In the past, she has cancelled appointments at the last minute to go to California. Some of the remarks she makes are not necessary. Sometimes she makes me feel like she doesn't want to be there at the appointment. She seems to refuse to contact my Neurologist that is located at another hospital. Previous Rheumatologist had no problems with contacting Neurologist about treatment and care plan, but she definitely has a problem with doing this. I have definitely considered requesting a new Rheumatologist doctor.

Dr Parekh was nice enough, but I feel like she has trouble looking outside the box. if it's not a textbook scenario that she learned about in medical school, then it's not possible. Not all patients have health issues inside the box, but their concerns should not be dismissed or downplayed as "impossible"

every office visit with this makes me extremely anxious. the provider did not asses the joint bothered and made me feel bad for feeling bad, did not address my intense pain. I will be looking for a new provider. I should not have to function with this amount of pain and no relief
