Patient Comments (7)
in PATERSON, NJ |
Dr Parekh and Dr Brar have been my Dr's for many years and the office staff is very nice. In all the years I have been to the office, I did not know treating people with respect and dignity was not nice. To the Office staff keep up the good work and stay just how you are would not change anything.

Excellent doctor and surgeon
Edison, NJ |
In his Edison office, he has one employee with short brunette hair and blond highlights who has no patience and is very rude to the patients. She is also hostile towards her co-workers as well. Dr. Jai Parekh is a phenomenal doctor but her behavior is inappropriate for the workplace.
in Clifton,NJ |
I would like by starting off saying I will never go back to this office. First of all I waited 3 wks. for a appt., then you all packed in a waiting room like sardines, having your eyes dilated if front of everyone, then you go to inside hallway and wait some more, then when you finally get to see the doctor I swear he was in the room w/ me no more than 3 minutes, and did not listen to what I had to say. I request a re. for contacts, I came home w/ a rx. for glasses, even though I said to doctor
