Dr. Jai Parekh, "Dr J," is a very experienced, board-certified anterior segment eye surgeon and ophthalmologist. He is the managing partner at Brar-Parekh Eye Associates, NJ, which has been servicing the community for well over 40 years, now. The group handles many aspects of comprehensive eye care including retina, glaucoma, and oculoplastics. Dr. J follows the motto of "seeing many patients, one patient at a time," and given his internal medicine background, takes care of the "patient first," and then "their eyes!"
Dr J is a frequent lecturer and guest speaker at local, national, and international meetings, and spends quite a bit of time educating his peers on the pearls of ophthalmic surgery. He believes in innovation and has developed instruments and devices to help surgeons assist their own patients in seeing better.
He applies his "favorite quote" by Robert F. Kennedy to his patients every day in surgery and in his offices:
