Patient Comments (4)

Not available when you need to see him and his staff are only concerned about getting through their work on time. Not the place to go if you are sick

Dr. Himanshu Patel is a great Psychiarist. He has a great bedside manner and a good sense of humor!

Considering the overwhelming amount of academic fraud as of late in India I seriously think his credentials should be called into question, as well as a look into his work visa.

Very inconsistent. Short clipped answers, as well as answering patients issues with laughter, a head shake, and more notes on the laptop. He is so busy sending in the patient's refill requests that he doesn't actually listen to patients. Expect constant changes in the PA that you will be set up...more
