    Dr. Parkinson encourages a healthy lifestyle of exercise and nutrition which matches my outlook as well. He is sensitive to sports related injuries, their treatment and prevention.

    We love Dr. Parkinson. He is a great listener and has a wonderful bedside manner. I wish he had openings because I have referred many people to him, but he isn't taking new patients now.
