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...

Patient Reviews (22)
in Indianapolis, IN |
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!

Dr. Patel says...

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...

"Something as simple as blowing air in the throat changed my life remarkably," a pleasant mom in her 40s exclaimed. Sleep apnea treatment, not only makes you live longer but also makes your life richer and fuller. This is the only disease that robs you of your health, and your personal, professional, and family life. The treatment gives you your life back.

With allergy testing, allergen avoidance, and if necessary, allergy shots, we have seen a similar improvement in how patients feel; free of allergy symptoms, and full of life.

We continue to strive to care for allergy and sleep disorders patients in a timely, professional, and friendly manners despite the current insurance climate.

We believe that health education is the most important part of the treatment. This is the reason, we share state of the art information about allergies and sleep disorder in the social media; youtube, facebook page, twitter, and LinkedIn.

Thank you for your trust. Be Well. Do Good Work. And Keep in Touch.

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 routine to leave the exam room only after patient leaves!

This intervention has helped me improve my patient care and communication greatly. In addition, I go home happier and buoyant at the end of the day!

Thanks for the constructive criticism. It made me a better person and a better physician.

God Bless You All.
