Dr. Paracha, performed an appendectomy on my wife a few weeks ago. He was assigned to us at Mather hospital. From the very beginning of the experience he took the time to answer all of our questions, explain the procedure in detail, and make any complications crystal-clear so that we could make an informed decision. The surgery went well and once again he did an exemplary job explaining all of the details to me after the surgery and helping me to set up next steps. His office staff was courteous and efficient at helping us obtain the paperwork we needed. Follow up visits went very well with a very short wait time in the office and another detailed examination. His bedside manner and personality put us at ease throughout the entire ordeal. We would definitely recommend him to anyone having a similar type of surgery.

He recently performed laparoscopic appendicitis surgery for me. Almost 2 weeks now. I absolutely had no problems post surgery. The surgery went smooth, he spoke to me before surgery and that gave me confidence that I am in right hands. Post surgery i requested for a letter for my crossfit to freeze my account as no strenuous workout for 10 weeks. Within few hours his office sent it on my mail. His office also seems very proactive. Overall an excellent experience.

I had five surgeries with Dr. Paracha, so I feel confident in reviewing him! ?? So, what can I say? He’s great! I have had no issues or problems after his surgeries, he was more than able to handle any trouble I had healing with humor and a sense that he really cared. He’s serious when necessary, humorous when needed and gentle when called for. Those are qualities that I find absolutely necessary in a doctor in order for me to trust & recommend to family & friends. And I highly recommen!

Dr. Paracha and his staff were wonderful in every way. During a time when you are feeling most vulnerable to have such a talented and caring doctor and staff greeting you and explaining in such simple details what you're about to go through is "Priceless!" I will be forever grateful.
