      Dr. Patel was very communicative - explaining things to me. I was happy with his treatments.
      in Mesa, AZ |
      He was so nice to my parents, he took his time and was kind and warm. I really appreciated the care he provided, it is not common to have a doctor take this much time.
      in Phoenix, AZ |
      Dr. Patel has taken care of my wife's extremely complex 26 year long glaucoma case since 2012 and I chose him to monitor and advise me on my own elevating eye pressures in 2015. He has both excellent technical knowledge and patient centered personality...never too busy to take time to explain his findings and recommendations and answer all our questions. He has come through for us in both normal checkups and times of crisis for which we much appreciate. His assistant, Becky, is excellent too!
