Staff doesn't answer the phone during business hours. I have been trying to get my medication filled for 2 days now. Got through twice yesterday and was told that they would call me back before closing but they never did. They told me that they close at 5 pm, so I called back and found out that they closed at 4:30! Very unprofessional. Avoid this office!

I consulted Dr. Patel in month of August for Epidural injection. I was given date for the procedure. I went on September 12th for my epidural. I was told by Dr.Patel to call him if anything comes up. After 7 days i called his office to let them know that i would like to talk to him. I was told that he is busy with patients. I left message for him to call me. I called again and I was told that he left for the day. I have left several messages within 3 days and no response. Totally careless..

Wonderful experience with a wonderful Doctor. Dr Patel was incredibly kind and compassionate. He spent time listening to me and answered all my questions. I've had chronic back and neck pain for years and have seen several pain doctors in the area and Dr Patel is the best by far. I am so glad I found Dr Patel.
