What People Say About Dr. Rajnikant Patel, MD

Dr. Patel saved my life and I will be forever grateful. He had gone way beyond to help me. He even came to my Hosp. Room and put an IV in cause the Nurses tried 12 times and could not get a vein. Dr. Patel had Laura, his MA, bring a Doppler in and he found a good vein and it went right in. He also removed a lymphoma on my shoulder, never hurt and healed very fast. I would recommend Dr. Patel to everyone who needs surgery
