Lakeland, FL |
Had a wonderful experience with Dr. Parekh and his staff. Very knowledgable, kind and efficient; gave me relief from neck pain that I've had for years! Office is clean and staff are friendly and professional. Would definitely recommend Dr. Parekh.
in Riverview, FL |
I highly recommend Dr. Parekh. He is very professional and have knowledge about pain management. The staff is polite and the visit to his office was pleasant.

Dr Parekh looked after me after I was injured in a car accident, he managed to get rid of the very debilitating pain in both my right arm and left leg. he managed all without surgery, explaining all the procedures in detail as worked in his own office area using the latest techniques and instruments. I can recommend him as he is a very conscientious and excellent Pain Specialist. I now have my life back thanks to him.

Dr. Parekh is caring, polite and fully explains everything that goes into procedures and your current state of health, which I've found others really don't do well in the area. Previously went to another doctor, whose staff couldn't schedule and appointment and eventually cancelled after six reschedules. I've never had a problem with an appointment with Dr. Parekh, whose his staff gets you in and out without wasting your time. They also call you following procedures to see how you're doing.

I am a patient of Dr. Parekhs', and as a physician myself whom has had a lumbar fusion in the past; continued to have spinal pain and referral down the legs. With Dr. Parekh's help we were able to reduce the referral, and almost eradicate the lower back pain. I can't began to tell you what a relief this is. I am very blessed to have his ability to help me in the present and future when needed. I would refer anyone whom needs spinal care, even if not to treat a second opinion is always good.
in Lutz, FL |
Fabulous experience. Really helped me in my time of need. He was very willing to spend time to understand my problem. I had a minimal wait in his office and now I am able to get back to my normal activities. Would highly recommend him to others.
Plant City, FL |
I did not check carefully when the office scheduled my next appointment and I found that I had 34 days between appointments / refills with only a 30 day supply of medication. This wasn't noticed until about 25 or 26 days into the 30 day prescription and I typically use all of the medication as prescribed each month. I experience a considerable amount of pain when not medicated and any attempt at rationing the remaining medication to last the extra 4 days would have led to extreme discomfort.
Tampa, FL |
I sought care from Dr. Parekh following an auto accident. Unlike other clinics, I was able to get an appointment immediately which I desperately needed. The clinic is very nicely decorated and clean with a coffee station for patients. The staff was very friendly and helpful. But the most important part was Dr. Parekh provided exceptional care that I needed for a severe injury. His clinic is equipped with the best technology. I needed an injection for my severe pain. He always made me feel relaxe

Dr. Parekh is a terrific Doctor. I used him a year and half ago for my right shoulder and his procedure went so well that I have not had any problems since. He is now treating my small of my back and he is just excellent and out standing. He gets you in ASAP. Scheduled for MRI and X-Ray and preformed the Cordizone Shot two days later. After two procedures I cannot speak highly enough of him.
in Tampa FL |
Horrible experience. I had a 10am appt. and had to wait 2 hours .
in Tampa, FL |
He takes the time to listen to the patient, really listen. He is compassionate and understanding and doesn't make you feel like he's rushing you. He is an excellent doctor. Would highly recommend.
