She is one of the most kind, empathetic, and above all knowledgeable physicians around. She takes the time to hear out your problems and works tirelessly until a solution is found. I would recommend her without hesitation to any of my friends. If I have any problems with my eyes again in the future, I'm going straight back to her.

I recently had an emergent situation and my usual doctor was in surgery so could not see me. Dr. Patel was available and so I went to see her. She was kind and caring and immediately could see the urgency of my problem. She diagnosed and treated it and closely followed my progress until it was resolved. Each visit she was just as thorough and she listened to my concerns. I am happy she has joined my usual doctors practice and would have no hesitation going to her for anything.
