Insurance listings are subject to change without prior notice. Please call your physician's office or your health or insurance plan to verify coverage information prior to scheduling your visit or procedure. Not all members participating in contracted networks have "in network" access. In network participation may change from time to time without prior notice. Independent providers (which could include, for example only, anesthesiologists, radiologists, pathologists, emergency medicine physicians, advance practice professionals, and other independent providers of health care services) may deliver part of your care, and such providers may be considered out-of-network on your health and insurance plans even if the Facility may be considered in network. If you desire additional information as to the providers who may be involved in providing your care, you can either ask your treating provider (who may know some of the specialists or groups who could be involved) or you can request a list of Facility-based physician groups by calling the following toll free number: (877) 810-0372. This list is updated annually and is subject to change without prior notice.

This was my 2nd visit with Dr. Parekh. The response time on my lab results and a few questions I have asked over the past year have been super fast which is appreciated. She also helped me better prioritize the 2 medical issues I have dealt with which no one has done in the past. I am more confident in getting treatment now. Thanks!

I was glad to be able to see her again for an annual exam and update her on my concerns in addition to testing for a pre-op for surgery. I'm glad I switched to her as my PCP and internist.

I resisted going to the ER so the doctor saw me in her office first and she was right, I needed to be admitted. It was an emergent situation and I feel like she saved my life. My hemoglobin was 6 when I got to her office. She was patient, kind and understanding. My care here at BS&W has been nothing less than exemplary
