in Greenacres, FL |
Most thorough doctor I have ever been to, hands down! Explains in terms the layperson can understand, and not offended by questions. His staff are all bright, always cheerful, and helpful. I never had a doctor do such complete and comprehensive labs and referrals. I've had some lengthy waits, but that let's me know he takes whatever time is needed with patients, I know he has with me!

Dr Patel is an excellent doctor, one that I highly recommend. He very thorough, which I believe saved my life. Dr Patel scheduled an EKG and echocardiogram for me every year. He noticed an abnormality in the echocardiogram results this year and referred me to a cardiologist. Further tests showed that I had 5 blocked arteries for which I recently underwent successful bypass surgery. I was a walking heart attack waiting to happen and I truly believe Dr Patel's thoroughness saved my life.

I had a recent experience that verified Dr Patel is a really great doctor. I was out of town when I began having difficulty breathing. I called Dr Patel and told him I was going to drive home and would be in his office the next day. He told me "do not drive home; instead go immediately to the nearest Hospital Emergency and have a Chest Scan with Contrast done to Rule Out PE". The tests proved blood clot(s) had migrated to my lungs. Due to Dr Patel's quick response to my need, I am alive today.

We came to Dr. Patel's practice about 5 years ago. We are so grateful to have found a medical practitioner that not only cares about his patients health, but is also approachable, dedicated and has a great staff. Dr. Patel has really been blessing to us.
in Lake Worth, FL |
My husband & I have been a patient of Dr Patel since moving down to Florida 10 years ago. We find him to be very knowledgeable in the medical field. He has a charming personality, is very caring and we consider him not a just our doctor, but a friend. He is always available to answer any questions we have. He recently was very concerned that there was a trace of blood in my husbands urine. He recommended top notch specialists. Thankfully, he made sure that we followed through.

Dr. Patel will spend whatever time is necessary when you visit and is always compassionate and comforting. His manner reminds me of my childhood family doctor. His staff is always immediately responsive, efficient and pleasant. I have been a patient of his for 10 years now and am very pleased to be able to take this opportunity to heartily recommend him.

Dr Rahul Patel has been our family physician for many years. His knowledge, expertise and caring ways are what brought us to him and what make us continue to put our health in his capable hands. Dr Patel surrounds himself with excellent peoplE, both in his staff and referrals. Short story - thanks to dr Patels expertise my husband was properly diagnosed and treated for a life threatening problem. We thank him for as my husband would say "saving his life". Thank you dr Patel

I have been a patient of Doctor Rahul Patel for 3+ years. Many times I have been described as medically challenging because of my past medical conditions, the existing diagnoses and the necessary medications I need to take. All of these require careful monitoring by a Doctor who is willing, capable and patient. I am fortunate and healthier to have him. He takes the time to answer all my questions. Doctor Patel has support staff that are equally excellent. His nurse and office staff are A+!
in Wellington, FL |
We have been patients of Dr. Patel for eleven years and we have the utmost confidence in his ability and respect for him as a person. He and his staff are very thorough, caring, and professional. Allen & Karen Stutz

My family and I go to Dr.Patel he is professional and highly recommended. He is respected and know for his great care in the hospital and in the office.His staff are efficient and courteous. Always kind and with a smile. I would recommend him in a heart beat. His tenderness with my mom and her care when others were short and did not want to be bothered have earned him the utmost respect as not only a individual but as a esteemed doctor. Thank you Dr. Patel for all you have done. The Loves

DR Patel, SAVED MY LIFE (con't)... He professionally diagnosed the problem as a clogged artery in my neck.. turned out to be 98% Blocked.. DR Patel immediately sent me to an amazing vascular surgeon who made sure I would continue on to live my active lifestyle.. that was 2 1/2 years ago.. NO Stroke. , & at 71 LOVIN life. He was referred to me by a Physician friend of mine who aptly described DR Patel as the Doctor's Doctor. Extremely detailed, thorough, & sincere! Stan Epstein

At first when I meet Dr Patel I like him. I felt like he was a knowledgable and thorough physician. After my own experience and talking to other people would had seen him as there primary care doctor it has become clear to me that everyone in South Florida has Vitamin D deficiency. This is one lab value that has variation in what's high and low but he latched on to this number tells you to start taking vitamin d and to come back in 3 months for a recheck. This is ridiculous.

I had made an appointment to follow up on blood work results that weren't looking so good. After waiting 1hr and a half, I was taken for my vitals and co-payment of $15. I wasn't aware that I had an outstanding balance ($17) from an EKG that was done a few months earlier. All I had was a $20 bill. They took the payment made me wait some more and then said that Patel refused to see me if I didn't have the full payment. I guess the $12 difference is more important than my health.

The doctor is fine, however the waiting time is always over an hour from the appointment time. Very poor management of the appointments scheduling.
Great Doctor! The wait is a little long,but he takes his time with you and doesn't make you feel like your being rushed.He listens to you and cares!
