Not that all other doctors I had been visited weren't very good, however, Dr Shanker Patel is an exception. She helped me lower my A1C from 12.7 to 5.8 in mere three months(between two visits) She read my messages on my chart and replied immediately with utter encouragement. I feel lucky and happy that she is my doctor!

I am so pleased with Dr. Shanker-Patel. Always is attentive, informative, empathetic & extremely knowledgeable. I have been dealing with a health issue for approx. 17 months & doctor has taken all measures to try & find out what/where these issues are coming from. We did the appropriate testing as well as Dr. Shanker- Patel suggesting certain at home remedies, lifestyle changes, etc. I have been feeling much better & can appreciate a physician who wants to locate the issue & not just pass the patient along with medication suggestions. Dr. is always on time, professional, approachable. Very Happy patient !

I must tell you that, during my last visit with Dr. Shanker-Patel, I could not ask for a better physician to transition to my previous doctor left the practice. Dr. Patel treated me with the utmost respect and provided me with every available educational perspective on my current health care needs. She spent time with me, and in today's medical culture, I am not sure patients have the privilege of letting you know that this was our reality. The value of the time with me is, to this 60 year old patient, an invaluable one and I could not thank Dr. Patel enough for her graciousness and superior expertise as my new physician. At 60, I have medical challenges but I did not feel that they are insurmountable because of Dr. Patel's gentleness with me as a patient. Thank you!

I have already recommended Dr. Shanker-Patel. I feel that she listened to me. She related to my problem by sharing one of her own which really helped me understand that I was not the only one. I appreciate the fact that she did not just give me the medication I was requesting, and she explained to me why taking that medication would not solve all the problems I wanted to solve. I really enjoyed my visit with Dr. Shanker-Patel.

Dr. Shanker-Patel went out of her way to let me know that she is always available to her patients. She informed me that if I need an appointment to have the staff message her and she will get me in as soon as possible. I was very impressed by the time and effort she took to get to know me as a person and not just as a patient.
