    Parrish is a wonderful care provider. Especially my orthopedic surgeon Dr David Schafer. He's the best. And I have total confidence in his abilities to care for my care needs.

    Ask me to explain my problem and then talked to me about all the treatment to do. Spent time and listen to me and was very helpful and not in hurry to get me out of there. Great job

    Dr. Schafer is fantastic. The office staff although very polite and nice did not seem to have the amount of information that I would expect. Not knowing when MRI test results were done was a nuisance and getting my information moved on to the specialist the Dr. recommended should not take several phone calls.
