How likely are you to recommend Dr. Patel?

(Select your rating)
I love how thorough Dr. Patel is with his patience! It is very convenient now that the lab is right there in the office for drawing blood. There is somewhat of a wait we’re going to his office, not during Covid, but that is because he is so thorough with each patient and gives them the time and care that is needed. He’s an excellent diagnostician and a caring physician. As an RN it is difficult to find a position that you can trust, know, and like as a treating physician. The wait time is the only reason for 4 1/2 stars versus five.
