Specialties

Dr. Leroy M Parker has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    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.

  • Medical Oncology

    Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
    They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.

Breast cancer patient

My surgeon referred me to Dr. Parker and meeting him was like a breath of fresh air. The doctors at the medical practice I use generally are young and new and I generally do not relate so well with them, Dr. Parker has impeccable credentials, vast experience and an easy-going manner. I feel extremely well cared for by him, relate well with him and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone who wants a top-notch, experienced oncologist in the breast cancer field.

Good doctor but needs a course on bedside manners

I had Dr Parker as my first oncologist after my diagnosis. I found him to be sometimes moody. Its hard enough to deal with a stage IV diagnosis...I don't need to have to dance around my doctor's moods. I got another oncologist...its the best thing so far that I've done for my treatmnet.
