Dr Patel is a wonderful doctor takes his time Your not left waiting on the waiting area or in the back room staff is just as great He will find what's wrong he will send you to who you need to see if that's what's needed, if you call and you need to see him now, not a problem you have an appointment that day, he is always still learning new things to help his patients.... I would highly recommend him as a primary care doctor.
After being a loyal patient for 15+ years, I am sad to say that I will be switching doctors after a recent visit with Dr. Patel. I had a few questions for the doctor as to what led him to refer my mother for further testing of a swollen lymph node (for future reference if swelling does not decrease or returns). Instead of simply telling me that he was being safe by having her lymph node checked out (which is fine because who would not want to err on the side of caution?), he actually yelled at me for questioning his judgement and said that he would print out her results and we could take them to a specialist since we did not believe him. This response was shocking to me, considering that my entire family has been under his care since 1993 and we have never felt disrespected in this manner by him in the past twenty years. Although we are disappointed by his unprofessional demeanor and rude attitude, I am glad to see his true colors now, in a benign situation, instead of in a hospital room during an emergency situation where I may have questions about his course of treatment and he berates me like an insolent child rather than addressing me in a respectful manner. What a huge disappointment.
Mean and nasty women working in office. Asked red haired receptionist a simple question and she gave me a bad attitude.
There is no Red Head working in my office and Response to Stephanie second guessing . Refusing appropriate testing.Already had Opinion at Tertiary center . After all the results turn out be benign results questioning why got CT Scan . Hind sight always 20/20. Happy not further dealing with whole family after giving best care I could give .Same person would have Written bad report if appropriate test and Biopsy not done and would have shown cancer. Plus lead to other Legal action.
In 2005 I was diagnosed with cancer. I had not been "picky" about a doctor before this, but after the cancer diagnosis I decided I needed the very best doctors that I could find. I found the very best in Dr.Patel. He is a wonderful doctor, and I would recommend him highly to anyone seeking a doctor. I have been cancer free for six and a half years. Thank you, Dr.Patel.
