I really disagree with the last review of the patient saying Dr. Patel is the greatest and they go out of their way to see her. My last couple of visits with Dr. Patel was where she would argue with you about your symptoms and where she would play guessing games about your health and the last visit was when I was in the beginning stages of Bronchitis she left me with the diagnosis of allergies. That is where I drew the line and founda new doctor.

I love Dr. Patel. My husband and I have been going to her only for years, and we drive 30 min away to see her only. She is super courteous and truly cares about her patients. She is great at accommodating emergencies and always follows up when she says she will. I highly recommend her to anyone on this planet, but especially people who feel uneasy about seeing doctors. Dr. Patel’s calm and professional demeanor will make anyone feel at ease.
