I was a bit concerned when Dr. Parekh told me to carry on with my activities in light of the Covid situation. she explained that if it had never been discovered we would be none the wiser and the death toll wasn't much more than average. I was shocked by her statement and didn't know what to say. I work in the medical industry in research and feel that her message was irresponsible and dangerous. I would recommend the office in general but not sure I will be back to see Dr. Parekh. Honestly I am hoping I misunderstood her and she was trying to calm peoples fears and her message was off. However I didn't ask about Covid, nor express any concerns about the situation. She volunteered her opinion.

This was my first appt with Dr. Parekh, and I was impressed and thrilled. She is easy to talk with, "reads" a patient and situations immediately and is open to me participating in my care. I wasn't excited about getting set up with a new PCP for the second time within a year, but now am really looking forward to working with her!

Dr. Parekh has always seen me as a person, not a condition; I appreciate that. She's alert to my personal and family medical history of heart disease, and recommended I begin seeing a cardiologist.

This provider was almost an hour late to my appointment, which was already an inconvenient time and had made me late to work. This pro rider kept talking over me and did not explain any of the concerns I had. She also did not close the appointment with me, but instead had her nurse do it when I had additional questions.

She was very kind. She was the first PCP Dr. in the past 5 years that didn't make any pre judgements just by looking at me. She asked a lot questions about me and my medical history to understand me better. I felt very comfortable with her.
