    Dr. Rishi Patel has helped me tremendously with my cardiac challenges. I have found him to be very patient, caring, knowledgeable, helpful and professional. I actually look forward to my visits with him because he can answer all my questions. He is outstanding and I am fortunate to have him as my doctor. Dr. Patel is particularly good at explaining complex problems, e.g., atrial fibrillation, cardiac bypass procedures, and diet/exercise options.

    This doctor is abrupt, dismissive, indifferent and arrogant. I had a stress test. Because I cannot comfortably walk fast it was aborted. He was not willing to see me as a person. He could have adjusted the method to accommodate my abilities. I am not at all at ease with treadmills. The treadmill could have been tilted up and the pace slower, but still arduous enough to raise my heart rate. As it is I had a half test not a whole one. The technician was wonderful; the doctor the worst.

    So many things were done incorrectly that an overnight procedure resulted in 5 days in the hospital I have the impression that the doctor did not review my record prior to the procedure. I am a stage 4 bullous emphysema patient with hypersensitivity to medication. Several anasthetics and medications were ordered, resulting in a lung collapse and I was taken to ICU. I especially think that respiratory monitoring should have been ordered not just cardiac telemetry.
