He has changed my life completely. I went from thinking about how I would take my life everyday into feeling control and rationalization. He takes his time and doesn't over-medicate people to hope one of the multiple drugs works. Good things come with time and Patel holds a lantern while accompanying people through the dark paths of their minds. Dr. Patel's knowledge is beyond any other psychiatrist I have been to. If you are considering going to him I hope this post will aid your decision. Thank you.

Dr. Patel is the most knowledgeable and professional psychiatrist I’ve been to, and I’ve had to go since a car accident In 2002 where I was a passenger. I honestly have never been so well respected and taken care of. I will alway go to him. He definitely knows the psychiatrist field from top to bottom and is very thorough. He isn’t satisfied until he knows you are okay and happy.

Thanks to his wife, acting as receptionist one Christmas Eve, Dr Patel saw me as an emergency & saved my life. My dr quit prescribing my medication without any notice. That Christmas Eve, he saw me & continued my medication I had been on for 15 years. Saving me!!

he's perfect for anyone who has been through years of counseling, therapy,group meetings,etc. he listens to my issues while understanding im about 11 years through counseling that just brings up past emotions. he listens and replies without judgment or ridicule. I have been calling his office since hurricane Michael. straight to a voice mail that cant accept new messages. what do I do!?

Dr. Patel is an excellent psychiatrist and has seen members of my family who live in Texas, NYC and in Fort Lauderdale, as well as myself. I am a Behavioral Health provider and refer to him frequently. Could not have raised my gifted ADHD/ADD children as a single parent without his wisdom. His psychopharmacological skills are unsurpassed. He responds to urgent requests in a kind and professional manner. I have referred patients to him for 20+ years with one one dissatisfied.
