I recently changed my specialty provider for lack of attention to my care that delayed recertification for my care. Dr. Patel is probably the only reason that I am staying with Baylor Scott and White after nearly 37 years. Dr. Patel is friendly, professional, responds and answers my questions. if she leaves, I will probably sever my ties with BS&W.

Lastly, Dr. Patel makes you feel comfortable and reassured during the whole visit constantly keeping you a part of her medical decision making. HIGHLY recommend Dr. Patel!

I love my Doctor. She explains everything in detail, encourages positive changes for my overall health, and I feel she genuinely cares about me as her patient. She always gets it right when dealing with my health issues and steers me in the right direction (in terms of referrals) if it's something that requires a specialty. Prescription approvals are always on time. I couldn't be happier with Dr. Patel. I really trust her and we can talk about even the most personal things without me being embarrassed. She really represents Baylor Scott & White well. It is doctors like her that set the standard for excellence that I expect at BS&W.

Dr. Patel is a wonderful caring doctor. I started seeing her a year ago when I had some concerns about my health and she spent time with me going over everything and explaining things to where I could understand what was going on. Every time I see her she has a smile on her face even though I know sometimes her schedule is hectic. She's friendly and very deeply concerned about your health. I wish all doctors were as caring as dr. Patel.

I called in the morning and they got me right in. It's the first time with this doctor. Since we are new to Scott and White. I was very pleased with Dr. Patel. She was very kind very informative and spent a lot of time with me as a new patient. I am very happy I chose her. She reacted to my condition right away and set up for me to see a physical therapist that day. I felt comfortable with her and she showed she truly cared. I went home and told my husband and he will also go to see her as a primary care now. She was extremely nice and I felt very comfortable with her. Also the nurse that took me back there in the room before she came in was also very nice. My doctor I had previously just retired. I had gone to her for 30 years so it was hard for me to find someone that I truly trusted and felt comfortable with. And I felt this with Dr. Patel so I am looking forward to having her as my primary now. Thank you so much. I I have nothing but wonderful things to say about my whole visit
