I was sent to the lab to get blood work done right after my consultation and I had wait an hour and fifteen minutes because the technician went to lunch.

Happy for Dr. V. Patel retirement, he has been very patient, polite and respectful. Not very many like him left. Thank you Dr. Patel!

Doctor was rude. He interrupted EVERYTIME I spoke and wouldn't let me finish. He wanted to medicate me and be done with me. In the end, he didn't even help. He just set up another appointment. I'm going to be billed for the doctor setting up an appointment. That's just great.

He is very caring and patient.

Oh, you know me, (PHI removed), for the doctor's care, there's not enough time for me to say how extremely, shall I say competent, I know he is. I have a very expansive knowledge of judging people and supporting our United States government as a contractor for US aircraft and then going, and I made sure I made a prominent and successful career out of myself. They told me I wasn't going to be a rich, but I'd be comfortable and I sure am with his help, the doctor's, and he is the most efficient and due diligence he has in his back pocket. In his chest, he wears it and I love him so much. Bye.

If it wasn't for Dr patel I would not known I had cancer I praise him for sending to get chest exams thank you Dr patel so very much.
February 08, 2022
The front desk staff is not very pleasant. I was sent to do an x ray without first taking a pregnancy test, to their negligence. Nobody showed me where the x ray room is located which resulted in me wasting A LOT of time sitting in the wrong waiting area. New patients should be escorted properly.
February 07, 2022
This was a phone appointment, so the question about office staff has no meaning.
January 26, 2022

I haven't received a call-back regarding my request to see an audiologist. This not an emergency, but I am eager to learn whether or not I need hearing aids. Dr. Vinod Patel was very courteous and didn't hesitate to listen to my request.

Dr. Patel is an excellent physician and is very knowledgeable. I am very happy that he is my doctor.
December 15, 2021
I had a good experience. I would have liked to spend more time with the doctor to go over some other issues that I wanted to talk about. So I felt a little bit rushed. Getting an appointment was very easy. Finding the place was not so easy, but getting an appointment was easy, which is very good. Would also like to get some more tests, like a urinalysis done. But overall the experience was good, just would have liked to spend some more time with the doctor. Thank you.
December 09, 2021
Nothing to do with you guys. It's just that I feel like should have stayed in the hospital a couple more days longer. I'm having problems traveling around. Just don't want to do anything. Okay, that's it... and I don't know which medications to take the way they should be taken.
