.

I would not recommend this doctor to anyone. He did not treat my condition appropriately, and he was disorganized and completely incompetent. I think he may have mixed up my chart with someone else's because he submitted the incorrect information in a workers comp case which resulted in them discontinuing my care and now I am permanently disabled.
