Honestly he's the best dr I've seen that took my complaints seriously. He has put me at ease and now I am in the process of managing my symptoms. I have complete confidence in him as my dr. I have never had a hard time scheduling appointments and find that I am seen promptly.

I would not recommend Dr. Parikh, in the two years I saw him, he took me off of the meds that help me with that my previous Rheumatologist had put me on, he insisted that I take meds that I had already tried that did not work for me, he insisted that my previous rheumatologist was wrong in most of her diagnosis and then he was right and everything. I did notice every time I came in he had different staff working in the front office. All in all in my opinion he is not the doctor for me!
