Abrasive, unprofessional, dismissive, defensive, and incompetent to boot. If you enjoy being berated, taunted, and threatened by someone who has no business practicing psychiatry, then perhaps this is the doctor for you.

I was admitted to the short term unit at McLean Hospital on 04/02/2012, Dr. parekh was the psychiatrist appointed to treat me. I was there for depression and anxiety disorder, but I am also someone who lives with severe, intractable, chronic pain. This Dr. Just couldn't ot wouldn't grasp the fact that with chronic pain, comes depression. She was very abrasive and extremely curt. I left the hospital worse off than when I arrived. This woman has NO business treating depressed, vulnerable people. I have reported her to the Department of Mental Health. I have never been treated with such disrespect' in my entire life!!

Favorite phrasing included "It's all in your head" and "Do you SERIOUSLY think . . . ?"
