Hiral D. Parekh, MD, is board-certified in internal medicine, hematology, and medical oncology, and practices at Cancer Specialists of North Florida's (CSNF) Riverside and Northside locations. Originally from India, Dr. Parekh received her medical degree from Govt Medical College in Surat, India. After receiving her Master of Public Health from the East Tennessee State University, she completed a residency and two fellowships at the University of Oklahoma and Cleveland Clinic, respectively.

The field of hematology and oncology is exciting and challenging, at the same time. The emotional turmoil that cancer diagnosis creates in someone’s life is impossible to describe, but she says the feeling of being able to help someone facing the biggest challenge of their life is very fulfilling for her. Dr. Parekh strives to be available to her patients 24/7 as a physician and as a friend.

Believing in the importance of helping patients understand their diagnosis, she creates a road map for their treatment plan and strives to empower them with a wealth of information. As their doctor, she wants to provide them with full support for the obstacles that they face emotionally, socially, and physically. She felt that Cancer Specialists’ mission to holistic cancer treatment aligned perfectly with her goal to support her patients in all ways they need. Dr. Parekh considers each of her patients like family.

When not at work, Dr. Parekh enjoys traveling, cooking, sketching and painting, and seeing the world through the eyes of her young daughters.
