Dr Patel is very attentive, offers his opinion, listens to what I think, and sometime does what I want. He is the expert, so ultimately, I trust him and I do his recommendations. He always makes me smile about something.

Visiting Dr. Patel is like visiting the family member. I feel like he is a big brother monitoring my health and guiding me to the right direction. He always makes me comfortable to share my health issues and the excellent part is he takes his time to listen everything I have to say. He goes above and beyond not just to treat the existing health issue but also guide patient how to prevent it in future.
