I had visited Dr. Patel to get my wisdom teeth removed. When I visited two other oral surgeons, they had advised I was required to be put to sleep. When Dr. Patel gave me the option of having the teeth removed the same day and awake, I was relieved to get the procedure done. It took him only two minutes to remove my two wisdom teeth and costed way less than if I had to be put to sleep. It's been a day since I had the procedure done and there's extremely little pain plus I'm eating normal food again. I'm very glad I had this procedure done by Dr. Patel and highly recommend him if u want a quick painless procedure.

Not the best experience, mainly because he is rushing. He made diagnosis without spending time asking questions and gathering the information, and I found out from another surgeon later that the treatment he suggested was obviously not optimal for my case. The extraction surgery was also really rushed. It went really quick and I had small cuts on my gums and lips that really hurt few days after, I thought that could be avoided with simple extraction like that if he didn't try to rush Overall it was a bad experience and I had much better experience later with Dr. Ledger. Another thing worth mentioning is the billing. You have to pay everything upfront and they reimburse for you with insurance later. Mine never came through after 3 month waiting, could just be my individual case tho.

Dr. Patel and his staff were so understanding of my urgent predicament, and made an effort to see me immediately for a wisdom tooth extraction. Though I'm sitting on my couch writing this with puffy cheeks, and gauze in my mouth, I'm really grateful for their professionalism, and commitment to getting me taken care of as fast as possible.

I was not greeted by receptionist upon arriving . Once I saw Dr. Patel he seemed very cold and has horrible bedside manner . I felt like he could care less about me as a patient. No way I was going to let him perform any oral surgery on me. I went somewhere else and received top notch care .

I went in for a consultation on getting my wisdom teeth removed. The whole process was very efficient and everyone was very professional. I am no doubt about his qualification and skills (have heard very good things about him), and would highly recommend. The only small thing was that everything felt a bit rushed- the doctor didn't have a lot of time to explain everything in detail and answer every question. Other than that, everything was great.

Dr. Patel is amazing as an oral surgeon. I healed very well after my wisdom tooth extraction thanks to his expertise. I did wish that the initial wisdom tooth consult was less rushed and that he had gone over everything that was going to occur during the operation again before putting me under the day of.

I just got my wisdom teeth extracted from here! Dr Patel is amazing, the surgery was faster than I expected (less than half an hour!). His team was quick and efficient, they made a uncomfortable extraction as painless and as quick as possible. Highly recommend him!

Super fast and painless! I had one side of wisdom teeth extracted by another dentist and felt Dr. Patel's side was substantially less painful. My husband accompanied me to my appointment and had a few questions about scheduling his extractions, they were able to squeeze him in for x-rays and a consultation. His procedures will be a bit more involved than mine were but we definitely appreciated saving some time!

Dr was fast and efficient. Had an extraction in record time. Nurse and front desk representative was also pleasant and efficient at correcting an over charge. She showed concern and made me feel like she cared about me start to finish. I'll go back for an implant at some point but i won't book through zocdoc because the office couldn't find my appointment today. The office still fit me in at my scheduled time which was great. Next time i'll just book directly with the office. Sorry Zoc. I heard the person checking in next to me having the same issue. Maybe you can follow up with them and fix the problem So other patients dont have this problem.

Overall my visit was great. I had two wisdom teeth taken out. It was pretty painless procedure. The women who work at the office were very helpful to answer all my questions and even called the day after the surgery to check on me which was a first for any doctor I've been to! They were also very genuine & comforting after my surgery. Dr. Kam can seem "rushed" but when I asked questions he seemed genuine in answering them. Only thing that would have made it better was if they would have explained a little more what my procedure experience would be like, such as what being sedated is like when you wake up since it was my first time. But they made up for it by how well they took care of me after I woke up and with the follow up.

I cannot say enough about Dr Patel and the entire staff. My wisdom teeth were hurting so badly I couldn't sleep and so on Saturday morning I scheduled an appointment to have them removed Monday afternoon. Now it's Tuesday morning, I have very little pain and no wisdom teeth. Dr Patel made me feel so comfortable about the entire procedure and checked on me after when I was in the recovery room. The staff was very friendly and attentive. I will recommend Dr Patel to anyone who needs an oral surgeon. Thank you!

Dr Patel is very good surgeon. He removed my bone-in impacted wisdom tooth with zero complication. I had miminal swelling and pain after surgery. With that said, I felt a little rushed during the consultation. He didn't really explain/walk me through the procedure as i hoped. However, that's minor issue since my surgery went well. I'd recommend Dr. Patel to others.
