Patient Comments (6)
Dr Parepally was very nice and fun and caring (but you only get to she her the first visit, then after that her assistant) however she refused to believe something major I told her about my history, put me on med that caused me a severe and terrifying hypoglycemic reaction, and when I called about it she said to "just take every other day". Wanted me to change from a thyroid med that was working fine to one that she had coupons for, but was till 3x what I was paying for the med I was on.

I was so pleasantly surprised to walk into her office and first get a welcome at check-in. The nurse and other assistants were just as nice and friendly. I can't say enough of how much I liked Dr. Parapally. She listened, was so understanding and immediately began figuring out next steps. Thank you!

The worst Dr. Her PA's are more qualified than she is and more eager to help you get better. DON"T use Dr. Parapally!!!! Hypo and she has no idea what she is doing!!

Absolutly terrible, do not go to her, you will regret it! To start, dr. Parapally was rude, complaining when i asked her to explain what was going on with me since I had recently been diagnosed with hyperthroidism. Then, 3 times she canceled my appointments bc she said she had to go to the hospital and never attempted to reschdule! Every time you call the front desk, the people sound miserable and mean, and they are! Finally we moved to so I tried to get my records and they never sent them

Dr Parepally was my endo at a former location and I found she not only misdiagnosed me but prescribed 2-3 times the amount of medication I should have been taking. She was impossible to schedule with and the one time I showed up at the office and the door was locked! Sometimes I would sit in the waiting room for 20-30 minutes then I would be taken back and have to wait another 20-30 minutes more!

Dr. Parepally is by far the BEST Dr. I've ever had. I came to Pittsburgh from being treated at the Cleveland Clinic for many years so my level of expectations were high. Dr. Parepally by far superseded my expectations and went beyond what most Dr.'s would do. Not only does she know her stuff but she is warm and caring and funny too!!! She immediately put me at ease, knew exactly what my ailment was and helped me take control of it. I had gone to a plethora of Dr.'s who had no idea how to help.
