Dr. P knew what to do about my mom's emergency! He was so right about everything. He sent us to Grady because he was sure that something was wrong. She was admitted and many things were done...now, she's in recovery with a great future because Dr. P is awesome!

I took my parents to get surgery for cataracts and both of them were very happy. They shouldn't have waited so long but were worried about eye surgery. Now they are soooo happy! I'm taking my kids and husband to Dr. P next.

very nice place

The entire office was unprofessional, including Dr. Parikh. My preliminary paperwork was not reviewed by any staff member, most details had been incorrectly input in the computer, the staff was loudly gossiping about other patients within ear-shot of the waiting room, and I was incorrectly charged. Space for reviews is limited on this site, but I left a detailed review on Google.

So let me begin with saying that if this gets published then you know Health grades is a legitimate site. I came to this office from a referral for my grandparents. Not easy cases. Apparently this office is equipped to handle complex cases but that is a lie. The entire supporting staff have absolutely NO customer service. Doc tried to re do all scans (to charge more??) and falsely diagnose. Dont waste your time, Dr. Parikh hire actually qualified people.
The Dr was impatient, very late. Used medical terms and demanded quick answers. Appeared arrogant with poor bedside manner
in Snellville, GA |
My husband could not see even though other doctors said they could not help. Dr. Parikh took out cataract and now we are all very happy.

I had a very pleasant experience with...he was knowledgeable and very nice. The staff was diverse and courteous. And the insurance issues were explained at length to me about her insurance.
