My son has seen Dr. Patel since he was born. He is very intelligent and to the point. Dr. Patel is one of the last doctors that still answer their own phone. He is very efficient yet doesn't take away from the level of care. He is top notch!

We think he is the BEST.Very straight forward and to the point.My children love him and his staff.He does not give antibiotics or any medicine to make us happy.This is what i like.Refering to a specialist is done by himself.Who does that these days!!!!!!.His office is always on time and very efficient.We love him to death.

My child was a patient of his and he always treated her poorly. When I tried to make her next appointment he refused to see her because I had taken her to Columbus to see specialist for her other conditions. Mind you, she had been transferred from a local hospital to nationwide children's so it's not like I even had a choice! He has horrible bed side manner and always made my child cry!

I tried to switch my 14 month old son to dr. Patel today due to his current doctor getting ready to retire I was asked what insurance my baby had I replied Coventry care which is listed as accepted insurance at that comment the man very rudely loudly snapped that they don't take the medical card I will warm everyone I know in any tax bracket away from these mean people
