Patient Comments (69)

I love the way Dr. Patel spends the time explaining every condition, procedure and step that pertains to my mom's sleep disorder. He always has enough time and thoughtfulness to shake our hands, take his time with mom, and explain things in a simple manner in which I can understand for my mother. He seems to look forward to helping us and seeing us each time we have an appointment. I would not trade him for any other Pulmonologist, and that's a fact. Thank you Doc, you truly care.

At first, I didn't think I had made the right decision, choosing him as a provider. After a couple of visits, I understood that he likes to make sure the patient is aware of their health situation and not being proactive with the treatment plan that he develops. Dr. Patel is very knowledgeable of his specialty and is very honest about his plans. I wasn't used to that, but I can appreciate it in the long run. With that being said, I would recommend Dr. Patel to other family and friends.
