Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Patel was friendly and knowledgeable
I was 20 min late and he still saw me. This dr is kind and very willing to listen and help with your pain/ symptoms. I highly recommend him.
He's a great doctor, someone who'll totally restore your trust in the health system. My wife and I both went to see him for the same problem - a blocked ear. He was able to identify and treat her on the spot and gave antibiotics for her infection.
Pros: very pleasant, exam and procedure seemed good. Cons: a little rushed, 30m wait, had to fill out forms even though I had zocdoc send them, couldn't tell me the exact price ahead of time despite the fact that I'll wind up paying a percentage of it.
Amazing he was so friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. I was surprised at how fast and efficient he was, while at the same time giving very thoughtful and detailed care. Would recommend him to anyone! Great first experience with an ENT
Excellent doctor. He listens thoroughly and gives very good feedback. I highly recommend Dr Patel.
Really great doctor. I felt super confident with his opinion and he was very thorough, making sure to answer all of my questions and concerns. His bedside manner was also warm and approachable. Will definitely be back if the need arises in the future!
Very professional, thoughtful, and friendly. A+
This guy is awesome, very friendly, very helpful. Almost no wait. Went in for an ear ache and some hearing issues and I felt very comfortable through the whole process.Would highly recommend!
Dr. Patel made me feel relaxed and confident in his care.
Dr. Patel was very efficient, which I appreciated.
I usually don't write these reviews, but I couldn't have asked for a better experience—wait time was reasonable, every single person I interacted with was incredibly professional and friendly, and Dr Patel was exceptionally friendly / easy to talk to and gave me a very honest opinion.
Great, very professional.
Quickest doctor visit ever! Dr. Patel seemed knowledgeable and genuinely cared about my issue. Waiting area is a little cramped, but that's just nitpicking because I spent about 60 seconds waiting. Overall a great experience!
Best ENT I've encountered in New York. I was skeptical at first because the office is very dingy and run-down, but I was happy as soon as Dr. Patel walked into the room. He was so pleasant, thorough, and patient. There was no rush, and when he asked "is there anything else you can think of that you'd like to talk to me about?" he wasn't in the process of walking out the door, like most doctors. He really took the time to talk and explain several possible treatment outcomes and next steps.
Dr. Patel was extremely knowledgeable His chair side manner was impeccable . I felt I received quality care and his staff was very professional as well. I would highly recommend him which I already did :). I will be back to see him in a year!
Polite, caring, staff was very friendly also
Great , and thank them all for the care and treatment I received,
Doctor did not discuss much of what he believe my issue was, prescribed me to go have a test in a different location where they did not availability for another 2 months. Called back and spoke to staff which with an attitude gave me a number for another doctor. The doctor is ok, but he needs to completely re-staff.
He was great. He took time to explain everything to me in great detail and went above and beyond during my appointment to make sure I received proper care.
Very professional,friendly and able.
Excellent bedside manner; takes his time to answer your questions and explain what he is doing and why; always feel confident after an appointment with Dr. Patel.
Good experience. was in and out in a very reasonable amount of time. Dr was thorough and explained everything.
Excellent doctor. Explained everything. Friendly and professional.
Very nice staff, clean office. Seemed like many people were waiting, but I was seen almost right away. Dr. Patel listened to me carefully and was sure to address any questions or concerns I had. Highly recommended!
Dr. Patel was straightforward and approachable. He quickly helped me with an ear problem that had been bothering me the entire week, and was informative and kind. Funny, too. A great ENT who I intend to go back to see.
Good communicator and knowledgeable
Amazing bedside manner -- he was extremely personable and explanatory. Highly recommend!
I have seen Dr. Patel for clogged ears and sinus infections and he always gets me fixed up and healthy again in no time. I truly enjoy our visits because I walk in knowing that I am going to leave the office with all the information (and medicine) I need to just feel better again. I recommend him to anyone looking for an ENT--he's absolutely the best.
Very nice doctor. Confident, good communicator. Very clear and reassuring. Highly recommended.
Confident, professional, and a clear and thorough communicator
Quick but still thorough. Was able to squeeze in early appointment before work.
Taking advantage of ZocDoc's pre-filled forms would be useful. Had to fill 4 pages of paperwork.
Excellent doctor. Really knows his stuff and has a great bedside manner. You can tell he really cares. Great staff too. Would highly recommend.
It was a very timely visit, Dr. Patel was very professional and made sure he answered all the questions/concerns I had.
Dr. Patel took the proper time to examine me, looked at my history and provide the best course of action. I will use this doctor in the future. Very clean office.
Dr. Patel is such a wonderful doctor, and truly addresses and discusses any issue you come in for. He had fixed me right up on multiple occasions varying from clogged ears to sinus infections. I would recommend him to absolute anyone looking for a good ENT.
Smart doctor, well informed and professional. Only issue I had was that I was charged a copay for a follow up consultation that required only a referral note. If you have a similar situation, just call the office and ask questions instead of wasting your time traveling.
Dr. Patel has the best bedside manner and is very thorough with his examination. I have been going to him for a long time and am thrilled he is on Zoc Doc now.
I came to Nilesh Patel after being by another ENT, Nilesh has checked me more thoroughly and explained things better, he also directed me on how to proceed to the next level if things don't get better. on this visits bases i recommend him.
Dr. Nilesh Patel is very friendly and waiting time is short which is really really good.
I had a great experience with him. He is very friendly, personable, explains what he's doing, and is thorough. Would recommend him to anyone.
Very knowledgeable and skilled. Excellent treatment. He also took time to listen. We'll worth the extra distance.
Dr. Patel is very approachable and thorough. He seems to care about his patients and enjoy his work. I felt like he took the time to hear my concerns, and I feel comfortable staying with him.
He pushed excessive tests and procedures that made a simple problem very expensive to diagnose and treat. Should have more respect for people's budgets.
He was thorough and made sure i knew my options and what he was doing. He and his team were polite and accommodating of my appointment being on my lunch hour.
Very concise and clear about the objectives and what we hoped to accomplish. Clear next steps in an effort to get the problem resolved.
Dr. Patel is extremely nice and gives great advice. I rarely had to wait more than 5 minutes to be seen, which is important in my line of work!
Efficient and fast Nice place Normal staff
Extremely happy and it's my first visit with the Doctor. Wants to work with me to get to the source of my problem not just mask it. Plus didn't mention surgery!! Will continue to come back to Dr Patel. His reception desk was also very nice and accommodating.
Dr. Patel was quick but he helped me get to the root of the problem. And he ensured that I was covered with my referrals and prescription. I liked him very much. He was also very kind and insightful.
Hard to say at this stage as there will be follow-ups but Dr Patel was very clear, gentle, attentive to my needs. Having moved from abroad recently I was irritated about the amount of paperwork to fill in. I seem to hear that ZocDoc would allow to do that in a more automated way so I do not have to do it for every new medical provider I visit?
Dr. Patel is an excellent doctor. He really put me at ease, listened to me and made it fairly pleasant. I have confidence that his treatment will heal my issue.
Dr. Patel is about as good as a doctor can get. He diagnoses fast and on the money. Really good bedside manner. You can tell he is really smart. His system is really technologically advanced too. There's always like an assistant recording something while he is working.
Very precise and friendly. Made me feel comfortable and gave helpful advice for the future.
I had a great experience! I showed up without a recommendation from my primary doctor (required by my insurance, but I was unaware I needed one), so I had to call my doctor....get a recommendation faxed over....took way longer than expected. By the time I got everything in order, I was 30 minutes past my appointment time and they still fit me in! Dr. Patel is very informative and so easy to talk to. You can tell he really cares about helping you! Definitely recommend!!
STAY AWAY!!! I came to Dr. Patel for a first time consultation and was told that he was "just going to look into my nose and throat" which he did with a microscope. I assumed this was a normal examination and not anything out of the ordinary. Two months later I got a bill from them stating I had "surgery" done. I called their billing department a few times and they would not do a thing. I have never had a doctor do any services to me that may not be covered by insurance without giving me the costs beforehand so it is absurd that this establishment is tricking clients this way and even more absurd that they do not take ownership of their mistakes. Aside from this I did not even get any answers from Dr. Patel and did not receive any follow up after I had reached out to him after my appointment.
Dr. Patel is probably my favorite doctor in the city. I like the early morning times, so I can go before work, and I am always seen right away. He's been extremely helpful.
This is my second time coming to Dr. Patel. Always a fast visit and very helpful! Great new office, never have to wait long. Highly recommended.
Very professional and detailed consultation. He did multiple checks. I still dont have a solution but I feel like he did everything possible.
He was very nice and very helpful. He gave me insight into some of my problems as to why I have trouble sleeping and also recommended me to a sleep center to further help me. He was extremely nice and is also very handsome.
I really liked Dr. Patel. Would definitely recommend him.
