Patient Reviews (5)
in Odenton, MD |
My first appointment with Dr. Patel was on Tuesday 3/21. After meeting with the doctor, I was very impressed. He is full of knowledge, caring, and friendly. He made certain I had a good understanding of my issue. My appointment started on-time and the office staff was friendly. Dr. Patel is fantastic!
Bethesda, MD |
By far and away the best Dr I've ever had! Knowledgeable, up to date on current ways of treating patients, and great on imparting his wisdom. In 2013, he completed my septoplasty and I haven't felt better! Recently, I had to go back in with post nasal drip and sinus infection that was persisting for months, and with his recommendations I was cured in days. I've never slept or felt better. He is the best!
in Upper Marlboro, MD |
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.
in Upper Marlboro MD |
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.
Washington |
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.
