Dr. Patel was very friendly and professional. I felt comfortable right away, and the people at the front desk were great. The only problem was that the history that I filled out online was not sent to the doctor when Imade the appointment. We had to wait for it to be sent.

Doctor seemed to be rushing. He was very quick to judge and make assumptions without hearing my medical history. He was already writing prescriptions and test referrals while I was still explaining symptoms. He had one foot out the door while I was still asking questions.
