Verified Patient Reviews
Professional, knowledgeable, efficient, and friendly! I'm so glad I found her!
She is great. The office is with several others but her team was lovely. So easy
Dr. Rakhee Patel is very considerate and patient. The clinic service and environment are very good.
Waiting for over an hour to be seen for 2 minutes... doctor has great bedside manner but I will not be returning due to the wait time. It's disrespectful to make someone wait that long.
I literally waited less than five minutes to be seen everything was so quick. I was a new patient but I filled out all the papers through Zocdoc which made it easier they just need my signature and initials on some pages and that’s it no worries about sitting filling out paperwork and seamless visit quick and very friendly people in the office as well as Dr.Patel she is very sweet and makes you feel comfortable with any concerns you have.
Dr. Patel has the best bedside manner I have experienced! She is professional yet warm and caring and very informative with keeping up good health practices. I drive an hour to see her and these are just. A few good reasons why Ineill continue to do so.
She’s great! She answered all of my questions as usual and once I was seen I was out of the office in no time.
No wait. Great service! Love coming here!
Dr. Patel has been my obgyn for about 3 years, she super thorough and made me feel extremely comfortable after my previous obgyn left unexpectedly weeks before i gave birth to my second daughter. Wait times are average, im usually in and out within a half an hour and as I've stated, during each visit, any questions I've had were answered, and any test results were explained and answered on time.
Dr. Patel is wonderful. She helped us all through the process of getting pregnant and now through our pregnancy. I would highly recommend her.
Very nice and listened with no judgement. I’ll be making her my primary OBGYN.
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 made me 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 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. Only upon 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.
I did annual Pap smear test. The test was done in about 30 seconds. However, I waited for more than one and half hours before I was seen by the doctor. I felt the appointments were way too overbooked!
Dr Patel, was straight forward and to the point on addressing the concerns. She was available right on the time. She provides us good advise related to our family planning process
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 action in case the current medication did not work. She inspires confidence and is compassionate, which means a lot to me.
The doctor is just simply amazing, she helped us with delivery of our first child. we, as parents, would highly recommend her - she is professional and highly reliable. Thank you doctor!
My husband and I can’t say enough great things about Dr.Patel and all of her staff. Patel and her team took great care of me during my first pregnancy and labor. She was kinda and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend her and will be returning to her with my future pregnancies.
Doctor Patel is an amazing professional . She is very knowledgeable. She is always take time to answer all your questions.I am glad I found doctor Patel . She is taking care of my pregnancy and is doing a fantastic job . I couldn't make a better election. Would definitely recommend.
I am a first time mom and Dr Patel made all attempts to explain all the little things about pregnancy. She very well explained all the do's and don'ts that every new mom is confused about. Good beside manner. Overall a happy visit.
Great Doctor!!! I didn't have to wait a long time to see the Doctor. I would highly recommend Dr Rakhee Patel.
Excellent! Dr.Patel was very professional, listened to my needs - best experience with a doctor in my life! :)
Overall Dr. Patel was very nice. My only reservation is that I felt slightly uncomfortable after she told me that I was pregnant when I was not. Apparently, her physician's assistant gave her the results of another patient's test instead of mine. Besides this part of my visit, everything went smoothtly.
Dr. Patel made me feel very comfortable.
Excellent! It was my first time with her and she's really great.
Very friendly, caring, and sweet! Down to earth personality.
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.
Very friendly and informative. She took the time to explain everything I had questions about and her staff was also generous and provided the information I needed for further appointments.
I high recommend Dr. Patel, she is wonderful and very kind, she explain me everything that I need to know.
She Listens. She stays up-to-date with the the advances, presents viable options, and believes in being thorough.
She is the best doctor ever
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 visits throughout 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.
The doctor was great!! Really liked her, the staff is really kind as well. The wait time for 30 mins which was not so great but otherwise she is a great friendly doctor!
I was trying to find an OBGYN in Jersey City, and Dr. Patel was the only Dr that had immediately openings and overall I would NOT recommend her, unless you needed someone right away. From her walking into the door, the exam took about 1.5 minutes! She was in and out, and literally didn't bother to even ask me any other questions. She was on her way out the door when I had to throw out a question about future pregnancy. Further, I didn't know that I had to take my bra off when undressing, and she proceeded to do my breast examination ON TOP OF MY PADDED BRA! I'm really not sure how effective that was....and I also want to mention that there were no other patients in the office at that time. I really hope this was a one off situation for the sake of her other patients.
Dr. Patel is kind, knowledgable and efficient. She made me feel comfortable throughout my exam, and was helpful in providing answers to my questions.
I did not like it because I waited a lot for the doctor and when the query arrived it was very fast.
Rakhee Patel AND her staff were excellent. By far my warmest doctor visit ever!
It was a really great visit. I like that she is direct, answers questions honestly and gives you reasonable outcomes for your options. Great sense of humor which good when you dealing with sensitive subjects. Great bedside manner. Staff at the office are pleasant and professional. The office is a little difficult to find if you are unfamiliar with the area but I like that it is airy and open.
