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.
