From the time you walk in, the reception desk is welcoming and engaged with answering any questions. Dr. Patel’s medical assistant was very attentive and professional. As for Dr. Patel, her reviews fall short. She is very attentive, shows passionfor her profession and provides useful feedback to any questions. This office exceeded my expectations and I look forward to having this location as my primary care.

My wife and I are moving soon, and one of our biggest regrets is that we won't easily find as fantastic a doctor as Nisha Patel. Rarely have I come across a professional from any field as compassionate, interested, and pragmaticas Dr. Patel. She's gone out of her way to listen and respond to every one of my concerns, suggested valuable interventions, and genuinely reassured me that with all my medical challenges I was not alone. Her kindness and bedside manner would have been enough to warrant praise- but she's also steadfastly committed to improving health outcomes and has repeatedly provided better advice and direction in uncommon health topics than specialists I've worked with for years. There simply aren't enough people, let alone medical practitioners, with the empathy, breadth of knowledge, and humanitarian drive of Dr. Patel. I recommend her without reservation, and am thankful to have found her!

I am in love with Dr. Nisha and allll of the staff at her office. Truly amazing people. I went in there shaking so hard (regular checkup but I have forever been terrified of doctors visits) and they put me atease so sweetly. Dr. Nisha herself is candid and sweet and thorough. I’m happy to have a primary care doctor again after 15 years. And I’m glad it’s her!!

Nisha has been my doctor for years and always listens to my concerns and is very comforting, but realistic about them. They get me in right away and if it seems like my medical issue is a high priority they fitme into their schedule instead of turning me away. Everyone in the office is very friendly.

If you owe anything on your bill, you're basically denied full service and will get treated as a PEASANT!! "You people" should have not been used because I took it as a racial insult and was categorized by other decisions based off my age.

I really had a great experience discussing some future skin care regimes and options. The office was very clean, friendly, and welcoming and I feel the staff was very informative, easy to talk to, realistic about what my options and resultscould be from the variety of services that they offer. I was very impressed and am absolutely interested in repeat services with them.

It was one of the worst. Doctor was running away from me saying you are sick. She didn't even bother to check me properly and just gave the verdict within seconds and then ran away. The staff was very unfriendly anddidn't send prescription in time. Knowing I was in pain, they showed no empathy and kept going as their usual business. It's a typical money making business they are running not a healthcare provide office. And yes, the doctor was over booked for almost all the time slots and there was huge wait.

I have a severe phobia of doctors & have been avoiding a visit for 5 years. I recently had some changes going on with my body so I decided I had to go. Dr. Nisha Patel was so warm, kind &personable. Her approach is just what I needed to feel comfortable. She spent a lot of time with me to ensure all of my questions were answered and she really put me at ease. I will definitely be going back to see her as my GP for any concerns or checkups.

I like seeing Dr Nisha Patel always have! I would like to note that today the staff that was there was excellent all were great at getting me in and getting me taken care of for my appointment. I would recommendher to others I know she has my best interests at heart. I am not an easy patient I question a lot and really don't like to take meds or do things that don't make sense to me so I question a lot when it comes to my health so I am a bit rambunctious I admit it. I don't wish to do things that make me take additional tests or meds Ilke all natural items and do things that help me when needed but usually I am a pretty healthy person. I want you to know Dr Nisha Patel that I do appreciate you and do think your a great Doctor you have not lead me astray I appreciate you I am just a very curious no nonsense type of gal your a strong doctor and like it. thanks for all you do I am sure I am not your typical patient.

I don't like going to doctors, and haven't had a consistent Primary Care Physician since high school. However, meeting Dr. Patel was different than all of my other attempts at finding a PCP. She listened intently, made me feel comfortable aboutmy situation, and put together a reconciliation plan that made sense. I felt like she respected me and cared about my well-being much more than the hordes of doctors who are busily scribbling notes while you're talking to them, wondering if they're paying attention to what you're saying. Her nursing staff and front desk staff were top-notch, too. I'll definitely be coming back, and it won't take years like it did the last time I searched out a PCP.
