Fantastic surgeon easy to talk too. He listens and explains everything. I was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer 5 years ago because of the surgery I am cancer free. The surgery saved my life. I would highly recommend Dr. Patankar??

Dr. Patankar is my personal miracle worker. He is personable, engaging, and brought a calm but clear focus to the issues being faced. He is amazing. I had full confidence in his abilities and had no issue placing my life in his skilled hands.

Excessively long wait times. After having surgery you really don' t want to have to sit and wait over an hour past your appointment time to have your post op appointment . The least they could do is call and let you know and have you come in later instead of the added pain of having to sit and wait to be seen. Also Dr Patanker failed to explain exactly how difficult a recovery from this surgery is. Also after waiting 50 minutes past my time he spent 5 minutes with me so why the long wait?
