    Dr. Patel is incredibly knowledgeable and did an excellent job educating our family in preparation for our daughter’s surgery. Her surgery was successful thanks to Dr. Patel. She truly took the time to ensure our questions were answered and that we were feeling comfortable. I would highly recommend Dr. Patel if anyone is in need of a pediatric neurosurgeon.
