I think that Dr. Patel is a really good ENT doctor. He listens carefully, and explains things really well, and is very compassionate, and concerned. Thanks.

Yes, Dr. Patel is probably the best doctor I've actually dealt with concerning my daughter. He is very kind, very patient, very, you know, will.... willing to listen and answer any and all questions. He's very caring, very concerned with the well being of my daughter. Overall, he's, like I said, one of the best doctors I've ever encountered.
