Just wish he took more time but very sweet.The only bad part of this experience is that I live about an hour and a half away and the visit last for 4 minutes literally. I always take note of the wait time, and the time spent with the doctor. The provider is the kindest and absolute best but I was in the room waiting for him longer than what the time spent was. He asked was the medicine helping, he asked about his grades, and told me to try putting him in sports. He made him a cute balloon animal and told me to do a 6 month apt. All that took 4 minutes, he didn't have to touch him or anything so I feel like for appointments like this there should be a telemed option. Because at the end of the day we drove a total of 3 hours for a 4 minute appointment.

Dr. Parks takes the time to explain and address my child's health and is very thorough in assessing her needs and treatment concerns and recommendations.
