I was very appreciative of getting an appointment so quickly after being referred by my oncologist. Dr. A. Patil settled my feelings of concern regarding diagnosis and upcoming procedures. Procedures were scheduled very quickly and this helped to lessen my feelings of anxiety. I left office at end of consultation feeling confident that I was in good hands.

My experience with Dr Patil was incredible. He spent a lot of time with me discussing my symptoms. He was patient and empathetic. I didn’t feel rushed or that he was one of those docs who gives you 30 seconds and runs out of the exam room. He performed my endoscopy and colonoscopy and it was as great of an experience as those tests can be (haha). He encouraged me to talk to a dietician to see if we could treat my illness naturally through dietary changes. The office was efficient and answered my many questions around the procedures with patience and a smile. Overall a great doc and office.

One of the worse physicians I have encountered in my life. No one told me he only did endoscopic procedures either. He told me I had IBS which I have known since in my twenties! Duh! Prescribed an antidepressant? Are you kidding me!

This office is the worst! I took my grandson there due to liver enzymes being high. He ordered a serious of tests, all were negative, he has terrible bedside manner and didn't give a care to how my grandson was feeling or his puking or his diarrhea. The P.A. is terrible, she said well your family dr can do bloodwork for his liver enzymes.....Duh....I was there to figure it out...Back to the famiy dr who does care!!!!!

Condescending, rude, arrogant. Spent less than 1-2 minutes in room, couldnt wait to leave, both times I've seen him. Tried to discuss results of testing and my problem, he said to ask my other doctor and walked out. Worst experience I've ever had with a guy with medical degree. Complete Disrespectful jerk.

This physician will tell you he is "ONLY an endoscopic physician, and if interested in treatment for IBD, or anything else, should look elsewhere!" Wish I would have known this prior to seeing this doctor. He never once put a hand on me to examine me in 4 exams, and was always in a hurry to leave the room. He is interested ONLY in doing his colonoscopies. Anything more complicated is beyond his scope of practice, and I would suggest you look to elsewhere. Does not listen to his patient.

I had a large pancreatic pseudo cyst that Dr. Patil explained and performed an endoscopic ultrasound to place a stent for drainage in the most non invasive procedure possible without any complications. An overall awesome experience! Chronic pancreatitis was scary to me, but he put my mind at ease.

Dr. Patil and the full team at the Endoscopy Center at St. Anthony's was very pleasant, knowledgeable and explained my procedure thoroughly. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised with the care that I received. Will recommend this doctor and medical facility to friends and family.

Satisfied with treatment, having had previous testing & reports with me @ time of first visit. All items reviewed, tests ordered, done in a timely manner, Dr. Patil was gentle, explained all to me before & after procedure. No complaints from me on this Dr. I have worked with several Doctors & generally have a decent sense of how they are with their patients. I felt secure with the treatment I received. My PCP has voiced no complaints with the treatment or outcome. Thank you Dr. Patil.

I went seeking a second opinion, met Dr. Patil and I was extremely disappointed. He was arrogant, impulsive, inconsiderate, lack compassionate and quick to diagnose without examination. Unfortunately, he's taken the Hippocratic Oath because he's not practicing it. I had great expectations after hearing great things about this practice, I was so DISAPPOINTED and confused, I have an extensive medical history that wasn't considered. In my best opinion, I wouldn't allow him to clip my toenails

Without doing any exam at all and based on no evidence, he announced that was clearly gallbladder pain to other doctors was undoubtedly colon cancer. He said colon cancer or cancer six times in about three minutes. Subsequent colonoscopy showed no cancer. Four months later my gallbladder was removed with immediate relief of all symptoms. That surgery was spectacularly successful. The smartest thing I ever did was flee this doctor and never return.
