Let's just say I wish I would have gone to Dr. Patel instead of going to my regular Dr. She was very attentive and listened as I discussed my symptoms and possible concerns. She was also very informative.

There was almost no wait time. Dr. Nimisha Patel was very polite and did through check-up, followed by answering all my concerns. Explained the condition in detail and also mentioned about the issues I might face in future because of myeye injury. I was really pappy to hear that it is just inflammation so far. I would highly recommend.

I arrived before my scheduled appointment which was at 1:00 pm, right after the lunch break. After I waited for 27 minutes, the doctor arrived but offered no apology or explanation for the delay. When I looked at my watch, sheacknowledged that it was 1:27 and asked if I had to go somewhere. On the positive side, the exam was thorough, and she explained the results of her examination very clearly.

I was not impressed. Took my insurance but ended up charging me way more than my insurance even covered for extra tests without even asking me. Afterwards, I wanted to get contacts and glasses; however, the lady in the frames departmentsmall talked with another patient for about 15 mins. Once she finally came to me, she was pretty rude. I will not be going to this doctor again and would not recommend them. The 5 star rating was misleading for me.

I have had great experiences with Dr. Patel. I found her 4 years ago online, after struggling with my contact lenses due to long hours in school and seasonal allergies. She switched my contact lenses and my solution, and since haven'thad any issues. I just recently went in for a check up and received the same great service. I waited less than 5 minutes, was in and out of the exam room in 30 minutes, and back to work before lunch.
