Dr. Parekh was excellent. He explained what we wanted to accomplish and made it very clear. I had questions that he patiently answered. I didn't feel rushed or made to feel as if I was an interruption to his day. He also talked to me. I understand that information has to be entered into the computer, but Dr. Parekh looked me in the eye and gave me more attention than he did entering information into the laptop. I would say 80% to me and 20% entering information. I have two follow appointments with him and look forward to the positive outcome.
