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 Iwon't have to have surgery to remove it. I was very impressed with Dr. Patel.

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 staffwas 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 herto 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.

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.
