    • “Dr. Parker relieved my pain after the second sciatica steroid injection. He was extremely empathetic when I told him the pain was excruciating. He not only did X-rays but sent me for an MRI. He is thorough, extremely knowledgeable, and caring. Thank you, Dr. Parker; I feel like a new person without pain.”
