Dr. Parrish is board certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology in both obstetrics and gynecology and maternal-fetal medicine. He has lectured on a variety of maternal-fetal disorders that plague pregnant women, in addition to presenting research at multiple local and national organizational sponsored events. He has published multiple papers in peer reviewed journals with much of his research focused on preeclampsia and other hypertensive disorders of pregnancy. Additionally, he has written several chapters focusing on the management of sickle cell disease in pregnant women.
Dr. Parrish is interested in many aspects of perinatology, but he hopes to continue to emphasize the importance of the maternal aspect of the maternal-fetal medicine subspecialty. By focusing on quality improvement initiatives he hopes to identify and address gaps in the current medical system that will help improve overall outcomes for high-risk, pregnant patients and their newborns. Dr. Parrish will capitalize on the resources that the University of Kansas Medical Center offers to provide exemplary patient care in addition to advancing our understanding of disease processes that complicate pregnancies.
