The whole experience was unlike any other I've ever had in a doctor's office. Before you enter the basement office, brace yourself for the total chaos that will follow. You'll find yourself in a standing-room-only waiting room (which desperatelyneeds a facelift or at least a coat of paint on all four walls, not just three), and you may (or may not) be greeted by front-desk staff utterly incapable of multi-tasking and managing such a large number of patients. Although he calls himself a nephrologist, the doctor might be more appropriately called an "immigration exam doctor." It seemed like everyone in the waiting room was there for medical clearance for immigration; you'll see plenty of passports being shuffled about. There was a cacophony of multiple foreign languages being spoken simultaneously. When you get called by the medical assistant, which for me was done relatively quickly, she will take you into the blood-draw room to take your vitals. Be forewarned: this room is not for the queasy or fainthearted; you'll see vials of blood and specimen cups filled with urine right in front of you. And don't be surprised if office staff or even other patients just saunter right in while your vitals are being taken. After your vitals are taken, you'll be shuttled back to the overcrowded waiting room, which by now may (or may not) have an open seat for you. You'll be treated to more foreign-language chatter and front-desk frenetics as you wait to be called again. About 20-25 minutes after my appointment time, the doctor's nurse practitioner called me into the exam room. The room was a cluttered mess, with boxes stacked on a desk in the back. There was an examination table with crumpled cover paper on it, clearly indicating that it was not cleaned after another patient had been in the room prior to me. I sat in a chair in front of another desk, behind which the NP sat and dutifully entered my medical history as I answered her questions. The nurse practitioner was fine and seemed competent, despite some minor hiccups, but nowhere was it mentioned on Zocdoc that I would be seeing an NP instead of the doctor himself. She explained that she would see me first and "because this is your first appointment, the doctor will also see you." Does that mean that I won't see the doctor on follow-up visits? At some point during the NP's taking my medical history, the doctor walked into the room. He was pleasant, introduced himself, looked over the NP's shoulder to read my medical history on the computer screen, and reviewed my paperwork. I asked him a question about a medication that he answered fully and clearly. As he was answering me, a front-desk staff member just waltzed right into the room without even knocking on the door and interrupted the doctor as he was speaking to me. When the interloper left, the doctor gave me instructions to follow up with him -- but, again, who knows if it will really be with him or the NP? I saw the NP for about 15-20 minutes and the doctor for about 10 minutes. To be fair, though, everything that I expected to accomplish at the visit was in fact accomplished. So, if you can look past the poor aesthetics and lack of cleanliness, if you can endure a modest wait (not the 2-hour wait that other reviewers complained about) in an overcrowded waiting room in which you might have to stand, if you don't mind the lack of privacy, if seeing an NP will do the trick, or if you need medical clearance for immigration, this is the place for you. If not, I'd suggest you go elsewhere.

He was very off putting and snippy in his demeanor. I felt he was simply talking at me instead of to me which was very unappreciated. Very abrupt and abrasive. I will not return.

His office was also his bedroom/living room. I was in a third world country in his office. I don't know how this place isn't shut down. Patents going in and out of my patient room. I had to tell doctor tokick these people out because there was no privacy. I really don't know how I stayed... Never ever again.

He has assistants and what looks to be more than one doctor in his office. I was in a room full of 5 people. Someone on here complained that it felt less private because there are lots of people around. Howeverthis is a good thing as I felt like I was being given attention by the entire office. I had more than one person asking me questions and that was great. I did not think the receptionist was rude unless them laughing and having conversations between each other is bad. I rather this than lifeless robotic depressed receptionist. Everyone did there job just fine and that is all that matters. The wait time was not very long but I rather wait long because it shows that the doctor is giving time to his patients. People who complain about long wait times are stupid. The office had an Indian ethnic vibe about it but looked decent. The doctor/ doctors spoke fluent English. I was worried about that but was glad they spoke good English.

He doesn't listen to you. It seems like he is always in hurry. There is no privacy sort of thing around. You will see other people (non-staff) walking around. It feels like you are at someone's home. I would never go back again.

My appointment was for annual checkup. I was called to preponed the appointment as doctor has some emergency visit some where. When I reached office (20 min before rescheduled) appointment doctor was not available at that time. I agree thatthere could be emergency but what was the point for preponing the schedule? Doctor came after an hour of scheduled timing and he seemed in hurry and the meeting was over in 2 minutes. Office didn't seem a doctor clinic at all.

Treated for issue which i did not have. False assurance for providing supporting kit covered under insurance but was never provided after multiple follow up with the staff. 2 visit but highly unsatisfactory. Personally i wont recommend if you are looking for perfect treatment and gracious followups

He didn't want me as a patient even when I offered to pay out of pocket. Office staff never informed me that the doctor did not participate with my insurance. Doctor made zero eye contact and seemed very uncomfortable and rushedeven though there were no patients beside me. He is very odd and unhelpful. Office seemed like it operated out of a foreign country. Reception was very nice unlike the doctor.

I'm not sure why we made an appointment - We waited over and hour and half. Office was in the basement, wasn't very clean, and had an interesting smell. Once we saw the doctor - he was very abrupt and difficultto understand - he had another person in the room but didn't introduce her - i think it maybe was his daughter or someone he was training? Wasn't worth the copay. I wouldn't recommend to anyone who has another option. We went to someone else.

The doctor was very good. I liked him very much. He listened to all my problems and gave a very comprehensive feedback. He also explained the answers to all my queries well. The only negative part was the wait time. Ihad the appointment at 3.15 pm and I saw the doctor at 5.15. It was an exact two hour wait for me!

Dr. Patel was fine, however, his office was difficult to find (it's in the basement of a building), and all of his staff members were native Spanish speakers which made it difficult to understand what they were saying at times. Iwas also supposed to go in for lab work, however, they didn't inform me I needed to schedule an appointment, they just told me the day and time they opened. When I showed up the people at the lab said they couldn't see me until 5hours later. I won't be going back to this office.
