Hands down the greatest to ever do it! Dr. Parris is professional, extremely thorough, he listens and his end goal is to make his patients ME have a quality life as much as possible and I am thankful to have met him. I went through a lot of doctors no one could make a diagnosis but Dr. Parris stuck through this with me to help me get a clear understanding and diagnosis. He’s still passionate about the health of his patients and that’s a rare find. I will say bare with the office staff the original employees are great, but he has a lot of student staff and they are in training and lack experience. It can be challenging but I just speak to Dr. P or his wife and they make my feelings a priority.
I love the atmosphere here at Parris and associates. I have been coming here for 7 years Dr. Parris's staff always make you feel comfortable and welcome. Dr. Parris and his colleagues are very professional and take care of their patients. The patients care is their first priority. I love the way they treat me and take care of me. It's really a family practice and they make you feel at home here.
Love the atmosphere
Dr. Ban-is not only a good doctor, but, he is compassionate. I love him.
In August of 2022, I spent 3 nights in the hospital for Giant Cell Arthritis. After being discharged from the hospital, I started a treatment plan that was totally ineffective. After three months I was very discouraged and wondered if I could ever have a normal life again. I was then referred to Dr. Ban. On my first visit he was outstanding! He not only was well acquainted with my autoimmune condition, but knew exactly how to treat it. I have been under his care now nine months and have my life back. I have started living again. It is a wonderful feeling to have a person like Dr. Ban who is not only a true professional physician, but a true fantastic human being. I unconditional recommend him.
Dr Ahmed is absolutely the best!! Having PSA and possibly RA was very scary to me. He put my mind and spirit at ease, gave me hope. Thank you!
One of the best doctors I have ever been to. He is easy to talk to, and to understand. His ability to figure out medical issues is amazing and his concern for his patients unmatched.
I love DR Samakur. I've been seeing her since my diagnosis of RA back in 2013. I moved 7 years ago to Dallas Ga and I drive 47 miles one way to see her because she is the best!!
As a medical provider myself, I can recognize when another healthcare provider truly cares and is knowledgeable. I’m very thankful that he is the one treating my husband
Doctor Samakur is a wonderful caring doctor who listens to all my concerns. She never makes me feel silly for telling her my concerns. I wish all doctors were more like her.
I had a great experience at Parris and associates Roswell location. Staff very nice, smiling and helpful. Dr.Ahmed has always been on time. No long waiting. He is very thorough, explains all treatment plan very well. Spend good time answering all our questions. My mother suffers from joints pain for years and he is the only one who made her feels better.
Let me tell you this, if you need a Rheumatologist, Zohair Ahmed is your man. I have been seeing Rheumatologist for almost 30 years. Never have I found someone that listens, talks about multiple solutions, never looks at you like “whatever”. And this happens a lot. My last doctor I would wait ( and I’m not kidding) between 1.5 hours and 3 hours. Then the appt was so rushed I felt like I could barely talk. It was so frustrating. Dr Ahmed not only listens but has a depth of knowledge on many things you can try, and why. And sone of them are lifestyle ideas which is such a bonus. Just med after med gets so old. Both my 18 year old daughter and I see him and he is just as amazing with her. And he talks to her about her life so he knows how to help. All I can say is he is fabulous.and both their offices are wonderful.
I had my first visit today. I was worried whenever I read the reviews. However, I had a very great experience today. I met with Jennifer Young NP, who was personable and extremely knowledgeable. The diagnostic process and lab testing was smooth and easy. Everyone I interacted with was very kind. Looking forward to continuing to seek medical care with this provider.
I would like to thank Dr. Ahmed for treating me. I am now feeling like myself for the first time in months. My hands still hurt when I overdo it, but my body feels normal.
Thank you Dr. Ahmed
Excellent care. Dr. Ban is very attentive to your needs and care. Thank you.
5☆++ This was my first visit to the Roswell location since ownership changed. I hit the jackpot with Dr Ahmed. He puts you at ease right away. He takes the time to answer all your questions and concerns. He makes sure you understand your course of treatment going forward. He's very knowledgeable and detailed with the information he shares with you. I left this office smiling. And let's not forget the staff. They are so kind and considerate. I would recommend this location to everyone. You leave feeling so hopeful.
Hit the Jackpot!
I have seen Dr. Glenn Parris just once, but I can say with confidence that his caring manner and the ability to communicate with others effectively is a key ingredient in building relationships with people who are in need of his expertise.
Dr Samakur is a wonderful doctor. She has an amazing bedside manner and has really made all the difference on the treatment of my RA. This staff is truly a blessing!
Dr. Samakur is wonderful
I just started seeing him a few months ago and I am very impressed with the results. I actually look forward to seeing him each visit. Dr. Ban takes the worry out of your day. He is very detailed and explains your results to you. He will keep going based on your results to make sure everything is good and if not we make plans to get it taken care of. He shows a lot of care and concern and ask questions to make sure nothing is left on the table! Keep being an awesome doctor. Five stars in my book Dr. Ban!!!! (LaHoma). His staff is great as well.
