He explained things well, so my child could understand and so I could understand.

He is very thorough in explaining anything that you asked and he doesn't want to like rush out of the room quickly like he stays and answers all of your questions. I'm very happy with him.

Dr. Patel is such a great Dr for my son. He's very understanding and will talk as long as you need. I never feel rushed with him, he explains things thoroughly and you can tell he's truly compassionate about his patients. My son had a surgery with Dr. Patel and I read some information online and in a Facebook group with similar stories, I was so hesitant to continue with it after reading negative feedback from others parents all over the state. He personally called me and explained how the procedure was done and assured me my son was in great hands. The surgery went fantastic and I can't think him and his team for their outstanding work. Everyone needs a Dr like him!!
