Gregory D. Parkhurst, MD, FACS, founder of San Antonio, Texas-based Parkhurst NuVision, has been honored with the On-Time Doctor Award of 2021 from Vitals. The award, which is determined by patients, recognizes medical services providers with the shortest wait times.
Vitals, a healthcare database company, gathers upwards of 6 million reviews from patients annually to compile Patients’ Choice winners. The company narrows the field of award candidates, using proprietary algorithms to identify the top 5 percent of physicians for the honors.
Patients’ Choice Award winners possess multiple years more experience than their peers, along with reduced wait times. And of these exceptionally short waits, Parkhurst NuVision’s streamlined operations take top honors.
“The entire staff at Parkhurst NuVision is beyond amazing. We experienced little to no wait time during our LASIK procedure. The team made us feel very important despite how busy they were. We in no way felt rushed, rather attended to as they provided a private room for us to rest for a few hours after the procedure. The team even provided the post-op appointment a few hours after the procedure (2 hours after the procedure my significant other had 20/20 vision). I would HIGHLY recommend this place of business!”

Dr. Parkhurst said his own experience with poor vision has helped him relate to his patients on a meaningful level, informing the way he runs his practice. An embarrassing (and expensive) mishap ruined a day on the lake and shaped his life.
“I was so excited for my turn to waterski that I dove right into the water without taking off my glasses. I watched them sink right to the bottom,” he said. “For a junior high school kid, that’s humiliating! I got vision correction as soon as I was old enough, and now I enjoy helping thousands of patients make that life-changing leap through my own LASIK surgery center.”
“Parkhurst NuVision has the most amazing staff and qualified doctors. From the moment you step foot in the door, you are made to feel welcomed and comfortable. The staff is very diligent and effective. I loved the fact that I didn’t have to wait long at all to be seen. … The procedure itself was very quick and Dr. Parkhurst talks you through it the entire time.”
