The whole experience at Westminster was very good. Dr Patel was clear about my injury, what to do in the short term, and how best to follow up. He reminded me about what potential problems could occur with my warfarin use, and its effects in conjunction with my Brien wrist.
Nathrop, CO |

Dr. Patel did an excellent job of explaining my condition and walking through causes and treatment options.
in Lakewood, CO |
Dr. Patel was the surgeon for my right hip arthroplasty in January of 2016. The results of that procedure was excellent with no problems in the right hip area from then on. Due to the results of this procedure, I've decided to have my left hip arthroplasty done by Dr. Patel, which is scheduled for September of this year (2017).
in Denver, CO |
Dr. Patel, has been our orthopedic Doctor for a number of years. He has been very through in his diagnosis and treatment of my knees. His unhurried demeanor is refreshing. The staff he works with makes certain that my treatment after knee replacement has been followed very closely and any questions or concerns were answered immediately.

Denver, CO |
I was so fortunate to have Dr. Patel perform my surgery. I couldn't have hoped for a better surgeon or outcome. He was so personable and very patient and kind in explaining conditions and answering questions. I feel truly blessed that he was able to help me through my somewhat challenging surgery. He was awesome!
in Thornton, CO |
Dr. Patel is very kind and very knowledgeable. I needed a knee replacement revision (done by another Dr.) He did not rush to do surgery without trying other alternatives and running tests to make sure it was needed. I really appreciated that! I had my revision replacement in April. Dr. Patel and his staff go above and beyond to make sure you are doing well after surgery. Thank you Dr. Patel for improving my life!

Friendly, knowledgeable, warm handshake upon entering and leaving exam room. Don't feel rushed during exam time.

Upon meeting Dr. Patel, he's extremely friendly, knowledgeable and makes a person very at ease. I am 80 yrs old and had a full knee replacement. The surgery went wonderfully, and the care after was impeccable. I highly recommend DR. Patel and Panorama Ortho for any and all your orthopedic needs.
in Westminster, CO |
Dr. Patel operated on my left hip in July of 2013. I had had hip replacement surgery outside Panorama, on the left hip in February of 2007. I had experienced severe pain for over a year after the first surgery. I tried to fix the way I walked and thought the pain was my fault. Dr. Patel diagnosed the problem and fixed my hip. Now, 3 years later I walk and even run with no pain. I work with Infants and toddlers every day - up and down from the floor, lifting them etc. NO problem!!
in arvada,Colorado |
He is the best. Answers all my questions
in Denver, CO |
He would take the time with me to answer all of my questions and let me know what my options were and whether surgery was needed or not.
in centennial, CO |
He's a great, kind doctor
in Denver, CO |
I had shattered my right humerus in three different places due to a surfing iaccident. Dr. Patel came highly recommended in the area and agreed to my request for help. I am six months post op and have better than 100% recovery for passive mobility and I am gaining strength daily with exercises prescribed by his physical therapy staff. He is the best at what he does, I highly recommend him for an injury as serious as mine.
in arvada colorado |
First off, he answered all of my questions with easy to understand answers. He was friendly.
in conifer,co |
Very knowledgeable, very easy to talk to to about anything.
in Morrison, CO |
Dr. Pael did emergency surgery after a bad skating fall resulting in a Triple hip fracture. He patched me back together and after 19 days in the hospital and 6 outpatient PT visits I at just shy of 5 months am 100% of recovery. Dr. Patel is a terrific surgeon and is warm and caring. I would recommend him to anyone!!!
