Dr Patel is AMAZING!! He takes his time and doesn’t rush through the appointment. He takes time wiry my daughter and I really appreciate that. He actually looks at not only his part of my daughter’s care, but takes the time to look at visits with other specialists and testing so that he can get the whole picture. I wish all doctors were this thorough!!
