Our Doctors Think Differently

Using an outcomes-driven approach, we focus on the root cause of disease to improve health and wellbeing while helping our members reduce their overall health care costs.

I've lived in NYC for years and have had the hardest time finding doctors who I can trust and are willing to look beyond the blood work. Parsley looks at the data but also listens to my symptoms, offers options, and keeps working until they've found a solution that works.

Doctors who listen and understand your needs.

I saw a couple different doctors, who gave me prednisone and cortisone cream, which both initially helped. But as soon as I stopped, my rash came back. And through the months, the rash got worse. My face was swollen and painful. I couldn’t get any relief. In addition to this, I felt both mentally and emotionally exhausted. I cried or got so upset so easily, which was not like me....”