Dr. Patel was very informative and helped me with my issue quickly and easily on short notice before I left in a week long vacation. I highly recommend Dr. Patel.
This was my first time coming into the office and everyone was really nice. I just filled out some paperwork and got in immediately to see the doctor. They have a big staff and were very helpful and understanding. I feel so much better after coming here, and glad they found out what was wrong with my sinuses. I wish I came here sooner! Highly recommend Dr. Patel.
Dr. Patel was very informative and I left feeling satisfied.
Dr. Patel was really helpful and understanding, even for a routine task as ear cleaning (from swimming at the beach a few days prior). I also appreciated that he did things quickly and explained things in an easy-to-understand way.
Dr. Patel is super friendly and explains the diagnosis in clear layman's terms. Really, really great.
Just blindly finding Dr. Patel out of a list of ENTs, I was not expecting to be so blown away. He is compassionate, kind, and really spent effort talking and getting to know more about me. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an ENT. He also was extremely knowledgable and I felt completely confident in his diagnosis.
Dr. Patel is an excellent doctor. Professional, experienced and very attentive. He answered all my questions, but most important is that treatment that he prescribed was successful and I got rid of my sinus infection that I had for a few months.
My visit was a pleasant one. Dr. Patel was thorough and spoke calmly and carefully while he examined me. He ordered further tests which would help give him a better assessment of my condition and I will be returning to him after that.
Very friendly and easy to talk to.
He's great. Prompt, on-time and told me what was being prescribed for my sinus infection.
Dr. Patel is a professional, experienced and very nice doctor. He listens to all your concerns and answers all your questions.
Dr. Patel acted very professional, but the whole check was less than 5 min and when he left, so I have no chance to ask the questions I concerned about. His Chinese assistant is very rude and unprofessional. I asked her to measure my temperature bc I have infection in my glands and felt really bad, but she just said they are not providing this service (ear, nose and throat doctor!) and literally pushed me out of the doctors office.
Very short waiting time. Doctor was very nice. Professional approach.
Dr. Nilesh was very thoughtful and kind. His staff made me feel comfortable as soon as I walked it. His bedside manners were professssional and I walked out of his office feeling better and informed about my ear pain. Highly recommended !!
I have been a patient of Dr. Patel's since 2001. He diagnosed my tumor and I've been following up with him ever since. I highly recommend him.
He is very caring, explains everything and find the solution for the problem.
Everyone who worked in his office was courteous and professional. I thought my examination was thorough and I'm looking forward to my follow up visit.
Dr. Patel and his staff are welcoming and friendly and take the time to walk you through the steps they are taking and potential causes and solutions to your issue. In addition Dr. Patel was ready to acknowledge that right away he would be getting to the bottom of the situation and then also helping with my allergies after my main concern was dealt with. Wonderful practice.
The office was very nice and I didn't have to wait at all. The appointment was short without feeling like he was in a hurry. Very good visit.
Dr. Patel is really an amazing physician. He sees a problem, diagnosis it, and treats it. I am so glad I took my daughter to him. He is wonderful with kids and I highly recommend him! He is compassionate, kind, gentle, knowledgable, and takes his time to educate his patients.
Dr. Patel was knowledgable and extremely courteous. Easily one of the better doctor visits I've had in some time. Will be going back for any future ENT-related issues.
Dr Patel is a true professional. He actually treats the patient not just the problem. He even remembered some personal things I said in the last appointment. I am breathing a little better thanks to him and without surgery.
Dr. Patel was friendly and made me feel very comfortable. He quickly diagnosed the problem. I will return for further treatment as needed.
Great doctor! No pressure with followups and other procedures. Asks you to do your own research so that sense of comfort is there, usually doctors pressure you into procedures you are unaware of. Highly recommended.
The wait was negligible and the staff was courteous. Dr. Patel was very friendly,informative, and helpful.
He is pleasant and knew right away what the problem was. I was in and out in no time and did not have to go back.
Friendly, and very professional.
He is very pleasant and makes a rather unpleasant visit, tolerable. He knows what he is doing and I feel confident every time I go.
I was the first patient with a morning appointment, and though he arrived a few minutes late, I felt Dr Patel was professional. On the other hand, one of his nurses was hard to understand, and was rather impatient and rude in her attitude. Dr Patel himself was very kind. He made me feel comfortable, explained what he was doing, and stepped me through his diagnosis.
For some reason my medical info did not get transferred; Zocdoc is looking into it. I was seen on the prompt side, almost immediately after I entered the exam room. The staff quickly took the relevant medical details, and Dr. Patel was familiar with them when he came into the room in a few minutes. He quickly narrowed down the scope of the problem, and was skilled at performing the diagnostic procedures, keeping me informed about what was going on. When I shared some relevant parts of my experience, he incorporated that into his description to me. I felt very confident in his manner and diagnosis, and would highly recommend him.
I can't comment because I did not get to see the doctor. When I got there I was told he wasn't in. I should have been contacted but hadn't been. I hope this is not indicative. I am rescheduled.
He is professional, thorough, and nice.
I liked him but was irritated that my appointment started over 20 minutes late.
Very responsive and courteous
Will not go again
Very friendly, puts the patient at ease.
I didn't like how I filled out the check in forms but they still made me do the paperwork. Also Dr. patel was great, he fixed a problem I didn't even know I had!
Equipped and very knowledgeable
Very nice and comforting.
First I'll say they email you right after you book to have you log in to their system and fill out forms. If you're going to book an appointment here, book your husband (or whoever your subpatient is) separately. We got super confused with the account setup for their system and I think at the end of the day they entered is incorrectly. Just go to the office to fill out the forms and save yourself the effort. The office is beautiful. I'm having a lucky streak when it comes to these trendy hip New York offices. My time with the doctor was pretty short because I only came in to have my ears cleaned out. He asked me some standard questions about allergies and praised me for not using Q-tips. He can tell supposedly if you have used them. The actual procedure hurt a little because I hadn't had my ears cleaned out in a long time. I'm going back in 9 months for a follow up. I used to just have my ears rinsed out by my primary care doctor but treatment from a ENT feels smarter and safer. I'm definitely making Dr. Patel my ENT for the remainder of my time in New York City. And I definitely recommend you do the same.
Dr. Patel was very professional, courteous and informative. I am very pleased with my overall experience and would recommend him highly.
Extremely nice staff and the doctor was very attentive and friendly.
Careful. Professional. Competent. easily recommend
Dr. Patel is very professional. I am very happy with the quality of service I have received.
Doctor Patel is a very knowledgeable and experienced doctor. He is very nice and pleasant. He spends enough time with the patient and answers all questions. I definitely would recommend him to those who need to see otoralingology doctor!
He was great!
Went for a routine ear cleaning. The doctor felt a bit rushed, and tried to rope me in for a hearing test. But overall, a good experience.
The office staff was polite and efficient. Dr. Patel was very professional and made me feel comfortable and informed. I'll definitely return.
Dr. Patel saw me in a timely manner, and was warm and courteous while talking about the reason for my visit. He was efficient with the visit, yet at all times made sure that he was explaining what he was doing. He wrapped up the appointment well and scheduled a follow up as well. All in all, it was a fruitful and efficient visit.
I strongly recommend visiting this profession specialist He also has a very friendly team
this man was not only my doctor, but my surgeon for tongue cancer. an amazing surgeon! i lucked out by picking him. i highly recommend him!!!
Overall very good.
He explains everything in full detailed, also made suggestions. I would highly recommend him.
Dr. Patel is very personable, and extremely knowledgable on top of that. In a matter for 15 minutes he administered a full ENT exam and gave me a range of options going forward. I highly recommend!
Nice guy, very personable, gets right to the point too.
Dr. Patel and his staff were great. Professional, courteous, and very fast to diagnose my problem and suggest solutions.
Dr. Patel was terrific. He is candid, helpful, and open with his patients. Unlike many doctors, he acknowledges the range of possible causes of your symptoms and explains to you exactly why he made the specific recommendations he did. ENT symptoms can be unnerving, and I can't recommend Dr. Patel highly enough. I felt relieved within minutes of talking to him and will definitely be going back.
Very thorough explanation of my condition. He was also the first doctor to refer to medical diagrams that hang in his office. He even let me look through the endoscope camera during my exam!
He gave me excellent care and advice. He was conservative when it came to advising surgery whereas other doctors might have pushed surgery because it was in their financial interest to do so. Great physician.
I highly recommend Dr. Patel. He was very sympathetic, professional, and knowledgeable during my appointments. My healing process was quick and worry-free thanks to him. Thank you, Dr. Patel!
Always professional, always explains thoroughly
Dr. Patel was very thorough and clear on his exam and analysis. Felt very comfortable.
He was great! Very professional and thorough in his evaluation. I definitely recommend him.
A really great experience! He asked straight-forward questions, quickly got to the bottom of the problem, and suggested that I come back to make sure my antibiotics work correctly. :) Great guy!
