My husband and I have been going to Dr. Patel for several years now. I would highly recommend Dr. Patel to anyone needing a friendly caring doctor. After seeing the nurse to update your file with meds etc. you are then taken directly to his office to discuss your bloodwork. He is very knowledgeable and goes over any questions you may have and I don't feel rushed. I feel going into his office is more personable than him coming into the exam room. Thanks Dr. Patel for being such a Great Dr.

They wanted a $50 deposit just to make an appointment!

I always saw an assistant and never Dr. Patel. They gave my name and contact information to a medicine sales rep without my permission. I would see personal papers I gave them as well as other patients information laying haphazardly around the office for other patients to see. Very unprofessional office. I should have never gone back after the first visit. I would not recommend this office.

I went to there office twice already but never met Dr Patel only the Nurse Practitioner. I am a new patient and I was not reviewed by the Doctor, I felt strange and when I asked why is that the Dr is not meeting the patient the nurse mentioned that he will meet next time. When I went back again I still only met the Nurse Practitioner. I am never going back to this practice, they charges Doctors Rate for a Nurse. I never saw such practice till date. Overly extremely dissatisfied
