Ted Parks, MD

My Approach to Treating Patients

"I believe that all patients should be treated with respect and dignity. Every patient deserves the direct attention and examination by their doctor, not just by a nurse practitioner or physician assistant. My staff and I work hard to limit waiting times to 30 minutes or less. We try to make your visit as comfortable and professional as possible.

I review the results of the examination, X-rays, other studies, etc., with the patient and do everything I can to help them understand their condition and the treatment options I recommend. Good decisions are the result of shared knowledge and mutual respect. Good decisions lead to good results."
