Charleston, SC |
Dr. Patel is an amazing surgeon. I had a rhinoplasty 11 years ago from another doctor, who stripped my cartilage and left me with a collapsed nasal valve, unable to breathe through one side of my nose. I finally decided to fix the issue. After meeting with 3 different doctors, I felt I was in the right hands when I met Dr. Patel. The surgery was extensive and lengthy but I am so happy I finally went through with it. 5 months post op and I am much happier and healthier.

Dr.Patel had to reconstruct my nose after a previous plastic surgeon destroyed it during a deviated septum surgery. She cartilage out of my ear and fascia from my scalp. It took 8 hours of surgery and my results are beautiful. She is a gifted surgeon. I had a terrible recovery in at MUSC due to the recovery room nurse but that's not Dr. Patel's fault.

I had a horrific experience with Dr Patel 3 years ago as she performed the wrong type of surgery on my face. During evaluation by personnel, I was told type of surgery to be provided would be cosmetic. However, via miscommunication with staff, Dr Patel broke my nose and performed a strictly functional surgery to give me a wider bridge and flared nostrils which looks ridiculous on my face! Afterward, she apologized and said she incapable to fix it and tried to refer me out to a more qualified Dr.
