I was in an accident had spinal injuries was in so much pain and so scared that I would not be able to walk straight let alone stand up straight again. After seeing Dr. Patel he talked me through the procedure and on 1-29-2015 performed my surgery and now I can stand and walk straight. Dr. Patel is heaven sent I would recommend him to everyone with spinal injuries or problems. Thank you for being such a GREAT Doctor.

My experience with Dr. Patel was terrific. He knows just what he is doing and explains things so you understand what is going on. He if very friendly and makes you feel very comfortable. He certainly does care about his patients and that is reflected in his care of you. You cannot get any better than this doctor. I would recommend him to anyone that requires any spinal surgery. My 2 1/2 hour drive one way to see him was well worth the trip. I am so glad that he was recommended to me. There are just not enough words to tell you just how good he is as a surgeon and as a person.

I would just like to say I was in awful pain for about a month until my back surgery ,microdiskectomy. I was pain free the evening after surgery. It was wonderful to move without the pain . I just want to say thanks to doctor Patel for making my life better. Also thanks to all involved from the office to the hospital , Everyone was just so polite and courteous. I would recommend you anytime Thanks again Mike

Dr. Patel was able to explain my condition and laid out several treatment options. When noninvasive treatments were ineffective we decided together that surgery would be the best plan. I went into the surgery having complete faith in Dr. Patel's abilities and now I feel a million times better than ever. Dr. Patel knows his field and makes sure that his patients know exactly what is going on and what he thinks would be best. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone with back pain or spinal injuries.

Dr. Patel performed a very serious, tedious surgery on me September 2012, at Oakwood Annapolis. He was very professional, timely, proficient, and precise. My family and I will be forever greatful for his service. He is the best...... This is seven months later and my last appointment on yesterday was great. The bones are fusing and I feel great

Greay DR: & takes his time to find out your problem.

by Gail Jones on Mar 5th, 2013

I feel Dr. Nilesh M. Patel is a very compassionate, knowledgable doctor. I have had a very successful TLIF surgery and I contribute that success to the skill of the surgeon. I would not hesitate to recommend him to another patient nor would I hesitate to seek him out if I needed further surgery.

I'm a 53 year female. For well over 25 years I suffered with pain in my neck and arm. I thought my pain was stress related, the pain would come and go. My neck would lock in place. My shoulder burned my elbow ached. I felt a little off balance tripping often and feeling really bad. Over the past 20 years I did see 2 other orthopedic doctors who said I was fine. After my first visit with Dr. Patel I felt very comfortable with what he told me. I had surgery. I just got back from my 6 months post opt. appt. I am so HAPPY I went to see him and had this done I feel like a new person. As with most good Doctors the time in the waiting room is well worth the outcome. I would tell anyone who is having pain make a appointment. He helped me.
