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.

    You can tell that Dr. Parekh works hard to make the patient comfortable. He is very knowledgeable, but I was extremely impressed that he asked the opinions of 2 other doctors, to make sure that he was probably providing me with the best medical decision possible. When I had a question about the lab results, he patiently explained it to me, and then going over each and every one of the lab results so that I would understand. I love that he made sure I understood everything and was comfortable with the plan going forward. I love his bedside manner, he is concerned about my health, makes me feel at ease, and yet he is extremely professional.
