What My Patients Say

Dr. Patel was very kind and very knowledgeable. He had read my medical history and was prepared on how to treat my symptoms. I was very impressed with him. - SN

Dr. Patel has had to treat my son twice -- once for an emergency and once scheduled. He is very calming, reassuring, and supportive to the child and the parent. He has gone out of his way to explain to the child what is happening and what he is going to do. It really puts the child in a more relaxed state prior to a procedure. - TL

Very impressed with the care given to my daughter before, during, and after her ear tube surgery. The unpretentious attitude of Dr. Patel was very refreshing. Special praise for Nurse Stacey: She made me feel like my daughter was the only patient she was concerned about. - PM
