I am a patient of Dr Dhruval Patel. I found him very good physician for my all kidney health related issues. He is very easy to approach, pay well attention to patients queries and cure patients with compassion and care.I would definitely recommend him for patients having nephrology disease.
Middletown, DE |
Very rude and inconsiderate. He does not care about his patients and doesn't address his patients questions.
in Bear, Delaware |
Considerate, concerned, listens to my concerns and acts on them. Staff is also pleasant
Newark, DE |
I had Afib 4 years ago for no reason my cardiologist could figure out and he was happy to keep me on nasty drugs to treat my condition. Then I was in the hospital for an intestinal bug and they gave me a full cat scan and found a tumor on my adrenal gland. Dr Patel was the only Dr at Christiana Hosp. to look into the fact that the tumor was causing me to dump all my potassium etc. into my urine thus causing my Afib!!!!!!!!!! I am back to normal, no drugs, no Afib. Thank you Dr Patel. Great Dr!

My mother has been a patient of Dr. Patel since 2014. He is knowledgeable, he explains things, and because of him my Mom is alive. He is a doctor who listens to the patient and the family. I find him to be a very caring doctor - his patients he truly does care about.