He was very nice and listened to my concerns. However I think that he may be one to jump on doing a bunch of tests that may be unnecessary. I wish that he had spent more time with me and that he also addressed all the concerns I had - which weren't many - instead of just one of them...which in the end still hasn't been figured out. He was pleasant and so were his staff but I don't feel as though I left there feeling totally confident about my visit.
Dr. Patel was very friendly and kind throughout the entire visit. He fixed an ear issue I was having within just a few minutes.
My experience with Dr. Patel and his staff was awesome. The front desk staff was extremely nice. I was seen in less than 10 minutes after arriving, the doctor's assistant was very pleasant, and Dr. Patel was amazing. He took the time to explain everything! He listened intently to what I said and was very friendly. I can't remember the last time I was so satisfied with a doctor's visit, and Dr. Patel and his staff exceeded my expectations.
Dr. Patel is extremely delightful!
Very knowledgable, speaks on your level, & thorough.
The Doctor is a pro. Extremely nice, precise, fast and honest. Great experience.
Dr. Patel and his staff were great! I was seen promptly, Dr. Patel was very friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. High recommend!
Given the circumstance of my situation, he was as professional and patient to explain my diagnosis without rushing me off. Even though I had to be referred to another doctor, I would recommend him as an ENT specialist.
This was my first visit and I felt very welcomed by Dr. Nilesh Patel and his staff. Everything was quick and efficient, which was great during a work day. I would recommend him to any of my friends/colleagues.
Dr. Patel has taken good care of me for over a year now. He readily volunteers information about your condition and treatments and is open to discussion on various treatment options. He seems to put the patient's interests first, and does so with a level of enthusiasm about the subject matter which I find refreshing and reassuring--important qualities to look for in a doctor who may one day be performing surgery on your head!
Very efficient office. Practices evidence based medicine and good bedside manner. Defiantly recommend Dr Patal.
It was perfect. Very professional and provided detailed feedback.
I can breathe!!! I wish I hadn't hesitate on Dr. Patel's suggestion to getting my turbinate reduction. I could've been breathing much sooner! The staff is also kind and always willing to answer any questions.
Excellent bedside manner and attentive. Works and talks quickly but not rushed just efficient. I can see why some people found he rushed things. Explains your condition thoroughly, articulately, and speaks to you about long-term care as well.
Nice guy, knowledgeable, and friendly. Highly recommended.
He was very nice and efficient. Took the time to explain various things and helped me immediately. I would recommend using him if you are specifically looking for an Ears, Nose and Throat doctor.
Great doctor and a good guy.
Knowledgeable, patient, and helpful. Would recommend Dr. Patel to anyone in search of a good ENT doctor to help diagnose and understand your condition.
very good doc answer all my questions, and very polite and professional
He was very thorough, nice and took the time to really explain what was going on.
Dr. Patel was very knowledgeable, compassionate, and efficient. I highly recommend him.
This was my first visit with Dr. Patel and he was great. He was very thorough and easy to talk with. His diagnosis and treatment fixed the problem. The office staff was great too. I highly recommend him!
The doctor seemed very knowledgeable but his analysis was quick and somewhat rushed. I explained to him the entire background and he asked a question or two, and came to a conclusion before checking me.
No waiting, professional, knowledgable and trustworthy.
I made my appointment with Dr. Patel pretty last minute and they still saw me right on time, which was a big plus. Dr. Patel and staff were very friendly and had great bedside manner. I had a small hematoma in my ear (sports-related injury) and I suspected I might have to get stitches and a compress, but Dr. Patel gave me some options and it seemed like just draining it was the best way to go. It was nice that he discussed the different options with me rather than just doing a procedure that I might not have needed.
Dr.Patel is the real deal!
Great as usuall with Dr. Patel
The doctor was approachable and easy to talk with. He quickly diagnosed the problem, told me what procedure he had to perform, he did it and told me exactly what follow up care was needed.
Very nice, does his best to get to the core of your problem. Responsible. A bit quick -- but he definitely makes sure you're taken care of.
Very easy to get an appointment, very friendly, he saw me at the actual time of the appointment.
Good visit. A lot of patients, but time went fast.
The Dr. was very thorough in his diagnostic review of my condition. I would certainly continue to see this Dr. for ENT purposes again. Very pleasurable staff.
Quick, efficient and professional. Couldn't ask for more. I was in and out in about 25 minutes.
Really nice doctor!!
I loved my visit with Dr. Patel. He is very knowledgeable, friendly, and patient. Everyone else at the office is very nice as well which you dont see that often. Certainly will be my go to ENT doctor, and I highly recommend him.
I didn't have anything major--just some ear wax problems. Took care of it right away. He's very personable and explained everything clearly and any follow-up procedures. I would go back to him again. The office staff is also pleasant and the wait time was nominal--as soon as they finished my paperwork and payment.
Although I got there late due to the Columbus Day Parade road closures, Dr. Patel and his staff kindly took me in. The doctor was very courteous, knowledgeable and patient. He conducted a thorough examination of my ear problem and effectively advised me how to cure it. Highly recommended.
Dr. Patel was very Professional and has patience. Answered all my questions. Office staff was pleasant as well.
Dr nilesh Patel was nice and good for patience .
Dr. Nilesh Patel was very Professional and explained my symptoms in detail. I also felt comfortable asking questions regarding my symptoms. I would definitely recommend him to other patients.
I was treated well.
I was extremely pleased with my appointment and outcome as a new patient and will definitely recommend Dr. Patel to friends and family!
Great doctor, listened well and was genuinely interested in helping me. Was very professional. Also loved that they took care of sending out my prescription out and setting up a customized way of communication.
Professional Listened to my concerns
He was very helpful with my ear condition. Feeling better and will follow up on two weeks. A pleasant experience
Execellent bedside manner and very thorough
The service was quick and easy. He was gentle, experienced and understanding. I would recommend to anyone I know.
Nice, efficient, thorough, knowledgable. Highly recommend.
He was absolutely great. The wait time was a bit longer than I would have wanted but I was in and out of there as soon as he saw me quickly and all fixed!
Very knowledgeable and kind, understanding about all of my symptoms and concerns. Thorough, sent for more testing.
I hardly ever leave feedbacks, but this time I can't help myself ;) Dr. Patel was absolutely great. He was polite, very attentive and caring. He listen to my complaints and answered my questions patiently and thoroughly. I wish all doctors were like him.
Dr. Patel is very professional and personable. He was able to quickly diagnose my problem and gave me a sense of confidence that we were on the right path. The day I was there, a computer problem had slowed things up considerably, but the staff soldiered on. The building where his office is located is not the nicest one I have ever been in, but it serves the purpose.
Very friendly, quick, to the point and not trying to upsell anything. Would go again!
Great - very helpful and explained everything clearly.
Doctor didn't have any idea what was wrong, sent me out for tests, and didn't follow up with me until I called a few times . When we finally did speak 4 weeks later, he tried to make my problem and questions seem like no big deal...telling me he didn't have my file with me and that he was with another patient. Still didn't know after sending me out for tests. He gave me a referral to a different ENT!
Very clear and attentive, listened well, established expectations, and set out a plan for clearing up my issue, starting with the most basic tests.
Dr. Patel was hands down the best doctor I have ever been to for anything. He took the time to actually ask specific questions about my problem, as well as let me explain my problem as long as I needed to take to explain it. I was not rushed, and he is helping me with a long term solution, and not just a band-aid fix that I usually get elsewhere. I would highly recommend, and I will be going back if I ever have issues again!
Excellent bedside manner
Great...remembered me from last year, and answered all of my questions professionally and with a personable manner. Would recommend.
Dr. Patel was very intelligent, had great bedside manner, and gave me referrals that I needed. Would highly recommend him for anyone who is in need of a smart ENT Doctor.
Fast, efficient, very pleasant.
Dr. Patel and I go way back to 2002. He is very professional and thorough in his appointments. I highly recommend him.
My appointment with Nilesh Patel MD was extremely helpful and he was very friendly and explained everything in way that was easy to understand. I came in mainly for one issue with my vocal cords, but he also helped with a previous ailment I'd been dealing with in my right ear, and I have a scheduled follow-up to check in on the vocal cord issue again after following his treatment plan.
Dr. Patel was very knowledgeable and tried to prescribe the treatment that I was most comfortable with. I took his recommendations and felt great afterwards. I would definitely recommend Dr. Patel in the future.
Dr. Patel is a great ENT doctor. I made a 2pm appt. on ZocDoc but then I called the office at 10am because I could not here from my right ear and I was uncomfortable at work, they immediately told me to come in. I went in with an ear ache and Dr. Patel immediatley helped me. I love that he has early appt. hours 7:30am. I am able to see him before I go to work. His office is very clean and his staff are all wonderful, helpful people.
