    I went in to the Brandon for getting a explanation of some blood test results. Not only did I wait 1.5 hrs to see a doctor, then Dr.Patel showed up and was extremely rude. She shamed me with the disease I got and said Something wrong with your head? as implying that I am stupid. When I asked her if she recommends taking some shots for preventative measures for another disease, she said If you want. Ask your PCP. Offering no helpful information. She was so rude she made me hate myself.

    This office is too busy to offer quality patient care. I went to this office as a new patient. Leaving due to poor service and treatment.
    Brandon, FL |
    She was rude and very loud to almost screaming, the exam was poorly performed. Dr Patel did not see to care about what I had to say. I did not feel comfortable with her. She is way to old, and should retire.

    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
