23/07/14 5 5 5 5 Dr. Patel is the most compassionate and caring Dr. I am a new patient and had problems with another Dr. Dr. Patel took me as a patient because I didn't have a Dr and needed my meds. He saw fit to help me and see my need. He sits down and talks to you. He doesn't just being you in the office and in two minutes you are out. He actually cares about your well being. Dr. Patel is a great Dr and I couldn't have made a better choice to see him.

22/03/13 4 1 2 4 I used to think Dr. Patel was the best psychiatrist in the area. I used him for over a year then literally one day it was obvious he had a bad day and took it out on me. He told me that doing my Disability paperwork was tedious and he wouldn't fill out another one for me. He used air quotes when referring to an issue of concern I had which indicated he didn't believe me. He then apologized at the end but that didn't cut it. You don't treat psych patients that way. Not cool Doc. I wonder if he knows I could sue him for malpractice but never did because he was a good dr...or at least I thought he was.

14/11/12 5 3 5 5 Dr Patel talks to you like a person, not a paycheck. He listens to your concerns and acts appropriately. The only negativity is his incessant tardiness, but know that is due to the fact that he doesn't work out of just one office any day of the week! I would highly recommend him and his services.

01/05/11 1 1 1 2 Dr. Parimal B. Patel makes up his own rules. He has an exagerated sense of entitlement, bordering on unproffessional behavior (There is a possibility that he violated my Federal HIPAA rights. He works an agenda, does not listen or observe well, bases his diagnosis on "Family Histor" and not on an independent observation:(which although allowed by law, leaves room for gross error). I found this physician to be lazy in his practice of responcible treatment of the clients that are in his care. In my opinion he is arrogant, rude and he caused me great harm. My experience in speaking to others who have been under his care have confirmed my opinions and the physician should (in my estimation be disciplined by the psychiatric board) I would recommend stearing clear of this psychiatrist.  Respond
