I have had a series of terrible experiences with Dr. Patel He and his office are awful time managers, and I have been made to wait well over an hour for routine (5-10 minute) appointments even when my appointment is the first on his schedule. I have brought the problem to his attention to no avail: he has persisted in subjecting me to exasperating waits without explanation. As a doctor he is only mediocre.

I have let four messages for Dr. Patel and have received zero response. He does not have a person who answers - always a machine. I need to contact him to get approval for a portable oxygen machine which is critical to my sister's well-being. She is his patient and is, unfortunately, able to advocate for herself. Dr. Patel's behavior is irresponsible, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable.

It is neither the Medical Services You Can Trust nor they are dedicated to provide the highest quality medical care, as claimed on their website. I am a new patient, and in all honesty their service and follow up is less than mediocre. And to say the least the front office personnel do not really care.
