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!

My back surgery went very smoothly and my pain was gone immediately.