Dr. Ban takes the worry out of your day
"Dr. Ban is the best. He gave me back my life."
I saw Dr. Parris since I was referred by my eye Dr. The visit was wonderful. Dr. Parris was so professional and very kind. I like his knowledge and his willingness to try to get to the bottom of trying to find out my problem. I may be too optimistic very early about getting a resolution very soon without having other side effects but we will see. The m.a, Page was also very good. She was on top of trying to get my labs out since it was after 5pm already but she had the ups guy wait until she finished. Love it. Thanks
Referred from eye doctor
I moved to Duluth, GA in Sep 2021 while experiencing significant swelling in my left knee. It had been previously treated by my previous doctor by draining fluid and steroid injections (8 months straight), but would always keep coming back causing pain and discomfort. My previous doctor did not offer any diagnosis after 2 years of being a patient, but within a few visits with Dr. Ban he was able to diagnose and begin treatment for seronegative spondyloarthropathy. In just 3 short months, Dr. Ban treated and removed the swelling from my knee, but also the joints in my hands and feet have not felt this good in years. I could not be happier with my experience to date - if you are in need a rheumatologist, you should absolutely get in touch with Dr. Ban!
Dr. Ban and seronegative spondyloarthropathy
I am so blessed to have found Dr. Byung. I have been fighting Sjogren Syndrome for over 15 years. I am 64. I have had more than my share of doctor visits in my life. I was more impressed with Dr. Byung than any other in my life! He entered the room with a big TRUE smile; Introduced himself, listened patiently to everything I said. He check and felt my hands, finger, and toes ever so carefully, asked a lot of questions, it felt like he has been my family doctor for years. I believe, the most important element of healing in a doctors visit is the comfortable feeling a patient receives and the psychological content in what the doctor is doing. Thank you Dr. Byung for all that you do and who you are. The prescription he gave showed positive effect for my "toes discoloring and pain" problem in 5 days. I just can not say enough about Dr. Byung. I can not wait to see him again. I truly believe, with the lords blessing and his treatment my daily health pains will get better.
Dr. Samakur is the most wonderful and amazing doctor! She works at Parris and Associates in Lawrenceville, Lilburn and Suwanee Georgia. All of the staff and professionals have a practice of helping me feel better. They all make me feel important and I start to feel better as soon as I walk in the door. I always receive excellent care and service. It never fails that I hear someone comment about how much better they feel as they leave. I wish I could leave a ten star rating, because I feel GREAT!!

She listens with a great deal of empathy and gets to the root of the problem. I highly respect and appreciate her professional services.
I have been to two other rheumatologists to treat my rheumatoid arthritis. But when I got to Dr. Paris and his staff he addressed that I also had psoriatic arthritis and he started treating me with an infusion that has made my labs so much better and has made me feel so much better. I would recommend Dr. Paris to anyone in the world. He truly listens to his patients along with Miss Young his physician assistant she truly listens to patients and they take action. I also love his infusion nurse Donna. She has made this transition from taking oral medication or injections every two weeks, amazing and I love seeing her smiling face and upbeat attitude every time I go in. Again...... She's pretty awesome!
I would recommend Dr. Paris to anyone in the world.
My experience with Dr. Parris has been excellent. I like the time he takes to explain what he is going to do and why. His associates from the front staff to the nurses and PAs are super. My mother has a bad case of arthritis and other health ailments and he is just as concerned about those ailments as he is in treating her for the condition she is coming to him about. I would highly recommend him to anyone with joint issues. He has excellent people skills and shows genuine feelings of caring, concern, and compassion. This is sometimes missing with doctors these days.
My experience with Dr. Parris has been excellent.
Fast service, amazing customer service,and doctor was super sweet and understanding
Doctor was super sweet and understanding
I don't get attached to many Drs. and it is hard to trust any anymore...she came into my life when I was down the most....she was very encouraging even though I was so scared...it took me some time but I have come to trust her extensive involvement not only physically but the mental and emotional motivation I have received for her...I went through six rheumatologists...before she came into my life..she has been an awesome influence and endless encouragement. I couldn't have asked for someone who cared for their patients any better than she has me. Thanks, Dr. Samakur! I really appreciate all you have done for me.
Dr. Samakur has been a wonderful addition to my medical team
Dr. Parris listened to all questions & concerns. I have NEVER had a physician spend much time with me. He was extremely thorough. His personality is the best!
My experience was as good as it gets!
He combined his vast knowledge and experience in Rheumatology with the highest level of attention and bedside manner to provide me with the best care possible. I hope you are fortunate enough to enjoy the same unparalleled experience as I did!
Dr. Parris is a true EXPERT of his craft.
I got answers on my first visit. He really cares about what is going on with you. He answers all your questions and takes his time. Thank you, Dr. Parris
BEST Rheumatologist in GA
She immediately recognized that I should seek out a Neurologist. Rather than view me as a number for the bean counters to count; she saw me as a person and a patient first.
Dr Samakur was amazing
