Dr. Parkman listens to me when i talk to him about my condition. He is very attentive and focused on me. He is very thorough for the specialty service that he provides. I would definitely recommend him to others and I'm glad I've been referred to him as a patient.

Dr is very pleasant and did not rush me but when I am not feeling well and need advice, the on line msg doesn't seem to ever get a reponse as to what I can do when I am in a lot of pain.. I would like more advice between appointments if possible.
