I have to say that Dr. Patel Saved my grandfathers life. Along with another dr they were able to find a solution for him which was called an embolization and for that I’m grateful! My grandfather would not be here if it weren’t for that procedure. I never got the chance to thank him in person or actually tell him that what he did made the family have the chance to have my grandfather around for a bit more. My grandpa continues to follow up with him. I been wanting to write this review before, just didn’t have the chance too. But anyway, Dr. Patel I hope you read this review and want you to know My family and I are grateful for you! THANK YOU!!!!!

My experience with Dr. Patel was excellent and I would highly recommend him. He took the time to explain what was going on with me and what options I had. Unlike some doctors, he treated me with respect and was not condescending (a not-uncommon experience for many of us women).

I don't understand why Dr. Patel is rated under 3 stars. He spent an ample amount of time discussing my condition with me and my wife. He is a very knowledgeable doctor. Very kind, patient and explained everything thoroughly and answered every question that we had. The office staff was very pleasant also and I had minimal wait time. I would recommend Dr. Patel to family and friends.
