Dr. Patel performed a routine colonoscopy for me this morning. I was embarrassingly nervous but the staff and Dr. Patel made me feel so comfortable and the procedure was completed very quickly. I am so grateful for the wonderfullly professional experience I have had. Thank you.

During my procedure Dr Patel came in to check on me. He called me by the wrong name and would not believe who I was untill I showed him my braclet. Upon recognizing his mistake he then lied about reviewing my chart and proceded to tell me what was wrong with me. His bedside mannor was unprofessional and show a real disrespect toward me. This has to be the worst experience I have ever had at a medical facility.
I apologized to Mr Feitz about my mistake. He was actually not my patient, he was a patient of my partners and he had difficulty post-procedure and I went in to check on him and see if I could help. Inadvertently in the confusion of what was happening I called him by the wrong name.

Dr. Patel is a gentle soul, unassuming and very open. Mainly he is competent, knowledgeable, and compassionate. Although soft-spoken and gentle, he is very smart and knows his area of specialization. He is also a very generous man.

Dr Patel is very patient and understanding. If we don't understand anything, he takes the time to explain it so that we understand. We would highly recommend him to anyone in our situation.
