Took my father in for an initial consult after having some disturbing CT results. We were super worried all week and after meeting Dr. Patel we feel a huge weight lifted off our hearts. He is thorough, sincere and prompt. Would recommend him to all.

Dr. Patel is simply the best. I am a physician in a different specialty and take a family member of mine to see him. He is one of the most knowledgeable physicians I have ever met. Besides being an excellent clinician,he is a beautiful person. He's caring, goes out of his way for his patients, and truly takes time to explain things to his patients in a way they understand (even in Spanish too!). If you are looking for a Hematologist or Oncologist, look no further, you have found your physician! Not only will I refer my patients to him, but I trust him with my family!

Excellent and professional care. I've met too many doctors who phone it in when speaking to a patient. Dr Patel treated me as someone who is invested in my own care and that can be be all too rare. Highly recommended.
