Dr. Patel did a "simple" Hiatal Hernia repair surgery on me in 2017. I was supposed to be in the hospital "just a few days". While awaiting surgery, his Chief Resident came to repeatedly tell me Dr. Patel is doing another case, and they would take me back "soon". After about FIVE hours they took me to surgery. Afterwards the Resident came to inform me that he was "very sorry to tell me that they cut my colon by mistake...but they fixed it". I was discharged to home. For the next three days I ran a fever, vomited and took pain meds. After calling his office I went to the ER and was admitted. The surgical residents repeatedly told me, "You DO NOT have an infection in your belly!" I asked them why did I have a cutdown in my neck and was on Vancomycin? I was discharged after five days. I got a copy of my medical records. The pathology report showed FECAL MATERIAL in the colon sample. YES I DID HAVE AN INFECTION IN MY BELLY!! THEY ALMOST KILLED ME!!

I was referred to Dr. Patel by two of my patients. I have been in the nursing field and patient referrals go a long way. I asked my own doctor (my employer) what he thought about me having surgery for weight loss and he thought that it was a good idea with my health issues and habits but he insisted that I look and listen for a few things during my initial visit. I did!! I reported back to my doctor and he responded that it sounded like a doctor that knew what he was doing. WELL, HE DOES!!!

To the office of Dr. Jay Patel, First of I would like to thank you, and your staff for making my decision for Bariatric surgery, one of the best decisions I could have made. Since my decision, my surgery and the days to follow have been a transition of peace, and pain free. I'd like to thank you, and your staff...and I look forward to telling more and more people about you.

Dr. Patel has a very good bedside manner with his patients. His staff is very professional if I have to leave a message they will call right back. Most times they are available. He gave my husband his life back. If you follow all of his instructions it doesn't take long for surgery. Apart from the wait for insurance approving the procedure and finding a doctor the process wasn't long and drawn out. This tool has helped my husband tremendously.

I have a rare condition called Achalasia. Dr patel did a heller myotomy on me. He told me he had done this surgery 3 times. Normally I would have been very nervous but Dr patel had my trust immediately. Anyway I had the surgery and everything went 100% perfect. Dr patel is a amazing Dr. I highly highly recommend him for any surgical needs you may have. His staff is also just as amazing.

About Me

I love what I do, whether it's oncology, robotic, or general surgery procedures involving cancers of the thyroid and parathyroid glands, the breast, the gastrointestinal tract, and those related to gallbladder disease. I am fascinated about robotic surgery, the future of surgery.
