The all day waiting was abysmal. Twice I spent all day waiting to do tests, When I met with him, he wanted to order another test which was completely unnecessary. He then proceeded to describe several things that could cause my death - one being a car accident (it got worse from there). I did not schedule the tests and would never go back to him or the center he works for. I was in a state of panic until I saw another doctor. These people treat you like you're already dead,

I have been seeing Dr. Patel for almost 2 years for a blood clotting disorder. He is a very caring and intelligent doctor. Most of the time I am very critical of doctors and Dr. Patel is one of the few that I would give an overall 5 star rating.
