MM in New York – Jun 19, 2019
This surgeon is excellent. Visiting the area from NYC when I fell on the ice resulting in a serious wrist break. The ER put me in a cast up past my elbow with an estimated healing time of 12 weeks. I was devastated. 3 days later I met Dr Parikh and he delivered good news - he could operate immediately setting the bones back properly and I'd only have a removable splint. As a bonus he also fixed my carpal tunnel. Best news is he was right. Within hours of the operation I was back to full movement. With experienced PT back home my wrist regained all of its normal functioning. Skill aside he had an exceptional bedside manner, explained the procedure thoroughly and listened to every concern my husband & I had. Background: He did suggest I check into NYC surgeons since that's my home where there's an endless amount of surgical talent. But we were more than impressed with Dr P, so we stayed in Springfield and we couldn't be more pleased with our decision. I only wish we had more like him.

I had my double mastectomy or "top surgery with Dr. Parikh in October of 2018. I could not be more pleased with not only the results but his bedside manner and his ethics all around. I couldnt recommend him more

Excellent. He did carpal tunnel surgery on both hands. He told me if I had a scar he'd owe me a coffee...ha-no scars. Healed beautifully, he did the surgery at my wrist rather than in the hand. I have not had an issue with pain nor numbness since.

Very good. Listens well. Will continue to see him.

Dr. Parikh was respectful and knowledgeable and very responsive to my concerns and needs. I saw him for top surgery (curcumareolar double mastectomy) and he respected my gender, expression, and (non-binary, neutral) pronouns thoroughly the entire way. Down to earth, refreshing attitude.

I have already referred friends and family to Dr. Parikh. He is personable, professional and explains what he is thinking and doing as he moves through the office visit/exam. My son had an unexpected and anxiety provoking wrist injury that required surgery and Dr. Parikh and his staff were compassionate and understanding about his need to get in quickly and take the needed steps that would allow him to return to athletics quickly..
Michael J. McMullen in Easthampton, MA. – Nov 21, 2017
I've had a right thumb injury for the past thirteen months. I had previously seen THREE orthopedic surgeons. Dr. Parikh provided a caring physician's perspective to diagnosing both the injury and care options based on the patient's concerns, not the diagnostics. Best care I've received in years. We have a reasonable course of action and I am grateful for his caring demeanor, education and intelligence. Patient first!!!

Dr. Pranay Parikh is a very kind, and understanding Doctor. I went to see him for Top Reconstructive Surgery, and through the whole experience he was thoughtful, and explained what he was going to do through surgery, and after care.
Meghan in Northampton, Ma – Oct 17, 2017
Dr.Parikh helped me when I broke my 5th metacarpal in my right hand. I couldn't afford to be in a cast for 8 weeks during busy season. In a matter of days I had gone for a series of xrays and splints to scheduling the surgery and having full use of my hand in the following week. I am so grateful for Pranay's availability and flexibility when it comes to seeing patients. He took care of me and many of my other family members. I trust his work and would reccommend him to anyone looking for help.

Choosing a doctor from the internet is not an easy task, but from consultation to post-op evaluation I couldn't have been more pleased with Dr. Parikh. He is kind, respectful and knowledgeable. I had a double mastectomy, or "top surgery" and would highly recommend Dr. Parikh to anyone, especially anyone in the transgender community who is looking for a surgeon who truly understands what this procedure means to them. It's wonderful to know that doctors of this caliber exist.

Dr. Parikh is an exceptionally caring physician. He is the most caring surgeon I have ever met, with a tremendous knowledge base and exceptional bedside manner. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon or hand surgeon
1 Felicia in Amherst, MA – Jul 07, 2017
Dr. Parikh was very warm, and also informative about the procedure I needed to cure a trigger finger. I learned a lot , and my finger was cured! He was attentive, competent, and patient. I learned a lot about how my hand works as well as getting physical relief.
1 Ludlow, MA – May 29, 2017
Dr. Parikh was very helpful in explaining the cause of my discomfort, outlining the treatments available, formulating a course of action and moving forward with the most conservative procedure first. He is extremely knowledgeable and he imparts information in a very accessible manner. I highly recommend him for carpal tunnel issues.
3 Julie in Russell, MA – May 27, 2017
I recently had a breast reduction performed by Dr. Parikh. He is an artist in his profession. He has such a spiritual personality. His work exceeded my expectations. Its been six months since my surgery and I am still amazed at the results every day as the healing continues. I was so impressed I scheduled a tummy tuck for the end of this year.

