I got my test results the next day and I was upset and scared. I called the office and left a message with questions, I have NEVER had a doctor call me back, it was always a nurse or an assistant, not only did Dr. Patel call me back he spent a great deal of time with me to ensure that everything was going to be fine, I was on the ledge and he got me off of it. He listened, he was compassionate, everything a physician should be, but in my experience with others, not what occurs. I would give Dr. Patel a score of 100 if I could.

Doctor Patel was very engaging and answered all of our questions. My wife [ ]and I felt that as I head into this prostate operation, he has a strong command of the task and gave me a good feel for the expected outcome. Also was pleased that he gave us the time we needed to cover all of the issues. Unlike some of the specialists we have met with in the past, we did not feel rushed or time-limited. That was a very big plus in engaging with Dr. Patel. He gave us the time we needed to understand my upcoming procedure.
