I liked dr. Patel but I decided not to go back to finish the treatment because it was incredibly painful and it was painful for days but I was not given anything for that or prepare to experience that. He hasgreat bedside but I didn't want to go through the procedure so I cancelled my remaining appointments

Had a little bit of difficulty finding the place (Google maps took me to the back of it somehow), but once I was there, EVERYONE was so nice! The facility is very clean, looks new or very well maintained, and thestaff was friendly and welcoming, while also maintaining a professional demeanor. The diagnostic testing (Xrays) done was completed much quicker than I expected (good thing, as I was there on my lunch break!). Dr. Patel offered me multiple options for treatments for my ankle pain, explained all of them clearly, and let me make the choice myself/didn't pressure me into any of the options. Overall, this was a great experience for a doctor's office of any kind.

Staff was great! Doctor able to diagnose pretty quick and explain in a way I could understand. I’ve had a lot of foot problems recently and they have been by far the best team on first impression.

I am disappointed with the level of attention and prescribed treatment plan Dr. Patel gave me for a foot fracture. It has taken nearly 8 months for me to walk normally and am still not at the point of doing anyimpact activities like running. It wasn't until I got a second opinion from another doctor that I felt I was making true progress towards recovery.

Dr. Patel very kind ( I say this because I had to get a cortisone shot and those are quite painful) It was the easiest one I ever had. He eased my mind and gave me several options for treatment. NewOffice, so no X-ray machine but he still explained clearly what was going on with a model foot. Office staff was kind and efficient. They were very flexible with making future appointments. Happy to recommend.

After a slew of doctors with terrible bedside manor/ people skills, one doctor couldn't even look me in the eyes when talking to me, Dr. Patel was very refreshing and professional. As someone in the customer service industry I can sayhe will be my doctor for any foot problems in the future! Thank you Doc!

I had to get a minor foot surgery and everything went very smoothly. Like any normal person, I was a littler nervous going into it. Dr. Patel explained the procedure thoroughly and constantly checked in to make sure I felt ok.I also had casting done for new custom soles. I'm looking forward to getting them in two weeks.
