Dr. Patel is the rare doctor who is a knowledgeable, compassionate, excellent listener who takes the time to explain clearly recommendations in a calm reassuring manner. She recommends remedies that aren’t just another prescription which are simple readily available. She makes her patients feel understood and important. I feel fortunate that she is my doctor!

Dr Patel took the time to listen and to educate. Great bedside manners, comforting doctor and thorough explanation. I live an hour away from Reston but it’s totally worth the trip. Best gastro by far I’ve seen in Washington DC area.

I can't tell you how impressed I was with Dr. Patel. She let me talk and give her all my background info, and then answered all my questions and seemed to know about solutions other doctors had not mentioned. She didn't rush at all. It was obvious that she was completely up to date in her field of medicine. I am having a colonoscopy next week and know that I am in great hands.

I waited for my date of appointment only to be cancelled by the office and then was only offered another appointment a month out. I arrived at this appointment to find out that in 1 week they would no longer be taking my insurance. NO ONE bothered to contact me. This is the age of communication and there is no excuse for this ! I was told they were "trying" to contact all their patients. I can't even believe the level of UNPROFESSIONALISM !!! Very angry.

Dr.Patel is one of the most knowledgeable doctors I have ever been to. She takes the time to listen, and then goes above and beyond to see that the issue is resolved. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of a Gastronenologist!
