Who We Are
Our vision for Radiance is an environment where patients feel comfortable receiving the highest quality care while having a luxurious and personalized experience. Dr. Parker is known for her extended expertise, thoroughness, and highly praised patient care. Radiance strongly focuses on educating and explaining treatments to our patients and clients during their visits here. Our mission is to continue to provide our patients with the safest and most effective procedures and treatments by highly trained professionals. We firmly believe in enhancing your existing beauty and listening to your wants and needs. As medical aesthetic experts, we do not pressure or over-treat our patients and stand by honest and ethical patient care. We want you to feel confident and radiant from the inside out.
What Makes Our Medical Spa Different?
At Radiance we tell our patients we are not in the cosmetic industry, but rather the confidence industry. In today’s world, the medical spa culture can feel more like a sales business rather than a place of trusted care. We pride ourselves as a medical spa that will stay true to running as a medical practice where you are heard and treated based on your specific needs and goals, just as if you were going to see your family care clinic. Our foundation is based on educating and empowering our patients with every visit, blog post, email, and social post. The patient journey is very important to us, and we will always strive to provide a helpful and safe space where we can continue to grow and improve alongside you. We value collaboration over competition and patient care over profit.
Dr. Colleen Parker, MD graduated from the University of Utah School of Medicine in 2003 and completed her Anesthesia residency at University of Vermont, FAHC in 2007. She and her husband, a surgeon at UVM, have lived with their children in Vermont since 2004. Dr. Parker currently practices as a Board Certified Anesthesiologist. This makes her uniquely suited as a aesthetic physician who possesses not only the artistry necessary but also accurate anatomic understanding of the human face. After years of practicing cosmetic medicine, she is excited to open Radiance Medical Radiance where patients can begin and continue to receive the highest quality aesthetic care with a trained, experienced physician.
“While I love the challenge of anesthesia in the Operating Room, I missed the continuity of care in the clinical setting. Providing care and helping patients feel their best about themselves is fulfilling. Much of what I do is education about how to take care of your skin, not just to prevent, reduce and reverse the signs of aging, but also for the health and well being of the patient. There are things that we can do to get rid of lines, smooth wrinkles, fade age spots that are inexpensive and with little down time, that many patients are not aware of before coming into my office. They want to see in the mirror how they feel on the inside. I am able to help them with that. I live and work in Vermont for a reason, and I love what I do. I see my patients regularly, and my schedule allows me to really get to know them and thereby better understand their esthetic goals.“
