Fell into irreversible sleep on Friday, October 7, 2022, so peacefully at home.

He was born into a modest family in Jaipur, Rajasthan, India, later his family moved to Udaipur, a city of lakes and palaces that he loved most. He obtained his M.B.B.S. and M.D. (Medicine) degrees from Ravindra Nath Tagore Medical College Udaipur followed by D.M. in Neurology from G. B. Pant, New Delhi, and worked as an Assistant Professor at PGIMER Chandigarh for 2 years.

He left PGIMER and moved to the U.S. in 1995 to pursue Internal Medicine at New York Methodist Hospital and subsequently did Neurology Fellowship at Virginia Commonwealth University. In 2000, Dr. Parihar moved to Dublin, Georgia, and worked as an internist until 2005, when he relocated to Warner Robins to follow his genuine passion for Neurology. He set up Premier Neurology with the purpose of offering professional, compassionate care to the middle Georgia community.

He was ever pursued as the best family physician, an amazing neurologist, and a person recognized as the “Doctor with the hat.” He had a unique way to greet his patient in the waiting room. Dr. Parihar had a deep interest in spirituality and yoga, and enjoyed playing golf for hours and running marathons. A singer par excellence very fond of Mohmand Rafi, many of his friends received his last recording of Sachin Da’s song “Wahan Kaun Hai Tera Musafir…” “Hey traveler, hold on for a moment, where will you go? Whom do you have there, those days and moments have passed, whom do you call your dear one.”

He lost his mother, Mohan Bai, in May 2021. Dr. Parihar is survived by his father Mr. Gopi Krishna Parihar and three brothers Amar, Mahavir, and Balwant. Dr. Prem Singh’s presence will be greatly missed, rest in peace friend.
