What People Say About Dr. Kamlesh Patel, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Unprofessional and no bedside manners. Displays non concerned. Did my EEG under another patient name. Assured me it had been corrected and they were my results. Never apologized, after telling him I'd lost trust in him professionally, before I could say I won't be back, he suggested I find another neurologist. No respect for him at all. Would never recommend him to any one looking for neurologist.

I was sent to Dr. Patel by my Family Doctor because I could not move my left ankle or foot. Upon an exam by Dr. Patel I was diagnosed with Drop Foot. Following his advice for physical therapy, a brace and an eventual nerve test I am now able to move my foot again. Thank you Dr. Patel for your steadfast care. I'm dancing again.... ; )

I visited this office for the first time last week. We recieved some very bad news. The doctor spent probably longer than he had allotted with me as he answered some of the questions I could get out in this moment of shock. He was compassionate, and honest and truthful. I realize that the many inconveniences suffered by patients daily as their appointments aren't on time, or the front desk struggles to keep up with the workload are valid concerns, however, on might stop and ask themselves for a moment, why MIGHT the doctor be late? It just might be because he has spent the last forty minutes in a room with someone after telling them their loved one has an incurable, terminal disease. Your insurance is paying him pennies on the dollar, and has the expectation that each visit should last less than 10 minutes. In this case, instead of delivering the news and rushing out because someone else was waiting, he stayed, and answered questions. Being a doctor is hard, and the insurance companies

We found Dr. Patel to be thorough in his assessment of my husbands concerns and tested him completely. But most importantly we found Dr. Patel to be a very good listener and to give my husband the personal attention he needed to express himself and his concerns about his health. We would be very comfortable recommending him to others in our community.

After 9 months he believes my sudden incontinence, heat prostration, white spots on my brain MRI, and optic neuritis are caused by migraines. No one answered my questions,explained tests, or told me what to expect. He told me he entered this practice so he could shock people with the CNS test. He said I don't appear to have MS but is sending me to the USF clinic of MS. I will be getting a second opinion and a new neurologist

Dr. Patel was the first (of 3 Neurologists) to seriously investigate my adverse reactions to an anti -seizure drug prescribed by other doctors over a period of 7 years. As a result of his recommendations my life is markedly changed. I am completely free of debilitating drug effects, and my overall health and physical stamina has never been better. I am grateful to Dr. Patel for having the knowledge and experience to properly assess my situation.

1. I waited 3 weeks to get an appt and was never sent patient paperwork to fill out online-so it was all done at his office. 2. After filling out the paperwork Dr Patel never once picked up my chart and looked at it. 3. I spent 1 hr past my appt before I was seen by the Dr Patel and he spent 5 minutes with me. 4. Dr Patel walked out of the room and left my chart just laying there with ALL my information on it in the room we were in. I retrieved it when I went back to get my coffee cup. REALLY???
