Dr. Patel has taken great care of me over the years. He manages my heart and my diabetes. I like his staff - they are so friendly!

Dr. Patel is a very professional and caring doctor. I trust him completely with my care.

I have been trying to minimize the number of doctors I have to see. It seems like once I was referred to a specialist, I was encouraged to see those specialists for life. I was seeing over 5 different physicians a year. When I started seeing Dr. Patel, he was able to manage most of my conditions, and given that he practices both Internal Medicine and Cardiology was a big plus as well. Now I only have to see two different doctors a year! And I feel I am getting better care overall.

Smart doc. Great staff. Beautiful office. Can't get a better medical office.

I am sick and tired of going into a physician practice with good insurance to be seen only by a physician assistant or nurse practitioner. Now we all know that physicians go through vigorous training and have more knowledge than a PA or NP. At Patel Medical Clinic, I get great care since I only see Dr. Patel for all of my visits. He does not employ any PA or NP because he told me he wants to provide only the best care for all of his patients. All practices should follow Dr. Patel's lead!!
Patel Medical Clinic is one of the best practices I have been a patient at. The front desk is so friendly and eager to help with any concerns. The staff that takes patients to the exam rooms are very professional and take their time reviewing my meds and taking care of any refills I need. When I had a billing question, I got prompt and accurate assistance from the billing department. Put all this together along with a super knowledgeable and caring physician, and you have a great practice.

Dr. Patel is the best doctor I have ever known. He is very caring and intelligent, and spends time with his patients. He is meticulous about going over every detail of my health. And you can not get a better trained doctor - just look at his credentials. Seeing Dr. Patel greatly improved my health so I can live better and hopefully longer!!

Dr. S Patel is the smartest physician that I have found. He trained at Johns Hopkins and Harvard and really knows his stuff. He takes time to explain my conditions and never seems in a rush. I feel he has improved my health immensely and gave me more years to live. You can’t ask for more from your doctor.

Dr. Shilpesh Patel is one of the best physicians I have ever come across. I had very difficult to control diabetes and high blood pressure that several other doctors could not control properly. Dr. S Patel had my conditions under excellent control within a matter of 3 months. He explains things very well and truly cares about my well being. He is the “go-to-doctor” in the region for patients with difficult and challenging medical problems.
