They would not see me claiming they haven't seen me since 2018 so I had to get another referral before I could be seen. My head is swollen up on side of my face and they still would not see me.

I spent a lot more time in waiting than normal this last appointment. No problem, there has been times I’ve held Dr. Patel up with my disorder. She stays as long as it takes to learn how my seizures have been since my last visit. Thank you Dr. Patel and Memorial Satilla Neurology staff for the nice follow-up visit last Monday.

Dr Patel is a very good doctor and is very patient, helpful and knowledgeable. She always has plenty of time to answer any questions or concerns I might have. She's NEVER rushed to leave and see other patients. She's very gentle when she does procedures and very caring. She's a great neurologist and very competent. Her staff are also very patient and caring. I love going to her office and would DEFINITELY recommend her services to anyone looking for a good neurologist.

I question the ethics. I was a victim of IV Infiltration in both right hand and Arm in about 10 hour period. Because I was having problems with my hand The Doctor preformed some test. in her conclusions and findings I am paraphrasing. 10 muscles tested 5 came back with abnormal readings. Potential on set of carpel tunnel, And Intermittent signal interference, Doctor gets referrals So I can understand not wanting to support her Patients. IV in my arm two hours after they new I infiltrated left it

She is seeing a patient load of 3 doctors in the office alone. Both doctors that used to be in the office have left for various reasons. She is very professional and tries her best to help her patients. She listened to me and explained things in a way I could understand them. I rate her a 10 out of 10. Send a copy of this to Mayo Clinic Health Systems in Waycross please.
