Patient Reviews
Sep 13, 2020
Dr. Patel is exceptional. I live in Spokane and was told that my eye could not be repaired (I had problems when my cataract lens dislodged). I was facing permanent vision issues. I looked up experts and found Dr. Patel. Not only did he fix the problem, he was a delight to work with. He's a wonderful surgeon. I felt completely at ease. It was worth the trips from Spokane to Tacoma.
