Poor physician, thinks he works in Beverley Hills. This physician will not see patients unless he is assured he will be paid. We have all co pays met for the year due to unfortunate health issues, however he does not care. We witnessed him be rude to an elderly patient who did not bring his medications with him, refusing to see him until he brought them to him.

Dr. Patel showed lack of interest when called to hospital were I was admitted. He was arrogance & condescending to myself and my wife like we inconvenienced him. He showed me poor quality of care, charged visit to insurance company as an office visit not in hospital stay. When I tried to resolve bill by making sure they billed primary & gap insurance as hospital and not office visit since it was the place we meet. It has been nothing but a nasty surprise that I find myself fighting this bill.
