    I seldom write reviews but I must for Dr. Patel. Without a doubt, I must tell you, this guy is a class act! I am so blessed to have been in his care. He truly cares about his patients, he listens, he oversees every aspect of your care and has a wonderful staff. Going through treatment is anything but fun, however when you walk through the doors every day you feel like family. I am forever grateful for the care, attention and support I received.
