  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract.

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Uncompassionate

I just left Dr. Parkman a few months ago. He has no bedside manner and didn't remember me from one visit to the next and I saw him every three months. I needed my gastric pacemaker battery changed Feb 1, 2016 and by the time his staff got around to getting it approved with my insurance and getting me scheduled for surgery it was May 18th and my battery had already died. All the while I kept calling his office complaining of pain, vomiting, nausea and the inability to eat. I lost 35 pounds from Feb 1st to May 18th because I couldn't eat, he could have cared less. He's not compassionate about the patient's condition or the fact that you can't eat and are in a great deal of pain. He's very, very conservative when it comes to the pacemaker settings and continually wants to set them at the lowest level. I've had my pacemaker for over 10 years and I need my settings pretty high for the pacemaker to be effective. He does what he thinks should be done regardless of your symptoms and doesn't really listen to you at all. You also have to wait weeks to months to get in to see him, even in an emergency.

If a Dr has a 2.8 review an still practicing something is wrong !!!!! He did a endoscopy on me without anesthesia, I was held down an slapped by his staff. Afterwards I was giving the wrong medication I told them not to give me because I broke out an when asked for Benadryl the left me there , I remember going to the E.R afterwards to see if my rectum was bleeding bec he jammed up my rear end , yelled at me an slapped me an he is allowed to do these things. He rarely spent anytime in an out with me an I went elsewhere only to be diagnosed wit hpylori infection !!! Which is a contributing factor to my diagnosis. He called me an addict in which I was recovering from Brain surgery an other injuries an he made my life a nightmare by his inhumane care or lack of concern. Never apologized an because I didn't have a tear they said I couldn't sue him . Excuse but haven't I been thru enough. I'm glad my neurosurgeon decided to put to sleep during brain surgery!!!

Excellent doctor, top in his field. Went from suffering through life daily to being able to go out and do a lot of things i used to do. Travel from Virginia to Philly to see him, best choice i ever made. All others not even close to his knowledge and expertise.

The Absent Minded Professor

This guy (wouldn't even call him a doctor) is from out of space! He always is saying give me your symptoms but don't give me too many. He never reads any reports that you send him or any other reports that any of your other doctors send him. He doesn't like questions asked. He is too busy typing on his computer and doesn't like to look at you or doesn't like to listen to you. I went to him - had some tests done - I am worse now then before I started seeing him. He doesn't remember much. I had to supply all of my paperwork to him, which he already had and didn't bother to look at it. And if you ask him more than he can handle, he says if you want me to treat you - no more questions. What kind of quack is this? I've been to several GI doctors - and he is the worse. I was recommended by another GI doctor to go to him (some GI doctors don't know him at all). Wait until I go back to my GI doctor and let him know what kind of quack this guy is.
