Extremely pleased with professional n needed help provided in very timely manner. Amit M
They gave me the correct diagnosis (that urgent care missed). They were able to get me into an earlier appointment than the one I originally scheduled. They answered all my questions fully and were helpful getting my prescription filled after all the pharmacies in the area didn't have what the Doctor originally prescribed. Thank you - will be back again for any eye care needs!
Dr Patel, his assistants and receptionists were very professional and helpful. I will definitely utilize his services again. Thanks!
Dr. Patel was my ideal in every way: kind, patient, conscientious, clear. He gave me more than enough time to understand my eye issues. Also, Sonia, his assistant, was lovely. This was the very best experience I've had with any doctor in a long time.
My visit was with a different doctor, not Dr. Patel
