"Synergy and Dr. Parks could be the best medical decision I have made. Dr. Parks is literally my medical quarterback. A unique combination of deep medical knowledge, empathy, common sense, and listening skills that are unmatched. Her attention to the smallest detail is refreshing and her holistic approach has really set me on the right path. She has assembled a first rate team and designed her facilities to insure that every patient/member is cared for appropriately."
"Today I had a 2 ½ hour physical, Dr. Parks gathered all the facts of my medical history and the medical history of my parents and siblings. The personal attention is dramatic compared to what we have come to expect from our current medical system. Dr. Parks is well connected with the best in Boston, and will be my guide with future medical issues we all know are coming. I am comfortable knowing I have someone to be my advocate in a hospital situation."
"I love the personalized service and attention - as much as we need.
I also appreciate the approach of treating the whole person, and in our case, the whole couple. This is not just a medical practice, but what I would call a "whole-life" practice - with excellent in medicine as a key element... along with fitness, nutrition and meditation..."
