Dr. Parker is happy to work with your wellness care team to determine the root cause of illness, as well as its treatment. Primary care providers are focused on ruling out acute and progressive diseases, and are not geared towards qualify of life issues and preventive medicine. She is not a primary care doctor, and she views primary care as its own speciality. Like your primary care doctor, Dr. Parker runs most lab testing and imaging through insurance (except Medicare) as deemed appropriate. As an integrative medicine specialist, she is not a replacement for a primary care internist at a major hospital. She is similar to a primary care provider in that she may refer you to other specialists in order to more fully evaluate a particular condition she uncovers.
For those without a primary care provider, Dr. Parker may be willing help you find a local primary care doctor to help set you up with a health care team best suited to integrative medicine, and provide care in the interim. She may offer continuity of care refills for prescriptions ordered by your primary care doctor, with the exception of most controlled substances. Some medication refills require a physical exam and standard lab testing, and some merit referrals back to the original prescriber of the medication.

No. Each woman is distinctly different and her individual health goals and needs influence her care. Our approach is highly personalized based on individual goals and risk factors, and incorporates lifestyle wellness, exercise, nutrition, supplementation. Hormone therapies are not needed in many cases, and not all women are candidates for hormone replacement. Many of our patients use only natural remedies, diet and lifestyle to achieve their health transformations. Duration of treatment, budget, existing medications, family history, genomics and responses to previous therapies are always considered. Teens and women in their twenties often require simple adjustments in nutrition and digestion to help create hormonal balance. Depending on health goals and risk factors, women on hormone replacement may merit more extensive evaluations and more frequent appointments and screenings.

Blood tests and computerized cognitive testing serve as foundational assessments. When interpreted in the context of your health history as well as your present concerns and goals, these tests give us a better understanding of your present health. To support a truly integrative care model, we provide specialty referrals to sleep medicine, neurology, cardiology, gynecology and endocrinology if we suspect this is in the best interest of your health. Specialty referrals help Dr. Parker to further evaluate multi-factorial health issues and to ensure that the root cause(s) of health problems are discovered. 3D mammogram screening and breast & pelvic ultrasounds are ordered when appropriate. Brain MRI, brain PET scan, qEEG, bone mineral density, thyroid ultrasound, EKG, ECG, colonoscopy and coronary CT are other
commonly ordered tests when appropriate.
Testing requisitions are created after your initial intake, and because our testing menu is extensive, not all tests can be listed here.
You do not need a referral to see Dr. Parker.