I was quite happy with the whole process! Will go again.
Always profressional, to the point and helpful
Excellent. Thorough, personable, balanced.
Dr Patel was very thorough and sympathetic to my condition and took very good care of me.
Very nice man, good professional.
I have been plagued with sinus issues since I was a child, as I've grown up it consistently got worse. I finally decided to go back to an ENT & Dr. Patel was amazing! Him and his assistant quickly took my history and began the dreaded sinus examination. He was gentle, kind, and precise. We came up with a plan of action immediately (allergy testing & a CT scan which his assistant helped me with) and I was on my way. I had my follow up with him today & I really appreciated how he suggested to exhaust all other options before having surgery (which most doctors I've been to always push). He is an amazing ENT who made sure I understood all the results and options moving forward. His staff is pleasant and efficient as well. Plus the office is beautiful! I will absolutely recommend him to anyone with sinus / ear nose & throat issues.
Dr. Patel is extremely thorough and really takes his time to explain everything. A fantastic doctor!
Thanks for Zocdoc I found Dr Patel. He did my children's surgeries when they were in grade school. When he started his new practice we have no idea where to find him until I saw his picture in Zocdoc (rated 5 stars... I'm not surprise). They always say, you can't please everybody. . Well, my whole family are very satisfied on how he takes care of us. He explains everything before any procedures are done and when YOU ask a question. He will answer that question in a way that you understand.I never felt being rushed out by him nor his staff. You should see his new office..it's clean and beautiful.
The doctor was very helpful, the staff was nice and the office looks kind of fancy. Highly recommend!
Excellent as always. If you need an ENT or ear doctor this is the place to go. Office is extremely well run.
This was a follow-up visit after my initial diagnosis - unfortunately a deviated septum - and Dr. Patel fully explained the next steps and options (live with it or have surgery). While not what I wanted to hear, it was definitely what I needed to hear. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and does all the work dealing with my insurance answering my billing questions. The only downside is the 40th St. location is really old and run down. Even the doctor recommended I go to the new office on 46th St instead.
Highly recommend Dr. Patel. He is very professional with a good bedside personality.
He was fantastic. Thorough, personable, knowledgeable. I will definitely go back.
Exceptionally thorough. I left with a clear understanding of the course of treatment, plus short- and long-term strategies for dealing with a lingering cold. Highly recommended, and great office staff.
professional and knowledgeable.leaves nothing to chance making sure all possible causes are looked into.
He's super cool. I'd definitely recommend him to others.
Very nice, attentive doctor. Very helpful.
Dr. Patel was very knowledgeable and proposed appropriate follow up procedures.
Today was my 3rd visit and nothing has changed. Dr Patel is amazing on how he handles my concerns. All of my questions were answered and he gave me suggestions too (nasal congestion). I don't see myself visiting another Ear nose and throat doctor.
Great doctor and staff. Will see again if issues persist
I can't recommend Dr. Patel highly enough. He's always on time, his office is clean, and he's personable and seems extremely knowledgeable.
Absolutely fantastic, very quick, very helpful. No BS. Would highly recommend.
the meeting with the doctor was very short - he seemed busy. He gave me good antibiiotics as I've been told by others, but my problem also was that I had a pain in a ear at that moment - they have let me go without giving me any pain relieving meds, so I was really suffering until I got the presubscribed pain-reliever an hour later. They knew that I was in pain and gave me nothing at their office.
doctors usually make me nervous but I felt really calm with him and he was very detailed as to what the plan of action would be going forward.
Very knowledgeable provider, great bedside manners with a wonderful staff. Would highly recommend.
Very quick and thorough. Doctor Patel made you feel very comfortable and was very knowledgeable. He also is very good at documenting everything that you say... I have gone to doctors where they do not take a single note and don't touch on your issues, but Dr. Patel made sure he touched upon everything that was bothering me, making me feel very relieved when I left.
The wait to see Dr. Patel was less than 15 minutes; he spoke with me, not at me; he looked at me when he asked me questions, answered my questions or shared information with me. He courteously addressed my concerns. He was professional, knowledgeable. Overall, I left the office with a favorable impression.
I have never been to an ENT and highly recommend Dr. Patel. his bedside was excellent, not pushy, and took a genuine interest in what is going on with me. I have a sinus infection and have suffered for years with them off and on and am excited to continue with looking more and more at the root of them with Dr. Patel.
I have seen Dr. Patel a few times over the years due to my allergy problems and chronic sinusitis and have always been very pleased. He has recently opened a new office on 46th which is by far one of the warmest and comfortable doctor offices I have been in NYC. As I previously mentioned I have had long standing issues with allergies/ chronic sinusitis and have put off having surgery due to my slightly irrational fear of surgery but after discussing options with Dr. Patel I finally felt comfortable and opted for a procedure that is done right in his office with a local anesthetic. It didn't seem as abrasive as having surgery and it was obviously convenient for me without having to travel to a hospital and deal with all of the anxiety that comes with it. I put all of my faith in Dr. Patel's ability and expertise and I am ecstatic to report that I am 100% satisfied and extremely grateful to this doctor. He tra nsformed my quality of life and he gave me the opportunity to enjoy it. I cannot recommend this doctor highly enough. Forever Grateful
Dr Patel has always been fantastic. Once again, he took care of my health issues... nasal congestion and throat pain. I will definitely stay as his patient . It's nice to visit a doctor's office when you are greeted by a smiling staff..... thank you!
Dr. Patel is very friendly and takes the time to explain what is going on. The wait time is typically very short, and the office staff is incredibly friendly. Book the 46th Street location if you can. It's much more modern than the 40th Street location!
The office was dirty at best and very cramped. The doctor was very quick and disorganized. The front desk staff was at least nice....
Very Good - excellent mannerism. A little painful when he extracted the built up wax from the left ear. Right ear no problem in removing that wax.
He was incredibly helpful, polite and smart. I just needed to get my ears cleaned out (and had never had it done before, so I was a bit of a baby about it) and he did everything to make sure I was calm and relaxed. Plus, he cleaned out my ears so well in just a couple of minutes! It was a pleasure, and I recommend him to anyone who needs to see an ENT.
Dr. Patel was friendly, professional and very knowledgeable in his field of medicine. He was able to diagnose my problem effectively before even thoroughly examining me. I left his office with a better outlook on my problem.
It was good
Friendly office, great clear doctor
Very courteous, not pushy about an elective procedure I have chosen to put off, explained all issues clearly and had me on my way in a timely fashion
DR. Patel was extremely friendly. I would recommend him to family and friends
Great doctor. Addressed all my concerns properly. Highly recommend!
Took time to answer my questions and make everything clear to me
He was straight forward and to the point, didn't waste any time and was funny and very nice. He immediately knew what was wrong after poking around a bit.
Highly informative, friendly, seemed genuinely concerned - overall great!
Very good, prompt, nice, engaging and helpful.
Dr. Patel was very professional, methodical and friendly during my exam. I would definitely return in the future.
Very nice doctor!! Very helpful and approachable. Very knowledgeable about ENS.
Very attentive and professional. Took the
Dr. Patel is as friendly as he is knowledgeable. He does everything he can to assure your comfort. He was also quick to explain things I can do to avoid running into ear issues again. I highly recommend him. His new office space was beautiful as well.
Professional, knowledgeable, and friendly.
Dr. Patel was great. Didn't have to wait too long and he was very professional and personable.
Efficient, friendly, informative. All the things you want from a doctor visit.
Dr. Patel was wonderful! He has a great personality and is highly knowledgeable. I highly recommend him!
Efficient, answered my questions, presented pros & cons of treatment options without trying to pressure me to make a decision.
He was a charming doctor and his bedside manner was excellent. Nice staff also. Wes
Listens to all your concerns and answers all your questions in good detail. Caring.
Top notch practioner.
The receptionists were loudly crunching on food and there was a long wait, but the doctor was nice and somewhat informative.
Very professional doctor, got straight to the point and was clear and concise with feedback. Would recommend!
Friendly and professional. Put my mind at ease.
Very friendly and knowledgable doctor.
Friendly, pragmatic, efficient. Remembered me from 2 years ago.
Dr Patel is extremely knowledgable and personable. His office is opened early and the staff is extremely helpful. He is one of the best Dr.'s in NYC.
Very pleased with my visit.
Very nice doctor. Listens to you.
Friendly doctor. Very patient and helpful in answering any questions I had. Would recommend.
A true professional with great bedside manner.
Fantastic bedside manner, and fixed my ears in less than ten minutes. Highly recommend.
Dr. Patel was great and patient to walk me through things and wanted to be sure I understood next steps.
As a first time patient, I found Dr. Patel to explain everything well and did not seem rushed, despite clearly having many appointments. He seemed easy to talk to and knowledgeable.
