I have been a patient of Dr. Parkman since 2008. I wouldn't be alive today if it wasn't for him. If it wasn't for his data collection and research, many people would not survive gastroparesis. In order to effectively treat there must be research and data collection. Thank you, Dr.Parkman!!

My daughter has been seeing him for a few years unfortunately each visit proves more disappointing than the last. He I more interested in his testing data collection than actually helping patients. MY daughter was in TU for 2 weeks with a gastro flare up, much to my surprise, HE DOES NOT SEE HIS PATIENT IN HIS HOSPITAL. He belongs in a lab working with rats. Unfortunately he does know he field just doesn't care. Rather than stars his rating should be in bullets and I think 5 would be his number. Furthermore I went to Hopkins to get a different opinion, they all told me to go back to Parkman, that's who they follow, what a crime.

I have seen Dr. Parkman for a year now. I actually started with Dr. Fischer. Dr. Fischer suggested I get the pacemaker for my Gastroparesis issues. I signed the papers and at surgery I met Dr. Parkman. He sort of took over my case. I too met Venessa. She was only twice with me. Just sort of helped set up things for Dr. Parkman. I never had to wait when I come for a visit. Only once I did, but for the most I never really have to wait long. He has been always helpful and answers my questions. If I need refills for medication he gives them to me. I came to him knowing that I already had Gastroparesis so I didn't have to go through all the tests. I did that with my local doctors in NJ. I do commute two hours to see him. There are so few doctors in our area who know anything of GP. The doctor who diagnosed me with GP new very little in general and when he did not no what to do with me sent me to Dr. Fischer. He was actually an acquaintance of him. So now I have only one doctor my NJ doctor did not want to see me anymore more because I have Dr. Parkman now as my doctor. I have the pacemaker now almost a year. I had no complications from the surgery. I did have it done at Temple University Hospital. I have had four adjustments. I suffer from constant vomiting that is my worst symptom and nausea, early satisfaction from eating. For the most you have to give him a chance. He knows a lot more than most doctors I have seen. One visit will not cure Gastroparesis. It has no real cure. So you got to find ways to get around it.

Saw Dr. P for 8 years as he was the alledged best for gastroparesis. No bedside manner, totally disinterested even as I dropped 30 lbs off my petite frame in horrific pain. Much more interested in stats and grants than patients quality of life. Constantly wanting to do tests and procedures he had already done. Always a prescription for everything. Vanessa his assistant actually yawned 3 times while I was doubled over in pain, then neglected to call in a script that I needed but neither of them had told me they were putting me on new med so I didn't know to ask pharmacy. When I went back 6 weeks later worse, they both were puzzled why that med wasn't helping, I advised they never prescribed it and they both laughed it off. I would not recommend Temple Digestive Disease to my worst enemy. The whole show is assembly line medicine, a money making machine with no quality of care or service. A disgrace!

He is an academic, but is so caught up in it, he doesn't have the time or interest to treat you.

He is arrogant and condescending. Won't answer questions or have conversation. Won't return phone calls or emails. Doesn't report back test results and forces you to come to office for a 5 minute visit that could have been taken care of by phone. Takes weeks to get a prescription. Doesn't even call back pharmacy when they have a question on prescription. He has zero bedside manner and should not have patients. No empathy and treats everyone as if they are stupid and have no right to question why to anything

I came to Dr. Parkman to help with my severe gastroparesis. At my first visit I weighed 90 lbs and was very very sick. Would I want to go out to dinner with Dr. Parkman? Probably not. Did he help me? In ways I never imagined. So, yes, when we enter the waiting room my husband and I place a bet with each other choosing our wait time to be "over or under" 2 hours. It is usually close to two. Then we meet with Vanessa and she spends a lot of time asking questions to enter things into the computer. Then Dr. Parkman comes in and chats. He forgets all sorts of things:, for instance that I am not a diabetic, have allergies to medications, etc. A minor annoyance I suppose but he knows more about severe gastroparesis than any doctor I have seen, has access to cutting edge treatment, and teaches and researches this debilitating disease every day with an obvious passion. Although horrible at scheduling and returning phone calls AND have significantly improved my quality of life.
