I see Dr. Patel for Crohn's Disease. I honestly feel that he watches over the "whole" of me. Caring for the kidneys, bones, and making sure he has results from all the other doctors. I feel completely confident he cares for me. PS Not thrilled with him when he says its time for another colonoscopy. LOL

Was a consultant while I was hospitalized for another matter. Dr was fine when I was in the hospital. Tried to follow up in I week after discharged per his instructions and had to call office 3 times before I got a call back, then had to wait 2.5 weeks to be seen. Was told at discharge to be seen again in office if any problems develop, I may need further surgery. Three mos later huge problems and he was too busy but I was able to see NP, Ordered upper GI series for the next day and said she would call me back within 48 hours. I waited 4 days and called and left message. Ended up leaving 4 messages over a period of 2.5 weeks and NP called me back and apologized for the delay, but she has been very busy. Never did see or talk with dr. I asked if the xrays indicated I would need further surgery and her only response was the word YES. end of conversation. Office is obviously chaotic and unprofessional and I was shuffled around unnecessarily when was very ill.

I had to see both Dr. Jafri and Dr. Patel due to a rather serious problem. I think highly of both, and would recommend either of them. I will look forward to working with them in the future. Dr. Patel gave me a very excellent description of the situation that I was facing. Very helpful and a very likable personality.

I met Dr. Patel while in the hospital and he understood exactly what I was trying to explain to him and could explain it to me better than I was explaining it to him. He is the first to understand and come up with a plan of action to help me. His bedside manner is wonderful and I have full confidence in his ability to treat me so that I can get back to my old self.
