in State College, PA |
Dr. Parekh was very professional and caring. His attention to detail and my concerns was very reassuring to me. He took time with me and went over options and answered all my questions. I really appreciated that and also that if anything came up I would be able to reach him or someone from the office. He explained things to me in terms that I could understand and wasn't condescending. I would highly recommend him to family and friends.

Dr. Parekh and staff, including NEA staff are out of this world good at what they do. Dr. Parekh is an excellent surgeon and staff is very skilled. I wouldn't let anybody else touch my eyes. Thanks!!! if you need what they have, you are lucky to be in such good hands!
State College, PA |
At first, I found his gung-ho "we can do anything you want" attitude off-putting and I was distrustful, but the surgery itself was completely smooth and painless, and the results have been marvelous. I strongly recommend him as a surgeon.

Dr. Parekh took the time to answer all my questions and explain everything. He is a great doctor!
in Kane, PA |
I had advance stage of Glaucoma with very high pressure. He did everything possible to get the pressure under control. That was 2 years ago. 2 months ago the pressure was 11 and 12 on both eyes. I also had cataract on one eye. I highly recommend him.
Rockville, MD |
Awful. Wanted to do unnecessary procedures. Had to have my mothers copay in cash before he would even take the time to speak to her. Rude. Do not recommend. Money hungry.
