Dr. Julie Parekh was interested in my condition and responsive. She prescribed noting that I had glaucoma which precluded her prescribing one medication. My dizziness led her to insist on not allowing me to drive myself home and contacting my family to pick me up.

Dr. Parekh goes above and beyond to care for me as a patient. I appreciate how she listens to my cares and concerns and involves me in my treatment plan and care. She always gets my test results back in a timely manner, adds a short summary letter to my health care app, and even takes time out of her busy schedule to call me and touch base about everything. You don't get that kind of care and service from every provider nowadays , and I have been a loyal patient of hers for over 10 years now because of that. I would highly recommend her to my family and friends and, she exhibits the level of care that gives Baylor an excellent reputation.
