Seems annoyed with treating my 86 year old father who has dementia. Staff repeatedly ignores requests for services/orders from our home health agency. Takes no accountability for having patients wait for HOURS in a room.

Efficient and informative, even with a scheduling crunch. Took time to answer the specific questions I had about a potential medication change. Followed my suggestion of revisiting change in 6 mos.

Dr. Patel takes time analyzing presenting complains and doing examination which is the mainstay if reaching the diagnosis; I could tell he cared about the details and I feel comfortable even while awaiting for my analytical results.

I went to see Dr. Patel because i was diagnosed at American Family Care with a sinus infection. After 2 weeks i still felt bad so i went to Dr. Patel & he checked me for the flu & i tested positive. American Family Care didn't do any kind of testing & i appreciate Dr. Patel & hos staff recognizing something else was wrong. He & his staff are the best !!