Dr. Parikh is an excellent doctor. He operated on my eyelids and hand. I had lost a great deal of field of vision. The surgical results were amazing. My field of vision has dramatically improved. Don't hesitate to call him. It will change the quality of your life. Thank you doctor. I recommend him most highly.
Bre Humphries – Mar 28, 2017
Dr. Parikh was kind, knowledgeable and responsive to my medical goals. I could ask for nothing more from a surgeon.
Danny in Northampton, MA – Mar 22, 2017
Pranay Parikh has hands down the best bedside manner of any Specialist I've ever encountered. He is incredibly knowledgeable and really takes the time to explain things in a manner that the average patient can understand. I would highly recommend him across the board, especially for hand-related injuries such as trigger finger.
1 Lily – Feb 17, 2017
I went to Dr. Parikh for a sports accident. I had a UCL tear in my thumb and he helped me out right away. From the first meeting and him explaining the course of action, everything went really quick and easy. He was very helpful and personable in being that this was my very first surgery. I am glad that I chose to go to him.
4 Carol Sharac in Easthampton, MA – Feb 09, 2017
Dr. Parikh is an excellent communicator. He explained in lay terms the 3 options I had for my issue (arthritis in hand). He is very thorough & showed me a tutorial on the computer of a surgical procedure for my hand if I elected that option. Dr. Parikh made me feel very comfortable & I would recommend him without hesitation. He gave me plenty of time for questions and answered them very clearly. The wait time was minimal, staff efficient and friendly, entire facility was very clean.
2 Kate in South Hadley, MA – Jan 12, 2017
He is simply the BEST!!!! So kind, patient, understanding and down to earth. He took the time to explain things and answer any and all questions....ensure that I understood our plan of care. I feel amazing now thanks to him!
2 Jason in Holyoke, MA – Dec 20, 2016
Dr. Parikh has away of explaining your diagnosis in the simplest of terms. I had a full understanding of what my procedure would be and why it would help me. Great bedside manner! This is a doc you will trust from the moment you meet him. Everyone on his staff were awesome as well. Very professional and at the same time down to earth and caring. You just know your in good hands right from the start.
1 Carol in Orange, MA – Dec 16, 2016
I am extremely thankful to have been referred to such a professional, talented, and caring doctor as I had in Dr. Parikh. As a cancer patient, there are a lot of emotional and physical impacts the patient faces. Working with Dr. Parikh, I enjoyed going to my appointments. It is very clear that he wants the best result for the patient, does not rush through just to get it done, and is very methodical and thoughtful in his work. Because of his true talent, I had a terrific surgical result.
1 Debbie R. in Ma – Oct 03, 2016
Dr Parikh, first off, is an amazing surgeon. I had 5 moles on my face removed 2 months ago and you would be hard pressed to see where they were. Very thorough and skillful. In addition, his bedside manner is fantastic. He makes you feel comfortable from the beginning. He is an extremely likable person and the office staff are great as well. I would recommend this Dr. for any work you may need.
Rob Postel in Northampton, MA – Sep 19, 2016
I had an injury that affected the functioning of my hand and could have become a permanent disability. Dr. Parikh was extremely thoughtful and smart in his approach to this problem. I followed his advice, the problem gradually resolved and I avoided surgery. I recommend him without reservation.
Derek in Amherst, MA – Sep 11, 2016
Dr. Parikh is an awesome, patient oriented Doctor. I wish he could do all of my healthcare. He will answer all questions and make more appointments if you need them, to ask questions or reassure you about your upcoming surgery.
LG in Unionville, CT – Sep 01, 2016
Dr. Parikh was great right from the start. He was helpful and reassuring throughout the whole process. I would highly recommend him to anyone. His entire team was warm and caring as soon as I walked in the door. I am extremely happy with the results and can't thank him enough.
Coventry, CT – Jul 30, 2016
Dr. Parikh was very friendly and informative. He really treats you like a person, and not just a patient.
Elinor D. in Florence, MA – Jul 22, 2016
I am very grateful for the kind and professional care I received from Dr. Parikh before, during, and after my surgery. At my first appointment he assured me that he could help me and went on to explain exactly what he would do. Because of this I was very confident that I had an excellent doctor taking care of me. I highly recommend Dr. Parikh.
1 Carol in Wilbraham, MA – Jul 19, 2016
Dr. Parikh is an expert plastic surgeon. He is also very caring and goes out of his way to make the patient feel at ease. He truly has a servant's heart, an unusual quality in someone with such a high level of education.
Tom in Somers, CT – Jun 08, 2016
I would recommend Dr. Parikh to anyone I associate with. He is highly intelligent yet he easily connects with you in a way that makes the whole process very understandable. He is friendly and very easy going and I never questioned I had a good doctor looking over me. He even promised me a cup of coffee if I could see where the surgery on my thumb was a year from now...I have no doubts I will not see a mark!
5 Oliver in Salem, MA – Apr 26, 2016
Dr. Parikh and everyone in his office went above and beyond to completely change my life. As an FTM transgender patient trying to achieve the dream of living my life as myself, I know that it is extremely difficult to find someone with the experience, understanding, and passion for justice to make that happen for someone like me. Dr. Parikh demonstrated immense compassion, confidence, intelligence and kindness throughout this process. This is the person you want to see.
1 BLopez in Springfield, ma – Feb 15, 2016
Back in 2011, I was in a bad car accident, and needed reconstructive surgery done on my right eye socket and part of my nose. Dr. Parikhs empathetic demeanor and intelligence only made me trust him. He gave me the confidence. 5 years later, I get only but compliments for the great job he did. I...Read More
3 Sam Prickett in Easthampton, MA – Jan 08, 2016
I met with Dr. Parikh after de-gloving the tip of my little finger just below the fingernail. From the first Dr. Parikh's demeanor and empathetic intelligence inspired confidence. He and his team were always available and willing and every situation throughout my injury, surgery, and recovery was addressed swiftly and intelligently handled. I was given a range of options and possibilities at every stage of the process and was comfortable every step of the way. I would recommend to anyone.
