This doctor is extremely smart and his resume shows it. He's also very nice. He is, however, the worst doctor I have ever had where communication was concerned. He told me nothing regarding my stress test. Also, I had to request the echo results to bring to my personal physician to review with me because Dr. Patel failed to do so. Needless to say, I requested another cardiologist for my future visit. Very disappointed.

I feel very in his care. He's knowledgeable and caring. Takes time to know you and your lifestyle. Recently I wasn't sure if I could take an over the counter medicine. Left message with his nurse. Dr Patel called Me back. I appreciate his caring ways and his medical expertise. Thank you Dr Patel and staff.

Excellent, compassionate MD, both on inpatient and outpatient basis. Takes time to listen and educate. Recommend highly

I had 3 blockages and one was 99% blockage, I was told by a VA doctor during a heart catheterization that I needed bypass. Thanks to Dr Patel, I didn't have to go through the dangers of open heart surgery especially being a Jehovah's Witness. He put stints in and a Ballon in another and I feel wonderful!! Thanks for extending my life for my husband, son, grand's and family. Ultimately skilled doctor that I have had the pleasure to meet. Very beautiful personality as well. Teria O Busby
