09/05/11 5 5 5 5 Dr Patel and his team are like family to my wife and I. They always work with us to ensure optimum care without overpaying. (Nurse Natalie is a fun person, too) We really love their use of technology from a nearly paperless office to being able to see our lab results and communicate via a secure web site. Professional, personable, and reliable. Both in our 50's, Dr Patel and his staff are the best we've seen.

21/04/11 4 5 5 4 Front counter staff is solid. Appointments are obtain easily. Assisted with various medical issues over the past two years. I have been seen more by the nurse practioners but they were always competent and just as eager to help.

07/06/10 3 4 3 1 Dr Patel has managed misdiagnosing me TWICE. Both I and my girlfriend are in the medical field (and he is unaware of this) and see how he operates and think that his knowledge is very poor. He seems mild mannered, but we have since changed doctors as our faith in Dr. Patel had diminished. I doubt that the reviews here are all genuine, so beware of this, as this is what we used to choose him.

19/04/10 4 3 5 5 FOr the most part I find the staff friendly. I arrived for my 8:00 appt at 7:50, the receptionist arrived at 8:00, the nurses at 8:10 and the PA at 8:25. My time is just as valuable as yours. You expect me to be on time and I would appreciate it if you were also. I really like Dr. Patel and Catherine Graves, and find them friendly, knowledgeable and feel they truly do take their time with me, care about my health, and listen to me when I talk about my symptoms. I also like they way they switch off every visit so both are familiar with me and my health issues.

30/01/10 5 5 5 5 Just like the last comment below...I wish I would have found Dr. Patel and Kathy years ago. There is nothing negative to say here. They are the best. They are very smart, organized and know what they are doing. I have been to a specialist recently who was very impressed by their work up they did on me before referring me out. The whole office is very down to earth, personable and friendly. I am so happy with this office and I finally after many years feel like I am starting to get answers about my medical issues.

08/09/09 5 5 5 5 I came to Dr.Patel three months ago and am sorry I didn't find him years before. There is much to be said about his practice, all good, things like a great bedside manner and short waiting times, but the best part is the efficiency of his office. No paperwork. He's all 21st Century computerized. He and his staff use laptops to store your records and refer to them during visits. He has a super website. They give you a password and when you or the staff have a question or comment it's as simple as hitting a few keys. Diagnostic test results etc. are posted for you to read online the next day. With all this mess about managed health care these days, these people are way out in front of the curve. This is the way medicine should be administered and will be administered by all docs. twenty years from now.

15/06/09 5 5 5 5 Dr.Patel is an extremely caring doctor. He keeps up with all of the latest treatments. He runs an up-to-date office, and has all of your medical history on the computer he uses instead of writing it down. Much more efficient.

27/04/09 5 5 5 5 Dr. Patel, Kathy, and all the staff are WONDERFUL. I have had quite a few medical issues this past year, and any time I need to get in...they just work it out. Dr. Patel also takes a very proactive approach to keeping up with his patients and their treatment by other physicians. If you are looking for the BEST DOCTOR and OFFICE in Oviedo, or the Orlando area, call Dr. Patel.

01/03/08 5 5 5 5 Dr. Patels himself listens to you. He treats you like a real person. I do plenty of research on medical isues before I see him and he is always on top of the latest information. He has made a great choice in Kathy Graves as his nurse practictioner. They compliment each other. His Office staff is very polite, helpful and takes care of all our document requests very quickly. We have never had a paperwork problem with this office. I cannot remenber a time when I called saying I was on my way in that I was told ...Sorry we can't see you today. They always fit me in. Need I say more..... Jay S.

21/08/07 5 5 4 5 I've been a patient for many years. Most amazing is my wait time has always been brief. Dr. Patel is precise, knowledgeable and technologically savvy. (Why it ever took modern medicine this long to PRINT prescriptions I'll never understand, but I really appreciate receiving a clear, readable, prescription).

20/08/07 5 4 5 5 Very helpful doctor and staff. They are quick to know what is bugging me and have a cure to my problems both real and imagined. My many thanks to the whole team. My average wait time is only about 5 minutes and if I walk in, they most of the time can get me an appointment for later that day or at least early the next day.

22/03/07 5 5 5 This doctor is awesome. The office is run extremely efficient and everything is done on the computer. The doctor has a high degree of knowledge and is very thorough. If he doesn't fully know about a condition he will admit it and research for further clarification. Reports are completed in just a few days and the doctor or NP almost always personally call with results. Dr. Patel does an excellent job explaining his thought process and clearly states the patients options to ensure active participation by the patient. Moreover, he speaks perfect english and is very easy to understand. If you are looking for a cutting edge family practice doctor with a great bedside manneer, you should give Dr. Patel strong consideration. You will be presently surprised.
