I have had 2 surgical procedures with Dr. Patel. The first was a fusion of the C-2-3. It went perfect. The second was a fusion of C-3-4-5-6. This surgery was more difficult - but again it went perfect. During my initial consults, follow-up and a post op visits he was attentive and responsive to all my questions. I have recommended Dr. Patel to a lot of friends who have also had fantastic experiences. If you are looking to have orthopedic cervical surgery done, put your trust in Dr Patel.

This doctor was excellent, He was very confident that he could help me and he did not dissapoint me. After suffering for about a year with other doctors that did not help me, Dr. Patel fixed the problem and now I have my life back. Great job.............

Dr. Patel is rude, arrogant and condescending. After seeing him yrs ago, I recently referred a friend who was in horrible back pain. He convinced her that she needed surgery & not to bother w/PT. She scheduled surgery but went for a 2nd opinion. Patel was clearly offended that she had gotten a 2nd opinion. Then the day before the surgery, he cancelled it & dropped her as a patient. She was devastated. Was she not supposed to research her options? I'd NEVER recommend him again.

Dr Patel is an exceptional orthopedic surgeon that has treated me for various issues including a disc fusion since 1999. He is always attentive and fully aware of the issues being discussed and my concerns. He never rushes me through,provides me with well framed alternatives and acts with exceptional promptness when a serious problem presents itself. He can be hard to get an appointment with because of his skills but it is worth the effort. Even though I have moved I still go to his office
