Verified Patient Reviews
The staff are professional, courteous, and efficient. Dr Patel is professional, thorough and kind.
Dr. Patel was clear with his diagnosis and listened to my concerns and worked towards the right solution. I appreciate his efforts towards making me feel comfortable.
The office is very well organized very friendly and clean environment
Dr Patel took the time to go over everything and explain exactly what sleep apnea entails. I was able to schedule an appointment for the actual sleep apnea test within 2 weeks
Amazing! He knew exactly how to unclog my ear and checked my nose and throat to make sure it wasn't something more serious.
I waited forever in the patient room. Finally, his PA came in first and asked a ton of questions and looked in my nose and ear. She left, told the doctor. When he walked in, he didn't even touch me. Told me to immediately go to get a cat scan of my sinuses and come back. I did that, came back and waited. The receptionist finally gave my CD to the PA again and she looked at it and said nothing was wrong with me and that the doctor suggests I see a pulmonologist. Worst day ever. A wasted trip with no answers and no relief. SO FRUSTRATED!
my visit was excellent, keep it up
Dr patel was pretty much on time with my appointment. The exam room was large and comfortable.
Very informative and helpful. Made me feel very comfortable.
The doctor is fine. His staff is horrible. They scheduled a sleep study appointment for me, and said they'd handle everything with my insurance. On the day of the study appointment I had to call them to make sure it was still on, and they had no record of my appointment. Then they canceled my sleep study, saying they had to figure out if my insurance covered the study. Three weeks later I still never heard back. It took me 15 minutes on the phone with my insurance company to figure out everything was covered. Also, they wrote my appointment date and time on a piece of loose computer paper. Incompetent!
Very detailed information about my issue.did all the testing needed at the time.will return after my testing results
Dr. Patel was very informative and clearly/concisely explained what was happening with me.
Dr. Patel received me warmly and listen to my problem. He made a accuracy diagnosis and performed treatment right away to provide relief to my concerns.
The office visit was good service, His professional were entreating and helpful due to my health issue. I was glad his schedule was open right away knowing I wasn't feeling well.
He and his P.A. were excellent and right on point with everything. The Medical Assistant was super friendly. I did however, feel the the receptionist could have been a bit more welcoming, especially as I was a new patient.
The provider was okay-- office staff were slow, discourteous and unprofessional. I value providers who are professional and polite. They were more than two weeks late in following up with me and when they finally did, were incredibly rude--follow-up was absolutely horrible. Will never go to this provider's office again and certainly will not recommend them.
Dr's were pleasant and explained why it's important to know the underlying problem as well as the obvious ones.
The office staff are unfriendly and unresponsive. They did not follow up with me in a timely fashion to schedule follow up tests. Very disappointing performance!
It was a pleasure to be there..everyone was so helpful and professional. Dr.shoma was really nice
Very well experienced Dr and so talented
Dr. Patel was very knowledgeable he explained my issue in plain language and provided a simple solution that had me feeling better before I left his office.
Very rushed visit
I arrived early and was seen on time. Every step of the treatment was explained to me before and after they applied. Highlt recommend this office.
For me it was a waste of time/money. I realize that it's the doctor's prerogative to determine treatment, but I went to a sleep doctor with complaint of anxiety-induced insomnia and a history of successful treatment with medication. You'd think he'd prescribe something to help me sleep, but instead just said to buy a "blue light" off of Amazon.com and to come in for expensive overnight sleep studies. Note that his profile says that he accepts CareFirst BSBS PPO, but I still had to pay out of pocket. What a huge waste.
He is not a bad doctor at all really help me with my hearing problem. I would go back to him if I need to for future visit.
Everyone was nice, the Dr. was very to the point and had good manners.
The Clinic was very clean , the staff were very pleasant and professional, and Dr Patel was very knowledgeable with an excellent bedside manner, The PA was wonderful too, I was very satified with the overall care
I loved it and they were very professional, fast, and friendly! I would definitely recommend them and take my daughter back again!
I had an excellent visit
They are professional in their field and attended to me at my appointment time.
The office is very nice and clean and the staff is very warm and professional! Makes you feel great and positive about the visit.
I had to wait approximety 30 minutes before they put me in a room and when I did get there I felt like the consultation was very rushed like the doctor couldn't wait to get out.
I ma thrilled. The office staff and doctor were wonderful. Very pleasant. I walked out with hearing I had suffered with for several months. Dr. Patel didwhat was necessary to resolve my problem immediately.
