I was super happy to choose Dr. Parker as my PCP. He is a genuine good human from the start. He helped me establish a home base for healthcare, without judgement, criticism or any negative feelings. he got all of my regular medications set up and made me feel very comfortable in trusting him that I would be able to contact him for any problem. I would recommend Dr. Parker to anyone.
