She has expertise in the treatment of depression, anxiety, panic disorder, insomnia disorders, adult ADHD, OCD, PTSD, bipolar disorder, sleep, alcohol, marijuana and benzodiazepine use disorders.

I've been to a lot of different psychiatrists and Dr. Parikh is far and away one of the most empathetic and understanding, in my experience. Very highly recommended.

I started with Dr. Parikh a year ago, and what has made all the difference is her willingness to collaborate with other specialists to understand the mechanics and treatment of comorbid conditions. This, and her patience while intelligentlyand methodically making it through the labyrinth of treatment approaches and their impacts on many aspects of my well-being, made it possible to achieve a quality of life that I had given up on long ago. While her expertise and discipline in treatment is admirable, what’s equally satisfying is that she has been approachable, empathetic, mindful, clever, and non-judgmental. Eventually the word will get out and she’ll stop taking on new patients, so get a move on… --A very satisfied patient
