Dr Patel is a physician that is slowly becoming a rare diamond among the pebbles. She is 150% devoted to each and every patient and is highly respected by her colleagues. She is among the few who take call, and sees her patients when they are hospitalized. As a patient and a colleague for almost 10 years she has caught issues others MD's missed and remembers you. Me. And cares. She literally saved my life when a number of medical professionals had misdiagnosed every complication and I believe I owe my life to her. As does my family. If you are privileged to be under her care, cherish it and follow all her instructions. You will not regret it.She constantly receives my highest praise when asked and I will be her pt until she retires. Even if I move out of city or state, I will not leave her care. She is THAT AWESOME...She ROCKS!
