First time with *Dr.Patel, but I liked him.
*Dr. Patel seem like the most competent, friendly & knowledgeable ortho spine dr. I've ever dealt with - excellent!
*Dr. Patel was both professional & friendly - exam & imaging were thorough & diagnosis & tx plan explained in easily understandable terms - all my questions were answered completely.
He made several recommendations for different medications to discuss with my neurologists, labs to obtain, and MRI. He was extremely knowledgable.
Very compassionate & caring/personnel.
he actually listened to me and looked at me instead of the computer.very impressed.
Dr. Patel is an excellent physician. He is very congenial and explained very well the situation with my back issues.
All good -
The doctor just seem to be in just a little bit of a hurry. Otherwise all was good.
Dr. Patel is excellent and has been very attentive to my back issue. I appreciate his approach to these issues and highly recommend him. I also love the fact that I can use wake health.com to conmmunicate with him and the nurses and to see my medical history and appointments.
All very good -
*Dr. Patel has outstanding bedside manner. #5. Routine after care.
Very kind well informed provider.Glad i was seen by him
My total experience from beginning to end was excellent. Dr. Patel was very thorough and compassionate, and the support staff was helpful and friendly.
positive impression immediately. came in room empty handed, no laptop computer to distract his attention. very refreshing to speak to the Doctor's face instead of the top of his head because he is bent over typing on the laptop. also Dr. Patel had taken the time to review my MRI prior to my appointment. One of the best appointments I have had in a while.
