5 out of 5 stars

Dr. Parikh answered all of my questions, as well as my dad's. He explained to us the pros and cons of each types of treatments, Dr. P talked with us in detail about my pulmonary hypertension and how the different types of treatments may or may not work,

5 out of 5 stars

Since switching to Dr. Parikh, I know I'm heard & his concern if genuine! He's so thorough testing & getting to the bottom of any problems or difficulties. He makes me feel comforted & well cared for. He makes sure I understand thoroughly what we've talked about. I often bring my adult daughter with me. He treats her with respect also. We love Dr. Parikh!

5 out of 5 stars

Dr. Parik treats my questions as important, listens, shares info, teaches, explains the reasons why treatments need to be done, without making me feel as though he's pushing me out of the office. I wish every doctor would treat me the way he does. He's excellent, knowledgeable and caring.

He will help you feel as good as you can within the realm of your situation( PH) and help you understand how to help yourself live as reasonably as possible. I feel that I still have a good amount of time to enjoy life. He’ll greet you with an Almighty smile and LISTEN to your concerns. He gets more than five stars from me.
