ON NOV 20, DR PAREKH WAS EXTREMELY HELPFUL while I was awaiting tests results of injected water pills. He explained in detail what I could expect although I was there under another MD,s request. His knowledge and positive attitude convinces me he is effective Del C Revels

I was suffering from a severe migraine and was desperate for relief. I called Dr. Parekh's office and I was seen the same day and fairly quickly even though they were busy. They have Saturday appointments one day per month which is great for people who work!

I have had several lumbar epidurals. In all of them I either never met the doctor or the doctor was 4 hours late for the procedure. My Nuero recommended I see Dr. Parekh and the appointment was made. He saw me quickly and explained everything to me. Epidural without medicating. He was very personable and established a good relationship with me. The 2 procedures were performed with no complications. He talked with me during the procedures. This was very comforting. Vert little pain experienced

After being in a lot of pain for almost two years, I had a radio frequency ablation procedure performed by Dr. Parekh. My pain went from a 10 to a 3. All the staff members were very professional and efficient, considerate of my time, and showed genuine concern for my back problem. I was unable to come in on a weekday because of my job, so they let me come in on a Saturday morning to have the procedure done. The entire staff has an outstanding work ethic.

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.

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.

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.

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
