    review rating 5  So thorough. Takes his time with you and covers everything. I have so much confidence in him. Such a gentleman. When you have to see a doctor, it would be natural to be nervous. But his calming effect took away my stress. I was on the verge of tears when I went to his office, but I left very relieved. Everyone in his office is very nice and helpful. A great overall experience. Cheryl was also so much help. Thank you Cheryl.

    review rating 5  I hesitated doing revision surgery. I was fortunate to see Dr. Patel’s patients and their results. They all looked natural and youthful. After a consultation he was very clear about what to expect. He spend time with me explaining what had gone wrong with my previous surgery and how he could address my concerns.. I am very happy with the results and would recommend him without hesitation.
