Review for Dr. Patel

Dr. Lin has treated my elderly mother with compassion, was kind when giving a difficult prognosis, and offered to assist with further issues, i.e. hospice referral. His entire staff was helpful, friendly, and kind and caring with my fragile mother.

Dr. Cole is an excellent orthopedic surgeon. He replaced my right knee so perfectly I was up and walking the next day with almost no pain. He was also very relatable and compassionate. I would recommend him highly.
