New patient 65 years old with many concerns and the man didn't listen to a word I said ...I noticed how he rushes patients in and out ...my chest x-ray came back with a cardio negative and he never bothered to contact me ...I verified that the lab sent it to him but his office staff claims that they never received it ...other clerical glitches too ...under it all I have a feeling that he is a fine physician but Dr. Patel must learn to listen to the patient ...very uncomfortable and unsettling.
