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.

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.

She listened to me and addressed every question and concern. She didn't rush, spoke slowly and clearly, and made sure I understood her diagnosis and recommendations. She help me understand better and more completely than the rheumatologist before her. I'm so appreciative for her expertise, her time, and her help. Such a fine, fine doctor.

This doctor was the one that got down to my issue from day 1. This doctor listened to me and didn't do anything that myou think that my primary care physician should have done themselves. Doctor Maxwell is my doctor and did absolutely nothing with my concerns however when II went to this doctor, This specialist who I know is extremely busy, she listened to absolutely everything I had to say. God-bless her, Because if she was not concerned about my issues and concerned about what I was concerned about I don't think we would have ever found out what was my problem. I am in the process of getting my primary care changed buthey are changed but I definitely want to make sure that I continue to see the specialist because this person really showed me that there are great doctors out there.

Doctor Parekh, is a very knowledgeable Doctor. I appreciate the way she goes over all of my blood work and explains what is going on., and tells me the best plan of action to treat me. She allows me to be apart of the decision. She looks at all my health history and X-rays and offers me the very best treatment. I appreciate the excellent care she gives me.

I am confident in Dr Parekh's ability to treat my RA. We don't always agree on the meds I need to take as I want to take very little but she is understanding. I continue to be concerned with the hours she works, especially with responding to communications. I received an email from her at midnight, never does she respond during business hours. If she gets burned out and leaves , BSW will have lost a good one.
