Dr. Patel was very good at explaining my injury to me so that I could understand what he was saying. I would highly recommend him to any of my friends to see for treatment.

After doing some research and working with my insurance provider I decided to choose Dr. Patel. From day one it was easy to tell that I was going to have a great experience moving forward. I suffered a knee injury which resulted in having my ACL replaced. Dr. Patel and his staff always answered my questions and made me feel comfortable before and after the surgery. Dr. Patel did an excellent job with not only the surgery but every one of our meetings. 10/10!

The experience we had at Dr. Patel's office has been nothing less than outstanding. The staff is courteous and friendly. Dt. Patel explores all options and takes the time to present and explain them in language that you can understand, and lets you consider those that will provide the best results. We never felt pressured into accepting extreme treatments. He is open to all questions and answers them completely, and cares about the best outcome for the patient.

I'm very happy with Dr. Savan Patel's care. He is the best doctor that's taken care of me and he saved my life with my knee surgery. He explained all the medical procedures very well and I am extremely pleased with everything he's done. I highly recommend him as an orthopedic surgeon.

After my 7th patella dislocation MRI scan showed a tear in ligament. He just told me to continue physical therapy and that surgery is an option but he would rather wait and see “whether the dislocation would happen again.” I talked to 2 other doctors telling me that a surgery is a no-brainer considering the torn ligament and number of dislocations I had before. He is superficial in giving information & just didn’t seem too interested in helping. Would NOT recommend. He still has a lot to learn.

I shattered my ankle and Dr Patel put it back together. I am very happy with the work he did to help me recover, starting with the surgery and subsequent guidance to get back to 100 percent. I highly recommend Dr Savin.
in Arlington Heights, IL |
Dr. Patel was the surgeon assigned to me due to fractures in my ankle. I have found him to be extremely competent and readily accessible. He is willing to spend as much time as necessary to answer my questions. He truly seems to enjoy his work. His staff is excellent as well, especially his nurse, Eva, who displays compassion and caring in all that she does. Overall I would highly recommend Dr. Patel. He is a fine young surgeon with a brilliant career ahead of him.
Buffalo Grove, IL |
My daughter broke her arm and we were told in the ER that she needed surgery. We met Dr. Patel in the ER and he performed her surgery on her arm and placed 3 pins around her elbow. Dr. Patel was professional and made all of us feel at ease with the process. My daughter is only 7 and she felt very comfortable during each appt with Dr. Patel.

He fallowed my progress and didn't rush it allowing me to heal properly. All appointments were made to my convinients. I was always seen right away and nessesery paper work was filled and faxed to my employe in timely manner That make my recovery less stresful.
