pandas python

In Pandas, whats the equivalent of ‘nrows’ from read_csv() to be used in read_excel()?

Want to import only certain range of data from an excel spreadsheet (.xlsm format as it has macros) into a pandas dataframe.
Was doing it this way:

data    = pd.read_excel(filepath, header=0,  skiprows=4, nrows= 20, parse_cols = "A:D")

But it seems that nrows works only with read_csv() ?
What would be the equivalent for read_excel()?
