Being limited to only 500 characters I will keep this brief. I had larnyx cancer, was operated on, radiation. Last day of radiation I collapsed, cardiac arrest, DOA and life support. Made an appointment and was told I owed her money. Evidently she was the pulmonologist who saw me in the ER. When I showed for the appointment, I was told if I didn't pay half of what I owed, she wouldn't see me. I offered to set up a payment plan like I have with other Drs. but they wouldn't accept that.

As a medical professional with over 32 years experience in patient care I found it appalling that Dr. Patel NEVER considered or listened to her patients concerns and experience with their disease process. She refuses to provide patients with severe sleep apnea, chronic bronchitis with any prescription medications, instead telling "That is your primary physicians job!". I was also told: "When you get sick go directly to the Emergency Room, do not come to my office!" Terrible bedside manor!

great experience. highly intelligent, stayed on point with my concerns, used our time together efficiently by covering all my questions, and still being personable and courteous. I have experienced many doctors who have spent more time asking me about my religion and culture, rather than showing any concern over my health- this was a refreshing experience.

I highly recommend Dr Patel to anyone looking for a sleep doctor or a pulmonologist. Contrary to a few of the previous comments, I found her to be highly personable, knowledgeable, and highly efficient. She asked all the right questions, and was sure she got a comprehensive picture before proceeding with treatment plans. Efficiency is key when it comes to patient/doctor time and I for one appreciate that she is so efficient.

I have visited & seen many physicians and specialist in my lifetime. This was my worst experience! Doctor Lupa Patel talks an rarely listens. I strongly recommend that she gets some extra training in all aspects of the medical field.

Both times I saw this doctor I experienced her rude, arrogant and condescending attitude. She acts like she hates her job and her patients. Stares at computer screen the entire consult, barely making eye contact. She does not listen and repeats questions over and over, even if you've answered them. She talks over you and does not listen. My last visit she kept me waiting 45 min and saw pharma reps before me even tho I was waiting. I walked out of the visit half way through. The worst. Staff rude

Upon placing my initial call to schedule my first appointment, I was greeted by polite and patient staff who helped me find a time that fit my schedule. I got in to see Dr. Patel relatively soon after calling, which was highly appreciated. The Dr. was very kind, she listened patiently as I explained how I was feeling, she asked me questions to help her diagnose, and more importantly she thoroughly explained her thought process as well as the options I had for treatment. Would def recommend
