Dr. Yogi, knows all about relieving pain! He is a expert at dealing with CRPS! He takes time to listen and work with me, I never feel like I am being rushed! Check out his Pain Management Tools on Coastal Pain's website.

Through the months of working with Dr. Patel and his staff, I feel as if I can contribute to a fairly good quality of life. I still have my moments of terrible pain, but I do see in time there may be an easing off of my pain. I am so glad my doctor recommended that I go see him for treatment. He is the best doctor I have ever gone to for my pain management.

Dr. Patel is a professional, caring doctor who takes the time to listen and create a plan that works for me. It truly is refreshing to find a doctor that actually takes the time to listen and provide a multi-step strategy to reduce my pain. Thank you Dr Patel!

Dr Patel has an excellent bedside manner. He really listens to me and genuinely seems to care. I have had epidurals in the past by other physicians with not much success, but to my surprise Dr Patel's injections took the pain out of both my back & neck! He is professional yet funny too. I recommend him highly!

I had a pain caused by a disk in my neck and asked to expedite the treatment. In two days I got appointment for epidural injection. The process went completely without pain and I was fully relaxed. The attitude of Dr Patal was amazing, friendly, caring and without any formal barriers. Overnight all the pain that I was suffering from in the last month completely gone. Coastal Pain staff was great, very helpful and without the formalities of Scripps, everyone help you outside their role

Dr. Patel has made my life worth living again after many years of debilitating pain. He is kind, courteous and interested in his patients. His staff is also excellent and I would recommend him to family and friends.

Dr Patel is the only Dr. that has been able to help me with my back pain. I've had the pain for 30 years and it was only getting worse. He is the top of the list of any Doctor that I've ever seen. The Doctor that you would send someone to that you really loved and wanted them to have the best treatment.

I went to dr patel after my neck surgery. I was have back leg pain. Numbness in both legs and feet. I was not ready fir another surgery. I just needed relief till I was up for other surgery. It took few months. But the epidurals helped, and got on the right pain meds.'they did a genetic test by swabbing my mouth. That told him what pain meds work and the ones that don't. Many years taking pain meds that's didn't work and all the dr thought I was crazy. Now 3 pain scale. Work 40 HR week.
