About

Lindsey M. Parker works closely with Dr. Justin Fraser as a physician assistant in the cerebrovascular neurosurgery group here at UK HealthCare, helping with transitional and postoperative care, surgical preparations, and follow-ups. She assists Dr. Fraser with his clinics, where they address diagnoses such as aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, pituitary tumors and hydrocephalus. She also sees patients on her own, where she plays a role in postsurgical management and provides outpatient care and follow-ups in coordination with Dr. Fraser. She also acts as a point person with patients who have experienced traumatic brain injuries, seeing them after their initial injury and referring them on to specialist if needed.

Personal Statment

I have always been drawn to the medical field, even as a child. The field of neurosurgery in particular intrigues me. I love being able to sit with patients to discuss and explain their diagnosis and work with them to carry out a treatment/management plan. I make it a point to be easily accessible for our patients, since these diagnoses can raise many questions. I do my best to incorporate compassion, accuracy and timeliness into the care of my patients. I also apply the recommendations from patients’ other physicians and specialists when providing a team approach to their care.

    Dr Parker has been amazing and kinda restored my faith. I just get confused of what & which doctors I shld tell problems cuz all doctors are hard to get in with. And I always put things off cuz I think I think I have maybe imagined it in my mind due to anxiety but im actually never wrong. But I came there just for a shunt setting check after my MRI & I told her my ear had been draining fluid for a while & real bad when I sleep. I have never had a ear infection, I do not use q-tips, no pain nothing, just all day draining and I only have 1/2 hearing but she never looked in it or nothing but it was in my notes. But I told Dr Jani the same thing today and he had no problem looking in there & the first thing he said was how long? I have horrible short term memory but I said I know a couple weeks. He said no fever or anything? I said no just where I lay upward & use a neck pillow if my ear was down on my neck pillow I had no hearing even with my right ear being up.....Well he said it was filled with fluid & he wld contact my primary so something cld be called in to stop it before you can even see anything but he dont think it's cerebral fluid. I did not like the not having a definite ITS NOT! I Just wish she wld have looked cuz I much value her opinion & my anxiety can't handle the anticipation of waiting now.

      The PA didn't seem to really know my diagnosis. She was able to answer questions fairly adequately.

      First time I was told the actual reason for my condition. Always thought it was something less serious.
