Dr. Patel is a very thorough physician. He was kind and compassionate and he told me the results of my procedure in terms I could understand. And, he explained the follow-up procedures that he would recommend.

Dr. Patel is a very caring doctor. I was in the hospital two weekends ago. WIsh I could have seen him them. We got into seeing him the following Tuesday. It was nice to be able to get in so quickly. I appreciate that.

I was pleased with my initial consult with Dr. Patel last year, his unhurriedness and collaborative approach to his patients care was refreshing and reassuring. His proficiency and expertise on my latest visit again amazed me when he thoroughly investigated a most vague minor complaint which resulted in lifesaving treatment that I never dreamed I needed. The time and information that he gives his patient and their family is as impressive as his knowledge and professionalism. So thankful.

in Hermitage, TN |
Dr Patal is the kind of Dr one hopes and prays they will get. He is extremely thorough, not only in the tests he performs or orders, he explains everything in great detail where you can understand your condition, prognosis and treatment. I trust him and his staff 100% and highly recommend him. Thank you to Dr. Patal and staff at Centennial Heart at Summitt. Brenda Clarke
Very friendly and explained was needed to happen fully

Dr Patel listens. He's very interested in you and wants to hear all you have to say. He's thorough in asking about all your medicines, tests, and what to expect. You will see he isn't a Dr. that trys to expedite you through your visit and out the door. His nurses and staff think ahead and have everything ready for your visit. I felt his nurses cared about me just as much as the DR. did. I felt I was in good hands.
Mount Juliet, TN |
He has been available whenever I needed him--ER, hospital, office visits, phone. His patient bedside manners are indicative of his caring, conservative decisions about procedures, surgery, etc. He personally calls to give me results of tests even if it is at 5:30 p.m. He is truly committed to being a servant to all who need his care.
in Mt, Juliet TN |
Very good at spending the necessary time to explain the results any testing that was done and answering any questions. Very easy and pleasant to talk to. Would highly recommend him to anyone needing his speciality.
Mount Juliet, TN |
on time, thorough explanations, time allowed to ask questions
in Nashville, TN |
Easy to discuss problems with, since I was new to him he was very thorough with his questions and with the tests he ordered. My husband is also his patient and we would highly recommend him to family and friends. My former heart doctor was also part of this group and they all interact well with each other.
in Nashville, TN |
I am a patient with high anxiety. Not only does Dr. Patel make me feel comfortable, his entire staff is pleasant, helpful and always willing to go the extra step. Dr. Patel explains everything in a way that you always leave understanding what is needed and what was done. I highly recommend Dr Patel to any patient with cardiac issues.
Hermitage, TN |
Dr Patel is wonderful. Clear and easy to understand advice and reasons for symptoms and needed procedures, and took the time to talk with us until we were comfortable. Not man will do that anymore!
in Hendersonville, TN |
Dr. Patel is a patient knowledgeable doctor that sits down and explains things so you can understand exactly what is going on with you. He makes you feel comfortable and you don't feel scared about what is going on. He really does his job well. I wish he could be my doctor for everything I would travel many miles to see him.
in Hermitage , TN |
Dr. Patel is a wonderful cardiologist who is not only personable but attentive to all my needs concerning my heart health. His staff is thorough, office wait times are minimal. I would recommend him to anyone seeking quality consistent cardiological care.
in Altamont, TN |
Dr. Patel addressed my 100% blockage of the widow maker that St Thomas wouldnt touch. From the first visit I felt totally at ease and confident that he was truly interested in my well being. My last check up consisted two stress tests one day apart. About three hours after we got home (we live nearly two hours away) Dr. Patel himself called to discuss the results....We are very thankful to Dr. Patel and highly recommend him to anyone who has heart problems.
