Thomas Parrish, MD, always wanted to practice family medicine, and enjoys being a provider who can treat the needs of an entire family. He is especially focused on helping patients toward a healthy lifestyle so they can avoid or minimize medication. When medication is warranted, Dr. Parrish seeks out medicine with strong scientific support for the best long-term outcomes. When he's not seeing patients, Dr. Parrish enjoys running, travel and photography. But his faith and his family – which includes his wife, three children and grandchildren – remain his first focus.
