Are you a patient of Sachin S. Parikh, MD?
5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery
Show More Dr. Parikh and his partner Dr. Lieberman are superlative - outstanding skills, care, and bedside manner. If you need a plastic surgeon, whether for a required surgical repair or simply to beautify yourself, I have no doubt whatsoever that you will receive the best results with these remarkable doctors. I first came to The Redwood Center in December 2012 having been referred to them by the doctors who performed my MOH's surgery (skin cancer). I had a dime-size hole in my nose. Freaky! But between Dr. Parikh's upbeat, can-do attitude - "We'll fix this, you'll do great!" to Dr. Lieberman's considered, thoughtful and exacting attention to what repair would give me the best results, I was immediately at ease. Dr. Parikh was able to do some incredible jigsaw puzzle repair using skin from my own nose and I was shocked to find that within a month, my nose had repaired really nicely and to most people, was a good as new! Ah, but we are our own worst critics, and good as new was still pretty ugly. After spending a year focusing on my nose (among other things don't worry), I realized that, despite Dr. Parikh's fabulous repair, it was still, as it had been since I'd broken it as a teenager, a large, crooked, wonky nose, made worse by a deviated septum that obstructed my breathing. Drs Parikh and Lieberman to the rescue! Just two weeks ago they performed a septorhinoplasty and my nose looks and feels amazing! Totally natural (not weird nose-jobby looking which was a big concern of mine), straight, and I can breath so much better. The doctors said my nose was basically shattered when they got in there - 5.5 hours of surgery putting my nose back together like a broken egg, and it's better than it was before my skin cancer. The saga continues with one more surgery - the eyelids. I know I'm sounding like an addict, but once I met these doctors I knew I was in good hands and my eyelids as mentioned above were droopy (upper) and baggy (lower). Throughout all of these surgeries, the doctors have been compassionate, professional, attentive, and knowledgeable, not to mention superlative artists. They answer my calls immediately, check on me after hours and on weekends, call me with thoughts or questions about my healing, and never fail to put me at ease when I'm worried. I love that they both consult, as another Yelp review mentioned. It's really comforting to have two expert opinions - and a big time-saver not feeling the need to go get a second opinion. Finally, their office staff is so sweet, warm, welcoming and encouraging. Every time I walk into their offices and am greeted by Cristina or Leti with a warm smile, hug, bottle of water. I feel so lucky to have found this place!

Show More Dr. Parikh was wonderful - He was extremely patient and very detailed in giving me all the information I needed to make an intelligent decision with regards to the procedure. I did not feel pressured at all. He throughly prepared me for what to expect. He is a highly skilled surgeon and I was able to obtain the results I had hoped for. The follow-up care was also wonderful and I truly believe he had a genuine concern for me as a patient. If he was still in the NY area, I would consider other procedures. Dr. Parikh was terrific.
5 out of 5 stars Facial Reconstructive Surgery
Show More I was referred to Dr. Lieberman by another Stanford area Dermatological Surgeon after a diagnosis of melanoma in situ. I was referred to Dr. Lieberman and his partner Dr. Parikh by Dr. Jon Starr, a highly respected dermatological surgeon in the Stanford area. Following a diagnosis of melanoma in situ, Dr. Starr had performed six slow MOHs surgeries on my left cheek and knew I needed talented plastic surgeons to reconstruct my face. From the first day I met with Drs. Lieberman and Parikh I was thankful I had found my way to their practice. They were intelligent, thoughtful and straight forward, yet sensitive with some one like me who had never even considered having plastic surgery before. To say I was vulnerable at our first meeting is an understatement. Now, only one month later I can add that Dr. Lieberman and Dr. Parikh are also highly skilled and creative surgeons. Given what they started with, the result is wonderful, even miraculous. I would not hesitate to urge anyone with an interest in facial plastic surgery to seek out their help. Their after care has also been superb. Christina, who runs their office, is also kind, welcoming and nurturing. Really, you can't do better!
