Just a quick note to express my gratitude to Doctor Parke and all the support staff from the AZ Wellness Medicine practice. I feel very lucky to be working with you and have more hope today for a positive health outcome than in a very long time. I’m starting my protocol today and knowing the data/facts and having a plan to get better is really life changing. I appreciate your intelligence, communication, dedication to the functional methodology and overall great bedside manner. I really appreciate the support and can’t relay how happy I am to be working with you all. Thank you very much!
Once I had lost the weight, I was looking to improve my health naturally even more and one of my main goals was to correct my hypothyroidism naturally and figure out why I was having gastrointestinal issues. Within a couple of weeks of seeing you, I discovered I had Hashimoto’s and SIBO. I thought the gastrointestinal issues were related to food sensitivities so had been trying various elimination diets for over a year with no success. After my 2nd visit with you, you believed I had SIBO and a test confirmed your hunch. Most doctors would have told me I had IBS but you got to the root of the issue which is one of the main reasons I came to see you since you specialize in getting to the root of the problem and not just treating symptoms!
I Have Been Healed! I used to take 9 prescription pills every day and I am down to 1 1/2 and plan on taking nothing eventually. I have been praying for healing for 10 years and the good Lord lead me to Dr. Emily Parke, and Functional Medical Doctor, here in Scottsdale. I have come to find that I have food sensitivities and as particular foods were building up in my system, I would have more pain. After much testing, there are several foods that I cannot have in excess. I have found that these foods are okay to have occasionally, but not consistently. Once I realized which foods would be causing pain if built up in my system, I didn’t want to eat them. I also had some deficiencies in my intestines that were addressed and significant bloating has diminished. Dr. Parke is not only a wonderful doctor, but an amazing and loving, caring person. You will never regret scheduling an appointment with her. She takes a lot of time to learn your personal story and will stop at nothing to help you feel your personal best. Dr. Parke gets to the root of the problem and treats that rather than symptoms.
Dr. Parke and her team are awesome, she is helping me to figure out the source of many chronic health issues and I feel confident that we will get to the bottom of it. I highly recommend this practice!
My daughter had dark circles under her eyes and had multiple GI issues. Within 3 months of seeing Dr. Parke, she narrowed it down and treated the problem, not the symptoms. All of the other doctors we had seen just gave her “masking agents” and she still never felt 100%. My daughter is now the bright, happy, full of energy 12 year old that she should be!!
After 3 years of suffering poor health, I went to see Dr. Emily Parke. At the time, I felt as if I was being set upon by many illnesses which my internist simply couldn’t figure out.
I complained to Dr. Parke about the inability of obtaining proper restful sleep, psoriasis, repeated bladder infections, indigestion issues and what appeared to be thyroid issues. However, my blood work kept coming back negative for thyroid disease with my internist because he ran only 2 of the 4 blood tests necessary to determine thyroid disease.
The first thing Dr. Parke did was to run extensive blood work. The results showed that all of my symptoms came under Hashimoto’s (thyroid disease).
Systematically she started to heal my body through diet, nutrients, and additional suggestions on other modalities that improved and supported my good health.
After 6 months, I have made great inroads in reversing all of the symptoms caused by the Hashimoto’s condition. I attribute my success to correct and complete diagnosis made by Dr. Parke. In addition, Dr. Parke addressed the whole body and not just the symptoms. Lastly, she gave me a life structure to maintain my newly-acquired good health.
Dr. Parke is an excellent physician with a wealth of knowledge about pain and other chronic health conditions. She works with patients to help them take proactive steps to improve their health as naturally as possible, but has a background in traditional western medicine and clearly understands traditional diagnosis and treatment models. I came to Dr. Parke for acupuncture to my low back. It helped! I found Dr. Parke to be an excellent listener as she helped me sort through the various traditional and alternative options for treating my back pain. She is such a bright, competent and knowledgeable physician. She provides compassionate, patient centered care and really does go many extra miles to help her patients get better! The office is professionally run and things operate smoothly. You won’t be disappointed if you choose to work with Dr. Parke.
Dr. Emily Parke is the most talented physician I have ever known during my more than 80 years on this planet. She devotes her skills to customizing unique medical plans for each person, i.e. she treats individuals not averages. She begins by extensive testing and analysis to determine the root cause of your Medical Problem/s and then creates a treatment plan based on Natural Medicine when possible and the smallest does of Synthetic substances when necessary to give the desired result.
Dr. Parke is highly intelligent, has knowledge of all Medical specialties as well as an excellent understanding of Physiology and the Mind-Body Connection. She is friendly, compassionate and will spend as much time with each patient as necessary to develop a thorough understanding of their Physical and Psychological needs. She is the best listener I have encountered in the Medical Profession.
If you have a Medical problem that other professionals have been unable to treat or just want a highly skilled Doctor to keep you healthy, I recommend making an appointment with Dr. Parke. You will be glad you did.
