He is very nice and caring. I felt like he really was concerned about my issues and wanted to find a solution for me. I am going back next week for a follow up.
He was ver patient and listened very helpful
i like him, but I need a more thorough physical. He has treated me for specific medical problems, but I need someone who knows all of my conditions, and can consult as appropriate. He is pleasant, listens, explains, prescribes. I need another appointment for an analysis of my lab tests.
Not sure yet
My only problem was the front desk person. He claimed that I was suppose to know to come 15 minutes early to fill out paperwork. He almost turned me away, based on information that was never relayed to me.
As someone who gets a bit anxious at a doctor's office, I felt very comfortable for 1st visit as new primary physician. Took time to discuss past health history and make me feel comfortable. I felt he was a good choice.
Dr. Patel was superbly compassionate. Polite, professional. He allayed my health concerns. I left his office feeling encouraged about my health care.

Love booking appt online, though was called to confirm and asked to call rather than book online in the future. Other than that,very good experience.
New patient visit. After filling the questionnaire I was seen by doctor just in like 10 minutes. The doctor was very professional, understood exactly my issue, gave recommendation for the further analysis and even supplied me with the some amount of the required medicine!
They put me in a room, forgot about me, and I left after 35 mins of waiting for the doctor!!!
He was very nice and addressed my concerns. I was very happy with this visit.
Dr. Patel took a lot of time getting to know me as a new patient. He addressed all four of my concerns, not a nurse, but him! He asked all the questions and was kind and gentle. My regular doc couldn't get me in today so I was happy with being able to book online and be seen right away. I had to drive all the way to folsom from Carmichael but it was worth it. I have officially switches physicians and would highly recommend Dr. Patel and team.
Very polite professional and thorough
It was my first appointment, so all I can say is he is a very nice doctor. I will know more as times goes on.
Adequate. Language was a bit difficult for me.
We recently relocated from Colorado and were looking for a new family MD. Dr. Patel is a great guy! Very polite and personable and professional. I arrived 15 mins. early and was escorted directly to the exam room. Before I ever finished the paperwork, he came in and helped me finish it while going through the exam. He was detailed and inquisitive of my previous medical issues. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Patel! He's a comforting and caring doctor. Jack
This was the best experience worth a doctor I have had ever.
Very personable and reassuring. Would definitely recommend Dr. Patel.
