Dr. Patel is everything one wants in a doctor. Not only is he competent and informed and experienced in his specialty; he also conveys a sincere interest in my well-being, and he has demonstrated that over the past two years. He understands that I am reticent to undergo tests and procedures unless I thoroughly understand the need for them, so he takes the time to answer my questions and gain my approval before doing so.

Dr. Patel is by far the best Dr. we have ever seen. He has the best bedside manners-he is calm and a excellent listener and we never feel rushed when we are being seen. My mother experiences a lot of anxiety due to past unfortunate Dr experiences and my mother feels comfortable with him and can come with a list of questions and he always takes the time to answer. Very patient and remembers his patients. We don't feel like just a number when we are seen by him. I can't say enough great things
