Patient reviews for Dr. Viralkumar Patel
Honest opinion from considerate doctor
Dr. Patel was great- I really liked his personality and he diagnosed me quickly.
Dr. Patel did an awesome job! He diagnosed my issues and gave his recommendations for pain treatment. The therapy area may need work tho. For the deposit paid for that splint I could’ve gone to Walmart or Walgreens. ???????
Visit went great everything went smooth the doctor was very professional, the office staff even made me laugh so my nervousness went right out the window.
Dr. Patel is a very professional person, thank you for providing outstanding treatment.
Very good. I learned what my problem was.
Very caring and took the time to assess and explain my issue. You can tell he cares.
Very professional and personable!
The doctor was professional and his staff was cordial
Dr. Patel has an excellent rapport with the patients. He really listens to his patients and cares about trying to help eliminate their pain. You can't go wrong with Dr. Patel!
Really nice and courteous. A doctor and personnel with a human side.
My wife and I were there for an initial consult. Their staff was very respectful, knowledgeable, and helpful. Dr. Patel and the nurses were thorough and honest in there evaluation, plan of action, and possible outcomes. I will follow up with another review after my surgery
Typing with only one hand is tough, so in brief, they were all terrific! I would not hope to see them myself after I'm well again, but will refer anyone who's in need of their care. Super awesome - five shiny stars!!
Very disappointed. No concern or compassion shown by doctor and/or staff members.
My appt was at 11:30, I was seen PRIOR to my appt. Checkin, X-ray, analysis, injection and home within 1 hour. Amazing!
He was very pleasant and informative. He was very fast, in & out of room quickly, so I had to ask questions right away or he was gone.
Very nice doctor, he was in no hurry and took time to explain everything to me.
Friendly, professional staff & the office is clean and organized.
He was very professional and personal, and the satff was great as well. Ralph S
Very pleasant and down to earth. I was very comfortable
Great Doctor. Very professional.
Had some minor miscommunication with my paperwork, but the receptionists figured it out quickly and things went smoothly. Service was good, the young ladies were friendly and all smiles. Dr. Patel has seen me twice now. Got the cortisone shot and walked out to my vehicle and the pain subsided within 5 min. It's sore now, but last time it took about three days to feel no pain. I hope I don't have to do this often. I'm not afraid of the needles. I'm afraid of this medicine having long term affects as I've read online. But the service is very good at this place. The staff is friendly and sweet and the Dr. is cool! If you have joint issues, I recommend this place. Tommy E.
Spotted my problem right away and fixed it. Also referred me to a great speclist. Thanks
If needed I would go back
Dr. Patel was very thorough in explaining my treatment options. He and the support staff were all very pleasant and made me feel quite comfortable.
I didn't appreciate how Dr. Patel office handled me with the payments for the office visits. They weren't professional when it came to communicating when the payments were due. They didn't inform me that you have to pay when you arrive and they discussed payments in front at the desk without any privacy because everyone in the waiting room can hear you. They came up with bogus payments that I needed to pay even after I had paid them every time I went to them. The treatment process didn't help. I think this doctor is only out to get your money and that he doesn't really care about the patients. I WOULD NEVER recommend this doctor and I will NEVER go back to him ever again.
Professional assessment and clearly outlined plan of care.
My office visit was great at Dr. Patel's office! It started off with a very friendly Tracy at the front desk. I didn't have to wait long at all before she took me back for x-rays, then Dr. Patel came to talk to me and assess my condition. He was attentive and seemed to really care about solving the problems with my hands. He didn't rush me out of the room.
He knew exactly where my wrist was hurting and wanted to follow up!
He was professional and explained the procedure I need in great detail.
Great Doc! He explained everything. This will be my second procedure he has performed. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Patel was very patient and informative. It made the process easy and the hand pain has gone away.
I really liked both doctors!
Will go again
Professional, methodicel. My impression is very favorable. Strikes me as a no nonsence pro.
