Biography of Bobbie Rene Parke
| "Rene, I wanted you to know about my latest PSA results. Long story short, my PSA had raised slowly from about 3.5 in 1994 to 27 in June of 2008. You started to treat me around early 2008. My last two PSA readings were 17.5 in January of 2009 and 12.8 in June of 2009. I find this impressive and am very happy!!!!!!!! From my Urology doctor I never knew my PSA could go down except by having my prostate removed. Thanks to you."

"Rene Parke has been the best thing that happened to me since I moved to Arizona six years ago. I was feeling very poorly and had seen multiple physicians before my first examination by Rene. Rene has been able to find what physicians had failed to do. The quality of my life has been enhanced because of my association with Parke Acupuncture. Rene treats everyone with compassion and love. She is such a concerned, caring individual who finds joy in helping her patients."

"With the help of Rene I have a better understanding of how my body works and how it relates to my soul being. From the minute I walked in and started talking to her, she knew more information about me than any of the medical test I waited months for. Her compassion and her love for what she does make her truly the great healer she is. She is, in my mind, what doctors use to be about before the insurance companies made them test readers instead of doctors."
