I thought Dr. Patel had a very positive and engaging manner. Even thought patients were backed up and it had likely been a stressful day for him, he didn't project that at all. HE was very pleasant and helpful.

Excellent provider service.

This was my first visit with Dr. Patel. The report she gave me about my eyes was good
Patient | September 21, 2017

Every thing was really good.
Patient | September 1, 2017

Dr. Patel is very good -
Patient | August 28, 2017

I have a retina problem and have had one surgery already. Need another surgery; first surgery did not work nor did steroid shots to the eye. Am concerned that Dr. Patel will not be able to correct my vision issue and may make it worse. But he is extremely polite and informative about my condition. He seems to be doing the best he can to improve my vision.
Patient | August 21, 2017

Love Dr. Patel and whole staff!

Patient | June 26, 2017

Dr. Patel was so good at sharing information regarding my condition, what was needed & how it would be performed - and follow-up! He's a very good dr.

Patient | May 18, 2017

Dr. Patel is a great man.
Patient | April 25, 2017

I have another appointment in May 2017 with Dr. Patel to address a post retina surgery concern. As a result of not all of the tissue being removed from my retina during the first operation, a second operation is likely to address and correct significant and continuing eyesight degradation.
Patient | April 21, 2017

Dr. Patel was outstanding.
Patient | April 17, 2017

I trust her.
Patient | March 29, 2017

I think he's great!! He's doing everything he can to avoid me having to have surgery. He's very gentle - takes his time & explains things & shows me the latest scans.
Patient | March 27, 2017

Dr Patel is great in explaining any answers to the questions I may have.
Patient | March 27, 2017

Many eye problems, Dr. Patel explained everything, very easy to understand.
Patient | March 3, 2017

My provider is very good.
Patient | March 1, 2017

Understanding information was more my problem then his.
Patient | February 27, 2017

Excellent clinical skill provides regular quick, painless Eyelea injections to mitigate macular degeneration due to histoplasmosis and retina detachment.
Patient | February 27, 2017

Dr. Patel exceeds the 'very good' category in every area, to include problem diagnosis and corrective surgical procedures.
Patient | February 23, 2017

Hopefully none of my family or friends will have a detached retina but if they did I would absolutely recommend Dr. S. Patel.

Dr. Patel was a very qualified and caring physician.
