A Message From Dr. Parker

I had the privilege of receiving my post-medical school training at New York University Medical Center. During my three years of plastic surgery residency and fellowship, I was fortunate to have been taught cosmetic surgery by acknowledged masters in the field.

Rather than set up a New York City practice as many of my colleagues did, my family and I chose to move to Bergen County and bring my “Park Avenue Expertise” here.

Whatever your situation, whatever you are hoping for, you can expect my undivided attention. Together, my extraordinary team and I will develop a treatment plan tailored for you alone.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your goals. Please call my office for a consultation.
