I had a horrible experience. Dr Patel rushed my appointment. Showed no signs of empathy or care . Told me she would return to the room and never came back. I never got a goodbye . I’m a woman of color and I don’t know why I was treated like I was but she was very cold to me. If you want a friendly, warm doctor don’t choose her.

Been a patient with Dr Patel the past two years. Had issues with her front desk coding the testing to my insurance using the wrong code. Finally got it sorted after many hours spent. Had an issue again recently and the admin told me I shouldn't come to the office anymore because she didn't want to deal with my insurance. She also said the same during COVID that she didn't want me to do any testing with their office because they didn't want to deal with insurance since the COVID testing was new, and she wasn't sure what the billing codes were. I contacted my insurance to ask what the lab codes for COVID were but they wouldn't give it to me saying it was the doctors responsibility to know and they have the resources to find it. However, the admin at the doctors office didn't know and wasn't willing to figure it out as part of her job.

I absolutely adore Dr. Patel. I had called 4 doctors offices desperately trying to have my daughter seen and was turned away from them all because we had just moved to the area and were "new patients". They got us in and were able to see us without a lot of wait time. I then became her patient as well. She always listens to my concerns and gives them the appropriate amount of attention. I've been to her office quite a few times and only once did I have to wait a long time which is a great!

As the insurance carrier changed on my job in 2017, I needed a doctor that accepted the new insurance. I searched and found Dr. Pital. She exhibits great bedtime manners, shows compassion and interest in me as a patient. The location in Spring is very convenient as it is near my home and her office in Memorial City is very near my workplace! As a result, I have referred 2 of my coworkers to her and they just love her as well!!

Very attentive. She is a very caring person, who, after all of the years she's practiced, still have a love and passion for her field. I definitely recommend her! The only downside to Spring Medical associates is that no one ever seems to answer the phone! One day I called to schedule an appointment during normal business hours, and the phone just rang and rang. I called them literally more times than I can remember! Scheduling is a bit of an issue, but Dr. Patel Shital is an amazing person!

Dr. Patel is an Awesome Doctor!! However, the staff needs improvement. Always get sent to voicemail and never can get in touch with anyone sometimes. There are some really nice ones and Kella in the front is very sweet. Hopefully they can improve on the phone thing and attitudes as well.
