in Sterling, CO |
I am very impressed with Dr. Patel and Susie Estes. Dr. Patel is kind and listens when you speak, whereas other Drs I've seen have either cut me off or interrupted continuously. I feel that he genuinely cares for his patients, which is hard to come by. Susie Estes is also extremely smart, kind and genuine with a great sense of humor! I will recommend anyone with spine issues to see this wonderful medical team.

Dr. Patel explains and listens better than almost any doctor, and I felt that I could trust him. The radiologist said that everyone in the department sent their family members to see him. He ended up doing a spinal fusion on me and three years later, it is still working beautifully. The recovery was long an painful, just a heads up. Getting in to see him took a long time. I recommended Dr. Patel to a friend with complicated health issues, and she was very happy with his treatment.
There are absolutely no words to describe the incompetence and unprofessionalism of Dr. Vikas Patel and his staff. He lacks proper judgement, listening skills, and compassion. His lack of attention and the lack of follow through by his nurse coordinator, Emily Senn, leads to critical information being lost, test results not being read, and appropriate care not provided. There are no systems in place to prevent catastrophic outcomes for his patients. I have never seen anything like it. Beware.

Dr. Patel, on the first visit, diagnosed my wife's back pain as actually more symptomatic of sacral-illiac joint pain. His office arranged for a non-steroidal injection the next day to confirm if her pain was emanating from there. The test conclusively showed that Dr. Patel was correct. The doctors at a major clinic in Vail had been telling my wife for over two years that her pain was all back related and that surgery was the only answer.
in Colorado Springs, CO |
I am so personally grateful for the amazing work this physician and his team has done for myself, husband, brother, best friend, patients I sent in the past when I worked in Family practice as an MA. I had been through 3 previous neck surgeries. The third was botched by a screw being placed in my disc space. Dr. Patel did an 11 hour 6 level front and back redo surgery. It was a difficult recovery but I cannot imagine where I'd be without him and his assistant Susan Estes,NP.

He saved my mom's life. She had a broken neck C2. He was just so nice and helped so much. He was able to fuse the neck.
