Really great doctor, very friendly and explained things very well.
Very informative, great doctor & Mr. Larson
I was very impressed with Dr. Patel. He spent quite a bit of time with me on this first visit and I was very satisfied with what he prescribed for me. Mention should be made that the SW Barnes office is right within the hospital complex. I was pleased to find the free parking in the garage also.
Dr. Patel was so nice! He has a warm personality and makes you feel comfortable. Would definitely recommend him especially if you have anxiety about going to the doctors. I had a great experience.
A kind genuine dr. Who gives you his full attention and time. So often I feel rushed during a doctors visit. But not the case with dr Patel.
It was awesome, I went there to get my ears cleaned, but the service I got was incredibly great. I can't explain it to it almost peak but if you visit Dr Andrew Patel, you won't be disappointed.
Dr. Patel took the time to explain, very concisely, every step of the process, and made me feel at ease with the decisions that needed to be made. Highly recommend!
