Testimonials

"I could not ask for a better doctor."

I have been going to Dr. Patel for over 4 years. He is an excellent doctor. He is knowledgeable, professional and I have observed him to treat all of his patients with respect and dignity. I could not ask for a better doctor. He covers your blood work and what's happening with you medically thoroughly and not treat you like an assembly line patient.

"Thankful for the good care"

Robert and I needed to move to Clearwater to be closer to family. He had to get a new nephrologist in this area, but we are thankful for the good care you gave him the past several years.

"Hats off to him."

Excellent physician. Explained my kidney problem and suggested how to care for it in detail with an explanation on well written notes. Hats off to him.
