Dr. Parikh, J is an awesome doctor. I had so much anxiety (afraid to go through w/the surgery. I couldn’t have made it through my whole surgery process & recovery without his reassurance, confidence & dedication. He’s very proficient. He’s realistic. Not to mention his receptionist SONIA she’s very professional, warm & kindhearted. She’s very proficient as well. She does her job well. ?? ??????

I appreciate a surgeon who doesn't recommend surgery! My gall bladder may have an issue, but it's wasn't in range for an effective surgical option.

I highly recommend Dr. Parikh. His level of expertise, compassion, and care are excellent. I couldn’t ask for a better doctor during my illness. He made the process easier. From my initial hospital stay to surgery he explained everything and made sure every concern was addressed. I will forever be grateful for his care. He has a wonderful office and staff too.

I just had emergency gallbladder surgery with Dr. Parikh, and he was excellent! He explained what he would be doing, and even drew a sketch for me! He answered all of my questions after the surgery, and at my follow up visit, he answered and explained even more of what went on, and what I was to expect in the days and weeks ahead. I never felt rushed, or that I was asking too much. Fantastic surgeon and bedside manner!
