I tore my achilles tendon playing soccer earlier this year and I chose Dr. Parekh after doing research because he had the most experience specifically with ankle injuries and a focus on sports medicine and athletes specifically. He recommended surgery to repair the tendon and everything went well. My recovery has been quicker than anticipated and I'll be skiiing fairly soon. He was very knowledgeable and I always felt like I was getting expert and honest advice with no fluff. Highly recommend!

He was average. You are just a number literally. I have unusual problems, especially for my age. He never remembered me and did not review my chart before he came in the room. It was like he knew nothing about me, and I had to start from the beginning each time. Even though I was declared fully disabled by at functional capacity team at DUKE, he didn't want to give me a handicap sticker, I had to insist....strongly. I found the best Dr. & won't be back.

Dr. Parekh operated on me to correct a negligible surgery by another surgeon. When I came to him, I was worried that my foot would never be right again. After starting to work with him, I had all the faith that he was going to correct what had been done to me. He was able to remove all the hardware that had broken in my foot from the 1st surgery. Two months after Dr. Parekh operated on my foot, the bone is completely healed, my pain is gone, I can take a normal step. Dr. Parekh saved my foot.
