    The staff is great really nice to see everyone seems to like there jobs! And love Dr Patel. I only have a small issue with the PAs. If you look at my chart you can see that I qualify for pain meds. I have such a messed up back and nerve issues. I feel like they are looking at me as a drug user. Some of us are good about taking our meds and aren’t an addict! I’m praying after my surgery I won’t require as much pain meds.

    Dr Patel has been treating me for many years. Great bedside manners. He seems always concerned about my welfare. During the procedure he keeps me informed about at each step. His assistant is also attentive and patient.
