I recently had cataract surgery performed by Dr. Parekh. My experience with Dr. Parekh and his team was fantastic, from the moment Loren introduced herself, to my surgery and follow-up appointments. Dr. Parekh explained the procedure he would be doing and eased any anxiety I had regarding the surgery. He is very compassionate as well as an excellent Dr. His staff, Loren and Ashley, are amazing! Loren also eased all my concerns and added a personal touch to my surgery and subsequent visits.

Dr. Parekh and his team were thorough, professional and provided exceptional advice and care. Everything from the first appointment through scheduling and surgery was well organized and easy for the patient. In addition, clear post-surgery instructions were provided along with everything you would need as you left surgery. You even receive a personal call the night after surgery. I highly recommend them and am extremely grateful for their personalized care.

I recently underwent cataract surgery and found Dr. Parekh was excellent ! The entire experience from the initial consultation with him and the actual surgeries as well as through the follow up with my Optometrist at Nittany Eye in State College could not have been better. I recommend him without reservation.

Start to finish, excellent experience with cataract surgery. Options for lenses were discussed. Procedures were explained. At my first visit a time line that worked around my schedule was established including all follow up appointments. As a result I approached the surgery with the confidence that everything would go well, and it did. I chose mono vision lenses and my vision is terrific. A professional, stress free experience with easy recovery. Great staff and Dr. Parekh has a sense of humor.

I have a wonderful first experience and look forward to my second experience with cataract surgery in a week. The process of evaluation and then surgery went very well and consistent with everything that I was told to expect. I found Dr. Parekh to be direct, to the point, and very willing to answer my questions about the procedure and what to expect post surgery. He was on point in his responses and I am extremely pleased with the outcome.

Dr. Parekh not only invited my questions, but he answered them thoroughly and thoughtfully. He conveys confidence to his patients both before and on the day of surgery. My post surgical experiences have unfolded just as described. I've been impressed by the willingness of Dr. Parekh, Kerstin Blough, and Ashley Kiehl to be contacted pre- and post-surgery. Can't believe how bright and colorful the world is after my cataract surgery!

Dr. Parekh is absolutely amazing! He not only thoroughly reviewed options and procedures for my cataract surgery, be he also allayed any fears I had regarding the surgery. My vision is improving daily and I anticipate the same outcome for my other eye after surgery next week. I wish to thank Dr. Parekh for using his God-given talent and abilities so carefully and expertly.

My experience with Dr. Parekh was all that I could hope for. Professional ,caring and on time. Same is true for all of the nurses and other people involved in my Parekh experience. I would also like to make sure that Dr. Brown and his staff are included in my kudos. Thanks to all. Chip Ward (George)

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.

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.
