What meant the most to me were her attention skills. She looked at me with interest, she listened to me, she allowed time to for me to get my ideas across --- when she spoke, it was clear she understood me. She was kind and caring, with a great sense of humor. I didn't feel rushed or dismissed. When I left, I even felt motivated to be a proactive patient...how cool is that?

Marissa has been great to me and my kids. We had no regular Dr after Burrup retired. I tried to get another Kadlac Dr to take us but it was a six month wait. I tried Trios even though I didn't want to. I tried private practice too. No one had room for us. She took us once she knew we were displaced after following Burrup from private practice to Kadlac and then being left without a Dr. That right there speaks volumes about her dedication to patients and medicine. I believe she is practicing medicine for all the right reasons. She didn't have the receptionist turn us away. She recognized that we were without a Dr and that we were part of Kadlacs patients already and were not "New" as all the other Dr offices wanted to call us. She gave us access to health care without hesitation after more than a year of begging multiple Dr to offices to take us. She listens and provides quality care with a wonderful disposition and bed side manner. I am very grateful to have found her practice.

Dr. Parsons was friendly, knowledgeable and extremely competent. After reviewing the record notes and my past history, she asked relevant questions and performed a thorough exam. Though condition was due to virus, Dr. Parsons provided excellent treatment advice and Over the Counter products to lessen the severity. She appears to be very competent and approachable. I would recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone needing to see a professional care provider.

My experience with the care provider was great. The time it took to get a new patient appointment (even though I was not a new patient to the clinic - my previous care giver is no longer with the clinic which required I schedule a new patient appointment) was very disappointing. It took over 4 months to see the care provider. Way too long.
