Thank you Dr. Patel! I’m back playing pickle ball at a competitive level. I had a meniscus root tear that was stitched back into place instead of just being cut out. It was well worth the rehab as my knee feels 100% now!

Top notch experience! Didn't have to wait and got to see an expert in Dr. Patel. He diagnosed my problem and said I didn't need surgery. I'm already feeling better 1 week after the injection and physical therapy. Thank you Dr. Patel!

Very likely to recommend him to others. This section is very vague and leaves out the reason for it. We have already answered these parts earlier.

Amazing surgeon and doctor! My knee was unstable after an old injury and other doctors could not figure it out and ordered multiple MRIs. Dr. Patel spent a lot of time with me and by comparing both my knees figured out what was wrong. I'm six months out from my surgery and feel great! Thank you!!

My whole experience with Dr. Patel and staff was excellent. Upon learning that the doctor didn't perform the surgery I needed for my knee, I was disappointed to say the least. But instead of sending me on my way, he referred me to another notable surgeon within the group experienced in the surgery I need. Typically it could take weeks to get an appointment, but he made sure that I was on the doctor's schedule asap (the next morning). This was greatly appreciated, as I am and have been (for months) in a lot of pain and can't walk. I'm confident and optimistic now, that will soon change! Many thanks to Dr. Patel and his staff.
