I am truly grateful to Dr. Parker. Prior to visiting Dr. Parker I had seen numerous doctors who could not offer abdominal myomectomy because they all told me my fibroid was too big and the only option was a hysterectomy which I did not want. When I met Dr. Parker for an consultation I immediately felt at ease and I knew I found the right doctor who could help me get rid of the large cantaloupe size fibroid. Dr. Parker, his staff and everyone at the Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center exceeded all of my expectations. 22 fibroids were removed during surgery. I was worried about the pain level but thanks to the ON-Q pain pump for the first few days I experienced very little pain. The hospital stay was amazing. Recovery has been wonderful. It is an unbelievable feeling to be fibroid-free! Having rested for 3 weeks now I am returning to work next week. I am going to recommend Dr. Parker to all of my friends because being under his compassionate and skilled care I believe he is the best gynecologist in America!

I came to Dr. Parker following a diagnosis of a very large mass that my gynecologist believed to be a uterine sarcoma. I consulted with doctors in my area who insisted that the only way to extract the mass was by way of a hysterectomy involving a very large incision. Being only thirty years old and desiring children in the future, I was terrified at the thought of losing my ability to have a baby and being diagnosed with cancer at such a young age. When my gynecologist continued to pressure me to undergo the hysterectomy as soon as possible, I decided to do my own research and came across Dr. Parker’s website. I spent countless hours reviewing the information on his site; everything from his videos to his research and his credentials. It was then that I decided to give Dr. Parker a call. All my fears were put to rest as soon as I had my initial consultation. Dr. Parker was thorough, well informed, listened to all my concerns, and encouraged my questions…truly professional in every way. Whereas other doctors I had seen were in awe at the size of my abdomen, Dr. Parker treated me with respect and never made me feel stupid for having gone undiagnosed for so long. He allowed me the opportunity to be part of my treatment plan and we worked together to put together a timeline for surgery that worked for me. Thanks to Dr. Parker’s expertise I was able to put my anxiety to rest and I was able to wait a few months to have the myomectomy.

I am currently two and a half months post surgery and I couldn’t be happier. Dr. Parker successfully extracted a six-pound fibroid leaving only a barely visible scar along my bikini line and leaving my uterus intact. Dr. Parker kept me informed through every step of the process and went above and beyond what I ever expected from a doctor. He truly is the best, most caring doctor you will encounter in the area of fibroids. I would sincerely encourage every woman who has been diagnosed with a uterine mass to seek Dr. Parker’s opinion.

Words can't even express how grateful I am to Dr. Parker. My husband and I had been trying to get pregnant for nearly 2 years. We finally decided to get some help and was nearly mislead by a less experienced doctor. We discovered that I had two fibroids, one was of substantial size - 16cm. It had distorted my uterus which we suspect was the cause of the infertility. The original doctor suggested we do nothing to the fibroid and get pregnant aggressively with the help of IUI/IVF. There were obviously some concerns given the size of the fibroid. Even if we were able to get pregnant, we were also concerned that I wouldn't be able to carry the baby to term. I was obsessed and wanted to make the best decision for myself. Google was my best friend and I read up on anything I can find about fibroids and that's how I found Dr. Parker. Everywhere I saw his name, his patients raved about him. I needed a second opinion and I knew he was the doctor I needed to get it from.

After a visit with Dr. Parker and a visit with a fertility doctor that he recommended, we decided as a team that it was in my best interest to remove the fibroids. I was scared. I've never had such an invasive surgery and I've never spent the night at the hospital before. Dr. Parker's office staff were incredible at securing all the necessary paperwork I needed for work, for my insurance, etc. They were quick, efficient and kept me posted every step of the way.

My surgery was a success! It had minimal impact on my uterus, which was so important to me. After only a few weeks, my uterus is located where it should be and nearly back to its normal size. During surgery, the nurse kept my family informed of the progress. Once the surgery was completed, Dr. Parker found my family and updated them himself. Even though the surgery was a bit more complicated given the location of the big fibroid (it was tucked away behind some organs), I had minimal blood loss and had responded well to the surgery. My recovery was amazingly quick. I was doing laps around the hospital floor the first night after surgery and I was off of pain medication once I was discharged from the hospital. Every day I was in the hospital, Dr. Parker would call to check up on me every night. In the morning, he and the assisting doctor would stop by my room to see how I was doing. Per the direction of Dr. Parker, the hospital staff was incredible as well. I had such a great experience and couldn't have asked for a better, more caring and experienced doctor. Thank you to Dr. Parker, we are excited about the future and our family!

