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.
was very helpful. I get overwhelmed talking to doctors but he was kind
liked and respected his advice and knowledge very much.. would definitely recommend him to other people.. very comfortable talking to him about problems
very courteous and caring about my problem.
Dr. Patel was excellent. He was able to alleviate my concerns about my spine issues.
Dr Patel was awesome!
I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS DOCTOR
On another visit he took more time to explain - On this visit doctor seemed rushed and I did not have enough time to process what he said to make an informed decision.
I believe Dr. Patel's ability is great. However, the amount of time spend is poor. and feeling like he is trying to get out of the room quickly while you're asking questions. I'm sure he sees a ton of patients each day which is why he's in a hurry. It's good and bad seeing so many patients. Good because the ease of getting in quickly is better. But bad because the appointment is over quickly with Dr. Patel. His bedside manner was very good-just very quick.
I have already recommended him to other potential patients.
*Dr. Patel was very caring, a GOOD listener; a model to which other doctors should strive to be.
*Dr. Patel was very good about setting me up with other test.
Referral to physical therapy helped a great deal.
I totally understand that physicians don't have time to sit and chat -- but I felt we were a bit rushed when we actually saw the physician. He did not seem to take into consideration that an elderly person cannot make quick comments or decisions.
My experience with Florida Hospital DR. Patel and his team of dedicated staff has always been exceptional
really a good experience all around
Dr. Patel is awesome! I always recommend him!
Highly recommend!! A Spirit of Excellence with concern overall!!
