I have seen Dr. Patel for 8 years and he has literally saved my life.

He's been my doctor for two years now. He only sees adults from what I hear but I'm a child and he sees me as a favor to my family. He's kind hearts and always listens and if you don't agree with one pill and don't like it he will tell you another that will do some of the same work to help.
