Everything is fine. Nice Doc, nice staff. Just one thing can be better. After my lab test I got the medicines from the front desk. I was expecting to meet the doc once again before I leave to explain about themedicine.(I guess I can do this in medicine store). and also I guess after I get my lab reports I've to get more medicines. So would be better if I get all together.

The clerk forgot to have two of my scripts signed by the Doctor so when I went to the pharmacy I was not able to get the meds.That means two trips that could have been avoided. I called the clerk andsince it was already almost closing time and the doctor was already gone..I have to wait another day for those scripts to be sent to the pharmacy...there is surely a gap in communication.I even showed them my medical records where I had my meds listed but they missed to prescribe 2 maintenance medications for me.

Dr. Patois was knowledgeable and concerned about my condition and lifestyle. He recommended medicine at lower dosages and put me on a plan to long lasting health! I like how he didn't want to prescribe me drugs and decided to workout a plan that we both agreed I can do.

One of the most unprofessional doctors offices I've ever been to. Not only did I wait an hour after my scheduled appointment time. I've been trying to get the office to look at my x-ray and I'm constantly put on holdand then hung up on. Dr. Patolia was more interested in moving on to the next paitent then actually diagnosing the issues I had. I will never go to this office again even if I was bleeding from my eyes.

Dr Patolia took the time to listen to me and to explain what he was checking, the different possible illnesses. He gave me advice to ease the symptoms and speed up recovery in addition to the prescription. He really did consider his patient, not just wrote a prescription.

Dr. Patolia was my doctor for about five years before I changed insurance last year, and there was a mixup, and I had to see other doctors until I get back to him this year. Dr. Patolia and his staffare all efficient, caring, and quick. I would recommend him highly to anyone who wants a caring doctor. He listens, and actually cares about his patients.

Very happy with this doctors appointment. I went in to have some paperwork filled out that required an MD. Dr.Patolia was very helpful and thorough with the paperwork. The wait time was about 20 minutes from signing in to seeing thedoctor, not a long wait at all. Everything I needed was handled quickly and they accepted my insurance with no problems. I will be a returning patient for sure.

The weren't efficient about the visit . They sat me in 3 different rooms when they could easily do the entire visit in one room . I also didn't like how the doctor took the cotton swab the doctor examined mewith to another room without the test tube to another room.

I probably would not return back to see this doctor because he was not very energetic and seemed to rush things along. My appointment was at noon, and there were no patients in the lobby, which from the experience I had,I understand why. I went for a physical and all he did was ask the basic questions about family history that I had already filled out when I checked in. He checked me breathing with the stethoscope and that was all. The nurse/receptionist took my temperature and checked my weight then I went to another girl to get blood drawn. She was very friendly and eased my dislike of needles. She was the best part of the visit. Overall, I didn't feel that he was very helpful. I had a few of what I now know were bug bites, but wasn't sure if it was a rash, and asked him about them, and lifted my shirt to show him my stomach area and he didn't even glance at them. And acted as if I shouldn't be asking him that. He prescribed some generic medicine without actually looking or questioning about what I said might be a rash. As I write this review and think back more on my displeasing visit, I know for sure I won't be back. Not to mention the ridiculous parking fees. If you're inside longer than 15 minutes it's $4 to park, then about $6-8 after an hour or so I think. Luckily I was only there for about 30 minutes...imagine if he was actually good and there was a waiting room full of patients...parking would've been $10. ??

I had a very pleasant experience! Dr. Patolia is very warm and genial, as is his staff. The only problem with my visit was that I didn't realize that blood work would be done, which requires fasting the morning of theappointment. But I was able to just go back the next morning and get it done quickly.
