Does not return calls. Very unprofessional. Find another surgeon.

I had ACDF surgery on 12/29/16 with Dr. Patel. From my pre-op appointments to surgery to now post op I cannot speak highly enough of Dr. Patel. I recovered much more quickly than expected and I owe that all to Dr. Patel. He has an excellent bedside manner, answers all questions and made sure I was comfortable with having surgery. He explained all options to me along with pros and cons of each. I cannot thank Dr. Patel enough for relieving my pain and getting me back on my feet quickly! Thank you

Dr. Patel is a very knowledgeable, caring and kind surgeon. He took the time to answer all my questions and was sure to check that I was comfortable with my care plan. He is a fantastic doctor and I would highly recommend him to my family and friends. I am so glad I went to him for a second opinion.

I had back pain for years. I went to a pain clinic and had epidural injections that eased part of the pain for a month or so. I went to see Dr. Patel and he explained what he saw in the MRI and what he could do to lessen the pain I had. There was no guarantee that the surgery would ease all of the pain I was experiencing. .I opted to have the surgery in August of 2014. My back pain is completely gone. Would I recommend Dr. Patel? You bet I would!

I have been in pain with spinal stenosis for almost two years. I was set to have a spinal fusion with another orthopedic surgeon, but I had a second opinion with Dr Patel. That was a good idea. He performed a lumbar laminectomy and I am now pain free since Dec 17, 2015. Everything Dr Patel said would happen did happen. Wish everyone could have this great experience and outcome. Highest recommendation!
