Treatment Philosophy
My approach to patient care includes obtaining a careful patient history of the symptoms, obtaining carefully selected tests to evaluate the patient's symptoms, reviewing the results of the tests with the patient and deciding on the appropriate treatment for the symptoms and disorder together.

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.

I constantly recommend Dr Parkman to anyone I encounter who has gastroparesis. He is so knowledgeable - even about a rare genetic mitochondrial disorder my geneticist is testing me for. He is the ONLY dr out of my several specialists who knew anything about it. He wasn't just aware, he was KNOWLEDGEABLE. If you ever need a patient to appear in a commercial for TUH, I am your woman. TUH is the best hospital. [...]

Dr Parkman is amazing. [...] he is empathetic, extremely knowledgeable in gastroparesis. driven to find the answers as to the why's of gastroparesis relating to my specific case, caring and excellent bed-side manners. He always listens to me and together we work to find out how my quality of life with gastroparesis can improve. That alone is so important to me.
