I view each person as an individual with unique medical and personal needs. Through attentive listening, I partner with my patient to develop optimal healthcare goals that align with their specific needs and lifestyle.

"Excellent staff very prompt, helpful and friendly. Shannon Parks is the best primary physician I have had. She is top notch."

"Saw Shannon for the first time today.. but from the receptionist to the tech to Shannon they were all great.. they each took plenty of time with me.. Shannon especially.. it means so much when you're given time to tell your story and health history and they're actually listening and giving feedback not just glued to the computer.. Thanks Kelly for the recommendation!!"
