About D. Gene Parks, MD

Certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology, D. Gene Parks, MD, and his former partner were the first two board-certified OB-GYNs in Marina Del Rey when they started Marina Women’s Medical Group. After over 20 years, Dr. Parks and his new associate are again the first two board-certified OB-GYNs in their city, but this time in Playa Vista.   

An avid researcher, as an OB resident, Dr. Parks published the landmark article “Macrosomia: A Proposed Indication for Primary Cesarean Delivery.” Since publishing that article, macrosomia is now accepted as a valid reason to perform a cesarean section to prevent birth injury. Dr. Parks has also published his research on the nontraditional treatment of genital herpes and menopausal hot flashes. He authored the chapter on genital herpes in the textbook “Current Clinical Practice: Sexually Transmitted Diseases.”   

Dr. Parks enjoys doing research. He has published numerous articles regarding vulvar lichen sclerosis, HPV infections, gonorrhea, vaginal yeast infections, endometriosis, choriocarcinoma, and water intoxication. He is proud of his proposal to increase the number of unwanted newborns safely surrendered to reduce the death rate of abandoned newborns to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.   

Dr. Parks has received several Excellence in Teaching awards from the departments of OB-GYN at both UCLA Westwood and UCLA Harbor General. He has served as a volunteer Medical Director at Westside Family Health Center in Santa Monica, and the clinic has honored him with the D. Gene Parks Community Service Award. This award is given annually to individuals or groups recognized for their community service. He has also received a commendation from the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, California State Senate, and California State Assembly for his community service to Los Angeles County women.  

Dr. Parks earned his medical degree from the University of Oklahoma and then completed his residency at the San Bernardino County Medical Center in San Bernardino, California. He completed his residency at the Kaiser Foundation Hospitals in California.