Dr. Patel was great. He takes time to explain things in detail, answers any and all questions, and he speaks to you like a peer in his discussion with you. I felt very comfortable with his treatment proposal, because his evaluation was thorough, and he discussed options and the upsides and downsides of each option and why he thought it made sense to do what he ultimately prescribed. Understanding the potential issues and options out there makes feeling comfortable with the one ultimately chosen so much easier. I will definitely return to Dr. Patel.
Excellent. Smart and current.
Dr. Patel takes the time to listen to your concerns. Very good bedside manner.
Great doctor. Takes the time to listen to you and examines you thoroughly. You can tell he likes taking the time to spend with his patients.
He is great, spends time with you and wait time is very short. Highly recommend!
I had the first appointment of the day and was seen right away. Dr. Patel was attentive yet efficient. He answered all my questions, and, most importantly, solved my issue quickly. I liked that he didn't push medication when it wasn't actually necessary. He clearly knows what he's doing, and I will definitely recommend him to my friends and colleagues -- in fact, I already have.
extremely satisfied with my visit. Dr. Patel cares about his patients and takes the time to hear you out. I don't feel rushed when i meet him. He is knowledgeable and skilled. I will def. go back to him for all ENT related problems.
He is awesome.
Very friendly and informative physician. Wait time was less than ideal but the front desk was friendly.
He seemed nice enough, was personable and professional. My visit lasted about 5 minutes total because I need to go in for further testing, but he seems like a nice doctor. I definitely felt comfortable there and the desk staff were friendly and inviting.
he is very rude and impatient. he spent less only 5 mins with me and he sent me a huge bill. i dont feel it's worthy for the money you paid and you got bad service.
Fantastic. Dramatic difference in just one visit. Sociable and relatable.
As always Dr. Patel was both warm and professional. Additionally, the wait time was very quick.
Dr. Patel was very kind, knowledgeable and helpful. I'm very happy I found him online as the doctor to visit near my work location. My symptoms were alleviated almost immediately. I highly recommend Dr. Patel.
Dr. Patel and his staff are extremely friendly and efficient. I really felt like I was being listened. I have so many bad experiences with doctors forgetting that they are dealing with humans. So i really appreciate the service in general at his office. I really recommend him.
Very nice, knowledgeable, was able to explain things in clear and understandable ways. Quick but I didn't feel rushed.
Very professional and clear visit. Just perfect.
I would recommend this ENT Doc. Doctor Nilesh Patel, has the right tools in the office.
Dr. Patel was very professional and affable and so are his staff. The waiting room and consultation rooms are immaculate. Overall one of the best experiences I have had with a physician while living in New York for the past ten years.
I was late for my appointment but still Dr. Patel was nice enough to agree to see me today. The front desk staff is very nice as well.
Dr. Patel was very professional and smart and listened to everything I had to say. He is very easy to talk to, and very quick but thorough.
Helpful and time efficient experience.
Dr. Patel is good and professional. I recommend him.
My procedure wasn't complicated - but I appreciated the overall approach. I got a clear explanation of what the issue was and what were going to be the next steps. The medical team was professional. Overall great experience.
It was great. He was very pleasant.
Very professional and excellent service. Highly recommended !
He was very good in explaining everything and prescribed me with the appropriate medication to get rid of my sickness.
Terrific- he's articulate, nice, and a professor of ear nose and throat issues at the local hospital. Great staff, very friendly.
Highly recommended. Dr Patel is really great. My first time using ZocDoc and I'm quite pleased with the whole experience.
I usually don't write reviews but I thought my experience with Dr. Patel would be of great value to others with nasal congestion and sinus infections. I have had years of allergy and sinus problems and was tired of taking medications that werent helping me. Dr. Patel took the time to completely examin me with a camera that went into my nose and then sent me for a catscan of my sinuses. Based upon my ct results he discussed my options, which were traditional surgery or a procedure callled balloon sinuplasty. I chose the balloon procedure which was amazing. I was in his office for an hour and was able to return to work the very next day. As opposed to the traditional surgery which is done in a hospital and takes an entire day with general anesthesia with 2 day recuperation time. The balloon sinuplasty is done with a topical anesthetic I'm 100% happy with my decision and have not had any sinus related issues since. The entire experience was a positive one. If you are searching for an ENT, I highly recommend this doctor
Very quick, excellent bedside manner, straight and to the point. Would recommend him to everyone.
I am so happy I found Dr. Patel! I've had a long history of ear problems and Dr. Patel was incredibly knowledgeable. He answered all of my questions in an efficient and courteous manner. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is having ear, nose, or throat problems. In fact, I've already recommended him to two coworkers in the 3 hours that it's been since my appointment.
The visit went well, but he treats his personal stuff very poorly. He has a computer system that he cares to fill in all the things more than how the patient feels. I had a really bad cough and a serious problem that he wasn't able to find. When I called him to let him know that I wasn't feeling well, he never called me back.
I appreciated Dr. Patel's opinion on my issue but suggesting a surgery and procedure that won't resolve my issue in the long run seems kind of a big deal to me.
Awesome experience. I fractured my nose a week ago and Dr. Patel fixed it flawlessly with minimal pain or discomfort. The staff was courteous and the faculty was pleasant. I don't plan on breaking my nose again but if so I will definitely go back to Dr. Patel.
Explains everything to you and is really nice?
Very professional and thorough
Dr. Patel was very friendly and conversational, with an attentive office staff. The office itself seemed clean and orderly. I would go back.
Great! It was worth visiting. Otherwise I would not have found out my ailment and its cure.
Quick, pleasant, professional.
I highly recommend him. He's a really nice guy who seems to know his stuff. He found a problem that I didn't know I had and dealt with it efficiently.
Very professional and nice
Excellent professional. Will continue to see him.
The doctor was professional and courteous but I felt a little rushed during the visit.
Great doctor, very professional and attentive.
It was absolutely great experience! The doctor found the problem right away and fixed it immediately. And... it didn't even hurt! I will definitely visit this doctor again.
Dr. Patel was approachable, and knowledgable. He completed his examination and made appropriate next set recommendations. Would recommend.
I was very happy with my visit with Dr. Patel. He is friendly, professional, courteous and knowledgeable. Did a good job at helping me with my issue. Unlike other doctors he did not recommend a bunch of tests right away. Was positive and honest in his opinions. I am very satisfied with my visit with Dr. Patel. Recommend him highly.
Found him very professional and helpful
He was pleasant and knowledgable
I'm thrilled when I have I find a good doctor. I did get there around 40 minutes early. I had a previous appointment which ended quickly, so I ended up arriving very early for my appointment with Dr. Patel. It was an early appointment.
He was very pleasant and easy to talk to. No fluff, told me what was wrong and that was that. The wait time was a little much, I was seen around forty five minutes after my set appointment. However, the doctor makes up for it in bedside manner.
Dr. Patel is a great ENT who cares about the patient's well-being and the best course of action for the patient.
Great, informative and highly recommended!
I had an appointment early in the morning and their was no wait. Dr. Patel thoroughly explained everything he was doing and helped me with my hearing issue.
very knowledgeable on the patient's concern.
Dr. Patel was very pleasant and thorough during our exam. He did not rush me. I came with an ear problem but he examined my nose and throat as well and noticed I was congested. He applied a de-congestant that brought instant relief and addressed it in addition to my ear problem. I would definitely recommend him. The wait unfortunately was about 45 minutes so I made my next appointment to be first thing in the morning (with the hope that it wont take as long).
He's great. I was seen fairly quickly, staff is nice, Dr is thorough and friendly. Explained everything to me well.
very organized and professional
Dr. Patel and his staff were great. I was able to book an appointment quickly and I got seen right away. I came because of an earache and I was very pleased with the way Dr. Patel's conducted the examination. He expalined everything as he went along. It was a quick visit, which was great, and I will see him for a follow up. I would definitively recommend Dr. Patel
Great doctor, took the time to explain things to me and answer my questions and concerns.
Great Doctor, I was very comfortable and he is an excellent doctor.
The doctor was nice, but too crowded.
He was pleasant, informative and covered all the bases for all my questions and issues. Would recommend him, definitely!
Staff was organized and helpful. Dr. Patel was direct and answered all questions. Referred my to specialist for future consultations.
Dr. Patel is friendly and professional every time I have visited him. He's very patient. His office staff is great too. Highly recommended.
Dr. Patel is very friendly and personable. I like that he took a very conservative approach to my treatment and was very good about answering all my questions.
Great Visit. Brand new clean office with kind staff. Quickly filled out paper work and saw me within 10 minutes of getting to the office even tho my appointment was not for another 45 minutes. Was very tentative and went through my history with me. Did not rush me and explained to me everything I had a concern about. Highly recommended.
Good reputation. Nice office (new!). Kind manners with patients and staff.
Dr. Patel was wonderful! He made me feel at ease right away and explained everything he was going to do before he did it. Great bedside manner.
