Excellent treatment from this surgeon who is very dedicated. Gave me a lot of options and spend time explaining things even emailing me information after my appointment. Haven’t seen any surgeons this caring. I highly recommend him and will drive to see him although far from my home.

I had a terrible accident with my dogs where I lost the tip of my middle finger. Dr. Patel's surgery was incredible. I am still healing, but I am starting to see the results. His surgery was delicate.
I have full confidence in him and recommend him to others.

I visit four surgeons in town when I decided to move forward with my breast augmentation and Dr. Patel is the best. If you are a patient who truly cares about safety and not being sold something he is the doctor for you. He has treated some amazing people and has the most committed and best background in the field. I quickly realized he wasn’t trying to push or sell anything to me. He was very educating and even gave me questions I could ask others on technique as I evaluate who would be good. He was available personally to me without asking me to go through staff and this was so useful after surgery. He is there with you along the way and I can only imagine what a understanding family he must have due to his dedication. He is a perfectionist and I could not be happier now that I have healed with my results. I also met a woman recently who had surgery elsewhere that I referred to Dr. Patel as well. He fixed her up and wishes she went to him from the start. You are an artist and a SMART one Dr. Patel.

Dr. Patel is an excellent surgeon. I first saw him concerning pain in both my hands after many years working as a flight attendant. I have received wonderful care and advice, and also had him use Botox on my face. I just received filler for my lips, and they turned out great! Dr. Patel also calls to follow up to see how your doing after the procedures are done. I was very impressed and would highly recommend him.

I am so proud to say I didn’t go to anyone else. Dr. Patel is dedicated like no other. I know he gives his all to his profession and goes out of his way for his patients. Results are amazing I am so glad I went to him for my facelift. I have healed over the past few weeks and he’s been there along the way.

I couldn’t be anymore grateful for Dr. Patel and the generosity he displayed towards me when I came to him after falling off of a ladder and having extensive damage to my thumb.

I live 3 hours away from Dr. Patel’s office in Orlando. After seeing a local orthopedic surgeon, the local surgeon told me that he wouldn’t know what procedure he would use to fix my thumb until AFTER he was in surgery. At this point I was concerned about his lack of expertise and the ability to properly fix my hand. I was in a bad situation so a family member who has been under Dr. Patel’s care at a prior time for her hand surgery, said that she would like to contact him about my thumb. She sent the picture of my X-ray to Dr. Patel and explained my situation to him, who immediately wrote back asking who’s hand that was and explained that he would like to look at it as soon as possible.

At this point I was thrilled to know that after reading Dr. Patel’s credentials and understanding what an outstanding surgeon he is, that I had an opportunity to have my hand looked at by one of the best surgeons in the region. He took me in for an appointment the very next morning!! I have been informed that his office is extremely busy, and for Dr. Patel to be so concerned for my thumb, and to see me in such a timely matter shows his dedication towards his work.

I did not have any insurance at the time, and we were not sure if workers compensation would be able to cover this injury, so out of the kindness of his heart Dr. Patel explained to me that he would not charge for his time, xrays, or appointments!! He would give me this surgery at surgery cost and nothing else. I cannot say this enough, Dr. Patel is an Amazing Doctor and is in this line of work for the well being of his patients!!

Dr. Patel looked at my thumb the very next day after my accident, he told me EXACTLY what he would do to it to fix it BEFORE surgery and had my surgery scheduled the very next business day!!!
Dr. Patel operated on my thumb and the entire process, operation and down time was completed within an hour and a half. He has completely FIXED it where I will regain FULL use of my thumb and my hand again! I am so fortunate and want to say I am lucky for being able to have such a genuine and gracious Doctor to take care of me in such a way that Dr. Patel has.

Thank you Dr. Patel, and all of your wonderful staff for taking such good care of me! You are what a Doctor should be, and I am thankful to have met such a professional and caring surgeon. I couldn’t have been in any better hands (pun intended) than you!! Thank you!

The best in the business! Staff was courteous and prompt when I arrived. The patient registration was quick and easy. I wasn't there long before I was greeted by Dr. Patel. I can't say enough about Dr Patel! He was extremely knowledgeable, explained everything and was one of the most understanding and kind doctors of all practices I've had the pleasure to visit. I was referred to this practice by family members and I will be passing referrals to family and friends alike moving forward. Thank you to all the staff and most of all, thank you Dr. Patel!!

Dr. Patel is an AMAZING doctor! He genuinely cares about his work and his clients. He makes you feel 100% comfortable along the way. He helped my daughter with a laceration on her lip due to a tragic fall and did a phenomenal job! My daughter is only 2, so as you can imagine I was pretty upset about seeing her like this. Dr. Patel assured me that he was going to take care of her and that he did! I can't thank him enough for his work! I HIGHELY recommend Dr. Patel!

I consult with 4 plastic surgeons before deciding to proceed with Dr. Patel. For starters, he is no nonsense and does not try to act like a salesman which was very refreshing. It is clear he has a true academic passion for what he does and compassion for his patients. I came because this seems to be the glowing fact across all his patients thoughts. He is an amazing plastic surgeon and really made himself available to me throughout the process. I am very happy with my breast lift he performed and love how I am feeling. The scars are healing so well and he really helped me through this process in a way I do not think I would have gotten anywhere else. Also, he is clearly the most well trained and had a medical student he trained in the best WAY during my consults. Highly rec. him.

I am extremely grateful to Dr Patel. When I was diagnosed with melanoma, he fit me in immediately for surgery, knowing full well how serious melanoma can be. I was definitely stressed, since the prognosis of melanoma once it has spread is quite grim. Dr. Patel was very comforting and very optimistic that he could remove all the cancer. When my biopsy from the dermatologist came in, I quickly sought out Orlando Hand Surgery Associates. Dr. Patel, after reviewing my records, realized that the biopsy performed was inadequate, as it did not account for the depth of the cancer. He would have to perform surgery, knowing he may not get it all. After the results came back, he was able to determine the depth and a second surgery was scheduled, literally the next day! Dr Patel even asked another patient who had already been prepped, if they would wait, so that I could go first. I will definitely go back to Dr Patel if I ever (hopefully not) get melanoma again. He gives it the serious attention that it requires and has the skills and expertise to make sure it turns out right Thank you Dr. Patel! You literally may have saved my life!
