He listened carefully to me talk for awhile about my condition, he asked questions, he did some simple tests, and he explained things to me. I've only seen him once for a consultation, and I am not doing any treatment with him, but my initial impression is very good, and I would recommend others to see him.

Doctor Patel is untrustworthy. It is a shame what he is doing to honorable veterans. He works as a contractor for Veterans Evaluation Services, and he is paid to deny legit veteran disability claims. Shame on him for not being honest and taking his time to hear the veterans complaints and reviewing the medical records.

Dr. Patel is also a contracted VA C&P examiner. He doesn't listen to anything that you say. In addition, he doesn't use any favorable information that he finds in your medical records. He is not a fair doctor and he shouldn't ever be allowed to examine another disabled veteran for the rest of his medical career. I am already service connected, and based on his evaluation he is basically telling the VA Regional office that my service and commitment to my country isn't worth an honest decision

I was misdiagnosed by Dr. Patel. I was put on medication that I had the worst possible reactions to and told him I thought it was the medication and I did not want to be on it. He upped dose and flagged me as depressed. He was not sympathetic or easy to talk to in any way. He put me through countless MRI’s, blood tests , spinal taps and hospital visits because he could not figure it out. I was 30 when I was first going to him as a patient. He never believed what I had to say and disregarded me.

Dr Patel took time to really listen, with consideration, to what I had to say. For the first time in years I have hope that I won’t have to live in pain forever. Also, he is very nice and easy to talk to.
