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.