Doctor was very knowledgable in his field of profession, took necessary steps to further evaluate the issue I am having and started treatment for my condition.
Dr. Patel was amazing. He was very patient and knowledgeable. He was very gentile and reassured me when i was anxious. He also took the time to answer all my questions and give advice about a future course of action. I will definitely be going back to him for all my ear, nose, and throat problems
Dr. Patel is a highly skilled and caring physician who takes the time to explain what he is doing and answer any questions one might have. I have great confidence in Dr. Patel and always know that I am in the best of hands while being treated by him. I feel very fortunate to have him as my doctor.
very good "bedside manners"
Excelente atencion empesando por los recordatorio de la cita la secretaria muy amable y profecional y el doctor extremadamente cortes repectuoso y excelente profesional en su trabajo sabes lo que hace con seguridad bendiciones amen
Was seen immediately and treated well by the staff (Stephanie is great). Dr. Patel has a GREAT bedside manner. Seriously, this guy is the Michael Raffinan of ENT! Explained not only my issues but the diagnosis, and likely resolutions calmly and carefully. Was willing to answer any questions I had and gave thoughtful and sensitive responses. He even threw in some light comedy to lighten the mood! He also gave me some options on how to proceed in a way that minimized the amount of co-pays I would have to do, too, which was cool.
He was very professional and made sure that the diagnosis was understood by me. Went the extra mile in terms of suggesting alternative treatments and then finally surgery. Definitely will continue seeing him for my ENT needs.
I found Dr. Patel while searching for an ENT on ZocDoc. The high ratings he has received here on the site were certainly backed up by his professionalism and expertise during my visit. Highly recommended.
Professional, knowledgeable, and really takes the time to understand the reasons why you came in as well as detailed explanations for treatment. I left feeling very much reassured, and will definitely be a long time patient.
Second time I've seen Dr. Patel. I'm very happy, he was fast so I was in and out but I also felt he was thorough, he listened to what I was saying, explained everything as he went along and he didn't leave the room until he was sure all my questions were answered.
My first visit with him was great. Before I even expressed concern about something, he explained he was using a different method, which put me immediately at ease. He listened well and answered all my concerns.
Very knowledgeable doctor and the secretary is very helpful. Fast service.
Dr. Patel helped me get rid of a persistent strep throat.
I really like Dr Patel. His office is one of the best run doctor's offices I have ever been to. He always sees me right away and his staff are professionals who are on top of their game!
Most personable doctor I've had in recent memory, perhaps ever.
He's absolutely my favorite doctor in the city.
Very professional service.
It was great, quick, and full of information. Great personality and nurse
Dr. Patel is one of the best doctors I have ever seen. He was attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. I feel much better about my condition after seeing him.
Knowledgeable and gave recommendations to help me understand what could be effecting me.
Excellent, professional and child friendly.
This Dr. was wonderful. I went to him for a second opinion with respect to my thyroid cancer diagnosis. He carefully reviewed all the paper work I brought to him and also administered his own examination to be completely thorough. He has a wonderful bedside manner making you feel important and answer any questions you have. I highly recommend this Dr. to anyone.
Very nice very thorough, listened carefully to everything I had to say. Great doc!
Dr. Patel and his assistant were very nice. His bedside manner was excellent and the consultation was fast but thorough. I am very satisfied with Dr. Patel and look forward to my next visit.
Dr. Patel was poised, extremely knowledgeable and gentle-handed, all the features you want in a ENT doctor. He and his staff made me feel comfortable even when the procedure was painful and that alone made it an invaluable experience. I can also hear again! What more could I say or want?
Very professional and skilled with a great bedside manner.
Very impressed with his expertise and treatment of hispatients.
Very informative and friendly, didn't rush.
Even with a full waiting room I was seen right away. His staff runs the office very well- this was my second or third time there. This doctor is one of the best and the entire experience was better than most of my doctor visits- and I've been to a lot!
Dr. Patel was friendly, professional, and informative. You can tell he knows what he's doing. I would recommend him to anyone.
He gave really good care and knew exactly what the problem was.
The staff could act and dress a whole lot more professionally, but Dr. Patel himself was great. I felt comfortable knowing he was always thorough, avoided unnecessary procedures, and took a cautious approach. I saw him maybe three times, and had a similar impression each time. Again though, his staff wasn't very diligent, especially over the phone, and it was a bit of a turn off that a couple of times they were dressed like they were stumbling home from a club.
Very intelligent. He answered all questions I had for him. Very helpful. I would recommend to everyone.
I lucked out by finding Dr. Patel via ZocDoc! Friendly, very knowledgeable doctor who made me feel comfortable right away. Easily the best experience I have ever had with an NYC doctor.
I had an appointment and was 10 min late filled out my forms and got to go in RIGHT AWAY! He was nice and really attentive and answered all my questions and concerns!!
The entire experience was professional, and direct. Dr. Patel listened, and responded in an intelligible, and caring manner.
It's always a pleasure to see doctor Patel. Very throughout exam. Excellet bedside manner.
Wonderful doctor...highly recommended
a very good doctor,very helpful and i recommed him for evryone. thank you do Patel
Great experience. Heard me out and was very productive in helping.
Good bedside manor, and very attentive and professional. I would recommend Dr Patel
Dr Nilesh is a great doctor.i highly recommend him.
The man really knows what he's doing and a nice fellow on top of it.
Fast and efficient, kind and very professional staff
Dr. Patel is very knowledgeable and takes the time to explain your situation. He is also very patient when it comes to answering your questions and I would highly recommend that you see him!
I loved it!!!!!
Staff are kind and efficient and I didn't have to wait too long for them to take me in. Great service.
I've had very good impression& feelings about Dr.Patel's professionalism, attitude as He was still patient enough to listen to me, taking care of my issue& giving good medical advices. I was late & supposed to be the last patient this day, but they still welcomed me, even his stuff, and this was my first time ever there. I highly recommend Him as your best ENT Ph.
He is very knowledgeable and patiently answered all my questions.
He was very nice and professional.
Dr. Nilesh Patel was excellent. He makes you feel comfortable and he is quite funny which helps make you feel at ease. His staff is nice and the location is convenient as well. I would recommend him to EVERYONE!
felt very homely
He was very polite, professional & funny I'd reccomend him to everyone
Very knowledgeable physician. Answered all my questions and addressed my concerns. Very friendly and efficient staff. No complaints at all. Will highly recommend to anyone.
Dr. Patel has an excellent professionalism and vast knowledge of his field. I would recommend anyone that is having issues in the ENT area to see Dr. Patel.
He actually took the time to ensure that all my questions were answered. I really appreciated that.
I thought the doctor was fine. But his staff is rather unfriendly and unwelcoming. His nurse assistant Alba didn't even look at me. The front office clerk said two words to me the minute I walked in..."ID and Insurance". Other than that, she didn't really have anything to say.
Great experience. Very nice staff, office and doctor
excellent except too long waiting time
Very nice doc. A bit of a wait in the office and not enough space it seemed for everyone. The receptionists were friendly and spunky (haha).
very informative and gave good advice.
Dr Patel is patient doesn't rush and very pleasant. His staff is professional and courteous. Highly recommend.
Friendly and informative
Dr. Patel was very informative and answers all of my questions.
Very professional. Questions, within his area of expertise, were answered and a plan of action was mapped out. I have a second visit set up to see how following the Dr.s recommendations will improve my condition
The office was a bit chaotic, but I was seen in a timely manner, and the doctor was kind, informative, and caring.
Dr. Patel is an excellent physician. He listens to his patients and is very thorough with his assessment. I could not see myself seeing any other doctor.
A very kind doctor who takes the time to explain things in a straightforward way. I don't particularly relish doctors visits because too many of them, in my experience, lack the bedside manner Dr.Patel possesses.
As always, a professional, personable doctor. My favorite ENT.
I thought he was extremely professional, patient, and knowledgable. He was the 3rd doctor I had seen in regards to my sinus problems and the first to suggest seeing an allergist before rushing into surgery, he said he would rather have all of the info first which oddly enough no one else had taken the time to say! Very exited to be working with Dr Patel and would highly recommend.
Great doctor. Very easy to talk to and helps the patient understand. I was in and out within 30 minutes too.
Great doctor -- extremely pleasant, thorough, competent, all you could wish for. I 200% recommend Dr Patel!
He and his staff are awesome!
Made my appointment online with no hassle before noon today and was in an out with filling out paperwork in about 30 minutes. Have a follow-up appointment. Nice office, nice staff and good DR.
Dr. Nilesh Patel is great. He gave me clear explanations of my symptoms & instructions.
Very professional and friendly. Showed genuine interest and spent time ensuring I understood what was going on and answering my questions Visit was educational as well!
I felt very rushed with this doctor and he overlooked some issues. I don't like feeling like my doctor is just fitting me into his schedule!
Thorough, efficient and took the time to explain everything.
