Dr. Patel and his team are excellent! They truly care about their patients and make sure they are comfortable with throughout the entire process. I have never had a doctor make me feel heard and that took the time to make sure I understood everything. There aren't enough kind words for me to say about Dr. Patel and his team.

I was called back and seen so quickly I didn't have time to finish the patient questionnaire (which I count as a good thing, as everything on the forms were covered during the consultation anyway)
