One of the most compassionate doctors I have ever had. I was diagnosed with lung cancer and my oncologist sent me to Dr. Patel. He took over an hour for the first visit explaining the care and treatment process. I had my lung removed with 3 small incisions and was home the next day. Dr. Patel personally called me to ask how I was recovering when I was at home--I don't think anyone has ever done that. He is very personable and I trust him with my life. Thank you Dr. Patel.

Dr. Patel was amazing! He sat down with my family and I and explained his plan. He took time to answer all of our questions. His knowledge and compassion for the medical field was truly inspiring.

My primary doctor Rodrigues had referred me to Dr. Patel regarding a nodule on my right lower lung. Dr. Patel was very professional and answered all my questions and made some recommendations . I think Dr. Patel is a very pleasant doctor has no problem with smilingI also felt very comfortable talking to Dr. Patel regarding my current health condition ... I would definitely recommend Dr. Patel with the highest regards

This is perhaps the worst experience I've ever had with a Doctor. This guy threatened me to get me to do an unnecessary procedure and then after the Chandler Regional Medical Center told me that I shouldn't do the procedure they threatened me again and then started billing me for "consultations" that never occurred.
