“‘The medicine and my efforts account for 10 percent of your overall healthcare, 90 percent of your overall healthcare rest with you and your lifestyle decisions’
Dr. Parikh’s words are a refreshing sentiment in an age where Americans want to take a pill for everything. I have been a patient of Dr. Parikh for the last 10 years. I suffer from diabetes and high blood pressure and for years to my chagrin I subscribed to the “pill for everything” philosophy. It has been easy to intellectualize Dr. Parikh’s sentiments and still not deal with the underlying issues. My breakthrough came when Dr. Parikh sat me down and had a frank discussion about what I was doing to myself. He reasoned that I was not just hurting myself but I was hurting the people who loved and depended on me. My “Aha” moment!!!!
Suffice is to say, I respect and trust Dr. Parikh implicitly. He has become an ally and a friend in my healthcare successes. I consider him and his staff part of my extended family. I can only say that if I live to be 110 years old my hope would be that Dr. Parikh would live to be 110 years old plus one day: Thus, I would never live in a world where he was not my Doctor.”
“I have been a patient of Dr. Himanshu Parikh for more than 10 years. During that time I have found him to be an excellent doctor. He always takes the time to listen to me when I have health concerns. Dr. Parikh explains the possible treatments and the next course of action which may or may not involve active intervention. He is proactive to discuss issues that he feels are pertinent to my continued overall health. He treats you like you’re a person not someone he needs to move through the office.
He is very open when a referral is needed to explain why he is recommending the specific doctor but is not taken aback when a different doctor is chosen. When I ask other doctors about Dr Parikh, I have always received a very positive response on his abilities which only serves to reinforce my confidence in him as a very competent caring doctor.
His staff will work with you for scheduling appointments. They manage the appointments such that on a regular basis you are seen on time and all necessary preparatory work is done efficiently.
In my opinion, this is a very caring, highly competent doctor with a very professional office staff. I have no doubt that I am getting the best continuing health care possible with Dr. Parikh.”
“I have been a patient of Dr. Parikh for over seven years now. He is very knowledgeable and professional and is always willing to listen and to provide medical treatment options that he has fully explained. I have the utmost confidence in the care that he provides. Dr. Parikh, as well as his staff, all greet me with warmness and a genuine concern for my health and well being. Without a doubt, I am treated as a person and not just a chart or a number.
I was living and working in another region of the country for about a year and a half, and was very glad to return to Dr. Parikh’s care when I moved back into the Triangle Area. Dr. Parikh receives 5 stars from me and I am happy to recommend him to family , or friends, as a caring and compassionate physician.”
Dr. Parikh has been my family physician for over 10 years, and I have received outstanding care from him during that time. Dr. Parikh takes his time with his patients. I never feel rushed and I feel he listens carefully to any concerns I have. He always provided detailed explanations for any tests or procedures. He is diligent in follow up and monitoring progress over the long term. Dr. Parikh also makes himself readily available. I am always able to get in to see him on the same day when I need to. I have a great deal of trust and respect for Dr. Parikh and would recommend him without hesitation to family and friends.
I have been a patient of Dr. Himanshu Parikh since 2001. He has consistently proven to be competent and supportive in the management of both my chronic and acute health issues. He is a kind physician who takes the time both to listen to my health concerns and fully explain options for treatment. I have never walked out of the office with any questions unanswered. In the complex world of overall health management, he is my anchor.
The staff at Dr. Parikh’s office is friendly and efficient. Calls are answered and appointments scheduled with ease and consideration for my teaching schedule. They call me by name and always have a smile on their face. It is very rare that I have ever had to wait past my scheduled appointment time whether it is for routine checkups or a sick visit. The insurance process is always handled smoothly.
It is without hesitation that I recommend Dr. Parikh to any individual who is seeking superior health care in an efficient and friendly office.
My family and I have been patients of Dr. Himanshu Parikh for several years. He has consistently treated our medical needs in a caring, professional and highly competent manner. Moreover, he has earned our utmost trust and confidence, allowing us to refer other relatives,friends and colleagues to his practice without reservation. We value his medical advice and our friendship that has developed because of his compassion and attention to addressing appropriately health-care issues affecting my family’s welfare.
