I had a colonoscopy and Dr PH Patel did an awesome job. He meet with me before the procedure and asked if I had any questions. After the procedure he gave me my results and asked if I had any questions. I appreciated his readiness to provide service and he did a great job

I went to Dr. Patel originally because I had had severe every day diarrhea for over two years. Did colonoscopy, endoscope, and came back and said it was JUST irritable bowl take some Imodium!! Like I had not already done this for over two years. I told him it was NOT irritable bowl, did not have same symptoms (it never went away). Then gave me a $2,000 prescription insurance did not cover. I went to Emory, they LOOKED at my chart unlike Dr. Patel, no gallbladder they gave me $6.00 prescription!
