The Loma Linda VA sent me to Dr. Patel and his team at the San diego VA last week (2/13/19) to perform an angioplasty that they could not do ... he came recommended as the best and I will stand on the street corner holding a sign declaring Dr. Patel and his team as exactly that - THE BEST! His entire team was, to me, world-class in performance and more importantly as "real" people. Informative, friendly and efficient! They are the best. Thank you Dr. Patel - John Williams
