Dr Patel is a compassionate doctor; somewhat. His staff however lacks. Twice I have called 10 days in advance for a refill on my blood pressure med. Once the wrong med was called in which if I had taken could have been a serious mistake and the second time they let it fly for so long they forgot about it and left for their long vacation before hand leaving me without. (Even with phone calls in between) This is a dangerous practice. I also had xrays and CT done on my back. The medical assistant called me and told me it was "nothing to worry about, you just have old people's disease." Not exactly the correct diagnosis. They use to bring a dog into the office and 3 times I've been there with urine and or feces on the floor in the waiting room. Hopefully they don't do that anymore. None the less, I do like Dr. Patel more than some others I have seen. He isn't much for talking, tends to repeat questions you've already answered. The wait time is ridiculous! You wait up to an hour in the waiting room and then another 30-40 mins in the exam room and Dr. Patel will spend, on average 10 mins with you. Questions are being asked as he is walking out the door. When he is done he is done. So if this sounds bad, just think of what others are like that he actually rates one extra star. Doctors just don't care much anymore.

I only wish I could leave minus 4 stars. Dr. Sadan Patel is, without exaggeration, the single most unconscionably cruel human being I have ever encountered in my travels. I saw him today as a new patient, I have a history of leukemia and seizures which caused memory loss and chronic insomnia and desperately needed a doctor. As he "interviewed me" he repeatedly asked the same questions I'd just answered (e.g. After telling him 3 times that my husband is abusive he asked if I was married. About a minute after I'd explained I was diagnosed with, and treated for AML in Tucson in 2012, he asked when in 2014 was I diagnosed with AML and if I was treated in Scottsdale. After telling him what sleep medication I'd tried he asked me what sleep medications I've tried. I could go on and on but there isn't room enough here. I'd kept a few brief notes of my symptoms in my phone (as the seizures caused severe memory loss and I thought a physician might appreciate not having to wait for my recollections) but he refused to read them. (They take 2 min. 15 sec. to read, I'd timed it to make sure I'd not be inconveniencing him.) He also apparently has zero tolerance for emotions, or tears, or if you dare question him. I grew extremely frustrated with his inattentiveness (and was on my 8th straight day of no sleep) and told him I wouldn't take any more brain altering medication for sleep and he literally began yelling at me and inexplicably informed me I was "untrustworthy" and "the most unkind women he had ever met". At this point I'd begun weeping and was pleading with him for a blood test to at least assure me the leukemia hadn't returned. He refused. I am a ridiculously fun, kind, loving, caring, sympathetic, empathetic, mother, daughter, sister, auntie, mentor, friend and a good and decent human being in general. I've been an ethical vegan for over 25 years and I'm an animal and human rights activist, yet after speaking with me for 5 minutes Dr. Patel deemed me "untrustworthy and unkind" and refused me the most basic of medical care. I feIt as if I'd been trapped inside an old Twilight Zone episode. It was, Surreal. It is now 7 hours later and I am still physically and emotionally shocked and flattened by the experience. I've never been attacked in such a way by Anyone, Ever, let alone by a medical doctor who has taken an oath to help eliminate suffering. It was truly the cruelest, ugliest thing anyone has ever said to me. (The man has a lovely little golden Buddha statue in his waiting room, I know of no one less deserving and it needs to be revoked.)
Doesn't take insurance

I called Dr. Patel's office to make an appointment as he was recommended to me by another doctor. I was told by the receptionist that he doesn't accept insurance unless the deductible has been met. I commented that most people will not have met their deductible at the beginning of the year and asked about co-pays. She said he doesn't accept them unless a deductible has been met and until then it is $200 for each appointment.

I was suffering a "mutant" viral infecction and migranes for 2 weeks I went to the ER with half of my face numb. 18,000 dollars later they dismised me with pain killers stating there was nothing they could do for me. Dr Patel took care of me. It took 5 different meds and 3 weeks to feel 100% . I will definetely recommend him. He doesn't chat much but he is friendly.
