      Goes into full detail what he will be doing. Answers all questions in detail in “Non Medical” terminology. Puts the patient at ease. Peter Brausch

      Dr. Patel is amazing! He suspected I could have pancreatic cancer and got me to the right oncologist right away. He was right, and his gut feeling saved my life!
