Hudson, FL |
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.

Dr Patel is extremely knowledgeable, informative and takes his time explaining everything. So thankful we were referred to him. His staff is also very well trained and professional.

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.
