Patient Comments (4)
in Sicklerville, NJ` |
Let's start with I am NOT a "mamby pamby" person who was looking for drugs. I HATE drugs, so quite the contrary. After 7 years as a patient, I am DONE. I recently discovered he had no idea what he was even treating me for yet alone my name. The average wait time is an hour and a half. He often ignores questions as if he never even heard you speak. He is only interested in writing as many scripts as he can. End of story. If you value your sanity, stay away!

I had been a patient of Dr Patel for several years-and at each appointment he asks me my name. As if he's never met me before. He also ignores questions- literally does not acknowledge That I said anything. And I don't feel he is sympathetic or wants to hear how I was am actually doing. Seemed like he just wanted to write a script with as little effort as possible and move on to the next patient His partner Dr Harb seems to be much more caring and compassionate. Wish I could switch to Dr barb

I have been a patient of Dr. Patel since 2010 he isn't only my doctor he has become my friend and he is the man I credit for saving my life. He is a no nonsense man and most of these mamby pambys writing negative reviews are angry because he won't Jist write a script for those people seeking certain medications.

This Dr. is should not be treating patients. He had a stack of files on the desk and I was treated like the next in the stack. He didn't listen to my issues or concerns. I was anxious and depressed due major health problems. He insisted i was bipolar and handed me a stack of scripts. This entire session lasted the most 10 minutes. I had 6 or more appointments with him to see if things would change. No such luck, every visit was the same. I went to a different Dr. after that.
