Two days before New Years, my family doctor told me I needed to have a stress test by a cardiologist ASAP. Dr. Parikh was the only cardiologist in Victoria that would examine me (a brand new patient), on Dec. 31, 2015. Veronica answered the phone, listened carefully to my situation (chest pains).. someone who had 2 stents back in 2001.. in need of a cardiologist to help me. She relayed my words to Dr. Parikh, and I was scheduled Thursday, the 31st. Dr. Parikh and his assistants gave me several tests. I wasn't in severe pain, but after reading my history 15 years ago, he decided to take no chances. The outcome is that I have a condition that can be treated with 2 heart medications and a slight diet modification. These medicines will alleviate and help prevent future chest pain; help me build up my heart muscle; and make it possible for me to function normally and go to work daily. It has been pointed out to me by medical people, including my brothers (both doctors), that Dr. Parikh may have saved my life, and definitely improved the quality of my life in the future! He is truly one of the nicest, most professional and personable doctors I've ever met. His staff of several nurses, techs. and clerical are extraordinary! I am forever grateful to Dr. Parikh. When I was leaving, he made it very clear to me, that he's just a phone call away, if an emergency ever arises. Peter Shure
Dr. Verma was my mothers specialist and he was the most honest and verbal doctor that treated her. I have always appreciated the fact that he went above and beyond when it came to the care of my mother. He and his staff were very comforting and very compassionate and never would I think that I would have such a close family type relationship with Dr. Verma and his staff. There were times that he would come in from out of town just to see her and would not let the day end without presenting himself to us at the hospital. My mother thought the world of Dr. Verma and whenever he treated her in the office or in the hospital, he and his staff always made it pleasant and we never encountered any problems or distress. Dr. Verma stuck by my mothers side, and I will always be grateful for all the love and concern that he showed to her, my brothers and myself.
My mother, father, siblings, husband and myself all see Dr. Verma. My parents saw him first and highly recommended him. My father was diagnosed with colon cancer and Dr. Verma is the one that found it. He has seen another gastroenterologist that did not catch it. Thank God the neighbor told my parents about Dr. Verma and his skills. My father was diagnosed and had surgery all in the same week. He is doing well. I keep Dr. Verma in my prayers every night because he gave us our father for hopefully many years. He is our angel. I highly recommend him to anyone that is looking for a compassionate physician. You never have to wait long and the staff is awesome with a family atmosphere. My family physician also only sends his patients to Dr. Verma so that also makes me feel like I'm in good hands. I wouldn't see anyone else.
