Dr. Parker is an excellent pediatrician. She takes our concerns seriously, explains everything in great detail, always addresses all of our questions, and is wonderful with our child.
I was very impressed by the level of service we experienced.
Dr. Parker is incredible. She is personable, caring, and extremely knowledgeable. We look forward to our daughters check-ups because Dr. Parker is the best.
Dr. Parker is absolutely the best. She is warm and friendly and our child really likes her.
She was really nice and helped us in the appropriate way. Guided us well about all the possibilities, discussed our concerns and addressed them too. It was a walk in visit for us for our congested 1.5 year old. I would recommend her very nicely to everybody.
Dr. Parker is excellent and we couldn't be happier with her care. She is very keen on adapting to speak to her patients and their parents at the appropriate level of their understanding, where most doctors just provide basic terms to keep the appointment moving along quickly. Dr. Parker understood immediately that I was advanced in medical terminology and adapted her explanations to fit this. She is also very comforting and likable. Very friendly and kind. I would recommend her to any parent looking for a pediatrician.
excellent care, always
we switched to Dr. Parker after Dr. Kovel's relocation and are completely satisfied with our choice in provider.
Dr. Parker is a wonderful physician. She displays kindness and intelligence and I fully trust her with my children.
Dr. Parker is amazing. Highly recommend her.

Dr Parker is very friendly, kind, and gentle. My toddler actually looks forward to seeing her at checkups.
Pravna Parker is a great physician.
I felt that the doctor was very nice and spent a lot of time with us, but I questioned her diagnosis and ultimately was right in being concerned. she said my daughter had HFM but her rash was all over her entire body and she had no fever. it turns out she was having an allergic reaction and Zyrtec cleared it up. she was allergic to the grass and/or straw covering our lawn at the new house.
We love Dr Parker! She always spends time with us, asking us questions and really takes time to listen.
we moved to Pittsburgh so we needed a new Pediatrician. we're thrilled to have found Dr Parker.

Dr. Parker performed a thorough exam for my son. She was engaging and conversed with my son. She celebrated his growth milestones by showing us his growth charts.
This was our first visit with Dr. Parker since Dr. Kovel left the practice. Our family was extremely pleased with our visit and can't wait to forge the same relationship we held with Dr. Kovel. Thank you so much Dr. Parker for stepping right in and continuing to take great care of our girl!

Dr. Parker (all the doctors we have seen) are wonderful. they've remembered my kiddo each time and have been patient and enthusiastic and helpful. They genuinely care and seem to love what they do and want the best for their patients.
Dr. Parker was great. It is the first time we have ever had her and I would definitely consider using her for regular care for my child. This was an earache appointment. My kids were so comfortable with her.

Dr. Parker is a phenomenal clinician and we are lucky to have her. She was kind, insightful, a pleasure to interact with and appears fully dedicated to both of my children's well being. She is a true gem.
Dr. Parker is outstanding. She treated our entire family with care and respect, listened to all of our questions and concerns, made sure that all of our quesitons were answered, and even provided additional information regarding potential future issues we had not thought to ask about. Dr. Parker clearly remembered our child and treated him as a valued patient. She treated our child with the utmost care and respect and based the entire visit around his needs. She was positive, caring, and thorough. I could not imagine a better experience with a care provider.
Great doctor. Very caring and knowledgeable.

Dr Parker is a great physician, corteous and very knowledgeable
We love Dr. Parker. She is always very thorough, realistic, and complimentary. She is also very sweet and easy to talk to.
The office was very busy and I was a little annoyed that we waited in the exam room for some time before the provider came in but her bedside manner and professionalism made me forget that I was ever annoyed. She was very much worth the wait. My son was very comfortable with her.
Very kind, patient doctor!
Dr. Parker showed care, concern, and critical thinking in my child's care. she spent a significant amount of time with us to ensure the best follow up plan, and called us later in the day for an update and confirmation of next steps.
I love how she bonds with my son and answers any questions I have
Interacts nicely with baby. Listens and answers all questions asked. Positive energy.
Dr. Parker was great. I liked that she had reviewed the information I had given earlier when I called and spoke with the nurse. Also I really really liked that she spoke directly to my daughter about how she was feeling. I only provided some additional information. Dr. Parker talked to my daughter in a way that a 9 year old would understand. I even had a follow-up question for Dr. Parker and she was still there to help. I would see her again if Dr. Voigt is out of the office. I love this office and am very happy that my children have them. I will be sad when they age out
Dr. Parker was just as good as my child's previous provided and that was really important to me.
I was pleasantly surprised by Dr. Parker. I'd never had her before so didn't know what to expect but really found her to be great and would probably ask to see her again.
Dr Parker takes the time to really talk with us about our daughters health and well being. I appreciate that I am listened to as a first time parent. She really listens to our questions and concerns and takes the time to answer.
Dr. Parker is extremely pleasant to work with. She is thorough, listenens with compassion, & treats with care.
Sapna is incredibly thoughtful and listens to the patient. I felt very welcomed.

Dr. Parker is encouraging, listens carefully, makes sure to answer all questions right away in the visit in easy-to-understand language, and is efficient in addressing all aspects of care within a short visit.
