Although Dr. Patel is knowlegeable in the field, he has very rude/arrogant and unfriendly and heartless staff. They lack compassion, they will not answer your questions or allow you to ask the Doctor even the assisting doctors. Their customer service is zero. They will be the first to threaten to cancel your appointment or hang up the phone on you. I wish there is a way Dr. Patel will find out how his staff chase patients away. I had to find another DR. They do not deserve a star from me.

After an initial examination and a hearing test, he took the time to explain that my hearing was just fine and suggested that I speak to my primary care physician about adjusting my high blood pressure medicatiin. His advice mirrored the advice that I had received from two other doctors.

Dr. Patel is kind. Please do not see him if you have severe/chronic medical condition for which he is the specialist. He does not like to prescribe antibiotics even when they are needed. His staff is arrogant and unable to listen to what patients have to say.
