Very compassionate and caring. You never feel like he is in a hurry when you talk to him and he patiently answers all your questions.

Dr Patel is one of the few caring dr left in the medical field. I feel he could tell what I was thinking because he answered my questions in great detail before I had a chance to ask. After leaving his office I felt confident about my plan of care just knowing I had options Thank you Dr Petal for taking time and and actually listening To my concerns.

Dr. Patel was approachable and thorough. When I left I felt he had answered my questions and there was a plan in place for my care .

I would recommend Dr. Patel to all of my family and friends. He listens to you when you are talking to him. He is very good at explaining what's going on in layman's terms. I saw him for pre-surgery exam and after seeing my chart of vitals, which were very good. He asked me many questions about how I was feeling (tired, fatigue, etc) he called the hospital and had me admitted right then. The next morning I had an angiography and he found it 1 of my arteries was 95% blocked. He saved my life.

FINALLY a dr who actually listens! One who doesn't push all the latest prescriptions, who explains the physiology of your ailment, who spends TIME with his patients and doesn't leave until he knows you are satisfied with your care and your questions are answered.

Dr. Patel is a wonderful, caring Cardiologist. When I was in the hospital post lung surgery and had some cardio issues, he visited me two times a day and checked on my progress. My family and I trusted him with my care and he went above and beyond to help us. I highly recommend Dr. Patel.
