      The worst G.I. I have ever been to. Did a Colonoscopy, told me diagnosis while I was still coming out of my anesthesia, gave me a prescription and sent me on my way, no advice or never told me anything about my conditions, and I had to wait hours on end for the procedure, mind you, without being able to eat or drink anything.... Staff is rude and won't really answer your questions. If there was an option to give zero stars, I would give them that review

      I used to see Dr Patel, one lady at his office was so rude I switched. Wanting to give them another chance, I called to make an appointment and because I spoke out about how I was treated they told me they couldn't help me. Stay away!!!
