Dr. Patel is one of the best people you will ever meet. Humble and selfless. He cares about his patients and treats us as if we are family. Nowadays it is hard to come by a doctor that really listens to you and cares about your OVERALL well-being. He builds meaningful relationships with his patients and doesn't treat you like a number. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone. Dr. Patel's staff is also very friendly and welcoming, and we have established a great relationship with them over the years.
