    Dr Patel is an excellent, conscientious, knowledgeable and caring doctor. As busy as she is, I never feel like I am being rushed and never wait very long to see her. Excellent response on prescription renewals. On-site lab,x-ray and MRI is very convenient. She is competent and caring. I highly recommend her.

    My initial appt was ok. She diagnosed me with Sjogrems disease and ordered lab and X-ray of my lungs. Both of which were done at her office. (BTW, very expensive lab! Over $700 for blood and urine work!). She said she would call me in 7-10 days with results and next steps. I waited and waited. Then after two plus weeks, I started calling. I left multiple messages with the front desk, and also her assistant. Nothing! It took multiple calls to finally get a call back. It was from her assistant.

    Smart, with a great memory for your last visits/family etc, willing to go out of her way to research meds (especially as I have a really rare disease). Very personable. Easy to talk to. Extremely competent

    She is a good doctor.Compassionate,gentle & she answers all the questions with patience and examines thoroughly. She gives enough time for the patient to feel comfortable & confident with the examination & diagnosis. However,it is a shame that her staff: reception & especially her medical assistant, are extremely incompetent.They are not at all courteous;rarely respond to messages;so much so that her medical assistant's voicemail was full for 3 weeks!It is a nightmare to deal with them.

    I had undiagnosed RA that Dr Patel easily detected without any prior testing. After testing she was absolutely right and the 5 doctors I went to previously did not even mention RA!! My treatments have had the normal ups and downs but for the most part they have dramatically helped. Dr Patel is a real pro!
    in San Jose, CA |
    I would recommend Dr. Patel as a competent Doctor. I trust her diagnosis and her recommendations. The only complaint I have is that her assistant does not return calls, her voice mail is always full, and it takes weeks for lab results unless you have an appointment.
