Verified Patient Reviews
I came in for a Primary Care Doctor and found that Dr. Patel was taking in adult patients as well. She's kind and honest as well as reassuring. I feel comfortable with her and the nurse. I trusted the reviews on ZocDoc before making a decision on a doctor near me and I'm glad I went with her.
