The front office staff need to work on professionalism. One of the receptionists was loud about patient's insurance information,and she made the patients feel embarrassed about the information. They need to work on how to be discreet.

We not had to wait a total of 15 minutes in order to check in, have the nurse record basic vitals, and have the doctor come in the room. Good, efficient work with an accurate diagnosis. Prescribed medicine and gave additional information to ease symptoms. Very satisfied with my visit.

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 the medicine.(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 and since 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 work out 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 hold and 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 staff are 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 the doctor, 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 me with to another room without the test tube to another room.
