Patient Comments (1)

Dr. Patel was extremely rude during my entire visit. He came into the room with his mind made up and wouldn’t listen to any of my questions or concerns. He rushed me along and acted like I was wasting his time. Terrible bedside manner. Do not go see this doctor. You will be disappointed.
