I walked into the office and stood there awkwardly as the 5 employees behind the main desk continued to chat and not acknowledge me, which I found odd. After standing there for a bit, one of the employees nudged the otherto greet me. I had a 12:25 appointment and wasn’t taken back to an exam room until 12:55 which was frustrating since I scheduled this as a lunch appointment during the work week. I was finally seen by Dr. Patel at 1:05. On a much more positive note, Dr. Patel is very polite and made me feel comfortable. While the reason I came in for this particular visit was quite minuscule, I’d certainly consider coming back to Dr. Patel for some other ongoing issues I’ve had with my ear and nose.

Dr. Patel and his team were fantastic. They were professional, patient, communicative, and happy to provide all the information I needed regarding my treatment. I called a few hours after my appointment to give them more details about my symptoms,and the doctor quickly called back to discuss them with me and set me at ease. Every interaction I have had with his office including his receptionists, nurses, and other doctors has always been top notch with no complaints at all. I book all my doctor's appointments through ZocDoc and this is the only one I felt compelled to review. Highly recommended!

Great visit as usual. Dr. Patel is my favorite doctor I have ever been to. He is thorough and efficient in his work. He also actually listens to what I have to say rather than just jumping to conclusions and givingme a diagnosis. I've seen the same ENT for over 26 years in my hometown and after two visits to Dr. Patel I already prefer going to his office.
