It's crazy how fast someone's life can change. I remember hearing the words from the ER doctor after my car accident you broke your ankle in two places and will need surgery. I didn't know what to do,I didn't know what to think but I know now seeing Dr. Patel was the best decision I made. He is polite, soft spoken and he has been able to put me back together literally. Each office has been clean, professional, and accommodating. I thank you ALL for all your kind staff and smiley faces.

Make you feel comfortable and he can joke around.

Dr Patel performed foot surgery to shave down an enlarged bone under my right big toe. A few years later, I still have the same sized bone growth, did not regain movement in my big toe, and my foot is a half shoe size smaller than the other one. In other words, it was a completely wasted surgery. When I went in for a checkup, he looked and nonchalantly said, It looks like there are bone chips floating around in there because of the surgery. So there's that now too. Go elsewhere.

I would recommend Dr. Patel because he really takes the time to make sure you understand everything about your injury. He takes the time to explain all your options and makes sure you have the best patient care possible.

I had constant pain when I went to see Dr. Patel. He immediately put me at ease with his calm personality. I decided to have the foot surgery and have been pain free ever since! Dr. Patel is a very skilled foot & ankle surgeon and I recommend him to anyone with foot pain.

I broke my ankle in January and when he saw my x-rays he wanted to see me immediately for consolation to discuss my injury. at that point I knew I was in good hands. Dr. Patel and his staff are very friendly and care about their patients. He listened to all my concerns and answered all my questions. my last visit was on April 15, 2016 and will miss them. Thank you for such good care. Sincerely, Barbara Frank

My son had a serious ankle injury during a soccer game and we ended up at the nearest hospital. We met Dr. Patel the next morning after spending the night in the hospital. He has a great bedside manner and was quick to put us at ease. After a successful surgery, my son is in physical therapy and improving daily. Fantastic doctor with a fantastic staff. Therapists are awesome as well. We couldn't be happier and are very thankful!
