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.




The entire (cataract surgery) was excellent from the office staff to the hospital staff *Dr. Patel was wonderful!


*Dr. Patel is very considerate, answering questions, giving treatment options, etc.


I at first was concerned about the distance I had to travel but my experience with the staff here eased that quickly.


Very good.


All good.


*Dr. Patel was very efficient, very personable & friendly. She explained during each part of her examination what she was checking for and the result of her explanation. Her keyboarding and speed skills were amazing when she was typing up her notes.


1. *Michelle Patel.


Dr. Patel is outstanding! Her knowledge and professionalism made me confident of her capabilities to perform my eye surgery. She is impressive and I have recommended her to my family and friends.


Ver pleased


Good Service!


Dr Patel is always friendly, helpful, courteous, professional and respectful to me and my concerns. She is certainly a valuable asset to the practice.


Great doctor.


Dr. Patel is always prompt, caring and informative.


Very knowledgeable physician.


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.


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.






My visit was a very good experience.


i really enjoyed dr patel. felt very comfortable with helping me manage stephanies eye along with dr. bond


Professional, polite, courteous, and friendly visit. I was as impressed with the Doctor as I was impressed with the nurse. She explained things completely in an understandable way and even anticipated any questions I might have after reading my visit summary after leaving the clinic. Again, WELL DONE!


Dr Patel is THE BEST in her field, I would not be interested in seeing any other caregiver in her field. Have recommended her to several friends and family members. Two family members have seen her recently and are completely satisfied with her services and will be moving records to WFBH and become regular patients of Dr Patel.


I was very pleased w the results.


Dr. Patel doesn't take time to get to know you as a person, she is strictly professional, which leads you to think she doesn't have compassion for your situation. I'm sure she is knowledgeable, but making a personal connection with someone makes them feel important.


A experiences have been great.


good, she seems to be an excellent Dr.


Couldn't ask for a better Doctor. She was tops.


I'm not ,at all impressed with Dr. Patel
