Dr. Thorne (nee Parks) is wonderful, it is the office manager Gail who is ruining the practice. Everytime you are on the phone with her, she will make you feel like you are bothering her in some way or another. Never have I met someone so perpetually rude. And if you happen to walk in to the office when she is mid conversation with her pharmaceutical sales friends or the other girls behind the desk, well you better wait your turn because her gossip is WAY more important than your appointment! All I can say is, if you don't like people and don't want to be helpful, then don't work a customer service job... If there were a way to see Dr. Thorne without having to experience Gail time after time, I would probably stay at the practice, but she's just not worth it.

Outstanding doctor

Dr. Parks is not only knowledgeable but incredibly compassionate and empathic as well. She treated me with tremendous respect, listened to my concerns, and worked with me to make the best decisions. Her warmth and terrific sense of humor actually make a visit delightful. It's obvious that her staff enjoys working with her as well.

Scheduling

I took my mother to see Dr. Parks at the request of her family doctor. Our initial visit went very well. Dr. Parks had wonderful bedside manners and checked my mother out throughly. She ran several blood and urine test and took a series of xrays. We scheduled a follow up visit for two weeks later to obtain the results of the tests. I put the appointment in my phone calendar once it was confirmed. Her nurse asked if I needed a card and I told her no, my phone calendar was enough.We went to our appointment on the scheduled date and time only to find out the nurse had not put my mother on the schedule and had no follow up visit for her at all. My mother is 87 years old. She does not drive and my sister and I have to take off work in order to get her to her doctor's appointments. It is hard for me to get time off so I only schedule appointments when I know it is not going to be a problem. I can not be taking off all the time because of someone else's incompetancy.To sum it up, Dr. Parks herself was great but her staff has a lot to be desired.

Dr Alicia Parks

Of the 12 endocrinologists I have met for either myself or family members she is by far the best doctor I have ever met. My condition is VERY complicated and I have actually walked out of a few doctors offices because I found myself explaining things to the doctors themselves. Dr Parks is very knowledgeable, patient and compassionate. If you are looking for a new Endocrinologist I couldn't advocate for her more. I love my doctor and it took me 10 years to find her.

Excellent doctor!

When my diabetes went out of control for no reason and my thyroid went wacko, myinternal med doctor referred me to Dr Parks - she is wonderful! Explained to me exactly what is going on, gave me options, was very understanding about my financial situation and allows me to participate in my care. My diabetes is under MUCH better control now thanks to her.
