Yes. Hello. Yeah. It was one of the best doctor visits I have ever had. I believe that it was very I trusted him. He looks like he cared about my well being and gave me great advice and listened to everything I had to stay. So I hadn't been to the doctor in a while and it definitely makes me more comfortable going back. So, thank you.

Yes, I thought Dr. Patel was very friendly, very nice, he listened to what I had to say, he did not seem to be judgmental in my accident, and part of the reason that it was, it happened. I will definitely see him again, Dr. Moultry has yet to return from her military duty, and if I need to see a physician, I will see him again. Thank you.

Hello. Yes, this is [PHI removed]. The only thing of it is, is yesterday, on Saturday, November 19th, I called the answering service. They were supposed to get a hold of a doctor, because the Lasix is causing dizziness very badly. And she said, the doctor would call me back and 30 minutes to an hour, but nobody called. That's the only thing. I had to stop my Lasix until I talked to Dr. Patel, because the Lasix is it starting, has caused me to be very, very dizzy. So that's all it, but otherwise, Dr. Patel is a very good doctor. And yes, I would recommend them to anyone, and I would like to come back and see him, but I also need to talk to him about my, the medication, the Lasix I'm taking, I can't take it because it makes me very

Doctor Patel is very professional and I liked that he asked me many questions related to my health, causes and future solutions. I have already changed 3 doctors and medical equipment and I felt satisfaction with their attention and speed. Very friendly office staff. I hope I am not disappointed. Thank you.

Dr. Sanatkumar Patel has been our primary care physician for approximately 20 years for my wife and I, and he has helped us tremendously by caring, he shows that he cares. Every time we see him, he's very... very accommodating and shows a great interest and always steers us... steers us the right way. Helps us to get specialists if and when we need them, and we have nothing but the best to say about Dr. Patel, and also is his... his physician's assistant, Dr. Luong. We wouldn't want to trade them for anyone else that we know, or don't know. Thank you.

I messaged Dr Patel regarding my covid positive test result and I needed a prescription for my cough. His office staff replied very quickly and then the Dr called me soon after that. Their quick reply showed me they are looking out for their patients.

I like to talk about PIH, not setting myself over to the doctor. So I have to go to make 2 trips to a dermatologist could be done in one trip. It's a joke, make you wait 2 different It's taken me 2 months to get something. Take it off late because of you guys. I'm getting in authorization to the doctor where I can do it the first trip. Let's do it right next time.
