Accepting new patients

I suffered from an intractable cough from allergies & asthma as a child. This steered my career towards Pulmonary Medicine. During my training, I was fascinated by the repeated cessation of respiration during sleep in patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea. This fascination lead me to pursue training and board certification in Sleep Medicine. After finishing professional training in 1994, to serve a small community where we can raise our 4 and 1-year-old daughters, we moved to Goshen and started our practice at Sneeze & Snooze Clinic. (We were blessed with a son a year later!) Over last 20 plus years, we have worked with a wonderful group of employees and thousands of patients, whom we had a divine opportunity to work with. To serve our patients better, we opened our Mishawaka office in 2006. Here, is our practice philosophy: 1. See patients promptly. 2. Treat them better than they wish to be treated. 3. Educate them using social media (YouTube, Facebook, Twitter.) 4. Learn continually to provide "State of the Art Care in the Middle of Nowhere." 5. Know your limitation and refer out when you can't help patients locally. Thanks for the opportunity to serve you. God Bless You.

Dr. Patel Says:

I was shocked to see only 3 stars on my patient satisfaction survey in September of 2014 because that is not what I hear from our patients. 

After that initial shock, I did start focusing on my communication with my patients. Now, I sit down facing the patient, make eye contacts, listen attentively, and answer all their questions based on my ability and expertise. I also made it a...

Dr. Patel and his NP Deborah Ponce are wonderful providers. They have both taken care of my sleep and allergy problems. When walking in the office you are greeted by the front office with smiles. Also they have hot coffee for the winter and cold ice tea or lemonade for the hot summer. They always have the wonderful cookies and popcorn for a morning or afternoon treat. The nurses are all friendly. The billing dept. work so well when you have a question about your bill. This office is fantastic!!

I highly recommend Dr. Patel and his staff. The service is excellent and I feel cared for. I was diagnosed with sleep apnea and have now used a CPAP for nearly a year and love it. My sleep has improved significantly.
Thanks, Deb, for the kind words. I am glad u r well.

I always felt very welcome and cared for by all the staff. Dr Patel has a very friendly but professional demeanor and always seemed genuinely concerned with me as a person, not just a customer. His treatments have probably saved my life, but have certainly saved my marriage! (no gasping and snoring). Two years ago we moved to Indianapolis and I switched doctors. While visiting Mishawaka I was in need of a new power cord. Dr Patel was willing to make sure I had what I needed. He's the best!
Very nice of you to share this, Geoff.
