Patient Reviews
May 18, 2024
I was nervous, I was unsure what was going on with my health. I appreciated Dr. Patil’s calm demeanor. He was to the point, explained the procedure that would be done, and quickly helped put my fears at ease. I left my initial appointment feeling confident in my decision to have Dr. Patil perform the surgery.
