"Highest recommendation!! Dr. Parker deserves more than 5 stars. I am so grateful he was referred by my PA to correctly diagnose nodules on my thyroid and help me to address hypothyroidism. He is an exceptional doctor, and a superb Endocrinologist. I always look forward to my appointments with Dr. Parker. He is extremely knowledgeable, thoughtful and caring and is sincerely warm and delightfully conversational -- he spends a great deal of time with me, putting me at ease and making me feel like I am his only patient. His vocal transcription of notes during his meticulous and thorough exams and ultrasounds are greatly appreciated. This helps me to fully understand my current condition. Hypothyroidism is under control thanks to Dr. Parker!"
