I recently saw Dr. Patel for the first time, and was very impressed. She is a great listener, and gave me a thorough examination. Her academic credentials are superb, and her bedside manner is also excellent. I have no doubt she is one of the top board certified ENT specialists in the entire Chicago area.

Dr. Riddhi Patel is a great ENT doctor! She is very talented, extremely caring, and super knowledgeable in her specialty! She took the time to explain my condition in an easy to understand way & addressed all of my worries/concerns. She even helped me get a needed biopsy scheduled & was able to get me squeezed into a booked schedule by requesting the appointment while I was in her office. I truly felt like she developed a plan for me & helped me along the way. I highly recommend this doctor!
