Our Patients’ Words: How Our Doctors Changed Their Lives

“Doctor William Parker is my cancer doctor for my prostate. I did a nation wide search. Little did I know across town was KU CANCER CENTER. Through my primary was assigned a nurse navigated to Doctor Parker. From the onset Doctor Parker gave me the facts, the details and answered all my questions, and did so with compassion, respect, and truly cared. If your reading this you to probably have prostrate issues. Personally, I elected Robotic surgery. Everything Doctor Parker said he would do he did. “Billy Parker” is a Georgia boy, smart as a whip, and has the hands of a surgeon (they don’t shake) he looks you in the eye, and actually “Cares”. Doctor parker has a support staff that is beyond perfect. I applaud Doctor Parker, and staff they saved my life.” – C.E.

“Dr. Kowalik is an amazing physician and surgeon!!! I had a great evaluation prior to surgery, she explained my treatment options, surgery and recovery in great detail. She did an excellent job on my surgery which has been life changing!!! My care at the University of Kansas Health System was also excellent following my surgery! I give Dr. Kowalik my highest recommendation and encourage women with pelvic floor issues to seek her help.” – Jenny Cho
