Patient Comment October 2019
Dr Patel was very informative, he made everything easy to understand without me feeling stupid for not understanding "Doctor Speak". He was friendly and of a cheerful nature. He is a very helpful Doctor, able to explain what confused me and to expand on those explanations to make it easier to understand the reason for why things are done a certain way (sometimes it is annoying to patients to not know the "why's" of medical orders and he helped with that).
