He is a member of several professional organizations, including the American Society of Therapeutic Radiology & Radiation Oncology (ASTRO), American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), and Radiologic Society of North America (RSNA).
His clinical research interests focus on the integration of patient reported outcomes to improve cancer care delivery and the health-related quality of life in cancer patients. Also, his interests are to optimize the use of image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT), intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), stereotactic radiotherapy (SRT), and stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) in the management of his cancer patients.
Dr. Parikh also specializes in the use of Proton Beam Therapy to treat tumors that are difficult to treat with traditional forms of radiation. He, along with other radiation oncologists from the New York Proton Consortium, treats select patients with proton beam therapy at our dedicated Proton Therapy site. He works in close collaboration with his colleagues in the radiation oncology department and throughout the cancer center to identify patients who might benefit from proton therapy. He strives to provide state-of the-art treatment while working closely with his patients to provide quality care.
