I had Dr Parker perform my surgery on August 31st 2017. After some initial problems "which by the way we're not Dr Parker's fault but problems on my side"the surgery was set up for the 31st. Having extreme anxiety about the surgery Dr Parker was as good as they get. A very compassionate man who who helped me tremendously overcoming the pre surgery jitters. Post surgery everything was communicated to myself and my family. His office called me already one day after surgery to answer any additional questions and status of my health. This is medical service that goes above and beyond. Professional service combined with a compassionate feeling. I recommend Dr Parker and his team to anyone who might be nervous. You will be taken care of. Thank You Andrew Parker and your team.
I only gave this clinic one star, because I couldn't give them none. I have seen Dr Parker in the distant past, but earlier this year (2016), I had some issues with my knee, and I made an appointment to see him. The pre and post-op appointments went well, but this Dr has an odd superiority complex... I accidentally said, "Yes sir", as merely a figure of speech a few times, because I am from Texas, and that is how we respond to each other. Each time, he went off on a tangent about he was just a human being, and I didn't have to call him sir. He has an unusual ego, considering I pay more in taxes than he nets... Then on my second follow-up post-op, I was left in the inside treatment room for over 45 minutes and no one, not Dr Parker, or anyone else ever came into the room... I left. I did not place that negative review at that time, but today, against my better judgement, I had made an appointment for Dr, Choudry, for a minor elbow injury, that I was concerned about. I live over an hour away, in another town, but wanted to go there, against my better judgement... So I took a half a day away from my businesses and my practice, to drive to Rose Medical Center. They annoyingly made me refill all of the paperwork, that was still current from six months ago, in spite of the appointment setter telling me that I would not need to fill anything out, so I had arrived accordingly... I sat there for the usual 30 minutes, then one of the ladies out front told me that Dr. Choudry was late from surgery and I would have to re-schedule for next week... I am so incensed by the behavior of this terrible clinic, and the fact that they took Mr from my employees, clients and prospects for no reason, twice, that I intend to spread the word, file formal complaints, and more. Don't waste your time with Dr. Parker. He has an odd personality, and loves to insult his patients. I could go on, but I have wasted enough of my valuable time with these people.
We apologize for your inconvenience and are sorry for the confusion over your appointments. We assure that it was never the intention of Dr. Parker to be rude, but will take your comments into consideration as we take all patient feedback seriously. We hope you will give us another chance as we do care about our patients and value every patient relationship.
