“Giving my patients the best care means really listening to them. I try to block out all other thoughts and distractions and listen to what they have to say. I like to develop personal relationships with each patient. I spend the time needed to understand their personal history and experiences, and hear their complete medical situation. When my patients have health issues, I try to present all of the available treatment options so that, together, we can make the best decision for their care.”

Raised in Auburn, Alabama, Dr. Parnell relocated to Mobile for medical school and fell in love with the area. She is an avid Auburn football fan and enjoys reading, time on the water, and travel. Dr. Parnell is married to Stuart and they recently welcomed a son, Jim.

    Dr. Parnell has been my doctor now for 5 years. Choosing your female doctor means more than just picking someone from the list. It’s about finding someone who understands you, cares for you, someone to give you the best advice and—most importantly—someone you trust. Dr. Parnell has delivered my two babies, and knowing that her hands will be the first ones that my babies feel means everything to me”

    Dr. Parnell embodies all the characteristics I look for when searching for a doctor. She is professional and knowledgeable, and I feel very much at ease asking her any questions that I may have. She and her team are also very personable, and they take the time to get to know you as a person as well as to know your needs as a patient.”
