Dr. Patel was SO good and understanding with me and our little baby girl when we found out she had a tongue and lip tie. I was so nervous about doing any kind of procedure with her being so young but he was perfect in easing my fears and allowing me plenty of time to ask lots of questions, I never felt rushed or pressured at all, and I couldn't stay in the room to watch it so he told me where the bathroom was and before I was even done washing my hands he was already done and she was back asleep

Dr. Patel is very informative, and takes time to teach. He figured out our sons problem and how to correct it naturally without meds like the pediatrician thought he needed.

Dr. Patel is awesome. My daughter had a tongue and severe lip tie. I didn't know what to expect as a first time mom. He took the time to explain everything to us, with statistics for success and infection, even when I didn't know what to ask. I felt very comfortable with allowing him to fix the ties the same day. He did it very quickly and my daughter only cried for about 2 minutes afterward. At the 2 week check up, her lip and tongue were both healed perfectly. I'm very happy with the results.

Dr Patel is extremely knowledgeable, informative and takes his time explaining everything. My children love Dr Patel. He truly cares for his patients and what they have going on. We have been with Dr Patel at least 10 years. I'm not very happy with his staff in his Wesley Chapel office. The staff in the Tampa office is a lot more helpful and friendly.

I have been in the U.S. for the last eight years and honestly, he is the best doctor I've ever seen. He is one of the few doctors who is both knowledgeable and caring He is goal-oriented, trustworthy, and quite modest, unlike most of the doctors. As parents of 15 month old baby, we are truly grateful to him. We feel lucky to have met him after a couple of bad ENT doctors. I would recommend him to anyone without any hesitation.
