Dr. Jeffrey Parks, a board-certified family practice physician at SIH Logan Primary Care Herrin, will receive the Physician of Excellence Award from the Illinois Rural Health Association Oct. 30 during a ceremony at his practice. According to longtime colleague and friend, Kevin Oestmann, MD, the name of the award speaks for itself.
“Excellent” is just one word Oestmann uses to describe the man he has known for well over 30 years.
“As a colleague he’s top notch,” said Oestmann. “He is an excellent physician. He’s concerned about his patients; they are his number one priority.”

Dr. Oestmann said Dr. Parks has always wanted to be a part of anything that drives patient quality and care.
“He’s level-headed and easy to work with, always willing to listen to alternatives. I couldn’t think of anybody more qualified to be named Physician of Excellence.”
