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.

Amazing!!!, the kind of doctor that knows about your problem without you going in to detail, that means he know his job perfect. 150% knowledge about a real genius. the electrician of the body I have no words to thanks him for helping me.
in Dover, NJ |
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.
in Bridgewater |
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.