Dr. Patel is very professional and approached my illness in a very pragmatic manner. Office assistants were nice and I was seen right on time. Hopefully my strep goes away soon!
Dr. Patel is lovely and very thorough. I recommended him to my colleagues as a wonderful resource for client referral in the midtown area
Professional all the way!
I came in to have my sinuses & ears checked out. Doctor proved himself to be very professional, friendly, and put a smile on my face. I can certainly see why Dr. Patel is rated as one of the top specialists in his field by the New York magazine.
Dr. Patel was very professional, kind and informative. The office itself looks unimpressive, but do not let looks deceive you. The care and treatment supersedes the decor :)
Dr. Patel was very pleasant. The ladies at the front desk were very helpful.
Dr Patel was great! His waiting room and office were a bit dingy, crowded and outdated.
I felt very comfortable during my visit. The doctor was very patient and approachable.
Dr. Patel is a very knowledgable and inspiring MD he gave me a second oppinion thats giving me hope that my health will get beter he knew right away what my diagnosis was and he seems very persistant in keeping his paients first
It was a very pleasant visit for unpleasant reason (ear infection plus wax removal).
Engaged and efficient. He treated me like a person instead of a number in his waiting room. Will go back.
he is such a nice doctor.
He took good care of me.
Despite being disappointed bec the staff claimed I didn't show for this appoint. I wd still recommend this doctor.
Everything was great. I really felt comfortable with him and he seemed to know what he was doing. Only problem was I specified I was only available one specific day for surgery, but he kept brushing it off, saying that I needed to get a bunch of pre-operation blood tests done first, and then we could talk about scheduling the surgery. It turned out, he wasn't able to do the surgery on the one day I was available all year, and I had to rush to find another doctor to do it before my blood work expired. I was really disappointed because I liked Dr. Patel so much and had made it clear I could only have the surgery in a small window of time. I had to get my septoplasty elsewhere.
Very nice, was seen as soon as I finished my paperwork.
Dr. Patel is really friendly, and explained exactly what was going on.
This is my second visit this year. Dr. Patel is awesome, will highly recommend him.
Dr Nilesh is a good doctor. He took care of the problem very nicely and explained the do's and dont's to avoid the problem in future.
Kind and careful doctor who explained everything well. Staff typical New York.
excellent care and terrific bedside manner
Dr. Patel is very nice and thorough and his staff are polite and helpful. Barely waited at all.
Friendly, kind, and reassuring. I'm a bit of a worrier, but he was not dismissive, which can't be said of many doctors.
They do their best to see you at the appointed time. Hes very considerate and seems to actually care. I appreciate their concern for my health.
He was very pleasant to my daughter and myself. The wait wasnt long. Very helpful with what I should do with my issue. And look forward to my next visit. My daughter was very comfortable and that's what I appreciated the most.
Both the staff and Dr. Patel were personable. Overall it was a good experience.
Dr.Patel was able to help make everything all better.
Great Doctor. Very personable and caring.
I highly recommend Dr. Patel he was very informative had a future recommendation for my for my complain. I left his office very satisfied. Miriam
It was a pleasure to be with him. His staff was equally as pleasant.
Personally the kindest and professionally the best in his field.
Very friendly staff. Treated me like a real person, instead of just a patient. Dr. Patel was very nice, seemed to truly listen to my concerns. Highly recommended.
Dr. Patel was very personable and helpful.
Doc was good. I did not care for the front desk attendant (the Pinoy one).
Highly recommended. A true professional.
Great doc and the office was even better. My appointment was at 2:00. He was on time and helpful. I was out the door in 20 with a smile.
My first visit to Dr. Patel's office was on June 2. I did not have to wait more than ten minutes. The office staff appeared very busy, but they were courteous and professional. Dr. Patel himself was very friendly, professional, and warm. He was able to explain the problem I was having with my ear and to easily take care of it. After having visited several doctors in the past few years, I would say that Dr. Patel was by far the most personable. I would recommend him to anyone.
I thought I had a cotton swab from a Q-TIp stuck in my ear & went to see Dr. Patel to verify it & if there was one, to have it removed (turned out to be nothing in there, phew!). Dr. Patel was very nice/friendly & I was happy with my visit. Will definitely come back if I have other issues for him to check out.
Dr. Patel has been my specialist for quite some time now. He has NOT disappointed me. He shows great compassion towards his pts. People that want the "best" care should go with the "best" ENT specialist, Dr. Nilesh Patel.
Dr. Patel was friendly and knowledgeable
He was quick, efficient, and knowledgeable. Not very warm or overly intimate, but he gets the job done. And he does it very well.
Short wait, very professional!!! Dr. Patel answered all of my questions and made sure I had a clear understanding of the problem before I left the office. I will definitely be using his services for my future ENT needs!
Easy, fast, convenient and excellent treatment!
Appointment was on time. The doctor took his time and explained clearly to me what is wrong. Recommend.
I have been going to Dr. Patel for over a year and have always been satisfied with his diagnosis and care. He is clear in his diagnosis and explains everything in detail.
inproper staff response doctor is not intersted in repetitive patients.
I left feeling much better knowing exactly what the problem was. Dr. Patel was very thorough, ran a series of test and clarified any other questions I had. The front staff is very professional and kind.
I was pleasantly surprised at my appointment with Dr.Patel. He was very friendly and courteous and took his time with me as a patient, I did not feel rushed at all. There was hardly a wait time and his office staff were very nice as well. Clean office too. I will be sticking with Doctor Patel as my new ear doctor and be recommending him to family and friends.
I went to see him because I couldn't hear. He saw me in less than ten minutes from when I got there. After he saw me, i was able to hear again. He's a very friendly doctor and likes to listen. I highly recommend him.
Knows his work. Attentive & smart.
Veru nice and friendly doctor who explain me all my concerns
The doctor is very caring and takes his time listening to a patient's concerns.
Very nice and quick in the exam.
Upon reading Dr.Patel's many positive reviews i was pleasantly satisfied. I admit im not the easiest patient to deal with but Dr. Patel addressed all my concerns during made my visit. He surely lives up to his reputation and I consider him to be the absolute best doctor I have seen.
I'm very happy with my visit, Dr. Patel was very nice and thorough, and took the time to explain things clearly as opposed to throw in a bunch of terms like most doctors. I would highly recommend!
Dr. Patel was a very attentive and knowledgeable doctor. Cares for his patients and very personable!!
The doctor seemed to have a good clinical acumen and ability to pin point the underlying problems right away. However, overall I felt that there were too many leading questions and the appointment was rushed as he had reached a decision without completely listening to me completely. Additionally, I came to know only from the pharmacists that I was being put on oral steroids. I guess it would have been more appropriate if he discussed the same with me during the visit.
Dr. Patel was very thorough during our appointment. I went in to address a few conditions and he made sure I was well informed on the causes and as well as the treatment option. There was no wait, except for him until I was done completing the paperwork. He was able to relate my conditions and treatments to those with similar lifestyles, which help me feel even more comfortable with him. Instead of rushing me out or himself rushing out (as I have experienced with other medical professionals) he made sure I was pleased with the visit and content with what I learned about my conditions.
The visit was good.
I was extremely pleased with Dr. Patel's care. He is very knowledgeable, understanding, and might I add handsome. Pleasant atmosphere and I highly recommend him.
I had a wonderful experience during my visit with Dr.Patel. After seeing three separate Ent's for the exact same issue Dr. Patel managed to finally address the issue promptly and with no difficulty. He is without a doubt the most competent Ent I have ever seen. Also, the office staff was very professional, friendly and efficient. Though the restroom was undergoing some minor renovations it had no bearing on the care I received. I highly recommend this Dr. to anyone with ent concerns or issues. I cannot give him nor his office enough praise!!
Very professional and knowledgeable. Was able to pinpoint my problem right away and answered all of my questions. There are some repairs being done in the office but I did not mind. Considering they were able to accommedate me on the same day and his friendly staff went out of their way to obtain a referral from my GP. I will definetly recommend friends and family to Dr. Patel in the near future.
This was my second visit. The entire staff and Dr Patel were gracious and professional. I definitely recommend him.
Dr. Patel performed a surgery for me and i am very happy with the results!
He was very professional and listented to everything I said.
Very professional, pleasant staff. No long waits. I was referred to him by a friend of mine and will definitely recommend him to others.
I am satisfied.His attitude was friendly
He was very professional and in my opinion handled my son very well.
Very well spoken, attentive and open to conversation.
Met Dr. this afternoon and am very happy so far.
Very professional and caring! Explained in details the outcome of tests done in office.
Dr. Patel, very sound guy and excellent doctor. Wait was a pain though.
Dr. Patel was recommended by a family friend (an excellent doctor). I would highly recommend Dr. Patel as well. He listened to our concerns and advised us of the next course of action without beating around the bush.
