Dr. Parker and his colleague Dr. German performed arthroscopic surgery on my left shoulder for chronic dislocation. Everything from the front office,to the surgery, to the recovery were handled very professionally. The results were great and I was back swimming in a few weeks. Thank you Dr Parker...more

He is the best ever. End of story. Don't see anyone else. Me and family have been there for multiple bone breaks and aches. Hands down he is the man. Some day he will retire and I honestly can't say I do not know who could replace his expertise!
