    Dr. Naresh Pated, MD preformed a anterior cervical diskectomy, C3-4, C4-5 for spinal cord and nerve root decompression. The surgery was exceptional, by Dr. Patel. I would wake up every night with both arms and hands numb and with pain, for over a year. Since the surgery I can preform many activities that I could not do before the the nerve root decompression. I would recommend Dr. Patel to any one that needs this type of operation.

    Dr. Patel has a wonderful blend of incredible knowledge and people skills. I have had several visits with him both pre and post spine surgery. He is professional yet friendly and does a great job of conveying complex information.

    Dr Patel was a lifesaver for me personally. The pain in my back was so excruciating to the point where I was crouching in his office when I had first visited him since I could not sit up straight. He scheduled me for surgery immediately and my back and leg pain are gone as I write this three weeks later. I had been struggling with the pain since the 4th of July and it was progressively getting worse over time while I tried non surgical solutions to no avail. I am always skeptical reading reviews but what I had read about Dr Patel seemed to convince me and I’m glad I called him and am well on my way to a full recovery as I write this.

    I CAN'T SAY ENOUGH NICE THINGS ABOUT DR. PATEL. HE IS THE NICEST DOCTOR I HAVE EVER BEEN TO. HE LISTENS TO YOU AND NEVER MAKES YOU FEEL RUSHED. HE WAS PERSONABLE, PATIENT AND EXPLAINED EVERYTHING IN DETAIL SO I COULD UNDERSTAND WHAT WAS HAPPENING. I HAD MY ONE YEAR CHECKUP RECENTLY AND HAVE BEEN COMPLETELY RELEASED. I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND HIM.

    I am a Neurologist/Psychiatrist/Pain Management Doctor and I am very familiar with neurosurgical problems. I was referred to Dr. Patel by another physician who had had a successful surgical procedure by Dr. Patel in the recent past. Dr. Patel evaluated me for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis and performed the appropriate surgical procedure. All of my pre-surgical concerns were answered, especially when it came to anesthesia to protect my aging brain. All went well with the surgery and I was absolutely spoiled by all the attention provided to me by Dr. Patel and associates prior to surgery. The surgery went splendidly and I only spent 45 minutes minutes in recovery before release. What a testament to superb anesthesia and surgical procedure. I recovered nicely over several months and I am now pain free for the 1st time in 4 years. I remain active in my profession and my life. Dr. Patel is a keeper in every sense of that word. If you intend to see him, you will understand my praise!

    Dr. Patel has saved my life (or shall I say given my life back!) Fused C3,4,5 in 2011, and L1,2,3,4 in 2018 due to Spinal Stenosis and arthritis. Neither surgery was easy, I actually have more mobility in each case than I did prior to each surgery. I think the world of this man, and the Mayo Clinic. Thank you Dr. Patel!

    Dr. Patel was on time each visit. He took plenty of time to answer questions and visually show us things regarding my husbands back with helped my husband understand his condition. He as upfront about what to expect after his back surgery. Dr. Patel's nurse was wonderful on and answered all our questions via the portal in a better than expected time frame. His surgery has made his have a life again but is following his instructions very well. Its been about 8 weeks now and things are going very well for him. I would recommend Dr. Patel without a doubt.

    Being a retired Physician Assistant, I have a pretty good radar of quality physician care. Dr. Patel hits all the check marks. Intelligent, personable, patient focused and willing to implement the holistic approach prior tooth knife. Thank God surgery was not an option for me, but physical therapy is the course of action per Dr. Patel. Dr. Patel sets the bar high for all other surgeons. He represent the class and reputation that Mayo MD's are all about. He is well worth the wait. Go see him!
