Patient Comments (47)
After a year of back injections I went to see Dr. Patel. He told me he could fix my back an stop the lower back pain. I could not walk or sit without pain. I went in for surgery in the morning and was given the royal treatment. They answered all of my questions an made me feel very confident with the procedure. I walked out of the building 3 hours later!! It has been two months and I am pain free! I highly recommend Dr. Patel for lower back pain.

Amazing surgeon that saved my life after a previous "sugeon" almost killed me during a back surgery that was done wrong. Dr. Patel performed a neck surgery on me a few weeks and recovery is going great so far.

in Brownstown, MI |
Outstanding spine surgeon! Had lumbar fusion surgery 8 weeks ago and the recovery is going extremely well. Very very happy with the results to this point. Dr. Patel's P.A., Brian, is a class act in his own right. Spends all the time with you that you need giving care and answering your questions. Very competent!

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.
in Dearborn, MI |
Dr Patel is no frills no nonsense, I like that. I am comfident in his abilities and would feel comfortable with him being my surgeon should it become necessary.

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