Very quick but thorough, pleasant to talk to, listened to and addressed concerns well. No complaints!
She is a very nice doctor. I felt like I was talking to a friend. Trust her right away, and she actually really listened. First time I've left a doctor's office (besides Planned Parenthood) in a very long time feeling like I was in good hands.
she listened and gave honest opinion on the issue
Such a friendly doctor.
She was late arriving delaying the appointment but once I saw her she was great. Very helpful and answered all my questions such that I left feeling totally aware of my medical situation and far less anxious. Very friendly
Not much experienced doctor, will not suggest to a friend
The nurses were very nice and took my information quickly. The doctor was nice and personable.
It was pretty fast and valuable. The doctor did listen to the problem in detail and provided her view. She was friendly and would definitely recommend her for all my close ones.
My appt with Dr. Patel wasn't bad, she answered all my questions and was informative but her medical assistant Andria was horrible no bedside manner, very unprofessional....she seemed clueless didn't know what she was doing....pretty scary Although I liked Dr. Patel her medical assistant Andria makes me rethink seeing her again.
The wait for the doctor was long even though there was virtually an empty office and then when she finally did show up to perform an annual pap exam she was in and out in less than 3 minutes. Not exactly the kind of care and attention to detail that you hope for in a medical professional. In fact, I had to stop her from leaving the room so I could ask some questions that seem routine to me as a patient. I then was billed for the extra questions even though it was supposed to be a fully covered annual wellness exam. Pfft. I would not recommend her to anyone. When I called the office to see what the extra cost was for the lady that answered the phone was rude and kept interrupting me. Also had to call to get my results - they told me that if they didn't call then everything was fine but given how quickly the Dr performed her duties I would be surprised if my tests were even accurate.
She was quick and in a hurry. Said that "You don't have the best insurance". Umm.. I already know that! So that determines how you treat your patients? You should not say things like that...people already know that they have bad insurance if they have it. It's a snobbish thing to say. I know because...well, I'm a snob. So I found her to be insensitive and curt. I asked her to call in some medicine for me for an issue I was having. She said ....let me see...I don't know what I would recommend. That's when she said you don't have the best insurance. She finally came up with something. I will try it and see if it works. I would not recommend her to anyone. She was not very caring and sensitive for a GYN. I think my exam was about 4 or 5 min. I hope I'm not exaggerating but It felt very very rushed. Will not be back as ....I have such lousy insurance.
Waited 2:30hrs to get in.. She was in a rush didn't ask me anything just did the test and was about to leave. I had to stop her so I could talk to her about some concerns that I had and she didn't even sat down to listen to me... Very unprofessional!.. I'm a very disappointed... Waited 2:30 hrs and she didn't last not even 5 min with me in a room!!! Never going back
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 with any 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.
She was very down to earth, very knowledgable of the necessary steps to take, and was very patient and made me feel very welcoming.
Very clean office. Staff is nice and professional. Dr. Patel is very professional and listens to her patients.
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 even had and when I called them to rectify, they insisted that I had them! What a pain getting it rectified.
The wait was a long time because she had a delivery at the hospital. When she did arrive, even though there was quite a few patients waiting ahead of me, the wait wasn't long. She was professional and knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable during the visit.
Plesent comforting relaxing very professional would recommend Dr Patel to anyone that needs an Ob/ Gyn doctor
Service was rushed. I did not feel like she took the time to really listen to my symptoms.
Dr. Patel is by far the best OBGYN i ever met. She answered all of my questions , was very patient with me. The staff is great ! I highly recommend her to anybody thats nervous to see a GYN for the first time. She's Great! and very caring!
Dr. was very friendly! I felt comfortable & best of all, I didn't wait AT ALL. They took me back immediately & I filled out my new patient paperwork while I was answering the nurses questions. Using that time wisely, love that!
The experience was terrible. I had booked an annual checkup. 1) There were no instructions on what to eat or what would they do before. 2) I lost my way. I was trying to call them no one was lifting. 3) They were extremely slow. 4) The staff was very very rude. 5) I had given my blood and I had one small question because the lady who took my blood said she is not going to test for diabetes and cholestrol (which is extremely important when an annual check up is done). When I wanted to follow up with the doctor on that the staff made me sit for 35 mins and no ETA or intimation. Or atleast did not say come back. They just were so rude to talk to. I was just made to sit...... And all this is for an annual physical checkup which must be so structured. 6) No proper information on what tests they would be doing. If properly done it should not take more than half an hour and they made me wait 2 hours and did nothing. I will never go here in my life again
Doctor seemed nice but the nurse outside didn't seem too friendly. Overall experience would be average.
She's nice. She gives us time to ask her questions. She understands our situation I guess. Moreover, she accepts patients though they are in 2nd trimester and I think tht she's the right gyno to those who are new to NJ.
Dr. Patel was very nice once I got in to see her. However, I waited for over 1.5hrs to be seen. Staff was nice. Wait didn't seem at all necessary as the office didn't seem busy.
First timer and Dr. Patel was super professional and she made me super comfortable in such an awkward situation. Highly recommend. Glad I found her.
