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.
