"My wife and I have traveled extensively over forty years. We have had many doctors. Simply, none is better than Dr. Patel."

"Today I went to my first new patient appointment with Dr. Patel, that the office scheduled for me over the phone, and when I arrived, Amanda, the office girl, told me that I was not ascheduled for today, but that she could put for two weeks later. Just like that!! I asked her if this happened often and she just shrugged her shoulders. I haven't even seen the doctor yet, but I'm really disappointed at the carelessness and inefficiency of his office staff. "

"I have worked with doctors my entire life, and Dr Patel is, hands down, the best doctor you will ever have the opportunity to encounter. He actually listens to his patients, is exceptionally knowledgeable, and does not overmedicate right off the bat. His extensive world experience, coupled with his medical knowledge, all comes into play when he makes recommendations. He spends time with each of his patients, so don't expect to be rushed in and out. By the same token, give the same respect to his other patients...know that you are going to be there for a bit of time....he is worth every second! If you're looking for something to just write a script, go somewhere else. If you're looking for someone to tell you something you already figured out on WebMD, go somewhere else. He's not your guy. If you're looking for a great doctor, who will actually listen to you and help you on your journey to wellness, then you won't find a better doctor around."

"I called to set up an appointment and was told that before they could make an appointment I would have to drive to their office and pick up an information packet and fill it out and return it to them after which I could schedule an appointment. I asked the receptionist to email the packet ( I live 12 miles out) and she said she could not, I asked her to mail it and she said no again because it’s much too large. I asked what it could possibly contain that would make it too large to email or mail out and she said she was far too busy to explain it to me. So if they are too busy to talk to me now, that means they will be too busy to talk to me when I have questions later. Find a better facility!!"

"My first visit as a new patient was very good in every way. Subsequent interactions were absolutely awful! His staff continually messed up my prescription orders. On my second visit to the Doc (early morning appointment). I was the only one in the waiting room and was taken directly back to the exam room - where I sat for another hour and 40 minutes. It was only when I got up to leave that the doctor finally came in. He brusquely apologized and called me "hon" repeatedly. I am not a "happy camper"."

"The good doctor spent the majority of my first visit on talking about himself. The second visit didn't go much better. I told him the chronic issues I was having with diarrhea, extreme hair loss and extreme dry skin. He never examined my head or my skin, he simply said I should use coconut oil on my skin, like he does(as he proceeded to show me his skin)and a good shampoo without chemicals, on my hair...and as far as diarrhea...he said I didn't have diarrhea! I'm 74 years old. I know what diarrhea is, when you can barely make it to the bathroom 3-4 times, sometimes more, a day, that's diarrhea!! For the past 6 years I've used only good healthy shampoos and very little conditioner. I drink approximately 80 oz of water a day and slather an organic all natural body lotion all over. I'm very health conscious! Practically everything I buy to eat and use on my body is organic. He had me go for some lab work, I did. I waited and waited for the results but was not able to get on their patient ...
portal. I tried to call the office a number of times but no answer, just left messages. My calls to get help with the portal were ignored. I went by the office to pick up a copy of my lads to take to my cancer doctor in Tucson. The labs for my thyroid were a little higher than the normal high range. I called my insurance company to ask how I go about getting a different primary care provider and to get a referral, that I wanted to see an endocrinologists and a dermatologist. She ask me why I was switching and I told her the circumstances. She ask me to hold and she would see if she could reach the office. Miraculously she did. I told the receptionist what I wanted, a referral, she said I had to make an appointment in order for them to give me a referral. I made and kept the appointment. Dr Patel was icy cold and explained why he didn't contact me about the high thyroid levels. He went over the shampoo and coconut oil recommendations and gave me another lab order. I was dismissed without any referrals. My insurance called the Dr and spoke with him telling him that there had been a formal complaint. She said he was very arrogant in their conversation and she could understand my position. One month after the last appointment I've still not heard from him with a referral. The incompetence and lack of bedside manner is all to prevalent in the medical profession. Somehow these doctors feel threatened if for some reason you want a referral. They think they are the final word on your health! Not so, I know my body, and I know when something is wrong! "
