HE FIX MY LEG & THE NEXT DAY I WAS WALKING A ROUND WITHOUT ANY PAIN IN IT AT ALL. SOMETHING I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO DO FOR TWO YEARS ,( WHY BECAUSE I WAS AFRAID OF DOCTORS ) HE IS THE BEST
Plano, TX |
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!
