Very unsympathetic, waiting for you to break down - sadistic & mean esp if you say you're getting another dr, Also shady - only takes cash & will send you over to St Lukes to use the atm. i'VE NEVER seen this in a good dr. Dr Rajesh Shenava is your bet bet. Referred by my incredible heart Dr Ahmed. These are the kind of people who will totally take care of you & you can trust them for life.

HORRIBLE Nephrologist. Does not answer office phone. It does not matter how many times you call the office or doctor on call, you will not be taken care of or responded to. Dialysis patients are money makers for Dr.Patel. From reporting false visits to the clinic he’s supposed to come to weekly (you’ll early see him, he sends his NP (sometimes) and it’s very vague and brief. - very nice NP, but as a dialysis patient, I expect more than 5 minutes and asking “you good buddy”) and charging your in

My husband had a normal office visit with this dr, leaving with lab oders & a prescription. The script was improperly written for a common medication, therefore, the pharmacy could not fill it until they verified the dosage. In 3 days they could not get an appropriate answer from the drs. office. I called to try to clear up the misunderstanding. On the afternoon of the 3rd day, my husband received a call that the doctor NO LONGER WANTED him as a patient! WHAT kind of Dr does this????
