Dr. Parsons is exceptional. He goes above and beyond. He is the Pediatrician for all 3 of our children and has called us in the evening, weekends, and many years ago when our daughter was hospitalized right before XMas with a rare reaction. he worked tirelessly with other doctors across the Country to figure out what it was. He takes his time, connects, and deeply cares.

Dr. Parsons is the best pediatrician I’ve ever met! I have 2 boys ages 2 & 1 with asthma and he always squeezes us in for an appt even if he needs to come in early or stay late! He will answer his phone at 8pm or call me back on weekends, after hours, or while he is on vacation with his family! He truly cares about all of his patients although i like to think we’re some of his favorites hahaha! He is very patient answers every question even if it's dumb, explains things thoroughly , and is playful with my children! He always wears a fun tie which is an added bonus! We truly love Dr. Parsons and i wouldn’t trust anyone else with my children! He is the absolute best!!

Dr. Parsons was like a godsend when my wife and I were new parents, 9 years ago. He took his time to answer our many, many questions and concerns and always put our minds at ease. In the 9 years we have been seeing Parsons, we have never been to an appointment where we felt rushed or pressured! He genuinely cares about your children. He is amazing!

Dr Parsons is absolutely amazing! He's kept me calm and assured when my son was sick. He has a great friendly personality, both joking with myself and my husband as well as keeping my son entertained during appointments.

Although it seems we have to wait longer then normal every visit, it is totally worth it to see Dr Parsons. He is awesome with all 3 of my girls. He takes the time to listen to your concerns and explains everything in detail. He speaks directly to the girls (7yrs and twin 2 1/2 year olds). Letting them tell him what is wrong or how they are feeling. He is very patient with each of them and with me and my silly questions. No question is to silly or crazy to ask. He is just great!

Dr. Parsons is simply amazing! Our first experience was in the hospital after our daughter was born, and he was a fantastic resource to us, and he was amazing at also helping with breastfeeding concerns, etc. Now our daughter is 4 years old, and she loves going to see Dr. Parsons, and can pick out his blue building from the road every time we pass it. The reception team and nurses are all fantastic as well, but Dr. Parsons has the best bed side manner that I've ever seen in a doctor, exactly what you would want as new parent, or in general for your child. He's patient, caring, and incredibly knowledgeable in so many areas. A fantastic resource for parents!

Dr. Parsons has met and exceeded every single one of our expectations since we have brought our 2 children to him. He is attentive and knowledgeable about everything we have gone to him for. Whether it requires looking further into, requires more testing or follow up visits with other specialists, Dr. Parsons has always answered every question we have had quickly and completely. While seeing or speaking with him you have his undivided attention and as much time as necessary. No appointment is every rushed or hurried.

I can't say enough good things about our son Kyle's pediatrician, William Parsons. Dr. Parsons has been our pediatrician since Kyle's birth. Dr. Parsons has not only treated our son for a variety of medical issues, he has also guided us down the right path the entire time. Dr. Parsons takes plenty of time to answer our questions and help us understand why Kyle gets sick. He speaks to us in a very caring way. We know that he cares about Kyle and doesn't rush us out of a visit. This Dr. is highly recommended by us. He is an asset to the staff at CareMount. Our son is on the autism spectrum and Dr. Parsons is so great in how he handles him. A true professional.

Dr. Parsons goes above and beyond for not just his patients but their families as well. He takes his time with each family to make sure all questions are addressed and he never makes you feel rushed. When my son is anxious about being there he gives him his personal stethoscope to play with as a distraction with no worries that he could break it. Dr. Parsons never makes you feel silly for any question you have and trust me I am always calling there to ask him something.
