Dr. Patel was terrific and I highly recommend her. She is very competent while still being warm, funny and easy going. I am so glad I found her.
Richmond, TX |
We see Dr. Hema Patel now and we like her and her partner Dr. Ramasamy, but we just cannot stand the office policies, the insanely ridiculous wait times (with an appointment) and the uncaring, jaded, rude office staff any longer. They never take appointments on time or even remotely close to the appointment times. The staff are rude and unhelpful, and quite honestly, spiteful.

Best Doctor I have ever seen. Not a fan of the receptionist, but Dr. Patel is an amazing Doctor. She cares enough to call personally and even helps you understand what's happening to you. I see myself going to her for a long time.
Houston, TX |
This was my first visit with her. Im having pain on left side. I bring my labs and test done so far. To help narrow down the problem. She looks at the results & says so since these test are negative what's your next step or plan. As if thats not the reason I came to see her the DOCTOR. Second after reading the results she says well if all the other doctors are telling you this then that's your issue. When NONE of my reports or labs even has a diagnoses. She NEVER looked at the area of pain
in Houston, TX |
Pathetic person as receptionist. I called in 4 times and every time she put me on hold without even asking why was I calling. Not wiling to listen. If you are really in some need advice you can never reach the doctor.
in Katy, TX |
Especially the second time I went to see Dr. Patel, she spent time with me and was compassionate about my chronic back pain. She was approving of my desire NOT to rely on pain meds, and to seek other help, including referrals for a counselor and other referrals as need She called herself and told me of my lab work results. I have told several people how pleasantly surprised I was to have found a new doctor that I liked so much, having to change doctors due to insurance changes.
in Pattison, TX |
She is such a good doctor and so caring and has been a big part of how I am doing today.
in Houston, TX |
I was a patient for the past two years and was always very happy with my services until May 2016. On this visit, she was rude and angry and condescending. I was shocked!!! She also prescribed a medicine that I did not need or want. I thought maybe she was having a bad day but when I went back a few weeks later to see her partner, I saw her standing in the hallway on the phone taking aggressively and rudely again. I'm very disappointed in this strange change in her and will not be going back.
in Houston, TX |
The doctor is very good with very pleasing bed side manners, but the front office staff is rude, uncourteous and not so efficient. It is so difficult to reach them because they never pick up the phone.
in Houston, TX |
She was the best thing that happened to me and my health. She helped me in getting my weight under control getting my blood pressure regulated and so much more.
