About Hetu Y. Parekh, MD

  • Dr. Parekh’s early years were spent in India, then in the U.S. in Chicago and Massachusetts. When he is not at work, he enjoys “anything outdoors,” whether just a walk in the neighborhood or hiking and picnicking with his family. Dr. Parekh also enjoys traveling, cooking, and “of course, eating at food trucks!” His favorite area spot is the hike-and-bike trail loop around Lady Bird Lake.

I chose medicine because it is one of the few careers so exclusively people-focused that I can talk to many different people each day and get to know them! After practicing general pediatrics for several years, I chose to become an allergist because I was seeing so many patients with allergy problems and really wanted to delve deeply into that specific area. I enjoy Allergy so much because treating people for their underlying condition with allergy drops or shots lets me get to the root cause of the problem instead of just giving a medication to put a ‘bandaid’ on the problem.
