Dr Patel and her staff at Davie Medical Center provide the most comfortable atmosphere, are exceptionally helpful and friendly, very professional in all aspects of care.

8/31/2017

My experiences with physicians at Wake Forest have been so exceptional that to encounter this provider who was efficient however not very personable was disappointing. I would not recommend her strictly because of her personality. I will continue to see her as my physician because I believe she is an excellent opthamalogist.

Dr Patel is the consummate professional. She is meticulous and complete in her exams, willing to discuss in detail any concerns one might have relative to condition and care. I have complete confidence in her ability and dedication to her profession and believe she has great and sincere concern for my health and care. I would only see another eye professional on her recommendation.

Dr. Patel is always prompt, caring and informative.

2/8/2017

Very knowledgeable physician.

1/25/2017

I always have a good rapport with any physician that I visit, but not this time. Dr. Patel was so non-communicative that it bordered on rudeness. She didn't even ask me if I was experiencing any problems with my vision. I don't remember that she ever even looked at me while she was speaking, which also very limited. I felt like I was being rushed through the checkout line at Walmart and the clerk was having a very bad day. I don't know what the rush was since we were seen 15 minutes before my appointment time and there was only one other person in the waiting area. My wife and I are both WFBH employees and she was with me during the visit. We were both amazed by the manners or lack thereof, of Dr. Patel. I won't be returning and will recommend that others seek out another ophthalmologist for their eye care.

1/24/2017

Dr. Patel was very thorough and personable. She sent us home with extremely detailed instructions. She completed chart notes and letters to the doctors who had referred us, while still in the room. I believe that this leads to less errors and/or accidental omissions in the documentation. It was a pleasure working with Dr. Patel & Megan.

12/20/2016

9. EXCELLENT.
