Patient Comments (5)
Wilmette, IL |
She was horrible. At first I was hopeful because she spent a good half an hour with me. I am having sleep issues and she prescribed a new drug that I have not tried I have tried seven other drugs. It did not work and she said sorry that's all I can do for you you need psychiatric help. Horrible bedside manner

Dr. Patel diagnosed me with a rare neurological sleep disorder that the first neurologist I saw missed. She is integrative, so she spends a lot of time asking me questions about my lifestyle, and offers suggestions to reduce my need for the drug she's prescribed for my disorder. I find her to be warm, caring and intelligent. I've seen her for about 5 years, and I see her every six months. One tip--if you're more than 5 minutes late, she might not be able to see you. She's always on time.

I went to this doctor for insomnia and she was very cold and not empathetic. She did not explain the results of the sleep study to me as she did not want a follow up appointment. The NorthShore system uses a computer system where the doctors frantically type everything in that you tell them so you get little time to actually have a useful conversation about your condition with them because they are so busy typing away.

One of the best doctors I've ever experienced!!! Great listener. Super friendly and thoroughly professional.
