Dr. Patel is an excellent dermatologist and came highly recommended by several friends and neighbors who currently see him. He was extremely knowledgeable about my condition, and he spent significant time to ensure my questions were answered. I haven't had great luck with other dermatology practices in the area, and it was a relief to find NC Derm Associates. The staff is great, and they are accepting new patients unlike many practices in the area. Dr. Patel is extremely knowledgeable and comes from top notch training programs. As someone in the healthcare field who has tried other options in the area, I would highly recommend this practice.
Lost patient opportunity

Wow! After reading these reviews I am definitely not going to this doctor even though the facility is close by and accepts my insurance. I do not want to waste precious time!
It was okay.

I am going to give this another chance in about a month, my experience wasn't terrible just not remarkable. The only thing I really feel strongly enough to write a review about is the lack of time spent. The doctor seemed very rushed even though there was only one other patient in line behind me. He was very quick about it all, checked out what I had asked him to briefly, no more no less. I felt like it could have definitely been more thorough. But again, I will try this location again before I search else where.
Very Good Experience

After reading bad reviews about Dr. VIkas I was hesitant to book my appointment. My fiancÃ© had been to him and said he was "ok". He was covered by my insurance and close to home so I decided to try him out. I was very impressed with the service at his office as well as his personal interaction with me. He gave me very detailed explanations of all antibiotics he prescribed as well as spending time to answer my questions, discuss my skill and makeup. I will be returning for my follow up appointment in 3 months. I went in for acne.

Very pleased! I had seen two other dermatologists for the same condition and was pretty much told there was really nothing else to be done. My first visit with Dr.Patel and he gave me two meds to try for the condition and withing 3 weeks I could see results. I would highly recommend. And...he is seeing new patients.

Impressed with this young dermatologist. He knows his stuff. He's quite straight forward, doesn't beat around the bush. His diagnosis as well as his cure couldn't have been more right on. I recommend him highly.
Such a wasted young doctor!

Dr. Patel, as a young man that he is, is kind of not so much motivated on seeing patients especially walk-ins and emergencies. He seems to be just complacent with seeing patients on return visits, and does not accept new patients anymore. As regards treating patients, e.g., psoriasis, he seems to hesitate to give new effective medications. He is not much of a patient advocate, i didn't feel in him the kind of empathy one would expect from a psoriasis patients like me, who have chronic skin condition. He is like, he wants to get rid of you right away. I can say so, because I am also in the healthcare profession. Such a wasted young man/doctor!

Waste of money. The office is always empty. Went for botox. Dr. did not bother to come and check. They just want you to go for follow up.They just want to make fast buck.
