My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As an Ascension Medical Group doctor, I provide compassionate, personalized care. I strongly believe in treating each patient in a very individualized manner. This can only be done by being truly interested in spending the time required to better understand the factors that play a part in your health. Sometimes, these factors are straightforward, other times, complex. But at all times, I will listen to you! You know your body – your symptoms, your response to past treatment and your concerns. My passion as a primary care physician is to gather that information from you and meld it with the data from your physical examination and test results to help determine your diagnosis and plan. 
 
That takes time. It takes time to collect information and review it. It takes time to process this information, especially when considering the many possible causes of a patient's symptoms. And in many cases, it takes time to research the possible etiologies of your symptoms. I have spent many hours and many nights working to figure out what has been causing someone’s symptoms; I am tenacious to that end. I was drawn to internal medicine by this problem-solving aspect. Your case may be easy to treat, or it may be a challenge to diagnose. In either case, I will do my best to help prevent, manage or treat your medical condition. The turnstile, high-volume, speed-walking care is not beneficial to the patient or physician. These have their place in medicine, but they are not my way. 

Prevention of chronic medical issues is essential for a healthy life. The MDVIP Wellness Program offered in my personalized healthcare practice provides a deeper look into your overall health. It is a comprehensive, proactive approach to help prevent chronic medical illness, via provision of a tailored wellness plan especially for you!
 
I pledge that my provision of care will include the compassion, professionalism, knowledge, work ethic, confidence, humility and passion that you expect and deserve. I went to medical school after a stint as an Air Force Officer. My duty to God, family and country are manifest in my dedication to this calling as a physician. Let’s work together to keep you healthy. It may not always be an easy road, but I will try to find the best possible route for you, explain the twists and turns and guide you along the way. 
 
I am affiliated with Ascension Sacred Heart Emerald Coast.

from John in FL March 9, 2024 for Michelle Parker, MD

When I started with Dr Parker my health statistics were not very good. I was overweight, cholesterol sky high as well my other number. Over the year long partnership with Dr Parker I halved most of my numbers, lost 20 lbs, and addressing several physical issues. Her care and concern has made all the difference to me.

I absolutely love Doctor Michelle Parker as my primary care doctor. Doctor Parker is the very best doctor that I have ever had in my short 78 years of needing medical assistance.

That is why Doctor Parker is the all-time Top Gun of… See more

from Linda in FL February 10, 2024 for Michelle Parker, MD

I met Dr. Parker in 2018 a couple of months after my husband’s death. His death marked a 12 year battle with Alzheimer’s Disease and I was his caregiver. The whole time was a nightmare. I watched the man I loved and was married to for 55 years just slip away in a downward spiral to some inward place where he no longer knew me or anyone else for that matter. During that 12 year period I… See more
