Chattanooga, TN |
Dr. Chirag Patel is very caring and a true Professional. He has excellent relationships with other Hepatology Dr's and is recognized at many of the best hospitals in the Southeast. He diagnosed my condition quickly and got me into an excellent hospital without delay, through his contacts. He kept in contact with the attending Dr.'s and Surgeons at the other hospitals to monitor my condition and stayed in constant contact with me. Can't say enough good things about this Medical Professional.

My husband and went in to his office scared. Although the diagnosis is not what we wanted he has never been anything but professional and helping. He is an amazing doctor in a world where it is hard to find a doctor with good bed side manners. He is AWESOME.

If you value your time, you will see some other than Dr Patel. Wait times are far FAR longer than the appointment time. Working people don't have time to wait 45 minutes + past their appointment time.

I was referred recently to Dr. Patel and stopped by the office to check out some scheduling. If his office staff is any reflection of his care I have serious concerns. They were extremely unhelpful and somewhat condescending. I asked my Doctor if there was anyone else of his specialty in Chattanooga and there is none. This is so sad for Chattanooga...and for patients like myself!

I would not recommend Dr. Patel, he does not take time with his patients. He and his office are not easy to get to when a patient has a question or concern. When you get a person in the office, you are address down by rude woman who does not answer the person questions. Dr. Patel does very little for his patient and his record are filled with errors to the point I question whether I received the correct treatment. He may be the only doctor of his specialty in Chatt., but not much of one.

Dr. Patel is great, he is very caring and informative with his patients. He takes the time to explain everything so you will know what to expect. I also think it's a plus that, unlike most Dr.'s, he also keeps up with the cost of the medicines he prescribes and tries to keep the cost down.
