Dr. D. ROCKS!!!

I started seeing Dr. D after a referral approx. 15 yrs ago, and feel that I was definitely blessed with the information. He has seen me thru so many different medical needs thru the yrs, and I know he always has my best in mind when he treats me. I've moved 40 miles from Decatur, and I absolutely refuse to see anyone else, unless there's been no choice but to see someone else. due to emergency issues.I would highly recommend Dr. D. Patel to everyone!!!
