    Simi Valley, CA |
    Dr. Patel was recommended to me by the former head of the hospital GI dept. I can see why. He was very knowledgeable and through. He accommodated my request to go through a colonoscopy with no meds. He was very skilled and there was very little discomfort and I was able to go right back to work. I would highly recommend Dr. Patel.

    I am so surprised to see the average to negative ratings for Dr. Patel. He has always been patient answering my questions and explaining details about my visit to his office. As for his front office, they have always been pleasant. If I were to find any fault with the office staff it is that a couple times, follow through on requesting a new medication to my insurance company has been slow. Other than that, I am very pleased with the service I have received.
