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

My comments, questions, notes, and concerns were either ignored or trivialized by the doctor. Her personal interaction is poor. Not only was she off-putting during the appointment, but she told us that the two tests she wanted to do would show that I definitely do not have lupus if they came back negative (which she was certain was the case) yet when they came back positive (which she released via portal) no one called me to go over those results with me. The doctor had a two month follow up scheduled for me, however I will not wait that long for an explanation of test results. My hope is that I will be able to be seen by a different provider in the future.

This provider disregarded lab results that I handed them myself. The provider said I didn't have certain labs done and I had to point them out to the provider on the lab results I handed her. The provider would not answer a question straight on. This provider mainly talked about how I need to do everything through S&W instead of the subject at hand. She bluntly said that the ER staff did not test for strep or any other infection. I then had to point out that they did in fact look for other infection from my mychart. She blames most things on financial issues.

She spent a lot of time with me; I believe a good hour. She asked so many questions; more than I have ever had in all my years with a doctor. She is definitely thorough! You need to keep her and give her a raise. She deserves it. She has a mass of knowledge that she has acquired in such a short period of time.

Dr. Parekh was very kind and listened to my concerns. She is compassionate and took time with me and was very thorough in her exam. I emailed her the next day with additional information and she responded. I am very grateful that my appointment was with her and I will recommend her to anyone in need of evaluation/treatment by a Rheumatologist. On a 0-10 scale, my experience was sincerely a 10. Thank you.
