Patient Comments (12)
Snellville, GA |
This was once a great office with wonderful staff. It is now a terrible place with Dr's who have no bedside manners, and are actively hostile with patients. I used to bring both of my parents here, who both have some dementia and cognitive disorders. One of their more recent additions to the practice yelled at my mother even though I asked him to stop talking in the manner he was. He said that that was his normal way of talking with people. It's really sad, and I know that I will never recommend

This place is awesome! I made the switch Dr. Patel and have been very happy with decision! Very knowledgeable staff working with a wonderful doctor have made this a great place to go to. Both doctor and staff have top-notch bed side manners and shows you they truly care. Everyone treats you like you are part of the family during your visit and you feel right at home. They understand what you are going through and strive to make their patients quality of life better. Definitely a place to go!
in Griffin, GA |
Finding myself desperately in need of help, I reached out to Dr. Patel. He took the time to listen to my concerns, clearly explained our options, and wasted no time in implementation. If you're looking for a doctor who is knowledgeable, caring, and genuinely interested in improving your quality of life, I highly recommend Dr. Patel. You can expect to be treated with the upmost respect by both him and his staff. At Ga. Pain & Wellness, you're not just a patient, but you're part of the team.
in Cumming, GA |
When schedule an Appointment then Dr. Patel you have to understand that we take time off from work to come and see you. Don't think that we can make our own schedule. I was schedule for 8am, doors were not open until 8:06am. I filled out all the paperwork handed in and by 8:30 I asked the lady at front desk to let me know how much longer was I going to see you. 8 minutes later I was asked to come in, than I find out that you weren't coming until 15 to 20 minutes later. Very unprofessional.
in Atlanta, GA |

Great Doctor
Dacula,GA |
Very kind and understanding to my needs. Took the time to LISTEN to me, not rush to get to the next person. I was not a number in this office. I was treated with compassion and respect from start to finish.
in Lawrenceville, GA |
Its not just about being proficient in giving pain relieving injections, but its about knowing where to give the injection that matters the most. Injection can alleviate discomfort as well as enhance discomfort., Dr. Patel is absolutely unequivocally one of the best pain docs in this industry. Hes smart, very smart. he listens and then within minutes after asking you a few questions he knows exactly the road hes going to take. He will explain it to you then he proceeds. Best for injections
