Very good doctor.
in Gadsden, Alabama |
My father had open heart surgery and had to come to this doctor for special reasons. Patels assistant was so hateful and rude to him. Told him to shutup and that she would let him know when to talk. And my dad can't walk fast because he has a hurt foot and she was being rude about him not running doing a heart test. Would NEVER recommend him to anyone!!

The doctor never explained anything about my condition. I was always confused about what is going on. I was consistently getting a very good stress test results like 15 minutes of treadmill and reaching well over 150 bpm. I never felt anything wrong - exercising well and no symptoms at all. Just within few days of good stress test I was called in for a cath process and the doctor put a stent without any reason. I will not go to him again or recommend him to anybody.

I had 3 heart stents placed by Dr. Patel, thinking I was only having a heart cath test.. Dr. Patel ask me after I had been drugged for the test did I want open heart or stents--no other options were afforded or given me such as would I like to talk with my son and wife or would I like a second opinion. I would not recommend Dr. Patel to anyone unless you want no options for their condition whatever they may be.
