I will not reiterate what the other reviewers have said about Dr. Patel. They covered all those bases better than I could have done. I share my experience with Dr. Patel on a different realm. Since mere words cannot express being a patient of Dr. Patel’s, I am inspired to creative license borrowing from 1 Corinthians 13: Dr. Patel is patient and kind. He does not boast, and is not proud. He honors everyone, is not self-seeking, nor easily angered or keeps no record of wrongs. He rejoices with the truth and shares it with you. Dr. Patel always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. If he sounds like love to you, he is. If your soul is drawn to him, you will discover at part of heaven on earth.

Dr Patel treats the patient not the condition. He is compassionately straight forward. He is the best physician I have ever had in my entire life.?? All of the staff at FL Cancer Specialist are the cream of the crop. The care is top of the line and they are genuinely kind, competent and professional. I love how they have helped me through this journey. Simply put, I love them.

Dr. Patel has been the most compassionate and knowledgeable doctor a cancer patient could have. I was diagnosed with a very rare cancer and he has diligently worked to find the best treatment for me which included a clinical trial in Sarasota. Although I’m no longer in the trial it was beneficial to getting me where I am today. I know without Dr Patel I would not be here today. I’m so blessed to have him as my Oncologist and my friend. Thank you Dr. Patel...

It was a great visit! Dr. Patel always takes as much time as necessary for us to understand what is going on with the disease. He was able to diagnose my rare cancer when no one else could. He personally calls me at home if the blood work shows a change in treatment is required. Could not ask for a better doctor.

Dr. Patel saved my life. I was seeing another Doctor here in Tallahassee. My wife and son insisted that I get another opinion. My son knew Dr. Patel and go me an appointment. I knew more about my leukemia after a 20 minute conversation than I had learned in the previous three years. Words can never express my respect and appreciation of Dr. Patel. I have been seeing him for five years and I continue to improve. Thank God for him.

Dr. Patel was my mom's oncologist for 6 years. When she was first diagnosed in 2011 until she passed 2017. He picked the perfect surgeon & radiation oncologist. From her initial diagnosis until the end, he was the most compassionate, honest, sincere physician. My mom loved him & the staff at FL Cancer Specialists. At the end when her tumor markers were rising again and she weighed 72 lbs, he was compassionate enough to refrain from more treatments and to help my mom transition to Hospice.

Dr. Patel explained everything to me. He was patient and kind. And very knowledgeable. If it wasn't for him knowing what he does as an oncologist, my surgeon wanted me to go through chemotherapy, which I did not need. If you want a doctor who listens and cares, Dr. Patel is the doctor you want.
