Dr. Patel has operated on my wife and several of my friends. He is an outstanding surgeon, who makes the correct diagnosis, operated only when there is a high probability of success, is compassionate and explains everything well. I highly recommend him!

When I met Dr. Patel I had hopes that he could help me relieve the intense back pain and sciatica that I had been suffering from for a couple of years. I left his office with confidence that he could do the job. He performed an L4-L5 laminectomy, and removed stenosis and a cyst from that area. I'm delighted that the sciatica and back pain are completely gone, and I can stand up straight for the first time in 27 years. My experience with Dr. Patel could not have been better.

Dr. Patel was cordial, patient, and provided excellent care. My back surgery was complex, taking 10 hours, and he ensured I received quality care in the hospital as well as regular, supportive follow up care.
