I lost my 22 year old son to a motorcycle accident on September 13th, 2015. I have always suffered from depression and anxiety, but when this tragedy happened, I became severely depressed and could not even function normally. Dr. Patel was recommended to me by a friend. I called and scheduled an appointment. I met with Dr. Patel, He actually cried with me when I told him about me losing my son and was very compassionate and told me I could call him anytime. He was a tremendous help to me.

He had asked me why I was there, which is really weird considering he was the one who scheduled me. He randomly prescribed me medication and didn't explain why I needed it. The waiting room is really old and dated, there are cracks in the walls and furniture. I have waited for over an hour before and I've heard from multiple other people that they have waited HOURS to see him. He said He's the best psychiatrist in Columbus and I wouldn't be able to find another doctor like him.

I had went on vacation to help my mother in law/give her some emotion support. Her husband was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. I drove 11 hours with 3 young kids and once I came home I discovered that I somehow lost my ADHD medication Adderall which I've been on for 4 years and. I called asking Dr patel if he could refill my medication being that I was only 30 days short,I've never done this before. He told me it was my fault and nothing he could do and hung up the phone on me .. Horrible Dr!!

They overbook every appt. The 1st one is for 9am, but he doesnt even arrive till 10am. So you sit 2-3 hrs waiting every time. The staff is totally rude, and the office is trashy. He is a good Dr. but he clearly does not invest in his office.
Appt was set up 4 months in advance. Was there 30 mins early and still wasn't seen for 3 hours after appt time. Office staff is rude and said it is what it is well appointments are used so you don't wait hours
