Meet Dr. Vipul Parikh
Dr. Vipul Parikh relocated his family from Louisiana to Haymarket, Virginia in the fall of 2008 to start up a new primary care practice. He is a board-certified internist (doctor for adults) and a board-certified pediatrician. He believes strongly in providing medical care that is well thought out and consistent with current, evidenced based guidelines. He believes it is important to spend time listening to patients and to deliver care in a compassionate manner.
Dr. Parikh was born in New Jersey, but spent most of his childhood growing up in southeastern Michigan where he later attended college and medical school at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor as part of a seven year integrated program. He graduated from University of Michigan Medical School in 1999. He completed a rigorous four year combined residency in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics at Baylor College of Medicine/Texas Medical Center (Houston, TX) in 2003. He received board certifications in both fields in the same year.
Dr. Parikh spent the following five years in academic medicine both as a practicing primary care physician and as a teacher. He initially worked for Massachusetts General Hospital near Boston as a primary care physician and as an instructor at Harvard Medical School. He moved to New Orleans in 2005 to join his wife who was completing her medical training. He worked for Tulane University Hospital & Clinic as a primary care physician and as an instructor for Tulane Medical School until summer 2008.
Dr. Parikh resides with his wife and two daughters in Haymarket. His wife is also a part-time practicing internist in Manassas, VA. In his free time he enjoys spending time with his family, playing tennis, watching sports, drawing and traveling.