The visit itself was fine, but I waited over an hour in order to see her for less than 3 minutes. It was a Friday and I could tell that they got backed up, but it was my first time meeting her, and I would have liked some more quality time getting to know my new doctor. The office also has thin walls, so I was worried about speaking about my past medical history in a room where everyone else waiting and working could hear me.
Amazing! Great! Dr. Patel is a wonderful and caring doctor. Very understanding, her doctor, patient relationship is excellent, her main goal is to have the patient comfortable at all times... not to forget.. she explains everything... Dr. Patel Rocks!!! An absolute 10...
Staff was very professional and Dr. Patel was very professional as well. I will be coming back to her.
Very sweet and understanding doctor. Would recommend
she is amazing and made my visit a great pleasure. I will look forward to seeing her again .I totally recommend.
Incredibly thoughtful, kind and listens.
After searching for about a year, I finally found my GYN. Sr. Patel was patient ans knowledgeable. That is so hard to find in a GYN. She didn't make me feel like an idiot with my concerns. I was so happy when I left her office. Highly recommend.
Very great experience! She is very friendly and does not rush with her patients. She takes her time and is the most professional doctor that I have ever met. I am SO happy that Dr Patel is the one that was chosen to take over the practice. I no longer have to be nervous about my gynecological appointments.
Informative and very cooperative. The staff was nice too.
She I should awesome and caring doctor
She is very encoraging and answers all questions we had politely without any hurry. I would recommend her.
Very happy with the doctor and staff. Dr Patel was friendly and patient with me. She answered all my questions and made me comfortable during my exam. Would recommend her to all my friends and family!
I am never looking forward to gynecology appointments for the obvious reasons, but having a doctor like Dr. Patel is such a different experience from prior ones I've had. She explains everything very well before starting the exam. She introduced herself in a very professional way and I immediately felt comfortable. She is unbelievably friendly and you can tell she is a compassionate person. I highly recommend this doctor!
I was a bit nervous about seeing a gynecologist, being that the last time was over 7 years ago. However, Dr. Patel was very reassuring and explained everything thoroughly. She introduced herself and told me exactly what to expect. I am very impressed with her knowledge of the medical field. She is very up to date with medical information, but explains everything in a way that her patients can understand. She is patient and very kind. I no longer have to be a nervous wreck before my gynecological exams with Dr Patel !
I had my first appointment with Dr. Patel last Monday and I must say that I was extremely pleased with the entire visit. The office staff was welcoming and accommodating. My wait time was minimal, as I was seen immediately by Dr. Patel after I entered the room. Dr. Patel was incredibly warm, polite and caring, as well as professional and knowledgable throughout our encounter. She was constantly smiling and had such a calm, soothing, cheerful demeanor which made me feel very comfortable and at ease. Dr. Patel provided her full attention and took the time to actively listen to me and addressed all my questions and concerns in detail without making me feel rushed. She even used a poster to further explain exactly what she was talking about, to ensure that I completely understood everything! During the examination, Dr. Patel described what she would be doing before she did it, which I greatly appreciated. She showed a genuine interest in my overall health and well-being, even followed-up with me via telephone a few days after our appointment! My overall experience was excellent and I will definitely continue to see Dr. Patel throughout my pregnancy and all my future gynecological needs. An added bonus is the ease of making an appointment online and her convenient office hours that work with my busy schedule. She is an amazing physician and I highly recommend her to anyone that needs an OB/GYN!
It was my first time visiting a gyn but she made it seem less uncomfortable than I thought it would be. She was very gentle. Will definitely go to her again.
totally unprofessional -I waited in the exam room for an hour before the dr came to be interviewed by the Dr for less than 5 minutes including examination -the Dr seemed in a hurry she didn't care to take careful history and interrupted me when i tried to clarify few things -the examination was rough she didn't explain what she is doing or what samples she is taking - she told me to call to her other office after 3 days , and i'v been trying to so far in both offices and the nurses keep throwing me back and forth -the nurses were chatting and laughing about personal matters in front of the patients
Dr Patel was amazing. made me feel very at ease and addressed any questions/concerns I may have had. was very knowledgable.
Dr. Patel was very attentive and patient. She answered all of my questions and addressed all of my concerns. I highly recommend her.
The best obgyn doctor I've ever gone too.made me feel very comfortable.
I was a little nervous. I mean its GYN for Christ sake. lol..... However, she make you feel comfortable, she listens, she ask questions and not pushing because she has more patients. I am satisfied, and she made me felt comfortable. Great medical advice too!
I had a wonderful experience with Dr Patel and her staff, given the sensitive nature of my visit. She made me feel comfortable, she communicated well and gave me clear information about my diagnosis. Dr Patel followed up with a personal phone call to check on me three days later. That personal touch will have me continue to use Dr Patel going forward. She showed great care towards me in a less than favourable situation, and for that, I am most thankful.
She was very professional and made me feel comfortable being that this was my first ever visit to a gyno. I would definitely recommend her to others.
She was great. Very educational and caring. Definitely, will be going back.
