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.

Patient Reviews


Rating based on the helpfulness of the doctor's nurse and/or medical assistant (MA)

4.9out of 5
  • November 30, 2022

    The entire staff was kind, courteous, and helpful. The nurse and doctor both had a phenomenal bedside manner, and I really appreciated the doctor’s insight and intelligence. He was extremely down-to-Earth, and he managed to be quick and efficient without seeming rushed. His demeanor and adeptness made me feel entirely at ease and trusting of him and his treatment. I wish I could find a GP like him!

    I really like that the doctor looked at my chart, askede questions about my history and medicine.

  • November 28, 2022

    I showed up 10 minutes early. After waiting till 15 minutes past my appointment time - I walked in to locate a nurse and was then showed to a waiting room. Would have preferred to not have to do that.

    Dr. listens, evaluates carefully your issue & truly cares about helping you.

  • November 18, 2022

    Location is far and virtual options should be easier to schedule.

    I was a walk-in with a bee sting and very allergic. I was taken care of immediately and very appreciative of that. Everyone was awesome.
