He didn't have proper ENT medical equipment and referred me to go to inner ear dr. He wasn't specialized in knowing potential ear disorders or issues. A complete waste of time.

I came in to see Dr Patel for vertigo (which I had suffered in the past but never visited a doctor for). I had narrowed it to BPPV myself and had historically, referenced online videos to mimic the maneuver that seemed to be the only successful way to treat it. Since this time it was more persistent, I visited Dr to make sure I was doing the right thing or if there was anything else that could be suggested. After being seen by a nurse with the absolute worst bedside manner (at this point I was so dizzy I couldn't stand / I couldn't even sit without holding on to the sides of the chair). She offered no consideration while listening to my experience - I asked if I could lay back more while I waited for dr to come in, she was irritated. The dr came in for less than 2 minutes to essentially say that if I'm suffering, go to ER for an injection but nothing he can do but make a referral to another audiologist (there was no explanation of what is causing it, no other information). I asked if

Omg, I love Dr Patel. I went in for a bizarre incident I had with my throat. His staff got me in on the same day. He was extremely reassuring and made me feel comforted. He referred me to another wonderful MD to rule out certain concerns and everything eventually worked out very well. I highly recommend him.

I've been a patient of Doctor Patel for about 1 year now. I previously came in with nasal congestion and facial pain pressure. I was unable to breathe causing me to have difficulty sleeping at night as well. Doctor Patel had advised me to do a procedure called Balloon sinuplasty and turbinate reduction to see if i would improve with procedure. After having the procedure I am able to breathe and sleep much better. For anyone who has trouble breathing I highly recommend Doctor Patel as an ENT.

I love to go to Doctor Patel's Office, starting from the staff, they are very friendly . About 2 years ago I was recommended to this office after suffering from severe allergies, for a couple months I had a hard time breathing and couldn't even sleep!! From the very first visit, I was very pleased meeting Dr. Patel he treat me with compassion and respect. He recommended a procedure call Ballon Sinuplasty, and just a few days later I was breathing again!! will highly recommend Doctor Patel.

Dr Patel was my children's doctor. He was the surgeon to 2 of my kids. My kids are now 19 and 24 yrs old and they still seek Dr Patel's care when they get ear infections or nasal congestion.

Suffering from sinus issues? He is the one.Dr. Patel is great. He did a turbinate reduction on me last year and I haven't had to go back to his office. My nose obstruction was simply fixed. I'm just wondering if I need any of the 27 types of surgeries that Dr. Patel performs, according to this website, to have it done! He was recommended by my great allergist Ujwala Kaza. It's so gratifying to find good and caring doctors... This comes from a Cuban who grew up with great and free health care.
