Will never return to Dr. Patel! If you can figure out where her new location is; have been her patient for less than 8 months and she has moved the office 3 times! Never have I experienced such unprofessional medical care! Sent me to a specialist at SB Clinic who could not understand why I was there, ran unnecessary tests which I was never told the reasons for or what the results were. She is more concerned about sharing what is happening in her personal life than what her patient is there for. Complete waste of my time, money and my insurance companies expense! Still battling with double billing, incorrect coding....her staff, laughable. FIND ANOTHER DOCTOR!!!

Very professional office setting. Wonderful healthcare experience. Concerns are looked into in depth not just treated on the surface for a quick fix like so many people are looking for these days. This is a well organized office with a personal touch.

I would not. I'm a male person that said I have not had a checkup in over 25 years and I did not even get a prostrate exam. I was poked for something that she thought was necessary (higher liver enzymes), and my Cardiologist said that level was slightly above normal to him. Also, the office is very disorganized. Called about appointments I didn't have and the billing was messed up, too. Dr. Patel is personally sweet, but I don't trust her decisions and how she practices.

Besides being well traveled I have suffered all my adult life with a chronic illness. I've never seen a doctor who runs her practice the way Dr Patel does. She NEVER comes in with a computer or pen and paper. This probably contributed to the many mistakes she made in my husbands and my care. Only after words were exchanged did I get a series of 3 specialists who are now trying to improve my quality of life and making me aware of the serious mistakes that have been made. Be careful.

The medical field would be better off without Dr. Patel in it. She was grossly uncaring and rude. I thought her front office was bad until I met her. When her front office messed up some paperwork, she blamed the previous doctor who I know faxed over the information. The front office was also rude to the other patients in the waiting room.

Smita Patel has always taken the time needed to assess my health situation. she has a very caring attitude and works with you to resolve health issues. I am a senior and for the first time I have found a doctor who listens. she referred me to a cardiologist who is of the same caliber and they seem to work in conjunction to solve my issues eventhough she is with Unity and he is with South Bend Clinic. appointments are easy to get and I usually am in the exam room within 5-10 minutes of arriving
