Dr. Patel is an amazing doctor. He and his nurse are a great team. I always have a great experience with them and feel well taken care of. I’m so glad we were able to see past the rudeness and entitlement of the reception staff when calling in, or I might have missed the care of a great doctor.

Dr. Patel is an amazing doctor! He takes his time with each appointment, thoroughly answers all of your questions and he genuinely bonds with your child. My daughter loves to go see him and be in conversation with him. Each appointment is like sitting back and watching old friends reconnect and catch up. As a parent, I am so very thankful for his medical expertise, his care and his interest in the overall wellbeing of my child.

Dr. Patel has been seeing my children for many years (my 12 year old daughter for 9 years to be exact!) Dr. Patel has been the doctor who has guided so much for our children's overall care. Being a physician for our family is definitely Not an easy task, as my children are considered "medically complex", however Dr. Patel continues to go out of his way to ensure my babies are always cared for as if they were his own. We will continue to utilize his practice for as long as they will have us! Cannot recommend highly enough!

Dr. Patel has cared for our twins, almost since birth. He’s not only kind, compassionate, and informative, he’s almost family! The entire staff has always been professional. They’re deserving of our highest recommendation!

Dr. Patel always has the best interest of our son in mind. He was able to diagnose our son when others were not. He looks out for our Sons well being, and gives him the help that he needs to succeed. We are very thankful that our pediatrician recommended we see him.

I had my first visit with Dr.Patel today, I wish it would have been an actual visit but it was virtual because of the COVID-19 going on. Anyway the appointment went well. He answered all my questions. He was very informative and talked in terms I understood. My son was in the hospital for 2 weeks and saw his PA Heather, she was great. From what I have seen of this office and its staff they really go above and beyond to give the best care to children in need. Thank yall.

I was very please with Dr. Patel but his office staff leaves much to be desired. It took me 4 months to get an appt after a mistake made by the front desk lady, they made no attempt to correct their mistake. We waited 30 mins in the waiting room with only 1 other patient and another 30 mins in the exam room. Getting a return phone call has also proven very difficult. The voicemail says calls will be returned within 2 hours, it's been 2 days. They require a lot of patience to deal with.
