she listens and engages and in this very difficult time that really even makes more of an impression than usual . Because she is personable you build trust with a provider. She is intelligent but practical that's why I have recommended her to people however , there exists a barrier sometimes and they complain that you charge for a building fee as well as the visit...

Dr. Patel is so great. She takes the time to make sure all your questions and concerns are taken care of and explains your test results to you so that the best plan for your health issues can be addressed. She is amazingly cheerful when she enters the room and makes you at ease immediately. I can't imagine going to anyone else.

Dr. Patel is a compassionate, concerned and caring professional who gets to know her patients by actively listening to their concerns and and ensures she understands their issues. However, she utilizes her time effectively while meeting patient needs. I have been more than happy with her services on the several years she has been my primary care physician and have recommended her to others that I know.

I did not choose Dr. Patel, but b/c I did not have a Primary physician selected and after a stint in the hospital for pneumonia, a follow-up appointment was scheduled for me with her. I went, hesitantly, as I was always adamant about choosing my own doctor. She was great from the initial meeting. I love her and have not had a better experience with any doctor - although I will always rate my OBGYN as heavenly - but Patel is fantastic. I have never had a bad experience and each time I go in, I am amazed at the amount of time she spends with me, answering questions, etc. I have NEVER felt rushed to get in and out. She is WONDERFUL.

As always my visit with Dr. Patel was excellent. She is one of the most caring, kindest, and professional I have had to date. Being the wife of a veteran, we have lived all over and had numerous providers, so that speaks volumes. Three years ago we moved to Louisiana and as soon as we relocated back to this area we immediately sought out her care! She and her nurse are outstanding. Dr. Patal NEVER makes you feel rushed, she takes her time and LISTENS to your issues and works with you as a team to ensure you get the best care and that you are invested in your health! 10 star
