John T. Parker is a board-certified otolaryngologist and believes in patient-centered care.
He is the first physician in the state of Washington trained to offer Inspire therapy, an innovative new therapy for patients with obstructive sleep apnea. The Inspire® upper airway stimulation system is a fully implantable nerve stimulator, which works to keep your airway from collapsing during sleep. Inspire is indicated for treatment of patients with moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea who are intolerant of CPAP therapy.
Dr. Parker practiced in Fort Collins, Colorado, before moving to Washington State. He volunteers with the Oregon and Western Washington Chapter of Healing the Children through mission trips to Guatemala, where he provides ear surgery and tonsillectomies to children in need.
