Thyroid eyes are so bad: I had to learn to be patient. I was getting frustrated by now I know why Dr. Patel made me wait until the time was right. He did a beautiful job. I almost look like I did before, and in some ways better! My husband tells me Dr. Patel has made me more patient!

Dr. Scholand cares about her patients. On more than one occasion she has taken the time to phone just to see how I am doing. Never had that happen before.

Review for Dr. Scholand

Extraordinarly good. Dr. Taussky radiates both humanity and professionalism, and I emerged from his care restored and happy. From my experience then and since, I wholeheartedly recommend him as a neurosurgeon.

Dr. Bowen treated me over a decade ago for a very rare type of mycosis fungoides. As far as I am concerned, he participated in a miracle, because I have had no reoccurrence since he treated me. He is very knowledgable, gentle, caring, and insightful. I recommend him highly.

Dr. Nance is very kind, patient and respectful. Part of my treatment plan involves something more common with cancer patients I believe, but with my condition has proven very beneficial to me also. It has made a remarkable difference in my quality of life.

Got my botched face surgery fixed by the Patel team at the University of Utah. Diana and Abraham were wonderful. Took me 7 years to finally find a surgeon who knew how to fix me. Worth the long drive.

The difference in my face is more than I expected (in a good way). The bad: some swelling took longer to settle than I expected and the laser area pinkness settles more slowly than I thought. But the results are wonderful. Great team at the surgical center

Review for Dr. Hadley

I have an appointment to get surgery on my eye lids so that I can see better. I understand that after the surgery, your eyes will be bruised for up to two months. Also, your eyes will be blurry for a long time. I wonder if I can get some feedback from people having this procedure done.

My surgery went very well but I had a wait in the clinic which is why I did not give five stars. Dr. Patel is very good but I think that is why he is busy and you may have to wait to see him. I am naturally impatient!

J. T. Mar 06 2020

Review for Dr. Patel

I had my upper eyelids "fixed" by Dr. Patel after a botched job where my lids were uneven and the lines were off. He did a great job. Glad I was sent to him: made the 8-hour drive from Montana worth it!