Relatively short waiting time and friendly staff. PA is nice and performed the examination, but Dr. Patel supervised the procedure and diagnose. Very satisfied with the efficiency.
It was very informative and Im confident that their treatment will help overcome my health issues.
My visit went well. The staff was very professional and knowledgeable.
He was up to the task and took his time to examine my problem and explain to me the issue and treatment. Excellent! !
He was knowledgeable
My visit with Dr. Patel was most enjoyable. First of all, the waiting room and the patient areas are second to none in terms of being neat, clean, and orderly. Dr. Patel, as well as his assistant, proved to be very warm and kind and caring individuals. The ladies at the front desk were also very warm and friendly. His assistant saw me first and got the details on why I was there prior to the good doctor coming in. Dr. Patel flushed out my left ear, gave me a disinfectant, and sent me on my way. I highly recommend Dr. Patel to anyone who is in need of a doctor who specializes in ear, nose, throat, and sleep disorders.
very cheerful, answered all my questions.
Great and spent a lot of time with me.
Great doctor. Diagnosed me really quick. Very knowledgeable
Wonderful. ....the staff was friendly and they ease your mind with any doubts you may have..
Very professional staff, clean office, and gentle care.
he was great at explaining potential causes for my issue and confirming them with the examination. He made recommendations for next steps and we are going from there.
The waiting room was so nice and clean. I was seen pretty quickly even after I had to fill out paperwork (which I already did thanks to ZocDoc, but I did have to inform the clerk, which, if I remember correctly, you have to inform them). Once I was called in for the doctor to see me, they all greeted me in such a kind manner that is rare in doctor's offices these days. The doctors including Dr. Patel were very nice, however the other doctor (not Dr. Patel) was kind of rushing when I was explaining my history and previous treatments. Other than that, I would definitely recommend this ENT and Sleep Specialist/Office.
I was received in the office with warmth and was processed immediately with little wait time. Dr. Patel made a thorough evaluation of my complaint and explained his findings in understandable terms. I am satisfied with his instructions for me to get better.
He helped determine that my son did not have an inner ear imbalance, and he did a sleep study on me for snoring. But he is not a general sleep specialist. He only deals with insomnia related to ear-nose and throat and restless leg syndrome. He does not deal with behavioral insomnia or with menopause related insomnia. He is great with the other things though.
The doctor was very informative, which I appreciate, and thorough in his examination. All my questions were answered in detail. I do wish I could have seen the doctor at my stated appointment time, rather than spending almost an hour in the waiting room.
Excellent Service I met with Doctor Kanu Patel and not an assistant. Will be back in a years time.
I really enjoyed my visit with Dr. Patel. Rarely do you meet a doctor who is as kind and willing to listen to your problems/complaints as he is. Moreover, he actually takes the time to explain to you what he is doing and why during checkups. I will definitely come back to Dr. Patel in the future for all my ENT related concerns. Only issue I is with the front desk staff/wait. I waited about 40 min for my appointment even though there was almost no one else in the waiting room when I arrived. The staff took over half an hour to confirm my insurance information and in the end it was still inconclusive.
Dr. Patel was a great provider when I first started coming to him three years ago but as his practice grew, I became very dissatisfied with his services. He's hired additional staff, so when you schedule with him its not a guarantee that you'll see him. Twice I scheduled supposedly with him and to my surprised was seen by a PA or NP. I've noticed he only sees patients that he performs surgery on typically. His front office staff is unpredictable the service you receives depends on the type of day they are having. It's unclear who's the front office manager.
Doctor and staff performed in a very caring manner.
He is very pleasant, knowledgeable and is flexible in working with your needs, especially if you have a high deductible and are basically self-pay.
Dr. Patel was very professional in his approach, friendly, and extremely informative. He spent the necessary time to make sure I understood everything about my condition. The only down side to the visit was the wait. I don't understand why this, or any other physician asks you to be at the office at a certain time if they have no intention of getting to you until nearly an hour later. Just make the appointment time reflect reality.
Thorough, would recommend.
My visit was really good.
Dr. Patel was nice and professional throughout. He likes getting to the root cause of the problem and won't prescribe antibiotics unless needed. I am appreciative of his methods.
Wait was a little long..this could be due to being a new patient. Everyone was very nice and the doctors really semmed to care about their patients. They werre very informative and understanding. The PA was very nice. Would definitely recommend!
Although, it was Dr. Michael who did my check-up, everything went well. I was very satisfied with their service. I was able to talk to Dr. Patel after the consultation with Dr. Michael. My experience went well as I expected. Thank you.
