in Vandalia, Ohio |
I'm shocked at some of the previous responses. My dad is 92 and I've had several appointments with Dr. Patel. Dr. Patel treated my dad with kindness and respect. He made sure to ask him questions, listened to him, and took plenty of time to explain my dad's situation. Some doctors write off people of my dad's age. Dr. Patel did not. He sincerely cares.

I was underwhelmed by Dr Patel. He seems to have vacated the world of medical science. His treatment for TMJ induced tinnitus was to take lipo-flavenoid, which is a potion developed in 1963, that has NEVER passed a clinical trial, and is marketed as a supplement to avoid FDA control. Recommending Lipo-flavenoid is something I would expect from a hairdresser, not a medical doctor.

Dr. Patel performed a procedure in the office and when I inquired as to what that procedure had to do with why I was there, his response was nothing and he turned away. I was not told in advance what he was going to do nor was I asked if I wanted this elective procedure done. I have never dealt with a physician where I felt they had anything but my best interest in mind until my appointment with Dr. Patel. I now understand the importance of questioning a physician and advocating for myself.
