Patient Comments (1)

I felt that Dr Parikh spent time explaining my options to me and spent time explaining the reason why I should have my colonoscopy. I did not feel pressured to have the procedure and I appreciated his honesty. I've had three colonoscopies with Dr Parikh and felt that I was in good hands.
