Review for Dr. Parag Parekh, MD

At first, I found his gung-ho "we can do anything you want" attitude off-putting and I was distrustful, but the surgery itself was completely smooth and painless, and the results have been marvelous. I strongly recommend him as a surgeon.

I had advance stage of Glaucoma with very high pressure. He did everything possible to get the pressure under control. That was 2 years ago. 2 months ago the pressure was 11 and 12 on both eyes. I also had cataract on one eye. I highly recommend him.

Review for Dr. Parag Parekh, MD

Awful. Wanted to do unnecessary procedures. Had to have my mothers copay in cash before he would even take the time to speak to her. Rude. Do not recommend. Money hungry.
