Dr. Parrish is improving the lives of patients, which goes far beyond the surgical suite. “A big part of being an orthopedic surgeon is not just surgery, it’s following the patient. Your care has to match their personality and their situation at home.”

Treating patients of all ages at two convenient locations helps Dr. Parrish understand what quality healthcare can mean to a small community. He also spends most of his fall weekends under the Friday night lights. “I am the team doctor on the sidelines for the football team in Jacksonville, and I travel with them to away games.”

Dr. Parrish offers sophisticated computer navigation to aid in knee-replacement procedures along with a number of other orthopedic services to help rejuvenate the lives of the people he treats. “The goal is to create an end result that can change a patient’s life for the better.”

Dr. Parrish earned his bachelor’s degree in biology from Stephen F. Austin University in Nacogdoches and his doctorate of medicine from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas.

Dr. Parrish is employed as a clinical faculty physician at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Tyler under the UT Tyler School of Medicine.

Excellent care, professionally delivered!

When my son broke his wrist during his football game we were seen my Dr. Parrish there on the sidelines and later met him at UT Health in Jacksonville where my son would have to undergo surgery. From the moment we met him he was very professional and explained in detail every step we would be taking from surgery, to recovery. We have been back for office visits and he and his staff are wonderful.

My husband had a broken leg due to a car accident. Quick back story. He suffers from diabetes and has a long history of problems with his leg which made surgery risky. He had not one, but 2 surgeries on his ankle and leg. Both extremely successful, which was a blessing after hearing that he could possibly lose his leg! Dr. Parrish and his team are amazing! We were all greeted with smiles and everyone was optimistic...genuinely concerned on his well-being as well as mine! You should've seen everyone's excitement with every milestone my husband cleared! They listened to our concerns, they were attentive and precise, excellent bedside manner...all around awesome! I highly recommend them!!! As long as I am in east texas, they are my go-to for orthopedic care!

Had a great experience when my son broke his arm playing football.  Dr Parrish did his surgery on a Saturday evening.   Office staff was excellent.
