Been seeing Dr Patel for a number of years and I’m very pleased with his ability. He’s helped with my back pain when no one else could. I have major pain flare ups every year or so and get epidurals from him. They help immensely. If you’re looking for an alternative to surgery to help with with pain I highly recommend seeing Dr Patel first.

My husband has been seeing Dr. Patel for some time. For the past 8 weeks, he has been trying to contact the office to get an appointment. He has left countless voicemails and nobody has called him back. This office is completely rude and unprofessional. There is no direct line to talk to someone in the office. STAY AWAY

Dr. Patel saved my quality of life. I could not be more thankful to have had him as my doctor. He was the FIRST doctor to take the time to explain my condition to me and plan a course of action. When the shots no longer worked and my insurance failed me in finding a surgeon, Dr. Patel found me one who would take my insurance. On his own time! I hope to never have to visit his office again but I would recommend him to ANYONE seeking a pain management doctor. Thank you, Dr. Patel. You're my hero!!

Excellent doctor. Has great patience and takes the time to listen to what you have to say. I have been going to Dr. Patel for a few years and his procedures have been life changing for me. I have experienced no issues in scheduling follow ups or procedures, actually his staff is extremely accommodating. I would highly recommend Dr. Patel and his staff.

I am a busy working mom with kids. I had terrible back pain from herniated disc and needed help right away. I was able to get an appointment the same day and the doctor was very knowledgeable and explained my options carefully. I opted for injections and they were scheduled very quickly. I am very happy with the care and attention I received. Staff was very friendly and helpful and great doctor. Highly recommend.

Excellent physician, cares about his patients, very knowledgeable and experienced. I was experiencing severe pain for many months that my other doctors couldn't figure out. Dr. Patel quickly diagnosed the problem and fixed my pain with a simple injection treatment. Dr. Patel always took the time to answer all my questions. Minimal wait to see the doctor, highly recommend this doctor to anyone in pain.

Liked Dr Patel very much. I've been calling his office for almost 3 weeks, several times a week, begging for a return call to set up an appointment and I get zero response. Had one procedure with him in November and need to have another and cant get through to anyone. Very unprofessional and devastating as a patient in pain.

I did not like his bedside manner. He barely looked me in the eyes while speaking to me. He looked at my mri's and X-Ray's in a room separate from where I sat therefore could not explain them to me. He did not show me on a model what he wanted to do. He went right to a procedure. I'm not comfortable with this doctor sticking any needles into my back. Furthermore, you cannot get a hold of him or his receptionist. I get a call back for every 8 messages I leave. don't waste your time.
