Front staff is always super friendly and accommodating. And, the nurses make you feel comfortable. The office itself is super clean and not in a sterile/hospital sort of way. Dr. Parhar takes the time to listen to what is going onand try and find the root of an issue rather than just medicate the symptom. Great care and service!

nurse and Dr. Parhar were ready to see me before I could get my paperwork filled out (that’s a good thing!) I went in with a few questions and everything was addressed! And not just a superficial acknowledgement of what Iwas saying or my concerns. She truly heard me! I’ll be back!

Always a good experience. I mean, no one really goes to the Doctor because they feel better. But, if you are going to see a Doctor, then Doctor Parhar is the one for you. The staff is just good- respectful, professional,and customer friendly. Doctor P is cool and smart. She listens to me and provides good feedback...

One of the things I love about Dr. Parhar is how she addresses my feedback as a patient. Modification of treatment (within clinical guidelines) or an explanation of why something applies or doesn't apply, given my medical history.

Visit was great! I showed up 5 minutes before my appointment time, filled out some paperwork, and was called back almost immediately after completing it. The nurse was nice, and I waited roughly ten minutes (maybe less) for the doctor. Shewas thorough, but to the point, and addressed all of my concerns. I had to get blood work done as well, and they were able to do that in a timely manner as well. I highly recommend this doctor (and office) as a Primary Care Doctor.
