For my initial consultation, Dr. Patel’s first available was ~4 months away, but I was assured he was the one to see for my condition. About 2 weeks before my appointment, a nurse called and asked if it would be ok for me to show up ~2 hours past my appointment time as he is very thorough with his patients. I obliged, and am extremely happy I did so. At no point during my consultation did anything feel rushed at all. He is all ears while simultaneously taking notes and forming answers or follow up questions for the conversation. He is a very soothing man and his affect wears off on you. This takes away any pressure you may feel by a typical physician to get you in and out in a hurry, which aided in me remembering to ask some specific questions and eased the relationship into a positive experience. I believe I got nearly 60 minutes of facetime with him, which is impressive for someone who knows his specialty so very well and is in such demand!
