Dr. Parekattil and his staff are, in one word, fantastic! His personal credentials are simply amazing. He takes the time needed to completely explain any planned procedures and answer your questions thoroughly. The office staff is efficient, caring and understanding. They treat you politely, respectfully and really care. You are not a number. After having been treated by other urologists I finally "found" Dr. Parekattil and his staff. They gave me a new lease on life.

In this day and age of our world when so many are saying what is wrong in the world I would like to tell you about a person who makes people's lives right.....Dr. Sijo J. Parekattil, is hands-down one of the best medical doctors I have seen for my urology needs. His demeanor and bed-side manner are best described as calm, positive, thorough, attentive, flexible, and personable and extremely caring. I saw him for a urinary tract problems and kidney stones. Dr. Parekattil, is truly amazing.

Dr. Parekattil who is a gifted surgeon who also has a great surgical team and staff. I am so blessed to be a patient at the PUR clinic... simply the best.
in Clermont, FL |
First let me say I have a profound appreciation for Dr. Parekattil. Simply stated, part of my treatment included TURP surgery, and the results are what are remarkable, i.e. sleeping through much of the night, and because of improved rest my energy level has greatly improved. I've lost nothing and I would be the first to ask for the surgery again if need be. Thanks to Dr. P and Mary.

Very talented Surgeon. Very calming and accurate in his description of procedures. Simply the best.

The PUR Clinic (Dr. Parekattil and Dr. Brahmbhatt) brought me back to normal life. I am almost 40 and at last free of pain, ready to begin a new chapter of my life. It is reassuring to know that if the pain ever comes back, there is someone who can deal with it.
Port Saint Lucie, FL |
I was very pleased with Dr. Parekattil's staff who were concerned, pleasant, and friendly. Upon seeing Dr. Parikattil, I was very satisfied with his examination and consideration of my concerns. He was very thorough and gave me a 2 part treatment plan. Upon completion of my treatment and surgery, I have been extremely satisfied with my results. I have had very little reoccurrence of pain. I highly recommend Dr. Parekattil concerning the treatment of groin issues.
Clermont, FL |
I’m writing this testimonial because I have been in pain for two years straight and in one afternoon, Dr. Parekattil solved my issue, took away my pain and I am now a much happier person! I only wish I had gone in sooner as I thought i would have to live with my problem for the rest of my life. Dr. Parekattil took the time to explain that my issue was normal and that many men experience this pain after a hernia surgery. He immediately had the solution, we scheduled the surgery and here I am with
in Loganville, GA |
Dr. Parekattil and the PUR Clinic are great. Recommended by my urologist. I traveled over 400 miles for treatment. Prior to arriving at the facility I was nervous and skeptical but the Dr. and staff were very professional. That and their bedside manor relieved all my anxiety and nervousness. Pre-op and post-op were a breeze and I have no recollection of surgery. Two months after surgery and I am now pain free. Glad I did it.
in Sarasota, FL |
My family and I will be forever grateful to the PUR Clinic and Dr. Parekattil. I recommend the PUR Clinic for anyone considering Robotic Surgery (which I had done), or for any of their other services.
I had a rare, horribly painful, and extremely complicated urologic problem and Dr. Parekattil performed a successful surgery that many other urologists who were consulted would not even attempt. He is a uniquely talented surgeon, especially with robotic surgery. Please consider that someone with his skill might not be exceedingly patient or full of warm fuzzies. I promise you, if you need surgery, the thing that counts is the skill of the surgeon. I remain very grateful to him for his help.
