Dr. Parikh's Care Philosophy

I provide thoughtful care to people with a focus on understanding and healing the deep-rooted sources of psychiatric symptoms. I supplement my biologic conceptualization of mental illness with my deep understanding of psychoanalytic thought, which enables me to think holistically about the human experience and pathologies that may arise. I only recommend medications when medically necessary. I am very cognizant of side effects and so try to keep regimens simple when possible. I like to meet people where they are, and think together with them to tailor an individual treatment plan that fits their needs. I have expertise in treating the entire spectrum of mental illness through an integrative approach -- with medications, psychotherapy and alternative treatments as needed. I have had extensive training in psychoanalytic and psychodynamic therapy, substance use disorders, OCD, Anxiety, Psychosis, Bipolar and Depression. I am also licensed to prescribe Suboxone.

Patient Comments (5)

I left an honest negative review about my experience with this Savant Care on Yelp. In retaliation, they hired a lawyer to send me a threatening letter to intimidate me into removing my "libelous posting". My lawyer said that my review is legal, and constitutionally protected. What kind of psychiatric practice would hire an attorney to threaten a former patient with baseless intimidation tactics? My opinion is that they are more concerned with growing their business than helping patients.

Dr. Parikh is knowledgeable, professional, compassionate, &understanding. She was the first psychiatrist, maybe person ever, to make me feel like I could finally just be honest about everything in my life. That it was a safe place. I was able to get a late diagnosis of adult ADHD and turn around a very rough path that the symptoms had brought me down. I look forward to keep working with her, and if you or someone you love may be worried there's something not right, I would highly recommend her.