Dr. Parker performed abdominal myomectomy on me in June with great success. Last fall my gynecologist found I had numerous fibroids (largest one is ~10cm) and my size of uterus was about the size of a 12 week pregnancy. The fibroids caused very heavy bleeding and anemia. I consulted with two gynecologists with many years of practices in Austin. Both doctors suggested hysterectomy for my growing fibroid problem. I was told by the two doctors removing the fibroids is a much bigger, much more complicated surgery than hysterectomy and it did not work on my case.
Fortunately, I came across Dr. Parker’s website while I was researching online. Dr. Parker’s website is very informative on fibroid and fibroid research. I immediately contacted Dr. Parker’s office and mailed my MRI reports and CD to seek for a second opinion. Thankfully I was able to get an appointment quickly and it was the best thing ever. At the initial consultation, Dr. Parker showed me the fibroid MRI images and took time to explain all the treatment options on my case, what to expect and the advantages of each option. He also thoroughly answered any questions that I had. Dr. Parker made me feel comfortable right away. He is very knowledgeable and nice. I knew he was the doctor I would trust to actually do the surgery so I decided to go with abdominal myomectomy option.
Eight weeks later I flied back to LA. I had pre-op lab work and pre-surgery appointment with Dr. Parker on Friday. I had myomectomy the following Monday morning at 10:00 at UCLA medical center. Dr. Parker came into the pre-op room to see me before the surgery. The surgery went on very well and took about 1.5 hours. Dr. Parker removed 13 fibroids of various sizes with minimum blood loss. I stayed at UCLA medical center for two more days till Wednesday. I was able to walk to the bathroom the night of the surgery. Dr. Parker stopped by every morning and called me every afternoon. He is very kind and caring with incredible bedside manner. I was discharged the third day and was able to walk back to the apartment four blocks away from UCLA medical center. At day 5, I went back to Dr. Parker’s office and Dr. Parker removed the ON-Q pain pump. The nurse removed my suture at day 7. I stayed in Santa Monica for about 10 days after surgery. From the 3rd day I was out walking around the neighborhood every day and walking helped a lot on recovering. I felt better and stronger each day. I went back to work three weeks after surgery. My heavy bleeding/anemia problem is solved. Also my back pain which bothered me for years is also gone after the surgery! I just went back to Dr. Parker for 6 weeks post-op visit and everything goes well. My uterus size is back to normal. I even did a 3.5 mile hike at Santa Monica Mountains the day after the office visit!
Dr. Parker is the best doctor I ever experienced. His office staff are all very nice and helpful. I feel extremely fortunate to have met Dr. Parker to perform myomectomy on me. I highly recommend Dr. Parker to any women who are bothered by fibroids and look for a second opinion or treatments.

Dr. Parker is great. I would have never done this surgery with someone else.
I had 3 fibroids and Dr Parker was able to get them out through laparoscope. I lost my baby at 22 weeks because of these fibroids and my wish was to be able to get pregnant again. I was very nervous about the surgery but Dr Parker was great and took very good care of me during surgery. And guess what, I am 37 weeks pregnant right now thanks to him. I could have not asked for a better doctor. He always listened to my concerned, answer all my questions, answer my emails very fast and even called me next day after the surgery to make sure everything is ok. I am glad I flew across the country to have this surgery with him.
Thank you Dr. Parker!

I will give a 0 to the office staff. They work as though they are doing a favor for free to the patients even though it is their job and they are being paid to do it!

Dr. Parker is Cool!

I went to four different doctors in my area and none of them would take out my fibroids because I was told they were too big and that I needed a hysterectomy. After reading a few books on hysterectomies I decided that was not the route I wanted to go. During this time it just so happened I came across Dr. Parker's website a second opinion. After reading through the reviews such as you are now doing. I made an appointment and within three months I was fibroid free. I am still healing, but I have no regrets, it was the right decision for me. I hope this helped.
