I've been MORE than happy with Dr. Parikh's care; he's taken the time to explain what he was doing each step along the way, and why. When I ran into issues with chemo, he was proactive in helping deal with them. His entire office has been amazing, from the person setting up appointments to the nurse practitioner. Cancer is no fun, but Dr. Parikh and his staff have made it a whole lot easier than I'd anticipated. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

When you are in Doc Parikh’s hands, you are in GOOD hands. I have been with Doc Parikh since Feb 2018 when first diagnosed. He ran all tests and tailored my treatment plan. After neoadjuvant chemotherapy, I have just completed my surgery. I haven’t finished all treatment yet, so far everything has been as planed and the result are amazing! This is the Doc who CARES, who HELPS you fighting the battale to win. Doc Parikh has a great team and staff as well. They are very friendly and efficient.

Dr. Parikh distinguishes himself among his field. His manner and explicit logical reasoning together with a comprehensive knowledge of the science are vital to his patient. I had been making trips to MD Anderson in Houston - I no longer do.

Hello, I initially went to Dr. Parikh on a referral from another doctor for my son. But, when I was there he asked how I was, I said fine. Then he asked if I was experiencing fatigue. He persisted and I said, I guess. He had me promise I would come in as a patient. I did and I'm forever grateful because he totally remedied my chronic anemia that I had severely struggled with for decades! He is the very best, I cannot thank him enough. He is more than a doctor, he truly cares.

Dr. Rupesh Parikh has been my Hematologist for five (5) years. He is always interested in how I am doing. He investigates treatment options on an ongoing basis. Both of us discuss how I am doing in my day-to-day life. He is open to all questions whether it deals with hematology or my primary care or any issues I have. He treats the WHOLE person. He is really good and caring.

I wish to retract a statement I made last week . I am the RN Heath Inspector who gave the dr. One star for the service my husband received. It was a miscommunication which was immediately corrected by th dr. Himself. I apologize if I gave anyone doubt that dr. Parikh is a respectable, knowledgeable and compassionate practitioner.

I am a Registered Nurse and a state of Nevada Health Inspector. I have always had respect for this dr. I do not any longer. My husband has been seeing him for 10 years for blood work to monitor his Coumadin. My husband has lost over 130 lbs since December 2017. Our PCP referred him to dr. Parikh for a possible diagnosis of cancer. It was a disgrace the way he was treated by his staff and his very condescending nurse. Unless you have cancer this dr. Will not see you. His nurse refused an appt.

I was referred to Dr Parikh by my pulmonary doctor who went out of the way since my cancer is throat and had nothing to do with my pulmonary issues. After seeing Dr Parikh yesterday for my first consultation, my wife and I were extremely impressed with his compassion and his communication. While cancer is frightening he helped put us at ease. He is putting together my treatment team and we feel this is the right place for us. The entire staff from front office to back were extremely helpful and

I can't speak highly enough of Dr. Parikh! He basically saved my life from stage IV triple negative breast cancer. He was kind and compassionate while I was at first so fearful of chemo and all my treatments might involve. He listens; really listens. He will explain every step thoroughly and answer all your questions. (I had a list of 15 at first.) He actually cares about your quality of life. He tailored treatments to avoid making me feel sick. He is so positive and determined to succeed.
