This was the most unprofessional office I have ever been to. 3 separate times my uncle was scheduled for an appointment only to sit in an office waiting room for 3hrs or longer and the doctor isn't even in the area. Today my uncle had an appointment scheduled for 2:15pm, I walked him to the waiting area, went to have a bite to eat and returned at 3:07 to see my uncle still sitting where I left him. I ask the receptionist how much longer, only to hear once again the doctor isnt there. Worst place

My son was hospitalized in DePaul for five days ICU. The nurses called Dr. Patel (assigned to my son) for four days leaving messages for a consult. Never heard from him. The day after discharge he called after I filed a complaint with the hospital. Apologized - said he was busy - and agreed to continue seeing my son as a courtesy for his lack of communication. I've left 5 messages with his office five days now - no return call not even from a staff member- if you need help find someone else.

I have been with Dr. Patel for at least five years. He is the only psychiatrist I have ever trusted and he listens to me. He is honest and smart and he memory is incredible. He takes the time to listen to me. So if I have to wait in his (way to small) waiting room for over an hour past my appointment I don't care. I know hes just giving people the time they need. I just bring a book.
