What People Say About Dr. Nirav Patel, MD

Dr. Patel is one of the best physicians we have ever had for our daughter and we’ve had many over the years. He listens to her and does everything necessary to help her. We can’t thank him enough for his thorough care and personal attention. We’ve seen him in his offices as well as the hospital and can’t say enough about how kind he is. He is smart and won’t stop until he gets to the bottom of the problem.

This doctors staff is UNRESPONSIVE. You leave messages chasing them up for test results and you get no return calls. Utterly shameful that as a parent, you are concerned for your child's well being and can't get the doctor to respond to your requests for test results. I should never have to call a doctors office several days in a row to get the answers to test results!!!

We transferred to Dr. Patel from another GI specialist for my son bc he has issues gaining weight. Dr. Patel is very friendly, knowledgeable and actually tries to help with any concerns. I would definitely recommend Dr. Patel to anyone!
