Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Excellent neurologist!
Neurologists have a reputation for being cold and impersonal, with big egos. That is not true of Dr. Patel. He is caring, supportive, and makes good recommendations.

My visit was a follow up visit. What I really like about Dr. Patel is he always speaks to me in words I understand. I he talks of a treatment of condition he hasn't spoken to me about, he will pause and ask me if I understood. before he continues, then he continues on once he is comfortable with the explanation he has given me.

Dr Patel knew my history from reading the notes from my referring doctor. I was very pleased I didnt have to go through all my info. He was also good at explaining the procedure, and was personable and professional. This was the least painful of the four times I've had these procedures. I found him by researching reviews. I had to wait a month + for my appt, but Dr Patel was worth the wait. I would recommend him.
