Marietta, GA |
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?
Cumming, GA |
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.
