What People Say About Dr. Nimesh Patel, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
Dr. Nimesh H. Patel is a Neurosurgery & Spine Specialist who has greatly improved my quality of life. When I met with Dr. Patel for a consultation concerning my MRI and back history, his demeanor and personality instilled confidence in his expertise as a surgeon. Dr. Patel explained the results of my MRI and shared with me that the MRI had revealed severe stenosis in my lower back. He then shared with me that he could provide relief from my back pain, and possibly prevent further damage in the future. Dr. Patel was kind and displayed a genuine concern for my health and well being. The surgery went well, and I experienced pain relief early in the weeks following surgery. Stacey Castellanos, a Nurse Practitioner who works with Dr. Patel, was excellent and very supportive during this process and my surgery. Dr. Patel is an excellent surgeon, and I would highly recommend him to anyone suffering with back pain.

Dr. Patel is a Phenomenally Highly Skilled Surgeon! After nearly three years of living with severe back pain and 5 different orthopedic doctors that I lacked confidence in, and would never have considered allowing them to operate, I was referred to Dr. Patel by my GP. My husband and I could tell the difference in knowledge and sills immediately. Dr. Patel (and his nurse practitioner Stacey) have an amazing bedside manner and spent time answering our two+ pages of questions; his level of knowledge and ability to convey the information in layman's terms was impressive! In June 2019, Dr. Patel completed a minimally invasive posterior lumbar fusion operation on me -I was up and walking within hours of my procedure and my back pain was gone! The nurses that provided the aftercare would constantly ask who my surgeon was and would make comments about how perfect the incisions (two tiny vertical incisions along spine) were and what a great surgeon he was! I am so incredibly grateful!

Dr Dr. Patel is the best! He spends time listening to the patient and answers questions well. He has performed anterior spinal surgery on me which may reduce the chance that I will need lower back surgery as soon

Dr. Patel recently relieved me of sciatic pain in my right leg that I have had for over 50 years. He is a great doctor who has a great bedside manner. He did the procedure in day surgery and I was on my way home by noon. I highly recommend this surgeon for his expertise and his well run organization.

Dr. Patel is a miracle worker! Every day, for months, I was crying in pain, taking 30 mins to slide out of bed to the floor, then painstaking working my way to a standing position, just to start the Jenga game of pain that was my day. Dr. Patel took 45 minutes on a day surgery to fix my L5 disc, which looked like it had exploded on the MRI, and after TWO days I stopped taking all pain meds! That was Feb 2018. I haven’t had any problems since! See him TODAY!!!

I'm one of of those folks that usually researches and over analyzes every decision in my life. Not this time. I reached out to an inside source (two friends that are surgical nurses at the local medical center) with one question "If you had to have back surgery today, who would be the surgeon? With no hesitation they rapidly replied "Dr Patel". And they were absolutely correct. My initial consultation, surgery, and the followup visits far exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend.

I had been to several doctors to find a remedy for my chronic lower-back pain with no long-term relief. A friend recommended Dr. Patel and I am so glad she did!! After looking at my MRI, Dr. Patel knew exactly the cause of my pain and how to get me relief that will last. Scheduling of my procedure was quick and was performed without incident. After a 2-week recovery, my back feels fantastic with no signs of any of the pain that I was feeling before.

I contacted a couple that I knew had received back surgeries and they could not praise Dr. Patel enough, so I gave him a try... Five stars are not high enough for Dr. Patel. He is so personable, has great listening skills, clearly explains the problem/recommended surgery procedure, and shows empathy. Dr. Patel did a Metrix Laminectory L4-S1 with Posterior Lateral Fusion surgery; I had no pain, spasms, redness or bruising. I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Nimesh Patel. Kudos Dr. Patel

I had cervical surgery, Dr. Patel was awesome, he answered all of my questions, he even talked to my children and answered their questions and made sure that they knew what was going on. His bed side manners are amazing. Will recommend him to any of my friends and family that needs a neurosurgeon.

I was told 4 years ago by a neurologist that I should wait until the pain was unbearable to have cervical disc surgery that I would change one kind of pain for another kind of pain, well I believed him and suffered unnecessary pain and then started having other symptoms profuse sweating face, nausea vertigo and some headaches my awesome PCP sent me to see Dr. Patel he got me in for surgery and I am finally pain free and free of all the other symptoms I was experiencing highly recommend Dr. Patel

My daughter has suffered most of her life with excruciating back pain. She was taking pain medication 3 to 4 times a day. In 2018 she was introduced to Dr. Nimesh Patel. He immediately knew what to do for her. She has had 2 surgeries performed by Dr. Patel, neck and back. The surgeries gave almost immediate relief. She is just 3 weeks out from her back surgery and is doing amazing! I would highly recommend Dr. Nimesh Patel!

After suffering many years from chronic back pain, injections, non invasive procedures and a 3 level spinal fusion my pain got increasingly worse. My first appointment I saw Stacey, she is so kind and instantly eased my mind. My second appointment I met Dr Patel and knew that I was in good hands. He was confident that surgery would help and it did. Dr Patel is very personable and is a phenomenal surgeon! I highly recommend him.

After suffering with extreme pain in my arm and neck from 2 herniated discs for a year and a half, Dr. Patel did a multi-level ACDF surgery and I've had no pain since. I highly recommend Dr. Patel for anyone suffering from herniated discs.

Dr. Patel is the finest surgeon I've dealt with. He performed a multiple cervical fusion, and I have virtually no difficulty recovering -- very minimal pain. This is my 5th spinal fusion surgery, and from start to healing, my very best experience. I was on my feet romping up and down the hospital halls, a couple hours after surgery. I love his surgical skills, but my best compliment involves the amazing post surgery support team Dr. Patel and his team put together.

Dr. Patel and his entire staff were fantastic during a scary time for me (needing cervical spine surgery due to pressure on spinal cord). The surgery went well and I had no problems whatsoever during my recovery. Just an excellent surgeon with an excellent staff.

Let me caveat first that I have not had surgery from Dr. Patel yet and hopefully won't have to, but if I do he's the one I want doing it. I've herniated by L5-S1 twice now. Once in 2006 and the other time in September of 2017. Physical therapy helped but the ache in my right leg and lower back remains constant. I want to say that when he met with me, I had a list of 35 questions. Not once did he rush me. He listened and was extraordinarily patient. He gave me so much peace and confidence.

Dr. Patel is a very caring and skilled Surgeon. His staff and assistants are all very professional. Recently underwent a spinal fusion procedure that changed my quality of life. He is attentive in listening to the patients concerns and needs. Was very forthcoming with the risks and expectations after the surgery. He is very confident and made me feel I was in the very best of hands for this most serious surgery. Appointments and post surgery care were focused on my convieniance.
