Dr Patel took the time to throughly examine my issues. He took the time to explain in detail why I was having the issues and how to treat them. Then he asked did I have any questions or concerns. His professionalism was great.

I have already recommended Dr. Patel. I was very pleased with his bedside manner, the options he provided, the detail he discussed with me and even viewed the X-rays in person with me. That has not happened with me at Vanderbilt in 10+ yearsreally helped my understanding.
