What People Say About Dr. Samir Patel, DO

Dr. Samir Patel is a very knowledgeable and capable pain physician with good bedside manners. He took care of a pain syndrome I had after two separate surgeries three years apart. Dr. Patel was attentive to my concerns and answered questions to ensure my understanding of the procedure he performed beforehand. I would not hesitate to see Dr. Patel again or recommend him to family or friends.

I am an overweight woman who is having trouble with my knee. I was referred to Dr. Patel by my surgeon to see if a genicular block would help my pain. During my first visit a majority of the time was spent shaming me for my weight and pushing me to give him the number of pounds I was going to lose. The second visit was my first and last genicular block test. He and his assistant spent a little more time telling me that I wasn't in pain during the procedure and it shouldn't hurt. I have never been disrespected like this in all of my years of seeing doctors. Beyond all of that, the block not only didn't work but produced more pain for me to endure. This procedure is not something I would ever do again.

I have been seeing Doctor Patel for years. I have stage 4 cancer. He is a consummate professional and takes wonderful care of me. I couldn't ask for a more intelligent, empathetic and professional Doctor.

Excellent care for pain. Explained why I was having pain by using skeletal models, etc. when I understood my pain it was easier to cope. Physical therapy was the referral but my pain was actually a healing process....as Dr. Patel explained. We are very fortunate to have Dr. Patel in Tucson!

Dr Patel is an excellent physician. I was in pain and was recommended to this Dr by my family physician recently. I was hesitant and apprehensive before my first appointment but after speaking with Dr Patel all my anxieties was relieved. He is very professional, patient and kind. My first pain injection was perfect. He is definitely worth the wait. He has made my life pain free without surgery. I am able to ride my bicycle for 5 miles three times a week without any pain.

Had my first appointment at 8:30am; arrived at 8:20am to complete 20 minutes of paperwork. Was not called until 9:40am. No explanation given for being 70 minutes behind schedule so early in day.
