North Brunswick, NJ |
They gave appointment at route 27 office and none of them at office when we went there for consulting. No response for telephone calls, voice message and no sorry for not meeting the clients. Very unprofessional way of working and no recommendations.
Monroe Township, NJ |
This office has a policy that "An appointment gets cancelled if you are 15 min late". They do not tell you this on the phone, even if you call for the 1st time. They make no exceptions whatsoever, and the girl Myra, assistant manager, took great enjoyment in telling me that the doctor cannot see me, without inquiring with anybody. She made me wait 1.5 hrs till the manager came back from lunch, without telling me that the manger had been out for 2 hrs already. If I knew that, I would've never wa

I submitted a detailed review of my disastrous experience at this doctors office and it has mysteriously been deleted. This is probably one of the worst medical offices I have ever been to in my whole life. The doctor does not respect their patients time - makes you wait for an hour and barely gives you 4 minutes. The office was full of older Indian patients so I guess they can wait? Unacceptable! The staff is very rude and treat their patients poorly and they dont care about their patents.

I had extreme dry eye issue over a year. With Patel eye clinic I received right treatment. Thank you!
