My experience with Blair Gastro was fantastic. Dr. Patel is very thorough, caring& friendly. He was very knowledgeable& confident in his decisions. This is extremely important to me. I have been to Specialists of many fields of practice, Urgent Cares, ER's, & seen various providers within my PCP's office. I have never left an office feeling so certain that I was being treated properly& trusted the judgment of the Doctor like I did with Dr. Patel. I knew what he was doing& why it was being done. All of the girls I seen from the Front Receptionist, Nurse, Exit Receptionist & Lab Tech were welcoming, warm& professional. In addition, there was very little to no wait! I would Highly recommend Dr.Patel& his staff to anybody in need of a gastrointestinal doctor, even if were my own children!!

I trust Dr Patel with my life. He is the most caring doctor that I have ever been to. I recommend him to anyone that needs to go to a gastro dr. I am a cancer patient and he is more on top of everything than my oncologist. There are very few doctors that care about their patients like Dr Patel does.

Dr. Patel is a doctor who cares about his patients and it shows through his upmost care. When I was diagnosed with UC I was under his care. Dr. Patel would call me to see how I was doing since I was getting sicker and sicker and medicine treatments weren't working he didn't mess around he referred me to Pittsburgh where I had my entire Large Intestine removed (it was precancerous). Thanks to Dr. Patel and God I am alive! God truly blessed the hands and heart of Dr. Patel.
