    When my baby girl was born we were told she needed to see a specialist for hip dysplasia. I was so scared because I didnt know what it was and she was so small. But I went to the appointment and Cheryl Parker put mi at so much ease. They showed me very well how to put the harness and how to care for my child while in the harness. She even helped when the dysplasia got worse instead of better and didnt judge me for the error. I greatly appreciate everything she has done for our family and recommend her to anyone who may need an orthopedic specialist

    When we were referred to Cheryl Parker after our son broke his humerus and not knowing whether or not he would need surgery, we were a little concerned that we would be seeing a PA and not the Orthopedic Dr. From the minute Cheryl walked into the exam room we knew we were in good hands. Not only was she absolutely wonderful with our son, she took the time to fully explain his injury and the treatment that would follow. At no point during our initial visit, or subsequent visits, has she ever made us feel like we were just another "number" in her busy day. I cannot say enough about Cheryl Parker and would highly recommend her!

    When we lived in WA my daughter was diagnosed with scoliosis. We started going to Children's in Everett and saw Cheryl. She was always so friendly and upbeat and answered all of our many questions. We were sad when we moved out of the area. Thank you Cheryl for helping us!
