My wife and I continue to visit Scott and White for our health care primarily because we are so pleased with Dr. Smita Patel. She is the best primary care physician we have ever had, and we have recommended her to our friends (one of whom is a retired physician himself) who have told us they agree that she is excellent. She listens and responds to questions with clarity and detail. She never makes us feel that she is in a hurry, but takes the time needed to give a thorough examination. She often brings things to our attention, such as the new Shingles vaccination, and she pays close attention to our health records. I can't say enough good things about her.

Nurse assistant was friendly and enthusiastic. I love Dr. Patel. Her manner is calm and unrushed. She listens attentively to any concerns or questions. she gives thorough explanations and tells you how things affect your entire body system and gives you suggestions on how to improve your health with no judgement. I love how she explains things by giving practical examples that are easy to understand - like how excess blood sugar is like having a penny in the dryer and it makes dents in the metal drum.

At previous clinics, I have been hurried through the appointment and physicians made it clear that I could only discuss one issue due to billing. I went to the clinic for a sore throat/sinus issue and was prepared to deal with that alone. Dr. Patel's thoroughness in reviewing my medical history and listening to my concerns led to 2 referrals and a follow up appointment for a physical. I was very impressed by Dr. Patel and the overall professionalism and teamwork of the staff.

she is intelligent and listens and applies common sense . I have recommended her several times to this clinic however, potential PTS don't like the idea of paying twice one for appts then for use of building!Honestly, I don't understand the idea well enough to explain it . your comprehensive care works for me for now.. to bad because Dr Patel is very professional and caring don't see that much in many offices.
