    Great doctor! Dr. Patel is extremely friendly and professional and did a fantastic job with my surgery! Definitely would recommend him to friends and family.

    Can't trust him, after he didn't follow through with what he said he would. Rude with no interest in the comfort or welfare of his patients. If it wasn't for them he wouldn't be in practice. I would never go back to him!,

    After reading his reviews i didnt expect to have such a great experience. I am 8 days post op from a hemmoroidectomy and i must say i had a wonderful recovery. Dr. Patel and his staff have been wonderful. The overall procedure itself was a painful journey but compared to others i know my surgery and recovery were top notch. I do agree he is not much of a people person but in my opinion that doesnt matter. Its the quality of work and care you receive. Hes very straightforward. I highly recommend

    Very talented Doctor but you can see by his work history he has a short fuse and a gigantic ego. Great Great man but has no people skills what so ever. This is the best surgeon in town but you will pay for it with extreme lack of respect for patients and decent common courtesy. When it comes down to it and you need your life saved he is the man but do not expect to be treated with good customer service by the doctor or his staff.
