Patient Reviews
Jul 25, 2021
I've never had a surgery before and have never really faced any major health crisis, so I was super nervous and afraid when I found out I needed a thyroid surgery. Dr. Patel has the rare gift of easing that anxiety thru calm honesty and rational empathy. I'm so grateful to him and his team for their patience and mindfulness. I feel extremely lucky to have been referred to him for this procedure (especially since I only have a medicaid ins at the moment, and I was sure no good doctors like this would ever accept that) - thank you so much! Also, his office staff is pleasantly organized and responsive, and I've never had to wait long during my appointment.
