Two of my (now adult) children see Dr. Patel for Dysautononia and its fall out. Dr. Patel is kind, patient, and fully engaged in listening to his patients (and caregivers) and working with them to provide comprehensive care and treatment. He has been a rock in a storm for them and me.

I have been a patient of Dr. Patel's for 10 years. Dr. Patel listens and builds relationships with his patients which lead to trust and more importantly hope which assists in the healing process. Dr. Patel is always informed on the latest advancements in his field and particularly in the area of dysautonomia. His office staff are well organized and prompt and his nurse Amber is amazing and always returns my calls. I would highly recommend Dr. Patel.

There aren't enough words to express the level of care and true concern Dr. Patel puts into each of his patients. Hes very genuine and caring, never brushing off your symptoms or conditions. At my lowest medical point he has been my light??

It is "Covid" time, so my first appointment with Dr. Patel was virtual. I was worried it would be limited and incomplete because of the lack of in person meeting, but I was incorrect. Dr. Patel spent a full hour with me, and was very attentive and responsive. I live 3 hours away, and the appointment was so convenient, and I hope to have many of my future appointments this way with Dr. Patel!

I have been a patient of Dr. Patel for about 17 years. He is the most caring, genuine, & professional doctor I have ever been to. He takes his time with every patient. Reviews all your medical history & medications and discusses every concern you may have. Without a doubt he is the best cardiologist and I am so blessed to have him as my doctor. I would rate him a 20 if I could. If you are looking for a cardiologist take my advice and see Dr. Patel.

Dr. Patel is an excellent physician. He connected the pieces of the puzzle after years of seeing doctors because he listens to the patient and gathers a detailed history. I am actually starting to feel better than I have in a very long time. Treated me with respect and kindness and I am forever grateful.

I have seen several cardiologists and cannot rec this doctor enough!! He has an amazing bedside manner and super knowledgeable. He personally informed me of a cancellation so that I was able to be seen sooner than expected. Ordered necessary tests without going overboard and thoroughly explained my condition . This type of doctor is hard to find. See him for your preventative and immediate needs and you won’t be sorry!

Dr. Patel spent a great amount of time with me, listening to my medical history, my symptoms, etc. He treated me as an equal, something most doctors don't do anymore. He gave me utmost confidence in him, one of the best doctor visits ever.

Dr.patel is the most caring person as a doctor. I would recommend him to anyone. I would rate him a 10 also because a 5 is not high enough. He cares about his patients and not just the money.

Dr. Patel is a great doctor. He takes time to listen to my issues and concerns, and takes time to explain my condition and treatment. He is never condescending or dismissive, and he really cares about what's going on with me and is responsive to my concerns. I've been seeing him for almost 2 years, and I wouldn't consider seeing anyone else. If you have to wait past your appointment time, understand that it's because he doesn't rush his patients in and out like so many doctors do these days.

After waiting two and a half hours, a rude and worthless visit with Dr. Patel commenced. He offered no insight into my cardiac condition except to ask if my blood had been drawn - which he could have known had he bothered to read my file. His only advice was to read a book on my condition that I could buy from his front desk. WHAT A SCAM!!!!!

Dr. Patel is absolutly the best at his profession! He makes sure you understand all that pertains to you before leaving his office (all is written out for your records). He takes his time to make sure that the patient understands all of your options and answers all questions that you may have. His follow up and thoroughness is unmatched! He has one heck of a staff, starting with Lori Quinn-Tate RPN. I highly recommend Dr. Patel to all of our family and friends!!
