Dr Shashank Patel has always taken the time needed with me. He has an excellent bedside manner. Professional, and intelligent.
in Carrollton, GA |
I saw this provider in the emergency room last year after having complications from a tonsilectomy. After waiting for over an hour in a room, this man comes in EATING A SANDWICH. He then introduces himself to myself and my parents with food in his mouth. After asking my parents what was going on (I could not speak) he leaves for a long while. After returning, he says that he has to contact the doctor that performed my surgery to see what he should do. He was absolutely awful and no help!

Listens to what I have to say. Recommends and prescribes relevant treatment. Start with moderate treatment and then prescribes stronger prescriptions or treatment as necessary. Recommends seeing a specialist when he thinks this is necessary.

Dr. Patel is awesome. How ever the front office staff are rude and extremely unprofessional. Desperately need to learn customer service skills.
in Gaithersburg, MD |
