Had EMG at Elyria Hospital this am. Dr. Patel did not introduce himself to me or my husband. He did not explain procedure. He verbalized some unintelligible words during procedure He did not ask if I had concerns or questions. Patricia Peter MSN RN(ret)

Dr. Patel is very knowledgeable. I suffered for over 15yrs with a rare motor neuron disease. Saw about 5 different neurologists with no answer. I was referred to Dr. Patel in 2015 and within a couple months I had a diagnosis. I'm grateful to him and all he has done to try to improve the quality of my life.

He is wonderful! I was first diagnosed by the CC Mellen Center with MS. Then, other things started happening. My current doc dismissed it since it was not MS related. I switched to Dr. Patel and after putting me through multiple tests, he also diagnosed me with Narcolepsy and Seizure Disorder. He is very kind and compassionate. He explains everything. I recently spent 6 days in the hospital for a relapse (unable to walk). He came every day to see me, check my progress, and to encourage me.

Dr. Patel was patient, kind, knowledgeable, and caring. I saw him in the hospital for a possible neuro condition I went to the ER for and it turned out to be anxiety. He patiently explained how the brain works with anxiety states and how the testing showed that everything was negative for a neuro condition. He is an excellent Doctor who deserves better reviews than what he has received on this site. Dr. Patel is busy, He may not be "warm and fuzzy," but trust me, you want him on your case.

In 2015 my husband (Joe) had a stroke and spent 4 wks in rehab, he also has Dementia, Dr Patel came in every other day to see him and to find out how he was doing. Dr Patel talked to me about how the stroke affected Joe's memory and the areas in witch it was. Over all I liked that when we went in for a follow up Dr Patel remembered us. Thank you, Dr Patel and staff for caring not only for Joe but for me as well.

I would never recommend this physician to any of my family or friends. He does not listen at all. He is rude and always running late.

Love Dr Patel! He's courteous and reassuring. Highly recommend this great doctor but..... trying to get through on the phone is frustrating. The line is either busy or shut down for the day. You would think that they would enable a line to leave a message so the staff could get back to you. Very difficult when working full time and have limited access to personal calls during the work day.

Dr. Patel, himself, is WONDERFUL. BUT G-d help you if you need to schedule anything urgently. Or if you even need to get through to his office for a question or a prescription refill. Phone is CONSTANTLY busy (he's a great doc!) and the phone lines are shut down between 1130 and 2. Sometimes, it takes me 3 days to get through. And the office wait is typically very long (bring War and Peace). I am as yet undecided whether seeing this great doc is worth putting up with this crap. Staff unhelpful
