My daughter and I love Dr. Patel. He is thorough in his exams and explanations. Also, he pointed out what to look for and consider after my daughter was diagnosed with Celiac disease.

This was our second visit to Dr. Patel over a span of 8 years. Each visit Dr. Patel took the time to sit and talk to my son about his pains. He was very thorough and attentive and has helped to resolve the problem with care. I would highly recommend Dr. Dinesh Patel.

We had 2 appointments with Dr. Patel. The first appointment, was quick and he diagnosed my daughter with constipation from an xray on file from CHOA. He did not ask questions, nor examine my daughter. During our second visit, Dr. Patel did not listen to our concerns. He was rushed and judgmental. Within minutes, he was more concerned about referring us back to the pediatrician and to a therapist, than he was trying to help us in any way. I asked that he please help us, and he ordered a CT scan. His nurse called to say that the CT scan showed nothing and to follow up with the pediatrician. Both the therapist and the pediatrician said that my daughter needed medical attention from a GI. The final straw was that I recently read the CT scan results on MyChart, and saw that there were several identified concerns, and a recommendation for an MRE. I've wasted a month trying to find help for my daughter, but am now glad to have another doctor who cares and listens!

My son has been seeing Dr. Patel for about 6 months, now. Dr.Patel has always been very attentive, listens to the concerns, explains the diagnosis as well as the treatment plan in as much detail as you need and is over all very personable. He speaks to my son (6yo) directly and asks him questions about how he feels and what steps we need to make to make him feel better. One of the best doctors/specialists we’ve ever seen.

He is very caring to my children, always willing to assist with their medical needs. The staff are also very nice and helpful. You may want to try him out if you are looking for a good GI doctor. You will not regret it. Thank you Dr Patel, you rock.

My son had his 1st visit with Dr. Patel today and I felt like he listened and explained his treatment plan very well to me and my son. He doesn't seem to be very aggressive as far as ordering scopes right off (which I appreciate) however he did order blood work and gave me some great tips to help with my son's condition as well as medications. I would highly recommend him to friends and family.

Dr. Patel is very knowledgeable and thorough. I feel he basically saved my son's life when he was an infant. However, my most recent experience was negative. Dr. Patel did not even greet me and proceeded to criticize me in front of my son and then brought up a very petty matter: Almost 2 years ago, I had called the office for a question that had been written on the notes they gave me. He chose to bring this to my attention and not sure why? Was he irritated that I wasted the staff's time?

Worst experience ever from a doctor, much less a pediatric doctor. This doctor was rude and disrespectful to us. He did nothing to diagnose my child. He acted like there was nothing wrong with my child, and he was wrong. We got to a new doctor and found out our child has a genetic enzyme disorder. Our child suffered due to this doctor's ignorance and arrogance.
