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.

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.

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.

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.
