Dr. Patel and his staff were not only professional and knowledgeable, but they were extremely patient and kind! We left there wishing every practice and place of business was represented in this way.

The provider listened to everything that I had concerns of, was very patient, even when my 2 year old that had to come to the appointment was being a little interruptive, was so kind and so compassionate, I haven't honestly had a doctor in a very long time that I could tell genuinely cared about why I was there and it was amazing. I'm super excited that I have a doctor like that to install my daughter's tubes soon and I will definitely be recommending him.

Every staff member we came in contact with was very professional, courteous and most importantly made our daughter feel more comfortable with the visit. We had a very nice visit!
