I came in for a rash. I had the shingles virus and the provider didn't even ask to see it or where it's located, the provider pretty much just prescribed Benadryl. That's pretty much it. Thank you.

I felt that the Dr. Was not very sensitive to my situation and that he didn't offer alternatives for my anxiety. I also expressed I would like to get seen by a chiropractor for my neck pains and he brushed it off did not offer a way to deal with it other than ibuprofen. He did not even tell me if it would be possible to get referred. He did explain to me that I have a certain condition called tmj but he did not go into seeing other doctors for it. His solution was manage my anxiety, which did not solve the physical problem part for me.

I think everything was done fine. It's just that I don't know if it's just a pandemic that in a wellness wellness treatment I didn't get test or treatment that I had expected. And I think it's mainly because of the pandemic, there are no hands on type of bug treatment. Thank you.

January 13, 2022
i probably spoke to Dr. Patel about too many things at once. My main concern was addressed and we spent some time discussing it. I had mentioned another concern but i think he forgot about it. If it continues to bother me i will either make an appointment to see him again or another doctor. I find Dr. Patel to be very thorough in my treatment in most cases and i wouldn't change for anyone else.

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

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 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.
