Professional Statement

History Established in 2005. A patient's comfort level and confidence in his or her doctor is key to building a great relationship and paramount to the way I practice. You can be rest assured that every avenue of treatment will be explored and discussed from conservative to surgical means while allowing you to walk away with complete knowledge of the problem as well as having full confidence in the solution. About Dr. Patel Dr. Rahul Patel is a highly trained podiatric foot and ankle surgeon who is also on the forefront of the world's most advanced medical breakthroughs as a regenerative medicine specialist using stem cells/bone marrow aspirate concentrate, and amniotic tissue grafts. He is the the first surgeon at New York Presbyterian Queens to introduce stem cell grafting for foot surgery. Despite being trained in reconstructive foot and ankle surgery, he also focuses on non-surgical podiatric needs such as foot & ankle injuries, tendinitis, diabetic foot care, heel pain, ingrown/fungal toenails, warts and other skin disorders. He also has an extensive knowledge in proper footwear for runners, basketball, and tennis athletes which he uses as part of his comprehensive treatment protocols. Dr. Patel graduated from undergrad at NYU, followed by the New York College of Podiatric Medicine in 2001 with a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine degree. He began a comprehensive 4 year residency program at Good Samaritan Hospital in West Islip, New York, finishing as chief resident in July 2005 and earning Chief Resident of The Year honors among nearly 50 peers. His surgical training encompassed everything from bunions and hammertoes to trauma and clubfoot deformities. He is also trained in wound care and hyperbaric oxygen treatment

I've been seeing Dr. Patel due to a pretty bad sesmoid fracture in my foot. Beyond his knowledge, guidance, diagnosis and assistance, he is equally as charming and warm. I feel incredibly lucky that I decided to come to Dr. Patel in the first place, sincerely recommend him to anyone!

Dr. Patel is the most personable yet professional doctor I have ever come across. He took a few minutes to get to know me as a person before he got to know me as a patient. He was incredibly thorough and happily answered all of my questions. He even answered questions I did not even know I had- he truly covered all of the bases. I did not feel rushed and he took his time- spending almost 40 minutes with me. I highly reccommend Dr. Patel!

I am new to the area and Dr. Patel was highly recommended to me by another doctor. I was having different problems in both feet. Dr. Patel diagnosed both quickly and offered immediate solutions. He is very knowledgable and took a lot of time to explain what was going on. He also sent me numerous texts to help me understand and research the problems more thoroughly. I was impressed. He is very friendly and at the same time very professional. He has already got me on the road to recovery. I will definitely be going back. Highly recommended!!

The wait was only because I arrived early. Dr. Patel saw me at exactly the time of my appointment. Dr. Patel spent a fair amount of time addressing my issues and concerns. He clearly explained my options to me and walked me through all suggested procedures. I am very satisfied with him and am planning to continue working with him for my specific problem. I highly recommend Dr. Patel!

This doctor administered treatment that I later found out set me back on the road to recovery. Just as bad, he violated my boundaries (seems to not know where the line is between flirting/sexual harassment and establishing a positive alliance with a patient) to the point that I felt too uncomfortable to ever go back to him.
