    I highly recommend Dr. Patel for your care. I felt the care I received for my back surgery (TLIF) was outstanding. The process to select surgery was not a rushed option. We discussed and tried alternatives and when surgery became the option, I was well informed. I received and an educational surgery packet which restated his instruction, I found this to be very helpful and used it alot. I felt cared for and all my questions got answered.

    I had a prior ACDF, thoracic fusion. Great Doctor,,, Took very good care of me.. Very happy with everything..
    in Dearborn, MI |
    Doctor was very informative, and pleasant and good bed side manner. We appreciate the time he took and all of his explainations that he gave gave options and didnt pressure into a procedure.
    One can experience 2 hour wait times. Careless office visit notes so that doctor and staff are clueless as to your medical needs and the purpose of the follow up appointment. Very unclear treatment goal and planning. In general, really lousy communication which no one can afford when it concerns health and well being.

    My surgery is not until Nov. 28th... HOWEVER - I have done my research and my choice is Dr. Patel - for many reasons. I have been in pain for close to two years and have seen two other doctors... Time will tell -after surgery - how BLESSED we will be on that day. Because I was a Communications LIAISON between Chrysler and The UAW for 29 years - I wanted him to know I have over 200 CLOSE friends and family members Praying for OUR surgery on Nov 28th.

    Dr. did not keep his appointment waited an hour and a half my 79-year-old mother with dementia . This is not right for a doctor to make you wait wait an hour and a half past your appointment time ! Had to leave because she was so tired from waiting did not even see the doctor
