He was prompt, courteous & always explained each step of my daughters treatment. The medication was also expensive & not covered by insurance so they worked with us to find the most cost effective medication they could.

Dr. Patel is one of the nicest people I've ever met, and I've only had a couple of appointments with him. He has phenomenal bedside manner and you can tell he knows what he's talking about regarding dermatology.
