I lost my whole lower eyelid and I had no idea how Dr. Patel would be able to make me a new one. Well he did!! My friends can't even tell that this is a lid "made by Patel" because it looks so great. I am glad my doctor in Idaho sent me to this great doctor at the Moran Clinic.

In the beginning I thought one side would be different from the other but my family reminded me what you had said. I am glad I waited before calling you because now I look beautiful! I remember what you told me and my family: "be patient and trust me". Well, we do!!

I had never heard of this hammock lift but after reading about it and having Dr. Patel do it for me, I am very happy. Next I am going to have him fix my jowls and neck! Thank you to Dr Patel and his excellent team, especially Michelle.

My family will always be grateful to you Dr. Patel. Thomas loves you and he was crying on the way home because he won't get to see you any more. He said he is going to make a drawing to send to you. Thank you very much for being so kind to him. And fixing him!

After four operations in Idaho and Oregon, I am happy that I saw Dr. Patel. He told me the advantages and problems that can arise with the jones tube but mine has worked wonderfully. I don't know how I could have carried on without this. Dr. Fornoratto was right! Dr. Patel is THE MAN! Dr. Patel: please don't go anywhere. I don't know what I would do.

I had no insurance and a problem which had been there for some time but needed fixing. I tried to get on Medicaid but I earned too much and private insurances were too expensive. After being told unbelievable costs by three doctors, somebody I met at church told me to see Dr. Patel. He helped me fix my problem and did his surgery at no charge because it was preventing me from working. God bless you Dr. Patel. I wish there were more doctors like you in the world.

Chronic ongoing complications of Grave's Disease. The visit report in patient portal listed NO complications, NO pain, and zero problems with eye movement. It was as if I didn't even go to the appointment. I did in fact report terrible pain, I have increased bulging of eye- per his own words, and restricted eye movement. I complained I had vision problems as well as terrible pain in the other eye and he said it was "your other eye is of no concern to me." Wow. Must have missed Bedside Manner 101. His standard arrogance and superior air finally broke the camel's back. I pay for the services I receive. If he can't treat other eye, he could at least feign interest and suggest I see someone else. I'll take a little compassion and a LOT of professionalism. I'm DONE.

I have thanked Dr. Fornoratto for telling me to see "this doctor I know in Salt Lake City who will give you the correct answers". That would be Dr. BCK Patel MD of the university of utah. His clinic staff are wonderful. I remember Diana and Abraham and Jill was so thorough. I have written to the University to tell them what a great team this is.

My droopy lids had been bothering me for many years. Dr. Graf asked me to see Dr. Patel. His team at the Surgical Center is wonderful. I am very happy.
