Patient Comments (4)
in Pomona, Ca |
Very good listener , works with you and takes time to go over your health issues ! Very friendly .
Los Angeles, CA |
I have PPO insurance so if I need to make an appointment with a doctor I just call. I contacted the office as was told that I need to have a referral from another doctor. I do not have an HMO. I explained this to the receptionist but she still stated I need a referral. She seemed rushed and busy so I will look for another office .
in Corona, CA |

Dr. Patel took the time to explain everything to me in layman's terms. She made me feel very comfortable at my first visit. She earned my trust. I am very pleased with the manner in which I was treated.
