Dr. Patel is an amazing doctor. He took me on as a patient when nobody wanted to help me due to the difficulty of the procedure needed. He placed 2 stents in an area that was butchered from a spinal fusion. He has changed my life and I will be forever grateful to him. THANK YOU DR. PATEL

Dr. Maiman did Four surgerIes on my back about 20 years ago. I don’t know if he screwed up or his residents screwed up. I have severe back pain and had trouble regulating my blood pressure after surgery. He seemed nice enough but once surgery was done, he had no use or help for me!
