Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

My experiences have been good when Dr. Parshley is available. In the past, I've had a couple of medical problems when my provider was away from the clinic which were unsatisfactory.

I am a big fan of Dr Parshley. Very attentive and asks a lot of questions. Sometimes she's running a little behind, but I don't mind because, once she's with you, you never feel rushed, she gives you all the time you need, and I feel that is ver important. Have been seeing her since roughly 1990.

She spent the time to address each of my issues and determine a course of action. It took some time to weed through my multiple health issues, but the results turned out to be great and the diagnosis and treatment were right on.

The only complaint I have is how hard it is to get information from my provider either by phone or email. When I am in her presence, she is the best doctor in the world, but it is hard to reach her.

Requested info via my chart regarding a question and care, reader of my question did not pass it on to Dr. Parshley as had been stated according to Dr. Parshley when I asked her directly and replied to two different email questions that I needed to come in for a wellness exam never addressing my actual question despite me scheduling a wellness appointment but still asking for an answer to my question over my chart.

I had a urgent need that required immediate attention, she arranged for me to see a specialist on the same day, who sent me to a surgeon who scheduled me for surgery the next day. I felt very well taken care of and the process was very smooth. Best coordination of care ever!

My comment has nothing to do with Dr. Parshley. If I could I would take her home as my private physician. This has to do with the fact that there is never the same medical assistant so you are unable to develop any type of relationship. I have gone to her over twenty years and have only know one medical assistant and she has been gone for a long time. Way too impersonal. If I were in poor health I would not be going to this clinic [...]
