This is the only pain specialist I have e ever seen that was not judgemental, and look at me like an attic. I have a lot of painful health issues and he is the first Dr of any kind that hasever fully explained it all to me and how it all linked together. I absolutely love, love ,love him, he is truely amazing and very sympathetic. I honestly may move to Georgia from SC to be his patient.

This was my first visit and based on the ratings I had high expectations. The MD who I saw seemed like he was in a hurry... I felt that I was not taken seriously and that was extremely disappointing. I don'tknow if it was due to the high volume of patients there at the time but I am going to give this practice another chance since I am scheduled with a different MD. I hope it is not the same since I am uninsured and paying ALOT of money to come here.

Horrible experience. More money driven than most practices. Minimal direct patient contact. Ill-informed and extremely unprofessional. Would recommend avoiding. You can find better... Patel isn't terrible, it just seems he is overstretchedwith multiple practice locations and less than optimal mid-level providers. He probably has minimal control over the practice structure, but none the less, the patients suffer.

I asked in advance could he treat me for pain management and supplied all of my x-rays mri and pharmacy records and he wanted to go another route with my treatment!I was miss informed off the phone and wasted my time today! Yours truly., in chronic pain!

He's the best. Dr. Patel is the third pain management specialist referred by my personal doctor because I wasn't making significant progress with my pain management. An office visit with him is like sitting on your porch talking to a dearfriend. Dr. Patel spoke very respectfully of my previous pain management doctors. However, he has been more through his diagnosis and treatment of my condition. Dr Patel also discovered an additional undiscovered condition and referred me back to cardiologist and my personal doctor for follow up.
