She was interested in my skin issues, rather than pushing cosmetic procedures on me . She also answered my questions about the approaches that I’ve heard other people speak about for a similar condition. Dr. Patel offered a practice clinical solution to my problem, rather than jumping to expensive and uncomfortable testing methods.

Everyone at the office was great. I received an email the day before with instructions on how to prepare for my appointment as well as specific directions to locate the office, which is a bit hard to find otherwise. The check-in process was really smooth and I didn't have to wait more than a minute or two to be brought in to the exam room. The doctor and her assistant were very helpful and efficient. They explained everything they were doing and why. She was even able to take a sample for a biopsy during my appointment which was great since I don't have to go back again. Highly recommend.

Long wait time and doctor doesn't allow to consult about more than one concern per visit. If you have 2 issues, they recommend you to come again and ask in next visit. Treatment is fair, but recommends taking small steps, which requires multiple visits as well.

Dr Patel seems very intelligent, and has a very pleasant personality. Support staff was also courteous and friendly. The only thing that was a negative was the long wait time. I reached there 20 minutes before my appointment, and got to see the doctor 25 minutes after my appointment time. Good thing is they came to get me exactly at my appointment time, but then kept me waiting for next 25 minutes! I believe wait is a wait, whether it is in the reception area or in the checkup room. I had to push one of my appointments because of the delay. Log wait time aside, everything else was fine with my visit. The medicines prescribed are a little on the expensive side and not covered by my insurance, but they were kind enough to give me a coupon that will hopefully reduce the cost a little bit. I will know more when I get to my pharmacy for pickup.

The front desk employees were polite and efficient. The waiting area was nice and I was seen by the doctor pretty quickly. Employees inside the patient area were very nice. I was playing a video game in the outside waiting area before being led into a room and the employee let me know that I had enough time to finish my game so I wasn't sitting doing nothing inside the patient room. Doctor and nurses were polite and patiently listened to and answered my questions. Overall, it was a great visit.

Dr. Patel and her staff are absolutely wonderful! The office is also beautiful - very calming and modern - not like the neon lit 80s style doctor's offices. I was terrified of getting my first body scan and mole removals/biopsies. Dr. Patel and her staff immediately made me feel comfortable and were very informative. I highly recommend them to anyone who needs a dermatologist. She is truly kind and caring and answered every question I had. I am no longer afraid to go in for my appointments!

So happy to have Dr. Patel! She is very good at what she does, and clearly very knowledgable on an array of topics. She is honest, caring and super funny! Haven't seen a dermatologist with better bedside manner. Appointment went super quick for my first time, the receptionists really know what they're doing especially with my insurance card, and I don't have to chase down the office for my prescriptions! So very happy. The office is professional and courteous. You can have a little trouble finding it but it is the revolving doors right next to minghin and mariano's. She is usually very booked and I think it is because she personally sees you herself. After moving from NY to Chicago, this is one of the best and most outstanding doctors I have seen in Chicago yet!

Dr. Patel was very thorough in explaining her observations and recommendations. She answered all of my questions thoroughly, even when it took some effort to help me understand the implications of various options. It was really valuable to see a real dermatologist about my skin, even though the problem is not very serious. Dr. Patel explained possible causes, none of which had been suggested by my primary care physician. She also explained options for further testing and diagnosis, and why it choosing the wrong treatment for the condition could actually worsen the problem. So now I have a much better understanding of options, what to watch for, when and how to take further action, and what to avoid.
