"What an amazing experience!"
"I went to Dr. Patel's office for a second opinion, and it was an outstanding experience! From the front desk assistant who knew the patients by first name, to the professional back staff - everything was top notch! My visit started with no office waiting. I was then brought back and the hygienist immediately put me at ease with her friendly demeanor, she did a thorough cleaning and then I saw the doctor. He was outstanding and had a great bedside manner. After years of a recurring problem, he diagnosed the problem another dentist missed. I pay out of pocket, and his pricing was fair and upfront. Very refreshing, and I highly recommend. I will be back!"
"Very professional and personable. Excellent communication both face-to-face and through state-of-the-art digital tools.Highly recommend Dr. Patel."
"I am 63 and have been to plenty of dentists over the years. I found Dr. Patel over 12 years ago and got to know him as he gave excellent care and attention to parents. My husband and I began to go to him even though we live 350 miles away. His knowledge and quality of work is excellent. He has up to date equipment to make things as easy, accurate and painless as possible he and his staff are a pleasure to be with."
"A very pleasant place to have dental work done. Dr Patel is very knowledgeable and skilled. He has an amazing memory and uses it to supplement his extensive records for each patient. Dr Patel has many of the latest dental "toys" and knows how to use them.The office staff is equally friendly and well versed in their respective areas.When I was a relatively new patient my son-in-law was visiting and broke a front tooth the evening before he was to speak to the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Dr Patel had him come right in and spent several hours making him a new tooth. That's the kind of devotion to his practice that makes it so special.Now that I have finished putting his children through college, (just kidding) I will continue to insure his comfortable retirement! As you might have guessed, we do have some fun giving the staff a hard time."
