Go anywhere else. Our appointment for my daughter was for a reoccurring skin rash. Our stay in the waiting room was two hours, then over thirty minutes in the exam room. We wanted food allergy testing because our son has food allergies and we suspected the same thing. Dr. Patel said no. We wasted time and money to find out my daughter is allergic to ragweed. Rash is still there, excessively large bill, no doctor accountability. But he will see us again, anytime!!! Ya right.

Dr. Patel is absolutely amazing. Great bedside manner, honest and caring. He was very professional and he helped me tremendously with my condition (better than any other doctor I have ever seen). He spent as much time as I needed to explain things to me. He politely answered every question I asked. His staff are polite, friendly and knowledgeable. Wait time was very reasonable. The facilities are very clean and attractive. Overall, it was a very pleasant experience. Thank you Dr. Kumar.

I had my first case of hives from stress and was referred to Dr. Patel by my pcp. I was still in college and had no clue what was going on. He danced around the fact that he had no clue what was causing my hives or how to cure them even though I kept saying they were from stress. When he noticed that he wasn't going to get anywhere with me because the hives were healing on their own, he tricked me into taking an allergy test that had nothing to do with my case and I got a $500 bill in the mail.

This doctor is only worried about money he could care less if he takes care of your problems. I had to get a referral to go then less then 2 months later they wanted me to get another and I refused and told them to cancel the appointment which wasn't for another week. A few days ago I received a letter stating they refused to offer me any service and that I should find a new doctor. Funniest thing ever like you hurt my feelings lol

This doctor has no bedside manner and he doesn't even acknowledge it when he has had you waiting for a long period of time for an appointment. I was going to stop going to him earlier but I started seeing the assistant. However, I made an appointment with her and I didn't discover she wasn't there and they double booked until I had been waiting fifty minutes. No one called me ahead of time to tell me the situation or bothered to tell me when I checked in for my appointment.
