Doctor Patel is by far the most thorough and concise doctor I've had. She is always very clear with me regarding my lab results, and explains how each result affects me. She explains each treatment in an easy-to-understand way, and her after-appointment write-ups are very simply to follow. Overall she has been great and I would recommend anyone who is looking into a nephrologist to consider her.

Dr. Patel has an ability to assure confidence in what she knows and spends her time making sure that you understand. She is very thorough in her approach to the medical facts pertaining to your situation. She is friendly and smiles which puts one at ease. Come with questions and she will listen and respond kindly. She encourages participation and asks to be called if something needs clarification. I was referred to Dr. Patel by my PCP. I would recommend her highly! Sincerely, Anne J. Munro

My husband is a patient of Dr. Patel. We are both so very happy with her! She is very efficient and very kind. One time in 2013 when my husband was in ICU at providence for cardiac arrest I happen to see doctor Patel walk to a desk about 10 feet away. I called out to her and told her about my husband who was in a comma. Doctor Patel took the time to talk to my husband and wish him well. I will never forget her kindness that day as it meant so much to me..........we would recommend her!!

referred by my primary to Dr Patel, i consider her concern, treatment and manner to be excellent. due to my minimal health coverage, and other chronic conditions, i feel fortunate for her accepting and providing critical medical care. i believe the modern kidney care is a pressing area of medicine, as i have heard it described as an epidemic of ckd and dialysis, am very grateful for the lifeline, and hope funding and compensation to doctors increase as it is direct to saving lives. cheers
