in Marietta, GA |
I've never left a review for a doctor before, but after seeing Dr. Patel, I feel almost compelled to. I absolutely hate going to the eye doctor (terrified of all things touching my eye), but Dr. Patel is very calming, understanding, and professional. Wouldn't want to see anybody else! The office staff is great as well!
