Dr. Patel is currently treating my husband for brain cancer. We have found her to be very personable and caring. She thoroughly explained everything at our first appointment. She carefully monitors his care and blood test results weekly. Her office seems very well run and organized. They make it easy to coordinate appointments between her office and the radiologist's which is at a different location, but part of the same practice. They have their own lab, pharmacy, and infusion center which is very convenient. The nurse navigator is very easy to communicate with and responds quickly to all questions. All of the staff is very pleasant. We are very pleased with Dr. Patel and feel that she is an excellent oncologist. She was very highly recommended by my husband's surgeon.

Dr. Patel is wonderful and caring. She answers all my questions and I never feel rushed or that she doesn’t have the time. She is AMAZING! I cannot say enough wonderful things about her. Dr. Patel was highly recommended from my gastroenterologist and she (as usual) was right. The office itself is very clean and welcoming. Everyone is very kind and phlebotomists are great!!

I couldn't ask for a more caring, thorough, understanding, likable, friendly physician. The fears just simply lessened the minute she introduce herself. Even my husband likes her, that says a lot.

My has Follicular Lymphoma. Dr. Patel and her staff made us very comfortable. She explained our treatment options in simple terms, described how they would take affect and gave us realistic expectations. While my mother has been under the care of Dr. Patel I have known she was in great hands. She has been an excellent and is very thorough with her medical advice. Dr Patel is an exceptional oncologist and I hope she knows how much her patients and their families value her expertise and care.

Dr Patel is a knowledgeable and caring oncologist, her office staff is amazing (friendly and compassionate). As a patient I was very impressed with her level of expertise and caring personality. By the time I completed my six cycles of chemo, my family and I were all very impressed with her care. She always took time to explain things in a way we all understood.

While a very nice person, I had a very unique situation with Hodgkin's Lymphoma relapsed after 13 years... she said she had staffed with Dana Farber and UVA and aBMT was recommended. Then, three weeks later refused me entrance to her program at Fairfax. I consulted with John's Hopkins and found that they not only advised against BMT, but advised against the type of BMTs she is performing... the Dr at JH showed me her notes which did not reflect exactly what she told me...
