Alpesh is obviously busy, but I did not feel rushed. He uses his PA or resident to get the basic data and talking points, then takes whatever time is needed to go over everything with me. I come with several technical questions, and he always makes sure these are answered. He does not get impatient with my iPad list!

Great experience so far with both Dr. Patel's PA and Dr Patel. I have been chasing a spine - chronic pain issue for a while. Dr Patel's hands on and investigative approach is a breathe of fresh air. So far, experience has warranted me to change my care from a prior spinal group that I have been working with for a decade. Great work.

Dr. Patel always sits down to talk with me and makes eye contact so I feel like I have his full attention. He probably isn't in the room for more than a few minutes but he makes you feel you are important and always asks if you have any questions for him.