It was fine and everything went well.
Excellent service ! Dr Patel was very nice and I would highly recommend him.
He asked questions, paid attention to what I said and responsed. Made suggestions and I will go back for follow up.
Very professional. Courteous staff. Short wait time. Clear description of what was going to be done and options to remedy the situation
Dr Patel is very knowledgeable and personable, and has a friendly staff. Highly recommend.
I was very please with my visit. I have a follow up in two week.
It was a great visit. Dr. was very friendly and professional along with his office staff.
Never recommend this Dr. It is just a waste in both time and money if you go there. I sat an appointment and they gave me an expensive night sleep study test and when I took the result to the Dr, he did not care about the results! He then said he is going to schedule another day study in few days. they did not get back to me in three months about that test. This is the first time that I am happy that they forget to call me for about three months since I could solve my sleepiness and tiredness just with two cup of coffee during the day! They just made a business and don't care about your problem!
Very friendly and did a lot of tests to get to the bottom of the problem
Very fast service, friendly staff, and the intern who helped me was very nice. I'll be making my follow up appointment here as well
Dr. Patel, was very patient with me. He listened, and did not interupt. He recommended some over the counter medication and asked that I provide him with my last ear test examination. He explained what my ear issue might be, but did not state what it was without revewing the test. I was very please with him and will made a returned visit.
Very good service, only complaint is that while you may book an appointment (and read reviews) about one physician, that doesn't mean that's who you'll get. However, my doctor was very clear, knowledgeable and I'm perfectly happy with the service I received.
Excellent, very knowledgeable. I specially recommending him for sleeping problems, although his advice on my rinitis was very good too. Sure bet.
They require payment prior to seeing the Dr. How ever I didn't know they didn't take checks and I don't carry cash. So I had to go to an ATM to get cash to pay for the visit . and honestly I walked out wondering why I even went
it was great and very warm. I really appreciated the approach and the availability. I also enjoyed the ambiance.
I did like that I had an appointment and still had to wait another 30 minutes... What's the point of the appointment.
I love his use of technology to check on my health concerns.
Dr. Patel is compassionate and will really listen to your concerns.
Was very please with my vist
Excellent Doctor, he made it very easy and explained all possible medical issues that I might have. Clinic staff were very friendly . Highly recommended
I have been a patient of Dr. Kanu for a little over two years. During my visits, he was extremely professional and was a very good listener who cared about my health issues and effectively thought of a solution to my health concerns and communicated it to me. In my book, I enjoyed the services rendered by Dr. Kanu and his staff in developing and maintaining professional relationships with their patients which is good customer service.
I was very impressed with Dr. Patel's knowledge and interest in helping me with my sleep problem. He does not rush to prescribe you medication but really works with what works best for you naturally.
Great professional guy. I would definitely recommend doctor kanu. He and he's staff Make me feel Welcome here in md. I recently move here from staten island ny Thank you zocdoc. ny
Dr. Patel was very fast ( my wait time was about 15 mins), thorough, honest in answering my questions and patient. In addition the staff were very friendly.

Very professional and he trust his clinical wisdom.
I came in with a sinus infection that I had for about 4 weeks off and on. After seeing a couple of doctors I just couldn't shake the cold. So I looked up Dr. Patel at ZocDocx. He diagnosis my condition and was extremely thorough in the exam. I was very pleased and starting to feel much better.
Very professional, knowledgeable, and timely.

I am very satisfied with the office. Seemed genuinely concerned about my needs and questions.
ZocDoc, I love ya, and Dr. Kanu,just as much!
He was excellent and to the point with my diagnosis. He explained in detail the cause of my problem and what to expect going forward.
The Front Desk clerk was very rude and unprofessional.She was also rude to the person in front of us. After being there for 45 minutes we ask how long was the wait. The front desk clerk has not given any paper work to the doctor because we had not paid yet. The clerk never indicated what the fee was so we were just sitting and waiting. The nurse and Doctor was very nice. But the clerk will cause you to loose patients because had it not been a visit for my son I would have left.
Great. He performed the necessary procedures. However, he did not followup on my last complaint - not even quick visual check into my ears.
Dr. Patel was very thorough. He was professional but carrying and very knowledgeable. He had good bedside manners. I would highly recommend him.
Front desk was very professional and i did not wait much. The overall atmosphere and service was excellent.
Dr. Patel was very professional and very friendly.
