Dr. Parikh has been my dr. for many years. He is the "best." I'm thankful for him. He listens - he cares.

December 25, 2018 6:00 PM

This doctor is abrupt and short with patients. He did not disclose all significant side effects of proposed medicine. He ordered medicine for me & didn't talk to me about it! His staff is rude, condescending and unhelpful. The phone usually rings 6-7 times & then goes to voice mail. I don't trust that the doctor or staff has my best interest at heart.

Although Dr. Parikh has a busy schedule, he is relaxed and takes the time to answer all my questions. He is concerned about my general health as well as my heart and blood pressure status. He provides a genuine caring which is comforting.
