Nancy G – Jan 16, 2021
My mid December appointment was with Dr. Patel's associate Dr. Nili and she was great with recommendations for me to help alleviate the pain. I have been going to Dr. Patel for several years and he has always been able to help me heal. Years of sports and several unfortunate accidents has made my ankles/feet a target for various aliments as I get up in years. Great staff to assist patients. I feel comfortable continuing to visit his offices since they are taking all precautions to keep everyone safe from COVID-19. Thank you for all you do to help me stay on my feet Dr. Patel and Dr. Nili. I recommend you often.

I love Dr. Patel. He has been taking care of my feet for many years. I have never waited long in the office to be seen. He is gentile and addresses al my foot problems and will give an explanation as to what is causing the problems. Every one I have referred has had a good experience. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Patel performed a bunionectomy on my left foot in 2007. I'm an avid walker and runner and I had no problems with my foot in all these years after surgery. I saw him recently to discuss a bunionectomy for my other, right foot. I trust Dr. Patel and would recommend him to any person with foot problems.

Customer service is great. Easy to make an appointment and when you arrive there’s not a long wait because they don’t over book appointments. This is important with my busy schedule. Dr Patel is wonderful and easy to communicate with when discussing my foot problems. He also relays my info to my general physician. I would highly recommend Dr Patel and his staff and have done so.

Dr. Patel and his staff are amazing! I can’t believe how smooth and pain free my recovery has been from bunion surgery. I’m upset I put it off for as long as I did after hearing so many negative misconceptions about bunion surgery and recovery, but this has been a breeze. His technique and demeanor shows in his practice. He is understanding and cares about his patients. I look forward to getting my other foot done. I never thought I would look forward to surgery, but the pain of a bunion far surpasses the pain of surgery and recovery. Wonderful practice!

Your thoughts matter to us, thanks for sharing!...Read More
I have been in extreme pain 24/7 for the past 15 years. Dr. Patel diagnosed acute plantar fasciitis, treated me with injections and custom shoe inserts. I am pain free except when I stand for prolonged periods and even then the pain disappears as soon as I put my feet up for 30 minutes. He created a miracle. I am eternally grateful to Dr. Patel. He changed my life.
