I was most pleased that I was seen ( finslly) & I could not ask for anyone more through & seemingly interestef in my concerns. I felt so comfortable with her...and that is not easily the case. The highest compliment I can give to any one & especially to a doctor is that I trust her and felt very comfortable. I sincerely hope that she continues to ne thst person. I say this only because I saw one of your women cardiologist & I liked her also but second visit & computer generated dialogue revealed a not so interested doctor.My judgement says this competent doctor is as wonderful as she appeared first visit.

Dr Parekh is an excellent dermatologist. She's a great listener, very caring, and super knowledgeable. She takes time to explain things in detail. We have been seeing her for years and her medical advice and treatments have made a huge difference for both my son and me. She's superb not only for adults but children as well. My son has specials needs and of all the physicians of different specialties that we have seen, she has truly been the best in terms of the way that she interacts with him. Also, I'm impressed that she's not only licensed/certified in dermatology but also in dermatopathology.
