Very caring and supportive. Dr Patel is an excellent doctor and will patiently answer all questions and listen to all concerns. Isabella, Physician Assistant, in pre-Op, is very thorough snd responsive.
Dr. Alpesh A. Patel has a conservative approach to sciatica pain resolution. He told me the options I had for my condition right now and also options for further treatment if necessary. He made me comfortable when he told me to call him if a flare-up occurs and when he told me that he wants to hear from me in one month as to my condition status.
Dr. Patel is patient and poses questions that lead to understanding of the issues I have. He treats me like a valued individual. I am confident in his ability to not only to guide me through this debilitating condition, but to do surgery if and when it is necessary. He listens and does not rush through. His PA's and interns are also extremely attentive, patient and professional. Could not be happier.
Highly skilled Doctor Alpesh Patel. Very comforting. Excellent at discussing surgery with patient and family members pre operation and post operation. After his skilled hands did their thing the pain is all gone. That is why we selected him.His support team is great and extremely helpful. Hospital is well organized.
I have been an orthopedic patient at NW for 30 years. After the passing of Dr. Michael Schafer, I was referred to Dr. Alpesh Patel. I met him on my first visit last week for my severe stenosis. He and his staff were very compassionate, thorough, and detailed.
The nurses and the staff were very nice and took time to listen to you. Now on the other hand my doctor Patel was great. And gave me some very good news. As far as I'm concerned that he would not recommend surgery as he thinks I would be in more pain than I am now. And I'm going to just have to more or less live with the pain . If I would have gotten some other doctor that didn't give a s*** about their patients I'd be having surgery and would be in a hell of a lot more pain. So doc all I can tell you is thank you very much for being truthful with me I really do appreciate it. Thank you everyone Steven MaGuire. Thank you Dr Andrew Patel
Super professional setup that holds privacy key. Love the P#### vs calling and broadcasting the person's name. Additionally, Dr. Patel was incredible! I finally found a dr that saw me as a human and not a #. He took the time to actually investigate the problem and see it is more than just the back and there is most likely a bigger issue at play. I cannot express my gratitude more fully for this.
Easy to talk to, knowledgeable, always asks if I have any questions, talks to me vs at me, excellent bedside manner, always advises to reach out if I need anything, I can't say enough great things! 10"10 every time!
He is kind, professional and takes the conservative approach to your ailment. Explains his reasons for how to treat and has always been correct. He also makes himself accessible to you with your questions about treatment and how to reach him when you are not in chicago and a problem arises.
Excellent staff and personal attention given - full explanation of what is happening and options of what can be done and recommendations for both short term and long term testing and treatment -- all very well set out with followup. -- You would tink that you are the Doctor's only patient because of the attention given with the awareness"review of records by Doctor Patel and (all) of his staff. All were aware of why I was there and the direction of recommended treatment.
Dr. Patel is very thorough he Ensures that the client is getting a full understanding of what their surgical needs are and even if the person is not knowledgeable he is great is giving you website and additional information to study up so that you are comfortable with any upcoming procedures And he does not rush He speaks directly to the client
Have always had good experience with the surgeries at NW. Excellent facilities with state of art equipment and facilities. Doctors are friendly, considerate and on the cutting edge if their profession.
Dr Patel and his staff are super great! Very caring for my condition, showed lots of concern and explained the results, prognosis and plan of treatment thoroughly and in easy term to understand. Great experience.
I feel like Dr Patel actually took his time to listen to me and answer my many questions. I find that many surgeons are dry and often lack compassion. I did not get that from him or his team. It was reassuring. Back surgery is a scary thing, but I feel like I can trust him. That goes a long way.
Dr Alpesh Patel is an exceptional surgeon . He has patiently listened and answered my questions, and explained all steps in the process of my two spine correction surgeries. The care and concern he shows for his practice and his patients is exemplary. All surgeons should strive to follow his example.
He listens and engages with the patient so you feel he really cares. He immediately sits down and gets to your level and makes eye contact. He answers all your questions and try's to help in anyway he can. Love his team of Linda and Jeremy as well. Already had one spinal surgery by him and totally trust him to do my next one.
Dr. Patel is a wonderful surgeon that performed a complicated procedure on my back that allows me to now move my feet and walk properly. He has an excellent bedside manner and seems to truly care about his patients.
Dr. Patel is one of the rare doctors that hit every mark. He's confident. He asks the right questions. He confirms what he say and what the patient says. I've been in sales 50 years. Dr Patel has a gift to treat people both physically and mentally.
