Dr. Patel was helpful. She answered all of my questions and gave me many things to think about. About the office: The receptionist asked me private questions in the waiting room with another patient within earshot. The lab technicians were dismal,tons of overly personal conversations with no regard for professionalism whatsoever. The nurse that did my preliminary work up was very kind and professional. All in all, Dr. Patel is fabulous and I am happy that she is my new gyn.

The wait time was about 15 min. I did a zocdoc online check-in but none of the data seems to have traveled over into the doc's systems as I had to answer the questions again. My visit was pretty standard. Dr.Patel answered all my questions, however when it came to explaining a potential surgical procedure I may need to get, she went over it pretty quickly and was a little too technical. I guess I was missing the "human" touch.

I cannot recommend Dr. Patel highly enough! I've had some long standing medical issues that I'd come to believe were the new norm for me. Dr. Patel is the first doctor I've ever had who has been determined to get tothe root of these problems. Being a first-time patient, I had a long list of concerns and family history to catch her up on. She took the time to thoroughly address everything, and establish a plan of action with me. Due to moves, I have seen three different doctors in the past three years. None have been as knowledgable, informative, or as committed to results as Dr. Patel. So grateful that I'm making progress, and that my issues weren't overlooked for another year.

I thoght Dr. Patel was great! The appointment was quick but she answered all my questions thoroughly. My appointment was at 3 and I got there 15 minutes early but was only seen around 3:40 so the wait was long butI would definitely go back. Parking was easy and they validate it at the end so I was a happy camper.

It was a good experience for someone who has a major phobia with Drs. The visit was quick (I was in and out in under an hour), and Dr. Patel gave me some great pointers for my general wellness, answered myquestions, and asked me questions to get a better understanding of my health. Would definitely recommend Dr. Patel to my friends/family.

She was AWESOME! I loved her, she went above and beyond for me. I told her I was depressed and struggling with some things. Not only did she talk to me about my psych evaluation we have to submit, but shewas genuinely concerned and referred me to a therapist that works with her clinic. She is so sweet and caring, it's nice knowing how much she cares about her patients.

Dr. Patel was mild-mannered and efficient, took my comments about the filthy office well, said she would alert someone to the problem. When she told me I should be taking a calcium supplement, I asked her why. Then she commented that I should also wear my seatbelt. Thanks, doc.

Dr. Patel herself was great, but her office staff weren't exactly helpful. This was my first visit for a pretty sensitive issue, and not only did they have me discuss the problem in a room with the door open, but alsohad me prep for an exam (i.e. sit in one of those awful paper gowns) and wait for over 20 minutes when I didn't need to - which tells me they weren't actually pay attention to what I said in the first place.

I liked Dr. Patel, and will see what it is like with her as my OBGYN. She was very personable and I felt like I could trust her. She really wants to get to know the whole picture before treating you.The only critique is the wait was a bit long and if you have Aetna insurance, they can't perform certain tests on you at their office-you have to go to an outside lab. This is not really their office's fault, but it's important to do all the research on this. I think I will keep her as my OBGYN for now.

The doc was very nice and responsive to all of my questions. She works at a hospital and sometimes she gets called down for a procedure, which is what happened today. She had scheduled her day so this wouldn't happen butif the patient or hospital aren't there/ready it messes with her schedule. The first thing she did upon meeting me was apologize profusely for my wait and she thanked me for my patience. She gave me information about different BC options, which was one of the reasons I was seeing her. It was a very positive experience on the whole.

I really liked Dr Patel! She really took the time to explain and talk to me about all my options when it came to birth control and was really focused on finding the right one for me. I've been to doctorsthat are dismissive of my concerns or really push one sort of BC but she really listened to what I said we arrived together on the best option for me! She's awesome and very supportive!
