Dr. Parker was born and raised in Atlanta. A knee injury required her to visit the doctor as a child and this interaction piqued her interest in medicine. She chose to become a doctor because of the combination of science and teaching. Shadowing a family medicine physician in college helped her make the decision to pursue family medicine.
Dr. Parker listens and takes time with each patient. She believes the ideal relationship between patient and provider puts the relationship itself at the center. She respects each patient’s life choices and understands that there is a lot of health information available. Dr. Parker feels it is her responsibility to help her patients make educated health care decisions, navigate the system and honor their wishes while also dealing with the scientific reality of each situation.
Dr. Parker has a special interest in integrative medicine. She supports patients utilizing these alternative options when evidence supports the safety of such methods. Dr. Parker also has a special interest in working with women during menopause.
In her free time, Dr. Parker enjoys spending time with her family, and reading and traveling to gain new perspectives.
