Dr. Patel is a godsend

I suffered from chronic pain for 5 years, 3 without a diagnosis. Dr. Patel was so supportive and helpful - his advice led to me finally getting a diagnosis and finding a surgeon to correct the problem. He listens and is compassionate. I am so grateful to have been able to have Dr. Patel as my doctor through this.
