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.
