Specialties

Dr. Mark Parker has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Endocrinology

    Endocrinologists treat disorders related to our glands and the hormones they produce. Because hormones play a key role in the growth and development of children, these conditions often pose different threats to children than they do adults. That’s where a pediatric endocrinologist comes in.
    They can diagnose and treat hormonal disorders such as abnormal thyroid function, growth complications and early or delayed puberty. Ambiguous genitals as well as ovarian and testicular dysfunction are also part of their expertise. Childhood obesity, diabetes and problems with low blood sugar also tie back to hormone function and may require consulting with a pediatric endocrinologist.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Amazing Doctor

Dr. Parker is an amazing Endocrinologist. He has been our cheerleaders from day one. When he met Landen in the hospital we were so grateful to have been referred to him. I'm sure all the doctors are amazing because I have heard nothing but amazing things about the entire practice but we love Dr. Parker.

Child with hypothyroid

Dr. Parker began seeing my daughter when she was 6 months old and she is now 14. He has always met her where she was; encouraged her and informed her. Dr. Parker is a gem among rocks in the medical profession for patient care. Others should take a page from his playbook about how to care for the whole patient. Very thankful for this great doctor.
