Ratings for Dr. D Andrew Parker
I had bilateral arthroscopic hip surgeries for FAI after months of debilitating hip pain that prevented me from exercising (or walking/sitting comfortably for that matter)- Dr. Parker was compassionate, knowledgeable, and always took the time to explain each step of the surgical process. He put all my fears to rest, and performed two flawless surgeries with no complications. After four months, I was progressing back to running and am pain free in both hips to this day! I am so thankful that I found Dr. Parker. I was nervous about the surgery, but he reassured me at each step of the process. He is a very kind and professional surgeon- Go straight to Dr. Parker if you have this condition! I am finally back to running because of him!
Dr. Parker has been my orthopaedic surgeon for almost 10 years! He's done numerous surgeries on both shoulders and hip. He is always very patient, conservative ( tries alternative therapies before surgery) and explain s your options very thoroughly. I couldn't imagine having anyone but him as my doctor he's the best!
I cannot recommend Dr. Parker highly enough. He is an extremely skilled surgeon, honest about expected outcomes, and truly has his patients' best interest at heart. He sets the standard for what you would expect from a top surgeon and his bedside manner is second to none.
Dr. Parker and his assistant, Kim Snow, have been incredible to work with this year. It's been 3 months since having the FAI and labrum tear surgery and I am on my way to reclaiming my activity level from 3 years ago. Dr. Parker and Kim have taken the time to answer questions and are very compassionate people. I feel so lucky and fortunate to have found them.
Dr. Parker is a very knowledgeable and helpful doctor. I read many reviews about him and decided that I would try him out to diagnose a hamstring injury I have been having for two months. He reviews information thoroughly and makes sure you understand fully what is going on with the injury. He's very willing to open himself for you to call him if you have any further questions and will make sure you leave the doctor's office knowing in full what options you have. I recommend him to anyone looking for a great orthopedics doctor.
I had bilateral FAI surgery with Dr. Parker. Of any doctor I have ever seen he is my favorite. Friendly, attentive, and compassionate. When I was diagnosed we worked with me to make a treatment plan instead of dictating to me what had to be done. He is NOT your typical cocky/condescending orthopedist. After exhausting all options, I opted with surgery. One day after hip surgery I was on my crutches moving around a mall. 12 weeks after surgery I was ice skating and returned back to playing ice hockey after 4.5 months. Dr. Parker has an amazing bedside manner and is an even better surgeon that gets results. You won't be disappointed and there's a reason why he is hard to get an appointment with. But the wait for an appointment is worth it.
I recently had hip arthroscopy surgery performed by dr parker and I am extremely happy with my recovery so far. He repaired a torn labrum and shaved bone off my hip. I have been using an ice machine around the clock and I'm using a CPM machine he ordered for me up to 4 hours a day. After the 2nd day after surgery I only take the pain meds before I go to sleep at night. Everyone I talked to said only great things about dr Parker and I now agree with all of them. His nurses also told me that his patients have a faster/ easier recovery. I am really thankful to have him as my doctor and highly recommend him.