Great doctor. Explained everything to me in a simple manner. Would highly recommend him to anyone who's having HNT issues.
Dr. Patel has an excellent bedside manner and addresse every one of my concerns. I appreciate his thoroughness and his approachability and openess to answering all questions.

AMAZING! Fast, efficient, thorough!
What an extremely pleasant doctor. Honest about everything.
Very competent doctor. He is easy going, professional, and thorough. He listened carefully and responded to all of my concerns, regardless of their relevance to my diagnosis. The visit included an examination of my ears and nasal cavities via camera and a very undertsandable explanation of my symptoms and my diagnosis. I would highly recommend Dr. Patel.
I would recommend Dr. Patel (and already have) to family, friends, collegues, and fellow ZocDoc users. He takes time to listen and offers real help. He is concerned about your health and working with the patient for a solution to the health issue.
I have seen 5 dr's already for the treatment of my ear and Dr. Patel took the time to actually LISTEN to me about the problem I was having and subsequent treatment and was very clear on all the information about what the problem with my ear is and the way he will handle the treatment. He actually cared enough to explain everything unlike most of the dr's that I have already seen and misdiagnosed me.
He was great. The wait time wasn't too. I do recommend him.
This was my first visit. Great atmosphere and friendly staff. The doctor and his assistant were very friendly and took the time to answer my questions.
I thought Dr. Patel had a lovely bedside manner, but I was not happy with the office environment during my visit, which smelled a lot like cigarette smoke.
Very pleasant to work with. The waiting room was busy and he still took the time to address my concerns and even ask if I had other questions. The staff wasn't all that nice (rude and cold) but the doc made up for it with his enthusiasm and patience.
Very pleasant doctor. Explained everything.
The doctor was friendly and through. I liked that he did not prescribe antibiotics right away for my sinus infection (mild).
Doctor Patel was very friendly and explained everything in a clear manner. I would definitely recommend him.
Dr. Patel explained the issue thoroughly and in layman's terms. Had a very good experience at his office.
Completely unhelpful in all ways. Came in for an allergy consultation but couldn't do any testing for me.
Very nice, calming, knowledgeable
Doctor was very nice, helpful and thorough. I felt really happy choosing him and I would highly recommend him.
Amazing patient interaction- attentive, personable and friendly. Didn't use jargon or speak around my questions- I highly recommend Dr. Patel to anyone who needs and ENT specialist.
Very professional, doesn't rush you and is thorough.
Patel was great. He has Saturday hours. I did not wait in the waiting room for an extended period. He was effificent, knowledgable, and educated me throughout the visit.

I had a great experience with Dr. Patel! Despite being miserably sick, I actually enjoyed my visit with him and will definitely be going back if I have other ENT problems.

Excellent doctor! Fixed me right up!
3 years in the city now & this is the best doctor i've seen. makes you feel very comfortable & this is important for me as a patient.
This is really great tools for Doctor Appointments.
Dr. Patel was wonderful, he was one of the few doctors that was in on a Saturday, even with it being a holiday weekend. He was thorough, nice and showed genuine concern. Definitely recommended!
I was very pleased with my son's visit, he answered all my questions and concerns. Dr.Patel follow up was also very good. Great doctor.
He is a very compassionate and comprehendable doctor that is very good in his field. He took me right away and got me started on my treatment.
Dr. Patel seemed very competent. He explained my condition thoroughly and gave me several options for recovery. Furthermore, he is just a nice guy.
I saw Dr. Patel yesterday & thought he & his staff were great. Im an anxiety prone person & they made me feel at ease. He addresed the initial issue for my visit & then other problems he saw with my allergies. He fully explained everything in language the average person can understand, he even gave a refferal for another doctor if my issue wasnt resolved. I have already recommended him to people.
Really hears out and does understand before he can give his comments on the diagnosis of the problem
Great with kids!
Was attentive and Responded to all my concerns well. the wait was reasonable for a new patient. Wonderful Experience!!!
Dr. Patel is a great doctor! He is very knowledgeable and has great bedside manner even though he is very busy. Highly recommended!
Dr Patel, was courteous and took his time to listen to my concerns.
i was very impressed with his professionalism and i will always go back to his clinic and recommend all my family and friend to do so too, thank you Dr Patel.God richly bless you and your Family.Paul Pires.
Orders too many tests, not enough hands-on treatment of symptoms.
I generally prefer the recommendations of close friends when it comes to doctors. But yesterday, after several days of feeling unwell and in dire need of a provider who would accept my insurance, I found Dr. Patel via ZocDoc. Although the doctor was clearly busy, he immediately put me at ease and took time to address my concerns. He was professional, personable and highly engaged. I received excellent, efficient treatment. Highly recommended.
Very kind and patient.
he was very professional very good
LOVED Dr. Patel. Explained everything, was nice and charismatic, has a great resume. Had a 10:15 appointment and was done at 11:15
I found the doctor very informative and his bedside manner was excellent.Would highly recommend him.
I felt so comfortable in his hands. Very professional.
Very co-operative and a good listener. His knowledge in his area of expertise are really great.
Office location is very convenient. People in the office are nice and professional. Wait time was insignificant. Doctor Patel spent right time on my questions, provided good checkup and recommendations. Since I don't have serious problems, I cannot tell anything critical about his professional knowledge. The appointment was enjoyable, effective and done in timely manner. I will definitely continue my followups with Dr. Patel next year. Thank you, Galina
I thought he was very knowledgable and seemed concerned. I appreciate his quickness and kindness and I am grateful for his gentleness in the procedure that was done. Thank you.
Super friendly and professional. Glad I found him! He's my ent Guy now!
Dr. Patel was very thorough in my exam and very pleasant, not rushed felt very taken care of at my appt. Defiently will recommend.
He is informative and direct when answering all my questions.
This was my first visit to Dr. Patel and I couldn't have asked for more. The wait was a bit longer than I like, but it was Saturday right before the holiday, so it could have been worse. He was extremely nice and professional. Will definitely return.
very useful visit. Dr Patel was knowledgable, polite, reassuring.
I was completely happy with this doctor.
I have been to his office twice and he was able to help fix my ear problem right away. If I have any problems in the future I will definitely go back to him.
Dr. Patel is one of the best doctors I have ever visited in America. He is very intelligent, patient, and thorough with his exam as well as takes into consideration your personal views on medicine (i.e., would you rather have a more homeopathic approach to healing, a script, or a combo of the two). I highly recommend Dr. Patel to anyone who is having ENT issues.
Dr. Patel was courteous, professional and thorough; most of all, my office visit was not rushed.
I think most people are wary when trying a new doctor. I was, mostly because it was my first time using ZocDoc and I didn't know what sort of quality doctors were available. Dr. Patel was incredibly amicable and the whole experience was pleasant. I definitely would recommend him to my friends (and already have).
He took the time to explain in detail what was wrong.
Great experience - excellent treatment, positive all the way around.
Rarely do doctor visits go as well as my visit with Dr. Nilesh did. I will recommend him to my family members and friends
Nice doctor. Caring and helpful- fixed the problem immediately. He was very clear with his explanation of what was wrong. I was only upset about the one hour wait it took to see him (standing bc all chairs were occupied).
Dr. Patel was excellent. He treated my ear problem quickly and pain free. I definitely plan on using him again for my follow up visits. He also explained the source of my problem. I highly recommend him for ENT issues.
My visit was very good.He answered all my questions thoroughly,adding insight on what my problem might be. I am optimistic about my treatment and follow up.
Dr. Patel is great. This was my first visit and I am very picky about my doctors. I could not believe how nice and caring Dr. Patel was. Will definitley go back again and again!! :-)
Very informative and thorough. Explained what caused my ear problem. Others who worked in the office that I've encountered were also very informative and patient.
we waited about 15 minutes, in the middle of summer on a saturday morning- i HIGHLY recommend this office. the doctor was wonderful and took care of my fiance right on the spot!
For my first time visiting his office I thought it went well. He addressed my needs and concerns. I plan on being a regular patient at his clinic. Very pleasant doctor.
The doctor was great.... Very crowded, somewhat disorganized office....but after the long wait,I was relieved to meet a kind, knowledgable, interested,unrushed doctor who simply and comfortably solved my problem. I would definitely recommend him.
Amazing doctor, very smart, good bedside manner and very thorough. Office wait is kind of annoying and something to be mindful of.
Doctor is absolutely lovely, professional, witty and knowledgeable. Ugly crammed waiting room, but worth it to see Dr. Patel.
Dr. Patel was very thorough and patient with me and I recommend him to every person who has anytype of ear problem.
He was very thorough, friendly, and did a great job. Staff was also very nice.
He was very professional, he service was excellent and I recommend him highly.
Quick assessment and options/ gave me a comprehensive hearing before diagnosing which I really appreciate! :)
very patient, intelligent and helpful with issue I presented.
