Dayton Survey

I owe a huge thank you to Dr. Patel for finding out the reason why my daughter couldn't breathe well. He was very professional and very informative. I told my entire family how great my experience was, we all cried tears of joy when we learned that my daughter could be helped. I am now really excited, and ready to begin taking all the steps to give my daughter a better quality of life. Thank you Dr. Patel you are doing wonderful things for people.
