Dr. Parekh is awesome and well rounded in her knowledge and skills to treat and relate to the diversity of her patients. I always leave learning something new. The doctor that she's training (I forgot her name) is very professional and knowledgeable as well. I really like her because she is able to understand and provide solutions that address my conditions. She is very personable and thorough as well.

Dr Parekh always provides detailed explanations. Her medication plan for our son has been excellent. We have had great results. Our son has special needs and has some challenges with language but, when he got home from his last appointment, he said "I love going to the doctor". He only says that about Dr Parekh. She has been wonderful with him! We appreciate her expertise in dermatology and that she always provides the high quality patient care.

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.
