Dr. Patel is a kind, compassionate, experienced ENT professional who performed my sinuplasty and removed my turbinate bones all in one office procedure earlier this year. My sinus issues have disappeared and my breathing quality is so much better! You can trust Dr. Patel and his dedicated nursing and office staff to help you.

I don't know if he is the greatest hear nose and throat doctor in the country, but in my book, he is taps! I had a chronic sinus infection for almost 6 months that could not be cured with any antibiotics. I was desperate, and asked my daughter to choose an ear nose and throat doctor for me and Joliet, Illinois. She was impressed with his medical background and education, so I chose Dr. Patel. He performed a sinuplasty a week ago, and two days afterward I had full sense of smell and taste.
