Dr. Colleen Parker, MD graduated from the University of Utah School of Medicine in 2003 and completed her Anesthesia residency at University of Vermont, FAHC in 2007. She and her husband, a surgeon at UVM, have lived with their children in Vermont since 2004. Dr. Parker currently practices as a Board Certified Anesthesiologist. This makes her uniquely suited as a cosmetic physician who possesses not only the artistry necessary but also accurate anatomic understanding of the human face. After years of practicing cosmetic medicine, she is excited to open Radiance Medical Spa where patients can begin and continue to receive the highest quality aesthetic care with a trained experienced physician.
“While I love the challenge of anesthesia in the Operating Room, I missed the continuity of care in the clinical setting. Providing care and helping patients feel their best about themselves is fulfilling. Much of what I do is education about how to take care of your skin, not just to prevent, reduce and reverse the signs of aging, but also for the health and well being of the patient. There are things that we can do to get rid of lines, smooth wrinkles, fade age spots that are inexpensive and with little down time, that many patients are not aware of before coming into my office. They want to see in the mirror how they feel on the inside. I am able to help them with that. I live and work in Vermont for a reason, and I love what I do. I see my patients regularly, and my schedule allows me to really get to know them and thereby better understand their esthetic goals.“
