Red Lion, PA |
Great Dr.. Had back surgery for herniated disc. Would definitely recommend this Dr. to family and friends, which I already have. I have had really no pain since surgery. He really did a great job. It wasn't all him though. The Lord is the great physician and he worked through Dr. Patel to bring healing to my body and get me back into the swing of things. Thanks Dr. Patel for taking care and performing to the best of your abilities.

Dr. Patel is the best Dr. I've had in my 74 years of life. He has excellent patient relations, a good ear, and great sense of humor, beyond his skills as a great physician.
in Hanover, PA |
Dr. Patel helped me through a time when pain in my low back was a 10. He performed a flawless surgery on a ruptured disc and also helped me with knee injections. Dr. Patel is kind, compassionate, caring and CAPABLE! I would not have anyone else do any surgery on me! He knows how to get things done the right way. If he isn't 100% sure - he asks colleagues. This is just one indicator of absolute strength. I am so grateful for the many hours he cared for me some years ago!!!
in York, PA |
Dr. Patel is an extraordinary physician! He is the remarkable combination of skilled physician and caring human being. I felt so safe and cared for during two surgeries, first a lumbar spinal nerve decompression and later a Xlif (extreme lateral interbody fusion). I was so grateful for his skilled surgical approach which gave me a faster recovery with minimal blood loss. I have already referred several friends to Dr. Patel!
in York, PA |
Words cannot express my satisfaction with Dr. Patel and his staff! Dr. Patel truly gave me my life back after a herniated disk L4/L5 pushed up against my sciatic nerve and caused horrific pain down my leg to my toes. After exhausting all non-surgical options, he performed a simple procedure to remove the portion of the disc pressing on my nerve. Best decision of my life as I am now pain free! He is a nice and pleasant man, kind person and absolutely wonderful physician.
York, PA |
Dr. Patel was able to get me on his schedule as I was suffering from a ruptured L5 which was causing constant pain from my sciatic throughout my leg. After a lengthy surgery, he removed the ruptured part of the disc and the sciatic pain was gone. Very small incision healed without issue. 3 months later, just had my last follow up visit and have had all restrictions removed. The quality of his work and his bedside manner is top notch, I would highly recommend him to anyone with back issues.

Dr. Patel offers excellent care and explanation along with a caring attitude. Takes questions in stride with understanding down to earth answers. Would readily use again. So far I am happy with my surgery outcome and progress!!!!! Would recommend 100%.

Dr. Patel takes great interest in your orthopedic problems. Has humor and a great personality. I have been to many orthopedic Dr's and he helped me with all my medical problems. I traveled 1 1/2 hours to York for his service and was worth every trip I made. He was recommended to me by another patient that he helped with his ortho problesm
in Mechanicsburg, PA |
Dr. Patel is an outstanding surgeon and very personable. He has performed 1 neck surgery and 1 back surgery on me and both turned out better than I could have imagined. He is very professional and very confident in what he dose. He is super friendly and explains things to you so that you can understand. I thank him with all my heart and highly recommend him to everyone. Thanks again Dr. Patel.

Cervical spine surgery-excellent care. Dr. Patel takes the time to both listen and explain. I would recommend Dr. Patel and his staff unequivocally. My family and I thank God for this man.
in Dover, PA |
I saw Dr. Patel for a second opinion and am very fortunate to do that. My previous orthopedic physician informed me that I had to live with my back and hip pain. (Dr. Nachtigall). That was unacceptable to me and after some procedures Dr. Patel said he certainly could do something to help me. Also my defect was not in the same area Dr. Nachtigall had been working on. After surgery he referred me to Dr. Etienne for hip surgery. I hold him in the highest esteem with his expertise and character.
in York, PA |
Dr. Patel is the best. He did a fusion on L-3/L-4 disc. I had a lot of lower back pain with unbearable pain in my right leg due to spinal canal narrowing and my nerves were being compressed. My surgery was on 10/3 & was released from his care on 12/27. I no longer have leg pain which is a huge plus! Each time I went back for a follow-up visit x-rays were taken to see my progression. I would refer Dr. Patel to anyone who has issues with there back. He's a great surgeon and a kind man.

Extremely knowledgeable, surgery was explained in detail, along with ALL possible results. My husband received what seemed to be the best possible care available and surgical recovery was 100%, with 4 upper discs removed and replaced. Each visit was pleasant and always ongoing honesty and forward looking. Both of us would absolutely recommend him to anyone having to deal with possible spine surgery.

Dr. Patel is an excellent doctor. He performed the latest procedure in back surgery upon me and did a phenomenal job! I was able to do quite a bit after only 2 weeks and after a total of 3 months anything I want! This is after I had already had 3 previous back surgeries, unbelievable! I can't recommend Dr. Patel enough. He is very knowledgeable in his field and his expertise is uncomparable!. Thank you so much Dr. Patel, you literally saved my life.

After many years of back and leg problems, my pain is gone. Dr Patel performed disk replacement surgery during the summer of 2015. Within 6 weeks I was able to swing the golf clubs again without pain. He and his staff answered all my concerns before and after surgery in a friendly and timely manner. Do I recommend Dr Patel to help solve your back problems, YOU BET.
in York, PA |
Dr. Patel was able to diagnose and fix an on going neck and shoulder problem that I have had for close to two years. I've seen many doctors for this problem recommending many different procedures and Dr. Patel was able to rule them out and fix my neck which fixed my shoulder, arm and hand. Days after the surgery the pain was totally gone, the burning gone and the numbess and tingling gone. This Dr is simply amazing. The staff was wonderful and friendly. I would recommend him to everyone
