Never takes more then 5 minutes. He prescribed me pills and they made me worse and when i told him he didnt take me off them and told me it was my fault because "i didnt take them right", but I did. He shouldn't be practicing. I refuse to go back to him.

Terrible excuse of a doctor. I have never spent more than five minutes in his office and when I first started going to him, I was on one medication. Now I am on three. He is so quick to write you a prescription and send you out the door. If you miss an appointment they refuse to refill your medications and as someone who is dependent on these medications to function in everyday life, it is devastating and unprofessional. If it was possible to give less than one star, I would.

I had been seeing another doctor for about 7 years prior to seeing Dr. Patel and was stable on the same medication. The first visit with Patel, he put me on an additional medication and upped the one I was already on. I've been seeing him for about 5 years now. Have never spent more than 5 mins in his office. I would switch doctors, but can't because of driving distance. Go elsewhere. Beware

Went to see him one time. He was rude, made no eye contact, didn't introduce himself, asked no questions related to mental well-being and prescribed medication based on who knows. My introduction visit went exactly like that also was 2 minutes. This guy shouldn't be practicing. Find someone half decent.

My oldest child was diagnosed with Autism and my other child was diagnosed with Bi-Polar from an office that does psychological assessments. When the report was given to Dr. Patel he refused to believe the diagnosis and claimed everything to be a behavioral issue. Also when the medications didn't work he would not change them or alter the dosage. The appointments never lasted more than 5 minutes, just long enough for him to reprint the medication.
