Dr. Patel has been treating my Bladder Cancer since it metastasized almost four years ago with radiation and chemotherapy. Thankfully it has now been in remission for over three years. She got me through an aggressive treatment plan and I am now as fit as ever playing softball and training for a 5K at the age of 72. She is honest straight, forward and caring.

Dr. Patel and her team have treated our daughter for the past 5 1/2 years. She is cured! We were blessed to have had Dr. Patel lead this journey. Her unmatched professionalism, dedication, bedside manners and compassion inspired us all, specially our daughter who was 19 when diagnosed. That inspiration led her to define herself by her success and not by her decease. No question we asked was trivial and no concern was unrealistic. Her dedicated team of nurses truly love what they do and that always comes through in the way the patient is treated. A sick child will always be a parent's worst nightmare but medical and compassionate competence can turn this nightmare into a journey. That is exactly what Dr. Patel and her team did.

Dr. Patel is very knowledgeable about the most current treatment protocols in treating blood cancers. She was recommended to me by a friend under her care at the time, and I immediately was impressed with her knowledge. She was very honest about my condition, but also very positive and helped us make choices and decisions along the way. She worked well with Johns Hopkins Cancer Center, where I also received treatment.

At 1st I thought personable, knowledgeable, good at explaining. She misdiagnosed a common lymphoma-related problem. It was easily avoidable if she'd used basic testing procedures that every place else does. There's a sloppiness maybe from being too busy, but she even has the wrong lymphoma subtype in her clinic office notes. Staff gave incorrect dose once. At first she was upbeat. Later I had good test results & she focused on it definitely coming back quickly, even thou don't know when/if will. Her staff dismissed other good results as probably clerical error. There was rarely upbeat reaction to little milestones from staff. She gives lots of good info & explanations, but with inaccuracies mixed in. So I wasn't able to trust anything. Treatments were correct. Maybe good for standard cases? A plus, you're assigned a nurse guide The office overall focuses on being on time, over compassion or genuine warmth. They are reasonably on time. There are glitches (ex: emerg phone not working)

My Exparience was really bad from start to finish. If i had stayed with her i may not be here to write this. You cant go by all these reviews you read. Dr Patel does not care about giving you quality of life while under chemo.

My mom was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma and we as family were so scared. The best decision we ever made was to entrust her care to Doctor Patel and her team. Doctor Patel adds a personal touch not only to the person who is being treated but to every family member giving care. She is smart and very actively involved in every decision she makes which is in the best interest of the best. I could have not asked for a better provider than Doctor Dipti Patel for my mom . Thank you again for all you do Dr Patel

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!!
