Dr. Pinkal P. Patel's Ratings
Dr. Patel seemed like a good, knowledgeable dr. UNTIL I went on medicare. After that all bets were off. My chart started having diagnosis of issues I did not have, and did not say I had or had a problem with. I feel the man is dishonest and bilking medicare by lying about patient issues. I wish I had marked down all the issues I had to get corrected, and those my next doctor had to correct. I should have gotten an attorney, if only to prevent others from having to deal with misinformation.
I have seen Dr. Patel and Kathy Graves for years. I was initially just needing routine physicals but then had a serious issue and he handled it great. I have a PhD in a medical-related field and believe I am in a good position to know a good doctor/NP from a not so good one. Dr. Patel is awesome. Period. I don't know if all of the ratings here are real, but this is the first time I have rated anything or anyone on the internet. I feel strongly in this doctor and his team.
I have been a patient with Dr Patel since he began his practice in Oviedo. He purchased the business from the former doctor and has been my PCP for a very long time. I trust him with what he tells me. He is a concerned and dedicated physician. My mother moved in with my wife and I and she has started going to him also.
OK doctor but kind of arrogant and very rude at times--which is a surprise because he seems mild mannered and polite. Maybe he just doesn't like me? He's fine, but I wouldn't trust him if I had a serious illness. I also don't trust all of the ratings here, but who knows...
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.
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.
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.
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.
