This was my first visit with Dr. Patel and I only needed a well visit, however Dr. Patel was very thorough and spent a lot of time asking me questions about my overall health. Her bedside manner and concern for you as a patient seems genuine and although she did not rush the appointment, she was very efficient. I highly recommend Dr. Patel as a PCP!

as always, I had a wait time of less then 5 minutes, her staff was efficient and caring, and most of all, she took all the time needed. She explained things clearly and knows her stuff. If you are looking for a Dr, you could not do better than Dr. Patel. I work in public health and see the good and the bad...she is tops on the good list. Patricia P.

Sadly this appointment has been cancelled days before, as the intention that suggested this appointment was of no concern to follow through. But all in all Doctor V. Patel, is a very good Physician, as I hope to see here in the New Year. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to her and her staff.

It was my first visit with her as my new primary care doctor. Now, I'm what many would say is in very good health and I watch what I eat and get regular exercise. I felt that Dr. Patel dealt with me with that in mind. Based on what she saw in my vitals and from conversation she didn't feel I was a patient that she would be worried about. I say all this to express my feeling that on one hand she didn't spend enough time in a thorough check-up, but on the other hand she didn't really need to because I am pretty healthy. So, just feeling a little unreasonably dissatisfied. But what more could she have done? Next time I'm going to make an appointment with the psychiatrist because obviously something is mentally wrong with me.

The doctor was okay. The best Doctor at this practice was Doreen Mensah but she is no longer there. I went to get a doctors note and the front desk was closed I was told by one of the workers who was near the front desk that they close at 5:00 pm and I left around 5:20pm I find that a bit unprofessional but whatever . I felt the doctor wanted to rush out since I was her last patient. I will try her again. Everyone deserves a second
