I would like to take a moment to share my experience with Dr. Patel. In the last 25 years of seeing Doctors I never felt like I was Beijing heard, until finding Dr. Patel. Not only does he show a genuine interest in my care and well being, he always takes the time to be thorough and give an excellent evaluation.

Dr Patel has been my PCP for about 8 years. He's a great physician but at times the wait time can be over an hour or more. On my last appointment, the staff said they're working on a new system that if they see that he's backed up, they will call or text you about the delay and give you a choice whether to come in at a later time or reschedule. I think they finally realized that patient's time is just as valuable. It's good to see the improvement.

Does not keep to a a point mentioned times. Leaves patients who can't be around sick people sitting in a waiting room for over 1 hour past appointment time. Very unexceptable caring staff. Cancer patients can not be put in a room full of sick people. Apparently they don't care at all. We see other specialist doctor's and don't even wait 5 minutes in a waiting room.

I have been coming to Dr Patel since 2009, I agree he now comes in and looks at computer whole time. Not sure if he listens, but he does. It seems like all doctors are forced to look at computer and not at patients anymore.

Dr. Patel doesn't look at his patient portal very often, so getting RX refills is a lengthy process. He takes a week to 2 weeks to even answer. When you call his office, they give you the run around and you wait some more. If you try to call the office to find out why the Dr isn't responding, they tell you they don't know and it seems as they could care less. It feels like you're cattle moving through. Would NOT recommend at all!
