I am so fortunate to have met Dr. Patel and that he remains my doctor. The doctor is kind and confident and so concerned in making sure he has all the facts and makes sure my profile is correct and reminding me of procedures I am lacking in my profile. I'm not sure I've met a doctor whom I have great admiration for and confidence in!

My son is a 26 year old autistic young man and Dr. Patel has always shown in-depth care and knowledge in the care of my son. I can tell Dr. Patel takes the time to go over my son's medical history before he sees him for an appointment, I don't have to keep repeating my son's history as I've had to in the past with other providers and that makes me feel valued knowing that my son is being cared for and that he matters.

Dr.Patel. Is very patient and caring. He listens to what I am saying and include me in all decisions that are being made. I was very hesitant to try this office due to the reviews I read, but Im glad I did. From the upfront staff to the PAs. They are all professional and patient. I would definitely recommend Dr. Patel and staff.

I have gone to this provider a couple years. He consistently "chooses" what he listens to and instills little confidence. Office manner can be abrupt and his advice often ambiguous. He may be ok with colds and sniffles but I would not recommend him for more complex cases. I have decided to look for another provider.
