5/30/2018

Dr. Patel was very competent, confident and compassionate. I was very favorably impressed with all aspects of treatment and care before, during and after my eye surgery.

4/30/2018

Dr Patel is very efficient and moves rapidly and confidently through the consultation.

4/28/2018

Dr Patel is excellent - she is very thorough. Does a great job of explaining everything and answering all my questions. Very competent!

4/23/2018

Dr. Patel gave me back my good eyesight...which I never expected could happen. It's a big deal for me and I will be grateful to her forever.

3/29/2018

Based on long waits and lack of apology or understanding I will probably seek another provider.

3/27/2018

The doctor seemed always rushed & talked very fast - but did a good job in restoring my sight after I experienced a swollen retina resulting from cataract surgery.

3/27/2018

Not sure adequate relationship was made with this first visit--at least not optimal. One huge problem is that the physician, PA, Assistant, etc., spends more time on the computer than in eye-to-eye communication. This detracts from the entire experience, including building trust. I worked in health administration over 30 years. The devolution of health care continues despite good intentions by the front lines. The economics of health care takes priority. Patients too often feel like a tiny cog in a machine. That's how I felt 3/19/18.

3/11/2018

As stated, Dr. Patel is my eye doctor. Both my husband & myself see her on a yearly basis. He sometimes sees her more often, due to his medication regime and his diabetes issues.

3/10/2018

She talks very fast and felt like she was rushed

3/8/2018

glad we were referred to Dr Patel. Recommend to all

2/19/2018

Dr. Patel is a refreshing delight in my medical care!

2/19/2018

Dr. Patel is caring and spends time with you. She has always answered my questions and talked about all my concerns.

2/13/2018

Was not a bad doctor at all, just wasn't quite as friendly as I hoped

2/7/2018

Was routine visit - provider asked - answered requested information, was professional - but not especially personal.

2/7/2018

Very efficient and informative visit.

1/21/2018

Dr Patel was rude and disrespectful. This was my first visit to Dr. Patel. She did not introduce herself, make eye contact or communicate with me. She was abrupt and arrogant. I will be finding a new provider.

1/11/2018

I felt like I received the provider's complete attention during my visit and all my concerns were addressed.

1/9/2018

Was happy with Dr. Patel.

1/3/2018

Dr Patel is the most thorough, professional, dedicated and caring physician, along with Dr Greven, I have encountered at WFBH. I am so confident in the team that looks after my eyes issues that I would follow them to another facility if they elected to move on to other locations.

12/12/2017

What she lacks in charm she makes up for in honesty, apparent professional competence, and genuine interest in doing what is medically best for you, the patient, not just in the clinics making money.

12/4/2017

Excellent in all ways!

11/19/2017

very good

11/6/2017

DR. PATEL IS WONDERFUL!

11/6/2017

no help and i am going blind----no concern

10/30/2017

Dr Patel is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient. I will continue with her and I'm completely satisfied.

10/10/2017

good

10/9/2017

Dr. Patel is excellent! Very knowledgeable about her field. I have every confidence in her opinion and her work.

9/26/2017

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.

8/23/2017

*Dr. Michelle Patel is the best ophthalmologist I've gone to in my 72 years!!! I travel from Statesville, NC jut to see her.

8/1/2017

Excellent all way through!

7/29/2017

great

7/25/2017

Dr Patel was very direct and informative. She is very confident with her skills and walked Nancy thru the various choices and decision needed.

7/19/2017

I felt Dr. Patel went out of her way to help me. Thank you!
