Ratings for Dr. Ketan S. Patel
My Husband and I first visited Dr. Patel back in 2013 – 8 years after we started trying to have a child. We kept delaying making an appointment thinking it would happen when the time was right. At our first appointment Dr. Patel carefully explained what our options, alternatives and approximate odds were. Dr. Patel quickly started a course of tests to help determine any underlying causes of infertility and to arm us with information to assist us in quest to have a child. After our first IUI we were shocked and thrilled to find ourselves pregnant. After the birth of our daughter in December 2013 we waited almost a year to see if we could naturally become pregnant. By late 2015 we decided not to wait any longer and went back to see Dr. Patel. We started a similar course of treatment and were successful on our second IUI. We are now expecting our second child in May 2016. I would and do recommend Dr. Patel to anyone I know who is having trouble conceiving on their own. I wish I had not wasted so many years being scared --- Dr. Patel has changed our lives and he couldn’t have made the process any easier to understand, cope with and get through. Dr. Patel moves the process along very quickly and he is very thorough in explaining each and every step. Everyone at Dr. Patel’s office is very accommodating and efficient and they make this difficult journey as easy as possible.
Dr Patel engages his patients and takes time to discuss any questions or worries unlike any physician I have worked with. All of the staff have great personalities and make you feel comfortable in any situation. The practice in general is incredibly efficient with a structured process but you never feel rushed. It just means you don’t have to wait for long periods of time. The most important part is that they work together with you to hit the goal of being pregnant which they do with a high rate of success!
I am a little late with this as I first met with Dr. Patel in 2012 to start our process. The first consult was very informative and he laid all the options on the table with pros and cons of each. We NEVER felt pressured to do anything, He is a straight shooter and that can rub some people in the wrong way, but for us it was what we needed to make the decisions we needed to. If you're reading this you know the heartache of wanting something so sacred, so for me it was really important to have a Dr. that would tell me the facts whether we liked it or not. He does a lot of testing up front; you have to be patient. This is why HE IS SO GOOD. He wants you to get pregnant too, so he wants to make sure there is nothing in his control he can help with before IVF. The Staff there is AMAZING! From the front desk, billing, and nurses. They are all on your side. Rest assured you are in great hands with Dr. Patel. Our sweet baby was born 1/23/14 and he is perfect! - Natalie
Dr Patel and his staff are AMAZING!!! We can not say it enough how amazing his office is. We are so grateful to them in helping us start our famiy. Dr Patel is kind and warm and very honest in how he can help. Each time I visited the office, I was always greeted by name with a warm smile by each staff member, I always felt welcome, Dr Patel's office is like one big family,I felt they really were my cheerleaders in wanting us to get pregnant. The nurses are amazing, Cori, Doreen and Stephanie are so sweet and always calmed me down before any procedure, which made this entire process so much easier. I highly recommend Dr. Patel to anyone struggling with fertility, he truly is an amazing Doctor and makes the entire process that much easier with his comforting and personable bedside manner. We recently graduated from Dr. Patel's office, to our OBGYN, I miss going and seeing everyone. We will be back for baby #2 very soon! Thank you again for making our dreams come true.
I don't normally do these surveys, but I cannot say enough about how wonderful our experience has been with Dr Patel and his staff. We met with one other RE before Dr Patel, and had one scheduled after him. As soon as we consulted with him, I knew he would be our choice. All staff, including Dr Patel, are reachable by cell phone. They are available to answer questions day and night. They work weekends and late hours and are very flexible with appointment times. I've never had to wait longer than 10 minutes. The staff, including Dr Patel, will know you by name after the first few visits. Truly the best physician experience I have ever had.
I would never recommend Dr Patel to anyone. He has very rude bedside manners. My first meeting with him he told me that I had PCOS w/o any testing at all. He based this only on some of the symptoms I had. But when he did internal ultrasound he did not see any cysts on my ovaries and my hormone levels were fine. Then he checked to see if my falopian tubes were blocked and I was very nervous about what this entailed I just did not know what to expect. It ended up being very painful and he could not get the dye thru my right tube after I got changed I was crying and tried to talk to him about why it was so painful and what this could mean he blew me off like it was no big deal. All he said was in a few weeks we will try this test again and see if the dye will go thru. He was able to unblock my tube the next visit however his rudeness made me never go back. He told me that best way to concieve was thru IVF I feel he was just out for more money and really did not care about me as a patient.
Dr. Patel and his staff were caring and professional. Of course this was a very emotional wrought experience, but they were understanding and helpful every step of the way. Fortunately we were successful, but their caring staff helped us be appropriately cautious along the way, providing case by case scenarios and options. We were delighted in their expertise, thoroughness, and compassion.
I was referred to Dr. Patel years ago by a friend who had a healthy daughter via IVF (she later had a son via a frozen embryo transfer). I am very grateful to my friend for the recommendation. Dr. Patel was straightforward, honest, and complete in discussing my options. His office is well run and the lab is wonderful - they were able to answer my questions, assist in transferring specimens, etc. I was able to quickly get pregnant with my amazing son, and was very happy to go back to him when I wanted a second child. I'm now pregnant again and am so grateful to him and his office staff. I frequently refer people to Dr. Patel - I think he has an excellent office and lab, and the results certainly speak for themselves.
