Dr. Parikh’s clinical interests include treating patients with advanced malignancy utilizing minimally invasive techniques. Specific areas of interest include liver directed therapy for primary and secondary liver cancer, as well as for primary kidney cancer. Additionally, Dr. Parikh is interested in treating malignant and non-malignant tumors within the GU system, such as prostate cancer and benign prostatic hyperplasia, respectively.
Dr. Parikh earned his undergraduate degree from Columbia University in New York City, and subsequently worked as an investment banker after graduation. After deciding that he wanted to have a significant impact on the daily lives of patients, he obtained MD and MBA degrees from Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston, MA. He then completed diagnostic radiology residency at NYU Medical Center in New York City, before moving back to Boston to complete a fellowship in Angiography and Interventional Radiology at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital – Harvard Medical School.

The Provider Rating is an average of all responses to specific care provider-related
questions from our nationally-recognized
Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey.
Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score.
Patients that are treated in outpatient or hospital environments may receive
different surveys, and the volume of responses will vary by question.
Comments are gathered from specific care provider-related questions from our
Patient Satisfaction Survey . The comments are submitted by patients
and reflect their views and opinions. Patients are de-identified for confidentiality and
We post both positive and negative comments from the surveys. We do not post comments
that are libelous, slanderous, profane, irrelevant or otherwise inappropriate or may
risk the privacy of our patients.
A “[…]” in the comments below indicates de-identified patient information or comments that
are unrelated to the patient’s experience with the visit to the provider, such as
comments related to another provider, about the survey itself, or otherwise completely
Not all providers will have a star rating or comments. In order to ensure accuracy of our
ratings, we only display ratings for providers who have a minimum of 30 completed from
the previous 12 months.
Provider Ratings and comments are gathered from our nationally-recognized Press Ganey
Patient Satisfaction Survey. If a provider does not have ratings or comments listed it
can be for several reasons, including:
The provider has not yet received the minimum number of patient satisfaction surveys
to be eligible for display. We require a minimum of 30 surveys before we post
results to ensure that the rating is statistically reliable and a true reflection of
He or she may be a researcher or other type of provider that does not see patients.
The provider practices in a specialty or office that does not use the specified
surveys currently used for these ratings.
