Dr. Parks has been amazing. My life had changed on April 5th when I was in a head-on collision. He has always communicated exactly what he will be doing, even when there is more than one possible outcome. He’s very honest and direct and has always accurately told me what to expect. I have one more surgery to go, and I wish he was the one doing so, but I know he will be putting me in great hands. His medical assistant Dee and his care coordinator Tammy have been an amazing team to work with as well and are always available to answer my questions and assist in any way possible. Thank you guys so much!
