Dr. Patel is a great asset. I'm quite stubborn about certain meds but he is perfectly persistent and patient. His insistence convinced me of the need and benefits of lowering my blood pressure. I have taken the meds and they are working well. He has many traits not found in most doctors that we as patients appreciate.

I was supposed to see a different doctor but I had already been at the clinic over and hour and in the exam room 25 minutes when Dr. Patel came in and said he would see me since the other doctor didnt know when he would be in. I thought that Dr. Patel went over and above when he took on someone else work load to help them and also to help me. I can only say that that act can restore beliefs and trust.
