What People Say About Dr. Dipak Patel, DO
Reply
He is not a rheumatology specialist. Not what he specialized in as an intern or even a resident. Works a lot of different jobs & at each one claims to be a certain type of doctor. He is dismissive of patients and if you have state insurance, you will be treated as cheaply as possible so as to save money for the state. Will not test you for anything. I had a disease & he would not test. Several years later I was tested & it was positive. I would not see him if you care about your health.

Spent very little time examining me, did not take my pain seriously, made a comment, well I see you don't have a history of getting pain meds. That makes me feel like he looks at all of his patients as junkie. He scheduled no tests and after a second trip to the hospital I was diagnosed with a serious issue with my spine. I feel like he didnt take my problem seriously.
