Dr. Patel is truely amazing. She genuinely cares about her patients. She took the time to listen to my questions and never made me feel rushed. The office staff was nice and accommodating. I would highly recommend her to family and friends who want a compassionate, professional eye doctor.

I had never met Dr. Patel before until an appointment with her office yesterday. A battery of tests were done by her technician, probably encompassing about 45 minutes in time. Very thorough, I thought. When Dr. Patel came in she was a bit above rude, explaining my condition to a woman who I did not recognize and when I asked, she told me she was a third year resident. Dr. Patel did not dress professionally nor was she interested in answering questions. I would not see her again.
