Personal Statement

As an Integrative Medicine practitioner I focus on a holistic approach to care that addresses not only physical, but also psychological, social, spiritual and environmental influences on health. By spending more time with my patients I create a personalized treatment plan that is tailored to each individual’s unique needs and circumstances. I combine the most cutting edge innovations of modern medicine with integrative modalities such as yoga, meditation, acupuncture and nutrition to help patients prevent diseases and attain optimal health. 

Dr. Parikh is an integrative medicine physician and a consultation with her does not replace a primary care visit.
