Specialties

Dr. Nilesh C Patel has the following 2 specialties

  • Nephrology

    A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
    A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

  • 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.

Extremely bad temper and very unprofessional. Do not raise complaints or concerns with this nephrologist or pay the price of retaliation or discharge from your dialysis clinic. Currently works for Chattanooga Kidney Center in Cleveland, TN and Dialysis Clinic, Inc. in Hixson, TN where as medical directors. Avoid this bad doctor, there are many good ones to choose from other than Dr. Patel.

This "doctor" has blood on his hands

This "doctor" encourages family members to let their patients die. His philosophy, as stated by him, is that dialysis is not for preserving life but for quality of life. Maybe something to that, but he has encouraged many people I know, with a lot of life left, to throw in the towel and just die. He is impossible to reach, even under emergency situations. He is a disgrace to his profession.
