Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

While Dr. Patel was very patient and listened to what I said, she didn't follow through. I asked that a copy of the pathology report be sent to me, but it never was. When I called the office to get a copy I opted for the nurse. My call was sent to the scheduler. I don't think the scheduler qualifies as a nurse. When I was given an option to put my message in a voice mailbox, I found that the mailbox was full. Dr. Patel did re-prescribe a $1,200 medicine for me in spite of the fact that she said that she would try to find a less expensive Rx. She did not suggest that I schedule a follow up visit with her after I finished taking the medicine. I found my entire experience with this practice poor.

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.
