Dr. Patel is the best doctor I've even had, and I've had a LOT of doctors. I have a rare connective tissue disorder that few doctors know anything about. Dr. Patel not only admitted that he had not had a patient with my disorder before, but that he was WILLING TO LEARN ABOUT IT! He is literally the first doctor in my long search to be willing to do research into EDS-HT, and to try to help me. He actually LISTENS to me, and he takes time to answer my questions. He never makes me feel rushed or like I'm a burden or a nuisance. We're working together on a plan to help me, and I'm hopeful for the first time in years. I highly recommend him.
I have been seeing Dr. Patel for a couple of years, bring 30 I didn't want to rush in to surgery to fix my problems and Dr. Patel has respected that and has helped me with pain management as well as testing for other conditions that could be causing my pain. I feel like every time I am with him he takes him time, speaks to me in terms I understand and is very informative. I have never felt rushed or neglected like other doctors have made me feel. Dr. Patel is an amazing doctor who is obviously in the game because he cares about his patients!
