Patient Comments (1)
in Bristol, Pa |
After being diagnosed with respiratory failure due to scoliosis, he offered no help, and told me I was going to die. After seeking a second opinion at Temple, not only was I offered help, but was told I am not going to die, and will live a normal life with proper medication. I DO NOT RECOMMEND DR PATEL.
