I cannot begin to express my satisfaction with the staff. From the front desk, to the nurses, and Dr. Patel. Each and every one of them was courteous, professional, and made my visit as comfortable as they possibly could. Dr.Patel has great bedside manner, and look forward to seeing him for my follow up!

I recommend Dr. Patel as one of the most outstanding physicians I have ever encountered in my 72 years. He is extremely intelligent and compassionate and speaks to his patients in a caring way which is easy to understand as a layman. He encourages you to ask questions so that there is a clear dialogue between patient and physician. It is obvious that he truly cares about his patients as demonstrated by his very warm personality. He is the best!
