Dr. Nihar Patel review

I was hospitalized for 3 weeks including ICU stay and life support. I was transferred to another hospital where Dr. Patel works and he was consulted on my care. I was throughly impressed on his attention to detail. He noticed I was having side effects of a couple meds and changed them to something else. I started feeling better coming off those meds and once I left a couple weeks ago, I feel the best now than I have in 20years. Thank you Dr. Patel. Highly recommended.

Dr. Patel was by far the best doc I have ever encountered. His bedside manner, ability to explain complex issues in layman's terms and medical skills are the best I have experienced. I have been hospitalized many times due to all my medical conditions and would highly recommend Dr. Patel for his above and beyond care.
