Excellent physician

Dr. Patel came highly recommended from the former head of the hospital GI dept. I can see why. At my request, he performed my colonoscopy without any sedation or meds. There was very little discomfort. He was very through and answered all of my questions. I was able to go right back to work.

he did not explain anything to me - he is always late. He did not tell me about side effects of the medications he prescribed and when I told him what was happening he just referred me back to my general doctor to handle the side effects. He said " I don't handle that part." My doctor said why are you coming to me? I am not treating you - he is. So there you care at all.
