I love seeing Dr. Parikh! He is always so friendly and kind to me and my family! I wish the location of his office was better but the doctor and his staff are great. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND them to anyone looking for a new primary care doctor!
Lexington, IN |
I was hospitalized...on strong narcotics for abdominal and back pain. I never saw the doctor, however his nurse practitioner visited and decided to discharge me without anything for pain. I now must wait two weeks to see another doctor while in serious pain. I needed a doctor not another nurse. The hospital nurses were doing a great job!
