What People Say About Dr. Sonal Patel, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I am so thankful for Dr. Patel. She is the most patient, intelligent and caring doctor that I have ever met - I truly mean that. She never makes me feel like my hundreds of questions are annoying. She answers my questions in a way that I can understand (aka non-medical verbiage). In the absolute scariest time of my life, she not only medically treated me but reassured me that we would work together to do whatever is possible.... and she followed through with that - 18 months seizure free!!

Dr Patel over-prescribed meds that made my daughter more sick, requiring 5 days of hospitalization at a children's hospital under the care of another neurologist. Dr Patel conveyed highly sensitive and serious information regarding my daughter's health through her front office receptionist, rather than taking the time to phone me directly.

My mom drives me to my appointments and she always tries to talk and make it a nice safe environment. I really enjoy my appointments with her.

I live in Las Vegas and I found dr Patel on the Internet. My daughter needed to be seen ASAP and dr Patels availability was the soonest. Dr Patel was very kind and attentive. She was very considerate finding time for my daughters EEG on the same day of our appointment and saved us tons of travel money. I highly recommend this dr. The staff was also very attentive.
