Explains treatment recommendations clearly. Takes the time to answer my annoyingly long list of questions.
Olathe, KS |
I have been to the office 4 times and seen Dr. Patel twice. The other times I was seen by a nurse named Vadsana. Vadsana's bedside manor is poor. She rushes though the exam so fast that I only was able to tell her half my problems. When she went to explain what she thinks the problem is I didn't understand what she said. The first visit it appeared that Vadsana was in charge and Dr. Patel was just observing. The second time I saw Dr. Patel he seemed nice in the 10 mins he was there.
