I have been a patient of Dr. Patel's for over 20 years. He listens and keeps it real. He has taught me vital coping skills. If I'm wrong, he'll call me out and helps me understand what triggers me to act in a way that is counterproductive to my mental health. He's good in identifying what medication works best for me. I have full trust in him.

I will say it plainly--Dr. Patel is not kind to his patients or their caretakers. I have an autistic brother who was his patient. I say "was" because we are immediately finding another psychiatrist. Dr. Patel made a mistake in my writing one of my brother's prescriptions, and the wrong dosage of that prescription had a negative effect on my brother's diabetes. When Dr. Patel was told about his mistake, he yelled at his nurses and said that my brother was "a waste of Medicaid."

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.
