Dr. Parekh is so caring and honestly does everything in her power to make sure you are taken care of. She takes enough time to go over all of my moles or any skin condition. always asks me if there are any concerns I am having. she is great about refilling my meds in a timely manner. She makes me feel comfortable. She has saved my life, finding a mole in 2011 that was melanoma. She is the best and I trust her completely.
