  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Terrible Customer Service

Dr Linda Parker is a good doctor, my bad experience comes with Dorothy, the receptionist. One of the rudest people I have ever came in contact with and talked to over the phone. She is the sole reason for me and my whole family to go to another family nurse practitioner. She needs to be fired.

Good.Doctor

Dr. Parker was very nice to me. The staff was professional and attentive. I am a transfer from the VA and the difference is refreshing and greatly appreciated. I forgot what it's like to be treated like a human again. She addressed all my concerns , even those I didn't know I had. I highly recommend this Dr.

Five Stars

I have been seeing Dr Parker for about 20 yrs and recommend her to anyone. She is one doctor that I know will always tell me the whole truth and I appreciate that very much. She works me in and spends as much time as needed to make sure I understand what I need to do and why I need to do it. I might wait a little past the appointment time but she is giving another patient the same great service that she gives me. Down to earth and without the arrogance of so many of the other doctors I have seen. I have even had her explain suggested treatments by other Specialist Doctors because I trust Dr Parker.

rude and unprofessional

this is my mother's doctor. she is always upset after she had an appointment with this doctor. my mother is limited with her physician options due to her out of state insurance. She tells me that Dr. Parker is rude and uncaring. i gave my mother a list of questions to ask, one being what's her rational for requiring her patients to have an appointment every three months? This is foreign practice to us, but the only explanation given is "it's our policy". My mother doesn't have a medical condition that requires follow up every 3 months. The more questions asked, the more irritated the doctor became. she eventually told my mother "I can't stand patients like you!" and the moment my mother missed one of her 3 month appointments and needed a refill, the refill was denied because she hadn't been seen in 4 months. who does that??!?!?!? by the way, these are meds my mother has been on with the same dosage for over 5 years and they were not prescribe by Dr. Parker. In other words, she was managing her conditions with her meds, and this doctors office held her refills "hostage" and allowed her to run out because she didn't have an appointment. after driving up to the office to find out why they considered allowing a patient to go without their medication is good practice, the refills were called into the pharmacy that afternoon. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND DR. PARKER TO ANYONE. AND I REFUSE TO ALLOW MY MOTHER TO GO BACK TO THAT OFFICE. i'm sure she gets the bulk of her patients by being one of the few doctors in the area to take certain out of state insurances and medicare. if i could rate negative stars, i would
