As bad as other reviews describe

Worst health provider ever seen. Always kept me waiting 45+ minutes, at least one time, I was told by support staff, because she was at lunch. When I asked her how to arrive when she was ready, she said "Do you want me to refer you to someone who is on time?", which is odd and almost comic thing for a doctor to say. Then, without any prior mention of them, she said that the doctors in my PCP group very often kept patients waiting for a long time, when, in fact, I told her that over scores of appts. with PCP, I never waited more than 15 minutes, and that was very rare. But, she insisted my PCP were always very late. I experienced her odd behavior as described in other reviews. Honestly, I thought she had untreated mental illness. Left her after very few visits.

Picked at her bare feet

Dr. Parekh was referred to me by my primary care doctor at MGH because I was feeling depressed. I saw her a few times, and each time, I waited on average 30 minutes before she saw me. One time, when she was talking to me, she took her shoes off and put her bare feet up on the chair she was sitting on and was picking at her toes!! I was appalled at the rudeness of it all! I will NEVER go back to her.

HIPPA

Contact records at MGH or wherever she served you and you can get all the notes she wrote about you. Your HIPPA rights. Prepare before receive your psychiatric records and her notes of your sessions. Please take every caution and speak with a trusted person, ( not a doctor) to be safe and not devastated as some patients have been.

Why hasn't this abusive dr been handled.

Suspicious, paranoid, and race relations appear to be a trigger. Possible SUDs, denial, and angry. MGH has been put on notice but apparently they haven't notified her. MGH is exposed to so much litigation with this "creative" doctor. Patients are not being protected.

BELLIGERENT

RUN DON'T WALK AWAY FROM THIS FRIGHTENINGLY BAD DOCTOR. RECKLESS INDIFFERENCE TO PATIENT CARE. THIS DOCTOR DESPERATELY NEEDS TO ADDRESS HER NARCISSISTIC INJURIES. SHE'S SEVERELY IMPAIRED.

Avoid this doctor

Reading the other person's review, now I realize I wasn't the crazy one. I was assigned to Dr. Parekh due to inability to focus. She gave me Wellbutrin and insisted that I was depressed. I kept saying to her that no, my primary thing is not depression. I am somewhat depressed, yet, but it's due to not being able to work because I can't concentrate. She repeatedly ignored this and continued to insist that I could not focus due to depression. So she gave me Wellbutrin, which had awful side effects for me. I experienced real depression (like crying for no reason) and heart palpitations. She said that I made up the heart palpitations (and even sent me to get an EKG just to prove me wrong). I suggested to her that maybe I had ADD instead of depression. She brushed it off and said, "Everybody thinks Ritalin is going to turn them into Bill Gates." Anyway, long story short, two takeaways: (1) People who see a shrink are probably in a vulnerable state. (2) People in vulnerable state should thus be protected by all means from exposure to Ranna Parekh.

Unable to communicate effectively with intelligent patients. Only able to prescribe drugs, not a good therapist.
