We love Dr Patel. Without him, we would still be going to the ER and hospital many times a year. He has saved our son's life!! I recommend him to all of my friends and family.

Great with my daughter and son. He is very caring and spends a lot of time with us. My children's asthma is controlled now. He has kept us out of the ER and hospital. Thank You Dr Patel. I have sent my friends and family to him. Also he is a sleep doctor and gave me some great tips on sleep training!!

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.
