very happy with the overall Experience
Comments on the internet did not come close to how great Dr Patel was. Not sure why they werent as good, but he was outstanding. Listened, explained things well, showed me mri pictures, read report one item at time and never felt rushed or he was onto next patient while with me.
The whole visit was very rushed. Everything was explained hurriedly, but professionally. Wish it had been done in a relaxed manor.
I wish I would be treated by another doctor of mine as well as I was treated here.
Best care for my back that I've had since my initial surgery 40 years ago. I received more answers about my issues than I have EVER!
I was very happy with my care.
I thought Dr Patel was excellent. He answered all my questions. I did not feel at all rushed.
Everyone very helpful and nice. Would go here again. Nicer than most places I have been for medical purposes!
Would use and recommend
Doctor reviewed info very quickly, did not give any instructions for follow up and exercises. No prognosis given for my treatment.
After my first visit I have recommended two people with serious spinal concerns to visit Dr Patel
Extremely efficient; altogether excellent patient experience -
A bit disappointed in the lack of definitive diagnosis.
Dr. Patel listens to my questions and addresses them. He's straightforward and to the point, but not in a rude way. He is the first Dr. to find out what is wrong with me, just by taking one simple x-ray. I have been to many Dr's that would speed through the appointment, not listening to me, and offer a prescription or a referral. Dr. Patel has my trust and I am confident he's going to make my back better from a fusion.
I felt very comfortable with Dr. C. Patel. He listened to my concerns and knew how fearful I was about back surgery. He gave me a course of treatment I can follow with epidurals and then slowly weaning myself off anti-inflammatory drugs. Surgery is the last course of action. He said it does not matter how bad the MRI looks, it is my pain level and how I feel. He will my surgeon, if surgery is required.
Dr. Patel is a good listener and provided useful information about where I can get help with my medical problems.
Dr. Patel was thorough in his examination and explanation of findings.
Dr Patel is a real person. explanation is he made you feel like he was your neighbor and friend, not like he was some God unreachable on a pedestal. Very refreshing to have such a warm and caring Dr. He's great!
Dr Patel got quickly to the crux of the matter and I was confident in his analysis and clear explanations. He took me to the very point where all that was required was for me to make a decision. I have every confidence in him.
Great experience. I highly recommend Dr. Patel. I already have.
Because there was no issue visible in the xrays, I did not feel I received a good enough understanding of what was actually was causing the pain.
Dr. Patel only diagnosed my problem and then referred my to yet another Dr. within the same practice and was not able to get the appointment for over 30 days. Frustrating.
# 9 & 10 while he was very pleasant - he really left me feeling "flat". He did not appear in entering in any discussion.
I already have recommended the office to friends
very nice individual
Dr was very friendly; Follow up instructions were a little vague
will recommend to others without hesitation
Dr. Patel was awesome! The thing that worried me about going to him was that he might pressure me into have surgery, because that is what he does. NOT at all, in fact, he told me I was not a good candidate for it and that he felt I was on the right track with my plan. I would totally trust him, as he is very kind, understanding and knowledgeable.
Dr. Patel is a wonderful doctor, caring and helpful
Dr Patel, while pleasant, was vague about the reason why my back intermittently hurts. He was also vague about why physical therapy was being prescribed for me.
