Verified Patient Reviews
I was impressed how quickly my appointment was made and how quick I got my foot taken care of
My appointment with Dr. Patel was great. She answered all of my questions and gave me new helpful information.
It took longer to numb my toe than the actual procedure itself. She was helpful and so was her assitant.
Dr. Patel is an excellent Doctor. Professional and explains information well.
She was effective for my need.
I was very nervous about a procedure, and Dr. Patel was kind and compassionate, explaining everything. Couldn't ask for better!
Loved her and Zocdoc but I hope I don't continue to get 3-4 emails a day!
Had a PAINLESS cortisone shot and pleasant chat with Dr Nisha
I have been seeing Dr. Patel off and on (when needed) for around 2 years. She is great, really listening to my concerns and always giving me options for treatment. Her first recommendation has always been the easiest and usually the least expensive. I would highly recommend her.
Dr. Patel was very professional. She had an x-ray done of my ankle and saw that there was a cyst there. I will return in two weeks after she drew out liquid and injected something else into the cyst. Hopefully I won't have to have surgery to remove it. I was very impressed with Dr. Patel.
Went for a second opinion and was very pleased with options Dr. presented
Dr. Patel is consistently competent, efficient, and always a pleasure to see.
Doctor Patel is great. Very personable and caring!
It went very well. Dr. Patel identified the problem and explained to me clearly what caused it and what will alleviate it. I felt relieved and reassured by her opinion. ?? I had filled out patient forms online and the staff was able to print them up. Saved all that paperwork at the time of my office visit. Very efficient! ??
I liked her and trusted what she said. This was my first visit to a podiatrist and I wished she had proactively shared more information - I asked a lot of questions which was fine - I would have liked her to explain/educate a bit more without me having to ask. I'm not sure I asked all I should have. Overall I am happy and will see her again.
Dr Patel has been great and helped me with my foot issues. I would recommend her to everyone. She is very compassionate and caring. I trust her judgment and know that she is doing what is best for me.
Very good experience. She diagnosed the problem and gave me an injection - hoping this will resolve the pain issue.
Dr. Patel was very helpful and professional. I came away with a good feeling.
I thought Dr. Patel did an excellent job. I was seen right away and the visit was thorough. I definitely recommend her.
Dr. Patel was very professional yet compassionate, answered all my questions plus more. Gave me several options for treatment of both the medical issues I went to her for. Highly recommend her.
Wonderful experience, my big toe is very grateful.
Dr Patel is very professional and reassuring. She presented my husband with 3 options for treatment and provide the upside and downside of each treatment. The entire appointment went very well.
It was a long appointment due to X-rays, an examination and foot molds for custom orthotics, but it was worth having my painful foot condition diagnosed and a course of treatment discussed. Luckily, I do not need surgery anytime soon. Dr. Patel is smart, has great bedside manner, and inspires confidence. I highly recommend her.

GREAT!!! As always
I thought she was very attentive and professional. She treated me promptly and explained what she was doing, gave me choices, and advised me of follow-up appointments.
I had high expectations based on what I had heard about Dr. Patel, and she exceeded my expectations. She listened carefully to each of my problems and then suggested a plan of treatment for each one. I very happy when I left the office that I had finally found someone that could help me with my problems and look foreword to finally making progress with issues that have been building up over the past few years, despite visits to two other local podiatrists who had little to offer.
Visit was fine for a first visit. Wait was a little long but Dr. Patel and the staff were pleasant so it made up for it. I didn't realize they had dogs - two very large dogs. Had I known that in advance I probably wouldn't have gone because I am NOT a dog person, but the dogs stayed out of my way for the most part. I have a follow-up appointment and I will go back.

I got an appt. right away and Dr. Patel was able to offer me suggestions to help me deal with my bunionette, including which type of shoes to wear and how to avoid exacerbating the pain point. I took both my kids along and they were fascinated with the foot skeleton in the exam room. I was able to buy orthotics in the office that have really made a difference in my shoes. The pain is lessening each day.

I just wanted to say that after a whole year going to another doctor I came to see Dr. Patel and she took x-ray of my toe and game a solution. Very happy.
Overall, very good. Dr. Nisha was delayed due to surgery but it was not a problem for me.
Dr. Patel saved my life. No exaggeration. Infection in foot was horrid and spreading until Dr. Patel treated my foot surgically and me with patience and understanding.

Pleasant personality and professional attitude. sidenote: I never knew how pricey toes could be. No wonder our country is having issues with health insurance.
