Went down for a "full body" scan which I paid cash for for two people. While finishing up the scan, I questioned when didn't I receive a full body scan. I was then told they only do from the pelvic up. When I spoke to the receptionist who scheduled my appointment, she had the audacity to yell at me saying she told me that when I scheduled the appointment. That is NOT true, otherwise I wouldn't have driven 90 miles for a half body scan when we wanted a full body scan a they advertise. false advertisement and liar. AN D RUSHED THROUGH VISIT.

Fantastic DR UNTIL he was NOT. Accused me of being rude after paying the 110$ bill (WHICH I STILL PAID) for the 1 minute phone call for RX refill last month due to covid. He did not tell me he had planned to charge me that amount until this month. When I complained , he out right hung up on me. His receptionist did so as well. Told me to go find someone else. I expected FAR FAR BETTER from this man.

Dr. Patel has always been there for me. He's a good doctor and has a competent efficient staff. I like that his office is so close for me. If it wasn't for Dr. Patel - I doubt that I'd feel as confident that I could get such good medical attention and care when I needed it.
