What People Say About Dr. Dakshesh Patel, MD

Dr. Patel is a truly terrible and unkind doctor. I looked at past reviews that were positive then he started getting negative ones this year; it seems this year he has greatly changed. He obviously doesn’t care about patients and did not become a doctor to actually help people. He made me feel like nothing but a nuisance and inconvenience. When I started to cry he told me “crying isn’t going to help him”. He’s not just a bad doctor, he’s a bad person.

I have seen Dr. Patel twice. In the first he concluded that I only had minor anxiety and shouldn't concern my self with alzeimers'. This was despite several previous neurological exams with neurologists, including MRI's and PET scans. The second visit was not long after the first and after I had a major problem related to alzeimer issues. Dr Patel also kept us waiting for an hour, and we could hear him chatting away. I have found him to be incompetent, arrogant, and rude
