  • Bio

    Dr. Jeremy obtained his bachelor’s degree from Wheaton College in Illinois, where he graduated summa cum laude with a degree in biology, and then went to Baylor College of Medicine for his medical degree. He completed an internship in general surgery at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston and a residency at the University of Kentucky in Lexington. He then went on to hone his craft with a fellowship in minimally invasive and bariatric surgery at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. It was here he discovered he had a passion for weight-loss surgery.

    “I realized what a potent and life-changing tool bariatric surgery can be for patients and that was that,” he said. Bariatric weight- loss procedures include gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy and can be the first step for weight-loss surgery.

    “I realized what a potent and life-changing tool bariatric surgery can be for patients and that was that,” he said. Bariatric weight- loss procedures include gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy and can be the first step for many patients to live a life free of obesity and obesity-related conditions. “It gives me joy to provide immediate solutions to my patients’ healthcare concerns,” he said. “I’m always proud to be able to see the results of my education and hard work and know it’s improving someone’s day-to-day life.”

    In addition to bariatric surgery, Dr. Parcells performs a wide range of procedures including hernia, gallbladder, anti-reflux, colorectal, bariatric surgery, and a full range of complex laparoscopic and robotic surgeries performed through a much smaller incision and resulting in shorter recovery times, less risk of infection, less scarring, and less pain for his patients.

    Dr. Parcells and his wife, Carolyn are raising two phenomenal boys in the South Arlington area. In their off time, they enjoy getting outside and going to Rangers games.
