Dr. Patel has been my pulmonologist for the last few years. I located him through a Piedmont Health Care search when my bronchitis became worse. Despite the long distance driving, I place great value on my visits. He is considerate, patient, and respects the needs of his patients. He answers every question thoroughly and takes time to go over various tests and any additional matters not understood by his patients. You will be in excellent care with Dr. VJ Patel!

Wonderful. He answered every question. Gave me excellent advise. I've been going to him for 18 years and he is the BEST. I drive from Columbus Ga. so see Dr. Patel. I'm 88 and I owe a lot of that to Dr. Patel.

Dr Patel is a very professional caring doctor. Listens to your problems. Then explains to you in a way one can understand exactly what he's talking about. He's also my sleep doctor. I did not know he was a lung specialist until I started having problems. Then I saw his name under pulmonologist. How lucky could I be. Dr Patel is very thorough in his examinations. Rather it's problems with your lungs or sleep disorder I highly recommend Dr Patel.
