This man is obviously very smart, but I would never go back to him. I knew something had been wrong with me for awhile and he told me it was acid reflux. I kept telling him I knew something else was wrong, but he treated me like I was completely stupid and didn't want to answer questions. After a trip to URGENT CARE(!), they found out I had huge abscesses on my tonsils. I had to get them removed. I don't understand how an experienced ENT could miss something like that. Unacceptable.

I'm sure Patel had a high GPA, MCAT scores to get into medical school and was probably a good student in the basic sciences. But he lacks the compassion and interpersonal skills to be a true physician. He is more like a technician. If that's all you need, you'll be fine. But if you are looking for someone to take the time to answer your questions, you'll be disappointed, He might have been pressured into medicine and now doesn't like his job or his patients. Very sad kind of person to be an M.D

Most attentive and knowledgeable doctor. I had great results with multiple procedures. He and his staff are wonderful!!!! Can honestly recommend him for any facial surgery you are considering. I initially went to a Saturday seminar and really liked what he had to say.....made an appointment on the spot!! He does fabulous work.....call now because he is busy and once you decide on a procedure you don't want to wait!!! His staff is wonderful and there is no pressure...they listen to you.
