Will never recommend Dr. Hemant Patel to anyone. Had to rush the patient to emergency because of delay by the doctor and given wrong times by doctor's staff who kept misplacing the records and also when you turn up for scheduled appointment, doctor was not there. just a message, doctor on holiday, happened twice.
