First Physicians has an internal medicine department headed by Darrell Parsons, MD, ABIM. We provide convenient and timely access to care, and Dr. Parsons focuses on involving patients in their own health and lifestyle decisions for optimal outcomes.
Dr. Parsons and the rest of the staff at First Physicians can help you prevent, diagnose, and treat diseases such as diabetes, hypertension (high blood pressure), heart disease, hyperlipidemia (high fat content in the blood, including cholesterol), thyroid disorders, rheumatoid arthritis, and many others. Our goal is to help you achieve and maintain the best possible health.
Get Involved in Your Health
First Physicians wants to involve our patients as much as possible in the health care process. This includes prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.
It is very important for you to communicate openly and honestly with us. We use the symptoms you report to us to diagnose some of these diseases, so it’s always a good idea to let us know if something is bothering you, no matter how minor it may seem. It’s also a necessity to have any bloodwork we send you for done as soon as possible. The numbers from these tests are the only tool we have to diagnose disease in some cases. This is one of the many reasons we encourage our patients to become involved in their health care decisions.
