He was OUTSTANDING! He and staff spent time with me. Many docs I've seen, unfortunately don't recognize issues outside their area of expertise. Dr. Patel, however, easily recognized my problems had either exceeded just allergies or were not allergy related. As someone who has a biomedical phd and two years medschool education, I could tell he was performing all the needed or even helpful tests but not unnecessary ones. I have no complaints about driving 20 miles to see him..he is terrific!
