Pretty good. I booked appointment, and arrived 10 mins early for my appointment since I figured I needed to fill out some paperwork as a new patient. Still had to wait an hour. But besides that, everything was pretty good.

What a sweet and empathic doctor! This is the first time I’ve felt like I was taken seriously and listened to by a physician. He was knowledgable about the full range of exams needed for my condition, which I usually would have had to go to a specialist for. He even was curious about my mental health, which many doctors I’ve been to don’t really care about. Dr. Patel is a star!!!

Dr Patel is an absolute gentlemen and professional. He and his staff are so pleasant, courteous, and always answer your questions and leave you feeling better than when you came in. I can’t say enough what a blessing it is to have Dr Patel as my primary care doctor, and hope to do so for many many years to come.

Dr. Patel and his staff were absolutely AMAZING! I was greeted with a smile and a spotless office. He took his time with getting to know me as a new patient and genuinely listened to every word. After my annual checkup exam we sat down in his office to go over any and all questions that I had. I would most definetely recommend him. Its is SO incredibly hard, especially in todays world to find a good doctor who actually cares about the patient...and I can honestly say he does; and extremely professional. Thank you!

Took over an hour from my appointment time to get called back by the physician's assistant, who barely said a word to me, perhaps because she was new and still training, but at least a simple "hello, how are you" would be appreciated, or an apology for the long wait. Then once Dr Patel came in and I explained to him my frustration with his past service (excluding this current visit), he kept cutting me off before I could finish. I have a controlled medication, and had to call his office 5 times before I could get my next prescription filled, and had to go 3 days without it because of this. He tried to appease me by making small talk about my profession but ended up making a comment that was pretty insulting. I'm not sure I'll be coming back here in the future. My first appointment with him was great and very thorough, but these other experiences have been awful and incredibly unprofessional.

This office appears very dirty. The medical assistant was extremely rude. She yelled at me when i called three times for my results because they weren't ready in 2 weeks, when i was told them would be ready in a few days. I cant believe any professional would speak to someone the way she spoke to me.

This was my first time with Doc Patel. It was great he’s really a kind man! I had passed out during my blood drawing and he was helpful in explaining how common it is and even gave me food and water afterward. 10/10 would recommend Doc!!!
