What People Say About Dr. Prashant Patel, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I went to see Dr Patel about insomnia. He is very arrogant and ignored everything I had to say and tried to convince me I needed a CPAP machine even before testing. When you don’t agree with him about the results he tries to make you agree with him by scaring you into thinking you will die without the machine. He seems more concerned with getting everyone on CPAP even if it is not needed so he can keep an income coming in. Once you are on CPAP you can never get off.

Dr. Patel shows concern for my well being and always offers solutions to improve my health ! The office reception staff make you feel welcome,and most importantly the nurses are very considerate as to your concerns and are always cheerful! A Dr. may have all the medical knowledge needed but it’s most important that you feel comfortable while you’re visiting the office and that means they are very important also !

Dr. Patel was the first doctor to sit down and listen to my symptoms. He made a diagnosis that no others had mentioned and prescribed medication accordingly. He scheduled a followup visit and was truly concerned about my condition and even suggested further testing if I wanted to be reassured. I did not feel rushed and highly recommend Dr. Patel. He also made recommendations for other doctors for other specialties and I followed up with them who were also top quality doctors.
