Unfortunately, I no longer see Dr.Parikh. He is an amazing doctor but his staff and equipment need work. There is a problem with returning phone calls, phoning in prescriptions, even with checking in to see him. Dr.Parikh is funny, and charismatic.

I will always be grateful to Dr. Parikh. I cannot say enough wonderful things. He helped me find relief from the pain I experience, helped me in other areas of my health, got me in touch with a wonderful team of doctors, and most importantly, he put me on a path to a permanent solution. I am no longer a patient, as I have moved away, but I will always remember him and be grateful for all he did. Thank you Dr. P!

When I was told to see a Pain Management doctor, I was concerned that I would be inundated with pills. I have arthritis up & down my neck & spine & stenosis of my spine, as well. Dr. Parikh seems to understand that I am in pain & wants to do what he can to help it. I love his assistant, Bryana. They are very kind & know that I am in pain & do their best to help me up & down off of the tables. I am not a dollar sign, I am a person. And they want to help me. That makes a world of difference.

Dr Parikh was my pain management Dr for a couple of years. Every time I went there I was treated with respect and I know that Dr. Parikh and his assistants Briana and Kim truly cared about me and my pain. Dr Parikh showed me through all of my options to help relieve my pain.Even through the not so fun pain shots, I felt as if they were really there for me. I wanted to bring them with me to Florida. I recommend Dr Parikh to anyone looking to get pain relief. He is a great Dr and human being ??

After three back surgeries, including a bone fusion @ L5/S1 in 2015, Dr. Parikh and his staff have helped pave the way for me to return to a fairly normal life. It's been a long healing process for me due to the 3 to 4 level spinal involvement, but with Dr. Parikh's image guided and carefully placed injections, my healing has been nothing short of miraculous. His staff is the most consistently courteous medical team I've worked with in recent years, & wait times are minimal. Highly recommend!

I stàrted having some lower back pain. When I bed down it was very hard to get up and when am sitting and getting up was worse.I was in Excruciate pain. I went to see Dr. Parikh sent me to go do physical therapy and had me to do MRI.He was able to identify the problem or issue with my spine and scheduled me for an Epidural Steroid injection guided by X-ray. I had the injection. He told me to apply ice and rest for about 24 hours and continue with Physical therapy which I did. Am now pain free.

Dr. Parikh has been managing my chronic conditions for three years. I have had two back surgeries, and continue to deal with chronic symptoms. Dr. Parikh's method of treatment is dynamic and multi-faceted, with successful results. The entire office, from the front desk, to the assistants and the nurse, are incredibly nice and very professional. They always listen to you, and treat you with care. Clean office, friendly staff, and great care with Dr. Parikh with each and every visit/procedure.

I have had excellent results with the injections Dr.Parika has given me in my back . I really appreciate the fact that I am not put to sleep, and able to drive afterwards. Could use some magazines in the waiting room and in the exam area.
in Cypress, TX |
Dr. Parikh and staff are very professional yet friendly and caring. The nurses are great!
cypress TX |
Dr. Parikh is amazing. I have been a long time client and he hasn't given up on me. Hes kind and compassionate. The office manager is a total night mare. She is rude and beyond un professional. I have seen a good many patients including myself that have been humiliated by her. If she would leave this would be the best practice. He has awesome caring nurses too.
Dr. Parikh takes the time to go over your history, do a complete examination, and comes up with a plan to improve your quality of life. He does not just put a bandaid on the issue that is causing the pain but will try to correct the issue. I have been going to him for a few years now and he is the best pain management Doctor I've seen. If all you want is pain medications then he won't be your best choice. However, if you want to regain your life back from pain he's the one to see

I first started to visit Dr. Parikh in 2014 after an insurance provider change. I read a previous comment from another patient whose experience was less than positive. My experience has been just the opposite. Dr. Parikh and his staff have been for me very attentive and even though I only see them every few months they remember me and my personal story. I am currently between jobs and the doctor adjusted my visit schedule to help with my financial situation. I recommend him - G B Houston Texas

I suffered a lower lumbar injury from football injury a couple years ago. I had to re-learn how to sit up, drive and walk. Due to a previous doctor closing, I was recommended to see Mr. Parikh. My first visit I was in an out, they don't really care about past injury or submit forms for medical records. I had to make my own MRI apt. Worst experience of my LIFE, awful Doctor I will never return and wouldn't recommend to anyone!
