After my motorcycle accident both hands/wrists destroyed, but Doc put me back together. I'm forever grateful he was my ER surgeon who continues to get me both hands back. Great staff as well.

At the beginning of 2021 I met Dr. Patel as I had broke my right wrist on Christmas Day. Dr. Patel explained I needed surgery, which we scheduled. It ended up the break was worse than first seen in the ex-rays. He implanted 3 cages on the breaks. The care he gave after surgery, was always thorough, caring and instructive as to next steps. From Dr. Patel to EVERY staff member, including the ex-ray technicians in the office, I would have to say that this is the best doctor and staff I have ever encountered. Everyone was so nice, caring, knew each patient by name and it was not an act it was genuine! I would recommend Dr. Patel to anyone without hesitation.

I saw Dr. Patel the first time when I broke my shoulder and was hospitalized. Initially he planned to do surgery after a few days rest but after reviewing Cat scan recommended rest, pt and conservative treatment. I was hesitant but he reassured me he would treat his mother or sister the same way. I followed his plan of care and did very well, actually completing therapy weeks ahead of schedule. Appreciated surgeon who was willing to try other therapy before surgery. Have continued to see him for hand issues the past year. He is compassionate, listens very well and is always pleasant. I look forward to having him as my physician for any new problems. Not difficult to schedule appointments and have always been treated by a friendly staff.

Excellent experience from the front office staff to Dr. Patel's PA and assistants. Personable and efficient on every level of care. I never experienced a wait to be seen and was given ample time during my appointment to ask questions and review procedures. Dr. Patel is an amazing physician and completely fixed a recurring joint problem I'd had for years. This was the 3rd surgery (the first with Dr. Patel) I had on my wrist and I am SO happy with the results. I highly recommend this orthopedic practice!!!

Everyone in this office deserves a big thank you! Dr Patel and his staff introduce themselves individually. Each one explained what they were going to do, answered questions and showed general concern for my daughter. They are the most caring office who seem to enjoy what they do and appointments were always on schedule. I recommend Dr Patel and his staff deserve an A+++++++++

Dr.Patel is an AMAZING surgeon, his office staff are absolutely perfect. From beginning to end; the process was very easy. I have poor insurance and his staff was able to help with me with options to make my surgery a possibility. For that, I’m forever grateful. His tech Rafa is 5+ stars , always helps and answers all my crazy questions. They have really gone above and beyond with patient care and bedside manner. This is the place to come to for honest orthopedic opinion. I would recommend him over anyone, any day, any time. Dr.Patel is a good person and actually cares about his patients.

Dr Patel is the real deal. The kind of Doctor we are all looking for but hesitant that we will find. My husband and I chose him after reviewing several Doctors online. I had been referred to other Doctors for my hands by general MD's, and two other Doctors didn't give me the time of day. I was sick of 'referrals' so took to my own devices and researched an reviewed. Each time I kept coming back to Dr Patel and researching him online. Dr Patel took me seriously and didn't make me feel like I was
