Importance of a Family Physician
In the increasingly fragmented world of health care, one thing remains constant: family physicians who are dedicated to treating the whole person. Our Raleigh family medicine’s cornerstone is an ongoing, personal patient-physician relationship focusing on integrated care.
Broad Spectrum Health Care in the Triangle
Unlike other ties that are limited to a particular organ or disease, family medicine integrates care for patients sixteen-years-old and up of both sexes, and advocates for the patient in a complex health care system. As a Raleigh area family care physician, Dr. Parikh possesses unique attitudes, skills, and knowledge which qualifies him to provide continuing and comprehensive medical care, health maintenance and preventive services to each member of the family regardless of sex or type of problem, be it biological, behavioral, or social.
Dr. Parikh Cares for YOUR Family
Dr. Parikh is committed to providing your family with the utmost in family care. He is passionate about helping each member of your family maintain their greatest degree of health by providing the very care for each and every aspect of their health.
The best thing about having a family doctor is that the doctor will understand a lot more about the family as a whole. When different family members have different doctors, there is no central “repository” of information. By treating the whole family, Dr. Parikh understands more about your particular family dynamic from a lot of different angles.
Even suggesting diet changes which may be beneficial to the family as whole is much easier when all members of the family are known. There certainly are cases where each family member might need their own doctor for various reasons, but being able to call up one doctor whenever there is a health issue is a BIG plus. Additionally, just the comfort factor of knowing Dr. Parikh and his staff from more frequent interactions goes a long way towards making going to your doctor’s office more like visiting friends than the cold, clinical occasion it can often be with other practices.
If you need to visit Dr. Parikh during a busy workday, we can schedule appointments for you at either location in Brier Creek or in our Cary NC office. If you work in RTP, our Cary office is just around the corner!
