He does not listen, he wrongfully diagnosed me while I was having a horrible case of insomnia mixed with anxiety and panic attacks every other second, went to get help and got even more messed up from not needing the drug he prescribed! When I went back months later when I had knowledge about anxiety and what was going on I tried explaining that wasnt me in the hospital I hadn't slept for over a week! He tried switching the med for the same thing he prescribed me before not listening to a word I said he says "I'm not giving you drugs you have abused drugs in the past" I honestly just wanted a little help and all he seen was me there to get drugs! Druggies may ruin it for people by abusing but it is a shame that he had to accuse me of being there just to get drugs!! Which is complete B/S! He made me feel horrible because I really am a changed person! I am off all medications and feel alot better once I realized how to deal with anxiety more! Thank you god!!!

Dr Patel and his assistants at Enlighten are wonderful! They actually care about me. If you are just looking for drugs or doctor shopping, don't waste your time! These doctors actually care and want to help. If I call with a problem, it's taken care of quickly. The staff is great and see me as a person not someone with a mental problem! Love them all!

He does not listen to you. He already has his mind/treatment fixed for you. It does not matter if she wants you on a drug that had already been tried with spresultant side effects. Nor do his associates take into account medical conditions.
