I was visiting Dr Patel since an year, and she never spent more than a min or two with me and never listened in details about my concerns. She was always talking about vague statements, and never was empathetic towards me.I always left the appointment extremely stressed and upset from her clinic. I was so concerned about my fertility issues but doctor Patel was so uncaring about it. She eevn failed to inform me about my increased thyroid level and said everything is normal.

If you're married, north of 30 and planning on having not immediately, I would not recommend going to Dr. Patel. She put a lot of guilt on me for not being ready for pregnancy (which by the way is a MAJORlife decision that takes place inside of my body) and gave the generic, "you're never ready." I shared how I had started my own business and knew I needed a couple years to grow it before I plan of bringing a child into my life. She told me if I couldn't grow my business to a point that it had high profitability in six months, that I should quit the business I was working so hard on and just get a full-time job.... you know, because that's so easy these days. I asked her if I could check my fertility (to be sure I'm not putting it off too long) and she rolled her eyes and said I could, but it wouldn't really matter because one month I could be fully fertile and the next not fertile at all. I left the appointment extremely stressed and upset. I have never experienced bedside manner so uncaring and rude. I also always wait well over an hour at this doctor's office and because of this experience will not be returning.

I love Dr. Patel! She is very caring and informative with her patients. I recently moved from Bayonne, NJ to live with my spouse. It is hard trying to find a really good obgyn which is why I have no problemtraveling just to see Dr. Patel because I know I am in good hands with her.

Dr. Patel failed to inform me of abnormal Pap smear results for 7 months. It wasn’t until I started to experience some concerning symptoms that I realized I’d never received my pap results. When I called the office, they told meI’d have to wait another week (after 7 months of waiting) before they could provide me with the results because dr. Patel was away at a medical conference. When they finally did call back, it was the receptionist, not Dr. Patel, who called to inform me that I had tested positive for high risk HPV. Not only was this negligent, but it was incredibly upsetting that Dr. Patel could not even be bothered to call me herself, apologize for their failure to inform me of these (abnormal) results and answer any questions I may have had. Mistakes happen, it’s how you handle or deal with the mistake that really leaves a lasting impression. Needless to say, I’ve left Dr. Patel’s practice and have found a wonderful new practitioner.

This was my first visit. I arrived 15 minutes prior to my appt time @ 9:15. I walked in the front door and there was no one sitting at the front desk. I waited for 7 minutes before seeing someone inscrubs walk or from behind the counter and walk right past me. I said excuse me, i need to check in. She pointed to a desk in the corner - which is not visible nor does it have a sign that says OBGYN. It’s sits right next to another desk for physical therapy. The lady at the desk was nice, however i waited over an hour just sitting there and spent 5 minutes with the Dr. It was all too chaotic and with no privacy. I got my urine cup at that desk in the corner and I wrote my name with a marker on it...

I thought Dr Patel was really great. But the location I went to, I’m not a fan of. It was dirty and looked like they didn’t have a good cleaning staff. When I go to a doctors office, I expect itto be clean and not have to see the trash in the exam room piled up. The trash looked like it hadn’t been empty in days. The room was cluttered, and the beds/chairs looked like they needed to be replaced. As much as I liked Dr. Patel, I May not come back due to the cleanliness.

Dr. Patel is SO sweet, as is every charming woman in her Jersey City office. I needed some blood work done and am afraid of needles, and their phlebotomist was so kind and gentle that I was able to avoid mynormal panic attack. I’ve already recommended her to my NJ based sister as well. Thanks, Dr. Patel!

I highly recommend Dr. Patel because she is professional and she makes me feel at ease. Her and her whole staff always make sure I am taken care of whenever I have an appointment with them. Communication is key, not onlybetween the patient and doctor, but also the internal team. They work together to make sure everybody is aligned. If I can give more than 5 stars, I will!

I loved having Dr. Patel as my OBGYN. I started seeing her when I become pregnant in Spring 2017. She is very kind & professional. She was confident in her answers to my questions. She also responded in ways that mademe feel like I did not need to be worried or concerned. Her staff is very friendly and helpful as well. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an OBGYN.

Dr. Patel is without a doubt the best Obstetrician/ Gynecologist I have ever encountered. She went beyond my expectations from the first moment I decided to be her patient. My partner and I decided it was time to start a family.From the beginning, Dr. Patel gave us all the tools and support to make this stage wonderful and one that we could enjoy to the fullest. Although my pregnancy was very healthy throughout, at the end there were unexpected complications. During this difficult time, Dr. Patel demonstrated once again her great knowledge and experience. She saved my life and the life of my baby and we will be forever grateful to her. Another thing that definitely makes Dr. Patel special is her bedside manner. We are rarely lucky enough to find doctors who genuinely care about their patients and Dr. Patel is someone who is considerate in her work, she does it with passion like no other.

Dr. Patel seemed very rushed during this appointment and did not seem to be paying attention to the context I was giving her. She misheard a critical piece of the condition I was explaining, and gave me an opposite recommendation. Onlyupon asking her multiple questions and clarifying what she meant did I realize that she had misheard me completely. She should have confirmed what she heard with me first, and if she was more patient and careful in listening to me, this would not have been an issue in the first place. I worry what would have happened had I not questioned her and realized that she was providing the wrong recommendation. I lost trust in her as a doctor due to this and am going to another doctor for a second opinion.

Dr Rakhee Patel is amazing and undoubtedly the best OBGYN in the area. Dr Patel helped us to tackle every stage in the pregnancy smoothly . She listens attentively to all the concerns and answers each of them patiently. Our visitsthroughout the pregnancy have been like a breeze. Never had a problem even with a single visit in the last one year. Her bedside manner is fantastic. She is really passionate about the work. She was there in the hospital for 36 hours straight during and after the delivery and even then every step and every decision she explained to us and made us feel at ease even during the tense situations. I am really amazed to see how she cares for her patients and her support staff is extremely helpful. Anytime of the day/night when we had questions they were answered promptly. Haven’t experienced such a dedicated and a caring team elsewhere. We are really thankful to her and falling short of words to describe how an amazing doctor and a wonderful human being SHE IS.

I had been through 2 doctors before seeing Dr. Rakhee. She was the most thorough of them all. She actually listened to my problems and explained the issue instead of just prescribing medicines. She also laid out future course of actionin case the current medication did not work. She inspires confidence and is compassionate, which means a lot to me.

On my first appointment, she barely spent 2 min examining me on my annual check up! She was in and out of the room before i even realized what happened. Later her office charged me for tests that I hadn't evenhad and when I called them to rectify, they insisted that I had them! What a pain getting it rectified.

The entire experience with Dr. Rakhee Patel right from the time she confirmed my pregnancy to the day she helped me deliver our baby was outstanding. She made the entire pregnancy feel like a breeze. She did not bother us withany irrelevant details and kept everything as simple as she could. All our worries and apprehensions were always answered with great ease and she always made us feel very comfortable. Her staff is also very warm and helpful. They all are very well organized and really friendly. The pregnancy coach, Nazia Haque, was helpful and encouraged us to take all the prep classes which are very useful and knowledgeable.
