I had an endoscopy done by Dr. Parsons last week. It was my first ever procedure in a hospital and I was very nervous! The nurses and doctor made me very comfortable and it was over in a breeze. Dr. Parsons and his assistant were excellent with asking all the right questions and it really made me feel more comfortable being honest about some embarrassing symptoms. 100% recommended.

Dr. Parsons immediately identified a somewhat rare pancreatic condition and confirmed his suspicions quickly as a diagnosis after an invasive procedure. He referred me to his surgical colleague, immediately. That accelerated diagnosis and prompt follow-up attention probably saved my life. I am grateful for his directness and the urgency with which he handled my case.

I have worked with Dr Parsons for over 10 years over sensitive issues and find him very thorough, and very careful to test before recommending a treatment. The results of his treatments have been excellent. And he is easy to talk with and lay out problems with concerns.
