Dr. Patel was wonderful. He was knowledgeable, caring, and listened very carefully and recommended helpful specialized tips for my complex health situation. He was very pleasant as well. Thanks doc!
Dr. Patel is a pain doctor and not one of the docs I needed. But he did give me good advice and helped as much as he could; very kind. And he was helpful in referring me to a specific doctor.
Dr Patel was very informative and very helpful and I felt much better having received his expert advice.
Excellent information and was good to speak to someone about my problems thank you
