Kind words from patients, posted with permission, about Marcia Parris and her concierge care practice:

An extension of the exemplary service she was already providing.

I chose to subscribe to Dr. Parris’ concierge service because I considered it an extension of the exemplary service she was already providing. I have always appreciated the the time that Dr. Parris takes to explain her observations, make recommendations, and review the prescribed medications. Her patience and instruction were refreshing. I’ve never experienced that before with other practices, where I felt rushed and was hesitant to ask questions. So, with full understanding and appreciation for how valuable the doctors time is, I was very supportive of the shift to a concierge-based practice. I appreciate the extra care, accessibility, and dedicated attention to my personal healthcare needs.
