Ding Dong with Power over Important Medications

After 9 years my regular physician didn't want to prescribe anxiety meds. He sent me to Dr. Parker. . I had no reason to fear drug test. After first test he says drug not in my system acussed me of selling them and calling police. Three months later he claimed I had a drug in my system that I would never take due to reading about it. He is a liar and a patient has no recourse but to suffer his own mental issues. Wasn't his job to help? I'll never be his victim again. I'm looking somewhere else and I'll just suffer with anxiety until I do. Good riddance you narcissistic morron.

Frightening

I agree with all reviews about dr Parker he cancelling appointments all the time, also he is using old medications that have terrible side effects i wonder how many patients he has lost since he has been a Dr also when was the last time he has been reviewed by the board. I have lived in many places and so far ky is the worst in mental health its bad all over the country but this state is the worst I have been mentally ill for most of my life fighting to stay alive Dr Parker is insane.i am calling the governor on this matter everyone who has written a review also needs to call the governor then maybe he will be replaced.

Very Disappointed

I have seen Dr. Parker several years and had always been satisfied with his care. However that has changed very suddenly. I saw him last week and he told me to change one of my meds. He said to call if I had a problem which I did. I have waited all day without a call back.

One Star

Would not recommend this Dr. to my worst enemy. He cancels appointments and has no compassion for patients whatsoever. Instead of listening to his patients, he goes on and on about his family. He often makes patients wait for prescriptions to be called in when they are in dire need. He should not be practicing in this field and should be turned in to the medical board for his inadequacies.

One Star

I agree totally with the other reviews! He is very rude and acts as if he is better because he can hide behind his desk. I do not recommend anyone to see him. I'm looking in to filing a complaint on him for his behavior and for putting me on two differant meds that react very bad together. I feel he does not care about his patients he just uses them as genie pigs to try meds on. He does not care the effect they have on people. Or he does not know what he is doing.
