Charlotte, NC |
I really wish there was a negative choice because this office failed me beyond belief. I am Deaf. I requested an interpreter for my appointment, offered a number, and it was declined. They said they have their own service that they use. My appointment day there was not an interpreter. I asked them to check if she was running late. They said nothing to me at all. They didn't tell me there wouldn't be one. They did not run the tests they said they had... they had no doctors notes bad

Ive been going to Dr Patel for quite some time now. He's always been nonchalant and doesn't seem to care about anything. He's rude and doesn't take the time to explain much of anything regarding your diagnosis. He thinks he know everything and he feels hatbother doctors are always wrong. You can tell him that your experiencing symptoms from your diagnosis and he'll tell you that it's not because of that. His bedside manner is poor.

Waited for months for my appointment then got there waited hours to be seen when finally in the room with him he didn't even do a full exam or listen to me he was in and out in less than 5 min!!! Very rude and not caring at all
Camden, SC |
Barely touched me or examined me, offered NO new testing or suggestions, and decided that multiple other doctors were "wrong" in their assessment of my health. Absolute waste of time! I waited FIVE months to get in there, drove over an hour and waited 2 hours to be seen and was actually told "there is nothing I can do for you"!!! Sorry, I thought this was your specialty, my bad!
in Florence, SC |
He doesn't provide treatment plan or explain his diagnosis. I have yet to start therapy and it just feels like getting better is not a concern for him. Every visit is like the first visit.
in Dillon, SC |
arrogant,demeaning,does not encourage openess, curt, interrupts constantly, came to conclusions too quickly based on little info. i am not returning.
