It was hard for me to choose a primary care doctor after my long-term PCP had retired. Over the years I have built a report of mutual respect and trust . I was looking for someone that I could trust and feel comfortable with. Dr. Patel came highly recommended by a staff member as I told him what I was looking for in a new primary care doctor Dr. Patel treats me with respect, he listens to my opinions and concerns …he encourages me to ask questions and explain things in a way that I understand. Even though I know that there are time parameters around each patient encounter, I never feel rushed through my visit with Dr. Patel. He answers questions properly whether in person through telemedicine or via the patient portal. He always follows up even when I forget and no health concern I present is minimized. Great doctor!
