Verified Patient Reviews
I had a nice first visit with Dr. Patel. She made me feel comfortable and informed me of other issues I had no idea about! So I appreciated that. The appointment was quick, but I didn't feel rushed. The one thing I wish Dr. Patel went over in more detail was the lab sampling/culture process because I know my insurance works with a different lab then the one the office typically uses, but overall it was a good visit and I have scheduled a follow up! I will certainly be using her in the future and recommending her to others!
Being the fact it was my first time the visit was great and she was very knowledgeable about what was going on with my daughter.

Dr. Patel is awesome. I recommended her to my mom. She listens to you when you talk & responds accordingly. Although the front desk could be a little more friendly & should acknowledge you when you come in. The rest of the staff is good and friendly.
