I was directed to Dr. Parekh by my Orthopedic Surgeon. After several operations over the last 15 years. My pain was so severe I was limited to walking 10-15 yards before I had to stop and sit down. Dr. Parekh gave me a shot in my back after he located the potential problem. I'm going on three weeks and back to playing golf and walking without pain. I would certainly recommend Dr. Parekh. And by the way I already have.

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.

We had a very positive experience with Dr. Parekh and his staff. Dr. Parekh is an excellent physician. He is very polite and attentive. He shows a lot of concern for his patients and made us feel very comfortable .He was very patient with all of our questions and answered them honestly and explained the kyphoplasty procedure clearly. His assistants are also very caring, helpful, and patient. Overall, we are very satisfied with the excellent care we received from Dr. Parekh and his staff.

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.
