Dr. Patel's Care Philosophy

A customer is the most important visitor on our premises. He is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him. He is not an interruption in our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider in our business. He is part of it. We are not doing him a favor by serving him. He is doing us a favor by giving us an opportunity to do so. written by The Great Mahatma Gandhi

Patient Comments (2)
Harlingen, TX |
I usually don't write reviews but Dr. Patel is over the top in term of disappointment. Average waiting time at the office is between 2-3 hours and she won't apologize for having you wait hours. If you dare to complain you will hear it from her about how busy a schedule she has, that she has to see patients at the hospital et caetera....She has a total lack of respect for the patient and is enjoying the perks of living in a small town where the paucity of competition allows her to be that way!!!
in Harlingen, TX |
She is considerate compassionate and caring. She is extremely intelligent and knows her field of work very well. Above all she listens to my concerns and adresses them to my satisfaction. Listening to the patient's concern is a priority that all doctors should have unfortunately some do not have. I highly recommend Dr. Manta Patel to anyone who needs treatment for their eyes and is looking for an M.D. as I have described above. She goes the extra mile for you.
