He caused irreparable anxiety by telling me my back problem would cut my spine. I have a history of bipolar anxiety and this made it much worse.

Dr. Patel did not listen well to what I was telling him, at times jumping to incorrect conclusions. He was frustrated when I couldn't tell him the Latin name of the small, non-cancerous polyp that was removed from my colon 3 yrs ago. When I told him the local gastroenterologist's name who operated on me he said he hadn't heard of him; he suspected I got the name wrong. He made fun of the trusted family doctor I had been going to for many years.

Had the unfortunate experience of 4 hospital ICU stays in 2017. Had the even greater unfortunate luck of having this "poor excuse" of a doctor? as my hospital floor internist--all 4 times! SCARIEST DR. EVER!! *Refused to "listen" on *any level, acts like he knows everything, *a very condescending, *rude, *arrogant, *antagonist! Referred to "my" right lung as *left lung!..?? Also *condescendingly used "semantics" as differentiating an IV catheter vs. IV cannula. Do *NOT like this DR?--AT ALL!

Don't let the MD after his name fool you. He is a vapid, helpless, incompetent person. His passive nature leads to the failure of completion in care for his patients as I am witnessing currently. I have a relative that just sat in the hospital for awhile and is in worse condition than he was before he started in Patel's care. Alive, but deteriorating and now he will be transferred somewhere that will achieve what Patel could not. That man has a weak soul. I urge you to use any other doctor.

He's a total idiot. I was in Palm Bay hospital on 3/8/2017 after striking my head. I wondered why my jaw and back teeth hurt so bad. He said it was a bad tooth. I explained I just had my teeth cleaned / checked a week earlier that it must be something else. He argued intensely, told my wife that she knows NOTHING and I need a dentist. After release, I went to my dentist and we discovered that there was trauma to the TMJ joints. Treated it with a brace and medications.

Chose him as my new PCP last year and will never go back to him. Picked him because he was close to me and was able to get an appointment on the same day. My partner and I went for our yearly physicals. We are clean, respectful, discreet and non drug users but he treated us like diseased drug addicts. It was obvious he was uncomfortable and wanted us out of there as soon as possible. He was dismissive and unfriendly.

Every time i get admitted to the hospital due to sickle cell anemia Dr.Patel is very rude he puts his patients needs last , he doesn't show any compassion towards patients. He's always in rush so he never go over discharge instructions with patients, i would highly recommend patients with serious health issues to avoid Dr.Patel if u want the proper care
