I had double vision from a stroke at the pons. Dr. Patel started treating me after the surgery. He is very knowledgeable and caring. He showed genuine concern for my case. He told me to be patient and that my vision will get better. Today, I can see fine even without the prism glasses he gave me. I would recommend Dr. Patel to anyone.
