He by far was the worst Dr. I have ever spoken with. First made me wait 20 minutes because he said my insurance wasn't the right kind. After I called to confirm he was on my insurance list he took me but he said he wasn't a geriatric Dr. He then prescribed a med which I said made me very very tired and he told me if I wouldn't take it He did not want to see me again. I left feeling VERY discouraged.

When I first looked into getting treatment I didn't know if this was the right course of action. I didn't have a full understanding of why I was so anxious of why my emotions were so out of control all the time. I normalized a lot of my feelings. On my first visit Dr. Patel was wonderful, super patient and understanding of what I was saying even when I wasn't sure what I was trying to say myself. He explained every thing to me and make me feel like I wasn't crazy. I am super grateful of Dr. Patel and his front office staff. They helped me so much.

Without Dr. Patel's help and guidance, my life would be in a very worse place. He is always tentative and very understanding and knows how to adjust to the situation.

I am writing this AFTER my appointment this morning because I wasn't certain what my experience was. I found this. Dr. Patel is very mellow and very, politely, consistent, and persistent. (I tend to keep everything off course. Dr. Patel made several observations that I considered a bit... strong... for only a few visits, and limited exposure. However both observations were correct (but no one likes one who touches sore spots). In the firsts meeting he also made an incisive comment on my "social" drinking problem that made do an instant pivot from having a social problem to having a control of alcohol problem. So far he has been straight with me, even though we have bumped heads, but it has been to my advantage in getting in control of myself. I appreciate that straightness delivered in a quiet manner, and keeping me on track during the session. I recommend him highly, but listen to him and give him some time, and the benefit of any doubt.

I trust Dr Patel with my mental health and it gives me hope that I am not the only one with these experiences. It makes me feel better when I leave the office after my appointments

Had been very reluctant to seek treatment - so glad we did. Not the invasion of privacy that one might fear.

He sat and listened to what what going on and what I needed help with. I was worried about being put on medication and he took that into consideration and put me on a low dose to start with and slowly but surely I started to feel better.
