Dr. Kirti K Patel has the following 1 specialty
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

DO NOT USE THIS DR. He does not care about his patients unless they make him money. He bases patient's care on if he can make money. He does not take time to listen or treat any areas that he supposedly has listed that he treats. He only checks meds, listen to heart & lungs & that's it! He is rude to his patients and his staff. I have seen this multiple times. He is rude, unprofessional, inconsiderate and inpatient with his patients unless his favs. He does not have your best interest in mind
Rude rude rude. From the moment I stepped into the door till I actually saw the Dr. The tall blond medical assistant I believe was drunk or on something because she walked into walls and could not speak clearly. I was amazed and horrified that she was allowed to draw blood. The Dr. Spent five minutes with me and left. Five minutes. I'm never returning
This physician had an attitude from the moment he came into the exam room for our first visit. He has no personality and no bedside manner. He does not want you to have specialists, as he wants to be the only doctor you see. Kenny has been going to the same cardiologist and the same neurologists for several years and trusts them with the problems he has with dementia and parkinsonian symptoms. He made it clear from the beginning that he wanted Kenny to see him rather than the specialists. We argued that fact, telling him that Kenny has specific issues that these doctors were attending. He has two neurologists, one specializes in migraine headaches and the other the dementia. Dr. Patel made it clear that he wanted Kenny to see only one of the neurologists, that he had to pick one and that would be the only neurologist he could see. Kenny said he couldn't pick just one. The doctor asked if he had seen a psychiatrist, implying that his problems were "in his head". Dr. Patel is rude and obnoxious. At Kenny's appointment yesterday (March 13) he asked this question again and when Kenny said he couldn't pick one, Dr. Patel, in a rude and mad manner, said he needed to get another primary care doctor. With that being said, Kenny got up and proceeded to walk to the door. He told Dr. Patel that he was the patient and didn't deserve to be talked to in that manner. Dr. Patel then opened the door and told Kenny and myself to "get out"! We left the building and went to the Humana office on McMullen Booth Road. The gentleman there took down the complaint and immediately sent it to the corporate office. He was upset that a doctor would treat a patient that way. Dr. Patel, from the beginning, has told us that if Kenny had a problem, i.e.,blacking out, not breathing, etc., that we should notify him first before calling 911. If your loved one blacked out in the street or couldn't breathe, would you call the doctor first??? When talking to the insurance office we were told absolutely call 911 first. This doctor needs an attitude adjustment!! Dr. Patel, by far, is the worst doctor we have ever encountered. We would not recommend him to anyone.
