If I could leave zilch stars I would. The worst medical office, I have known thus far. If you want a doctor who cares about your health PLEASE dont go here. They lag horribly on getting referrals done and just have no clue as to what they are doing. Avoid at all cost!

I have seen Dr Patel with both of my elderly parents. I appreciate her care very much. She has given my parent thorough exams & has been "hands on". She has my endorsement.

I was referred to Dr. Patel due to episodes of paralysis, feeling like I was going to black out when I would lean my head back, nerve burning in my neck, weakness in my hands. With this & no exam Patel proclaimed her “suspicions” of sleep apnea & clogged arteries. I went to another Doctor who suspected I had a textbook case of foraminal narrowing.The CTC scan with dye verified his diagnosis. Save your time & health SEE ANOTHER DOCTOR who uses investigation as opposed to their suspicious beliefs

The wait was brief, the staff was pleasant. I was there for testing, which was as described to me by my referring doctor. EMG's are uncomfortable, but that is the nature of the testing. Dr. Patel kept me informed of every step, which did help.
