Patient Comments (5)
in Fairfax, VA |
Dr. Patel listens and is very thorough. My dry eyes feel so much better since she has been my physician. I highly recommend her.
Dr. Patel is intelligent, knowledgable and professional. She has helped me through some complications with my vision. She is kind and takes time to explain things pertaining to my eyes. It is important to me that that a doctor listens to what I say about my health and Dr. Patel listens. The office staff have been kind and helpful.

She gave my son a very strong prescription. I took him to another doctor because I know that his prescription was wrong and surprise! it was very, very strong more than what he needed. Also the waiting time at the Vienna office was more than an hour.

Wish I could leave a negative 10! I've HAD IT! After 2-3 years of seeing Dr. Patel--despite overbooking, horrendous wait times, lack of adequate seating in the waiting area, and an expensive eye mask that broke and couldn't be returned--this is the FINAL STRAW. My need for a prescription refill is being HELD HOSTAGE by the insistence that I come in for an annual exam when it's still several weeks before the one-year point. My insurance company won't like that any more than I do. BEWARE!
A friendly doctor who takes the time to understand the needs of her patients and clearly explain the diagnosis and corrective paths.
