Dr. Patel has been my internist and cardiologist for the past 5 years. Best doctor and staff I've have ever known. Easy office to get to right off I77 and Sutton Rd also is a big plus since I hate driving in traffic.

I went in as a new patient this week. What a beautiful office - felt like a hotel lobby. Staff is very welcoming and friendly. Doctor was attentive kind and caring. This looks like an all-around great practice. My previous doctor's office was just the opposite - run down facility, rude staff, and always-in-a-rush doctor.

Wow, just wow! I called for an urgent visit and was seen that day -my previous doctor never had an appointment available. Dr. Patel saw me within 15 minutes of my appointment, treated the problem in another 15, and I was back on the road!

The staff at Patel Medical Clinic are the best. They are super nice and always eager to help me with my questions. My refills are handled usually the same day which is unheard of. Dr. Patel always gives me the best medical advice and is very well trained. Very excited about finding Patel Medical in Fort Mill.

Dr. Patel saw me with little wait time and was very tentative to listening to me talk about my medical issues last week for my appointment. Gave me honest and great feedback and didn’t order any labs or tests that were unnecessary and that’s so appreciated! He cares about me and I look forward to my follow up appointment and seeing how his treatment plan plays out, so far so good!

Dr. Patel saved by mother's life by performing a screening CT scan of her lungs and finding a cancer early enough to have life saving surgery. None of her other doctors even suggested getting this test. He took the time to explain the importance of having this test, even though my mother was reluctant initially. THANK YOU DR. PATEL!!

If I could give zero stars I would. To threaten my 80 yr old grandmother because she had questions about her health is unprofessional. Anyone who kicks her out for calling you rude and threatens to call the police because your sarcastic attitude was not appreciated.Will not have our business because you truly were rude.He does not care for the elderly avoid if possible.

initial appt was handled too quickly for ll disclosure of the reason for my visit to be shared. dr patel jumped to assumptions before the second sentence was completed of the reason for the visit. however, i followed through with the tests because of my insurance to get to the point of confirmation of my heart health. i made sure that i clarified that the assumption was incorrect, but i was disappointed in the approach for a circle of excellence provider.

Dr. Patel is very thorough and took his time explaining his plan of care with me. All of the ladies in the office are so polite and eager to help. I am always greeted with a smile when I walk in the door and Dr. Patel is always smiling too. I am so glad I found Dr. Patel and his practice!

I used to be a patient at one of the big hospital practices. Never again! My care was so disjointed. They would draw labs and never schedule a follow up appointment to go over my results, take 1 week or longer to refill my prescriptions, take days to get back to my phone calls. I could go on but I won't. Now I have found the perfect practice for me. It's like a concierge practice without the price. Dr. Patel actually knows who I am and is genuinely concerned about my health. Love it!

My grandmother has been a patient of dr. Patel's for many years. When she needed him most he turned his back on her! My grandmother was in need of hospice care, he advised my family that he needed to see her at the hospital. My grandmother is 94 yrs. old and fraile. we had to pay $500 for an ambulance. Because she is totally immobile. when we arrived at the hospital he was a no show. She was seen by an emergency room doctor and no one would sign off on hospice He doesn't care about the elderly
