Press Ganey Survey Comments From Patients
I’ve seen Dr. Parker before & in each case, he’s been very thorough & concerned.
I have always preferred to come to The Corvallis Clinic Immediate Care, especially if Dr. Parker is available. He always explains everything very well and makes sure you know how to take care of whatever ails you.
Really pleased with this interaction, never felt talked down to.
Friendly, thorough, asked many questions.
Dr. Parker has a warm professional personality.
This was a visit to immediate care for a bad cold. Not my regular doctor. This doctor was very pleasant and gave me good advice.
Excellent in every way
Perhaps I was just lucky, but the care was quick personal & professional.
Dr Parker was highly conscientious & helpful. Thank you.
Dr. Parker was excellent. If he took regular patients my husband & I would change.
Charles S. Parker, MD was excellent.
Dr. Parker provided great care, made the right diagnosis, gave the proper treatment and I got better within a week. What else can I ask for? Great job, thanks to Dr. Parker & Corvallis Clinic
Dr. Parker was excellent in the way he diagnosed my problem. Wonderful manner!
I walked in to the Immediate Care Clinic not knowing what to expect, but I knew I needed to be helped. I was very impressed with the check in, the nurse, and the doctor. Wait time was minimal, and all were helpful and caring.
Every time I have seen this doctor, he has been amazing at making sure I understand the why’s and how’s of my conditions. And he has explained the best treatments and why.
Dr. Parker was very attentive and seemed to care about my problem that brought me there
He is excellent. I wish he was still practicing as a regular full-time physician. I would certainly be his patient if he were.
Excellent service from reception to Dr. Parker, and all tech specialists. Very kind, as well.
I had been ill for weeks and Dr. Parker was kind, thorough, explained tests he wanted to run and why. (Did I mention how pleasant and kind he is?) Considering how bad I felt when I went in, I came out feeling like everyone I had seen was concerned about finding out what was wrong. That means a lot.
Very positive experiences with each person who helped me. Dr. Parker called me as soon as he received the test results, less than an hour after I got home. Encouraged me to call if I had questions or if something changed with my condition.
Very thorough, very explanatory. Recommended the right prescription, symptoms and recovery went smoothly. Provider accelerated by recovery by knowing and explaining the treatment.
