Dr. Patel was really nice and funny. He's the firs doctor to make my pain go away. I saw him Monday . I haven't felt this fid in a long time. The staff is really friendly to. If I need help with my pain I'll be back!

Great Doctor
in Dunwoody, GA |
I'm shocked at these reviews.The only time you even talk to him/see him, is if you are having an epidural. When that is happens, if you say anything, your pill count decreases. The nurse takes over conversating with Dr.tells him the wrong thing always. Every time he does a procedure on me, I am 7x worse then I was when I went in. I am in more pain seeing him then any other doctor.. Less meds, more pain. he is pill management, not pain management. I have no life/marriage/cannot function.HORRIBLE

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.

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
