Dr. Udit Patel is a phenomenal doctor. He’s been treating my neck since my car injury and has even given me injections which I was scared to get them at first but with his experience and knowledge I felt more calm and relaxed and now my neck is feeling better. I highly Recommend Dr.Patel and his office. Great staff and nurses.

Excellent, I was not a fan of injection. I wanted to accomplish my goal through physical therapy. After a few months and a flair up I went to Dr. Patel for injection. Much to my surprise the injections worked. My pain is manageable and I can now go back to physical therapy. Thank you Dr Patel for your patience and understanding of my apprehension. I now understand the benefit of injection. Mentally and physically I am ready to be as active as I can. Thank you I feel blessed to have met this wonderful doctor.

I've been going to see dr patel since 2013. He has always been kind and very laid back. But I recently had an insurance change of which I spoke to him personally about. He sent me to pt, and told me to schedule another follow up, and suggested I apply for social security. I live 40 minutes away and drove out there just to be told sorry Unless you pay 200 dollars he won't see you. I've never had an outstanding balance with them. And I felt very humiliated after that. Fyi it's all about money

Great Doctor! He is the kind of guy that will use every treatment need to get better without the need for invasive surgery. I always consider surgery a last resort.

Dr. Patel is patient and determined to relieve the pain and suffering of the people he treats. It is a relief to know he takes your pain seriously no matter whether it is a 2 or an 8. I will see him again when my chronic back pain flares up again.

Missed work, important occasions,relationships ruined. 48 years passed seeing specialists in Chicago, suburbs and different states.World re-knowned Doctor/headache treatments,medications,procedures,experimental management and more were conducted over this vast range of time. Dr. PATEL suggested a treatment.TY!

I have been seeing Dr. Patel for about 6 years. He is truly interested in your pain and how he can help. I have never felt rushed. He is not one to over prescribe I want the least amount of medication so I can function. Yes they drug test the state requires it. Dr. Udit Patel is a very caring Doctor and I wouldn't go anywhere else.
