Condition unresolved. $35 specialist copay just to get rx for inhaler refilled. Disappointing.

Yes, the staff on entering the office Building was very helpful. And with filling out the electronic part of it. I'm not used to it. The doctor herself. Very professional, very caring. I appreciate the time she took with me and explain things and answered all my questions and that's very rare nowadays. If you had a Compassion or my concerns and answer them in a very professional and caring way, and her staff was also very good.

Ok, this has nothing to do with Dr Patel. I noticed my O2 provider (name removed) was not billing medicare since the beginning of the year, I called them and they told me medicare needed recertification on the medical necessity and they faxed the form over to (name removed) office Jan 27th. I called and (name removed) office said that they needed to see me first. When was someone going to reach out and tell me this? Now I don't know if medicare is going to deny payment for the last 5 months because they didn't get recertification I didn't now about. The communication between (name removed) and Dr Patel's office has always been bad but someone from the Doctor's office should have called me.

I feel I am in good hands with Dr. Patel. She has a good side manner and she listens to you.

It's always hard to convey everything that you want a doctor to know, about your condition. Most doctors cut you off, before your halfway done explaining your concerns, to them. Dr. Patel patiently let me talk, without interrupting me once. She addressed all of my concerns. I wish that all doctors were just like her.

I met last September and staff ordered new cpac machine. I called office in January and again in February, March I called exchange and office would not take call. Made appt and staff after sitting in office 30 min said I didn't need to see doctor..I said I waited I want to see doctor. Doctor came In "with attitude. Not a good visit. They said they would put in request for machine. I received call today and I'm on a list to get machine. I was never ordered in September a machine. Staff is the worse!!! Every doctor I see, I can call exchange ask to speak to office and they will put me through or call back. This office is the worst! And has always been even before pandemic. Sorry I cannot say anything positive about staff.

Dr. Patel is very polite and knowledgeable. I think that she was a little surprised when asked if my mom had been vaccinated and received her booster. Yes, she's been vaccinated, but will not be given the booster.I did not share this, but Her second vaccince she ended up with a 103 temp. for two days. Not willing to risk that again. We would most definitley see Dr. Patel again.

Wasn't able to make my three month follow up ordered by the doctor. Her staff informed me that she didn't have any openings in three months and to call in two weeks to see if there are any openings.Not good don't feel I should have to call in a few weeks to try to get an appointment. I have been a patient there for many years.

Well, they were not sure why I was there. I informed them that I called 2 days earlier asking why I need this appt., they said a follow-up. Dr. Patel did not have much to say different than what I already know. It seems she did not read about my case until she arrived in the room, and just asked questions, and said she'll see me in a few months. This visit was unnecessary and should have been a virtual visit (waste of time and money) Read my full chart and study the analysis. I am starting to question what is going on with PIH and their physicians?

Dr. Patel is a wonderful doctor! I am so happy she is my pulmonologist! She explains/explained my diagnosis thoroughly and answered/answers my concerns! No complaints! The staff are great, respectful and easy to talk! My personal shout out to [name removed], she is great specially helping me with my recalled CPAP machine! She didn't have to do that but she did! Love PIH! No complaints! Please keep up the wonderful work!
