      Had an appt. with Dr. Patel last wk for back pain. He would say that I'm a difficult patient (retired RN). But he patiently answered all my questions precisely and offered options. After an xray and two MRI's, I was found to have a fracture at L3 and a hemangioma at T12.. so a CT has been ordered for more details of T12. I'm have difficulty with my insurance but his office and the Neuromedical Center Imaging departments are helping me with that. Yes, I will continue to see Dr. Patel.

      If it was not for Dr. Patel, I would not be able to work or do some things that I enjoy. Thanks so much for your patience with my injury.

      I have worked with Dr. Patel for the past few years to manage the pain in my back. The help he has provided me and the procedures done have given me back enjoyment in my life. I have recommended him to many friends and family memebers because I know I can trust him to care as much about them as he has for me. Top notch doctor in my opinion.
