Specialties

Dr. Umesh R Patel has the following 2 specialties

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • 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.

Dr. Patel is very warm and made me feel very comfortable. I am always nervous when I go to a doctor for the first time. I liked him and would recommend him to anyone.

There are probably better rheumatologists out there

Waiting time excessive. Nice man but not helpful in alleviating my arthritic pain at all or leaving the door open if the medications didn't work or did more harm than good. Went to a new neurologist, having switched from one in the same group as Patel, and got meds that helped immediately. I've made and appointment go to another rheumatologist recommended by my neurologist that may help with joint pain. We'll see.

Doesn't care; doesn't know

So disgusted with the care of received by this doctor. He diagnosed me with rheumatoid arthritis in the middle of the summer. Put me on methyltrexate and Celebrex right away. While on vacation down south I had an extremely severe allergic reaction> I called his office twice asking what I should do and to have him call me. I never received a call back and had to go to an emergency room where I was treated. I REPEAT, HE NEVER CALLED TO SEE HOW I WAS OR IF I WAS ALIVE. This should have warned me but I went back. Time after time, when I questioned how sure was he that I had RA he would respond by saying "What do you want me to say?" Today, I called his office because I have not been feeling well at all. I believe I am having another drug reaction. When I insisted on speaking with him and told him my concerns, he told me to go see my general practitioner. I responded that he knew I didn't have one and his response was the same...see your general practitioner. Terrible care. Just terrible. Needless to say, I am never, ever going back and will be finding myself a new doctor. Don;t want anyone going through what I have been going through the last six months.
