Dr. Yogeshkumar Patel has the following 3 specialties
A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.
- Pediatric Gastroenterology
Pediatric gastroenterologists can treat a variety of diseases and conditions in infants and children related to their liver, pancreas or intestines. If your child has severe or recurrent abdominal pain, constipation or diarrhea, a pediatric gastroenterologist can help you get to the bottom of it. They can also help identify the many possible causes of failure to thrive in infants.
Other common conditions they treat include Crohn's Disease, inflammatory bowel disease, liver disease, short gut syndrome and hepatitis C, as well as nutritional disorders like celiac disease and lactose intolerance. In order to diagnose and treat your child’s condition, gastroenterologists can perform colonoscopies and other diagnostic testing before deciding on the best treatment plan.
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

My first appointment that I waited a month for was rescheduled because he had to be out of the office, so I had to wait another month. This man does not listen to his patients and he refused to believe me when I told him about a condition that had developed. My procedure was not scheduled until the afternoon the day before and that would not have happened if I had not called the office to find out where to go and how to get the prep! After all this I am still as sick if not sicker than I was before. His office will not even call you with test results you have to call them. Every where you look in his building there are signs reminding you of your responsibility to pay and keep your insurance up to date with them. I believe this person does not care about his patients he is only in it for the money; and has an attitude of being above everyone else.
He did a EGD on me & He Never followed up afterwards!! When I spend that much money, I Prefer to Hear from the Doctor & not one of His Workers?!?! At Saying that He told me results would be out in about a week, I found myself calling for 2 Months bugging them once a week asking for my results... Every time I was Promised they would call me right back as I found out if I wanted to know results I would have to keep calling them... Good Luck, Hope He Treats Others Better than He did Me=(
I waited for six months to see the doctor. His office staff misplaced my paper-work twice. On the day I was supposed to have the consultation, I was told they were no longer accepting my insurance. In a way, I was glad I did not get to see the doctor, because if this is the "level of care" with the paper-work, I could not imagine the quality of the actual medical care. Beyond disappointing.
