Ratings for Dr. Giribala R. Patel
My husband came to Dr. Patel with colon cancer. Dr. Patel addressed the cancer very agressively, and today it is nowhere to be seen. Her compassion, knowledge, and ability to treat the individual is remarkable. Dr. Patel and God gave me back my husband. Deborah in Yorba Linda, Ca.
I have been under Dr Patel's care for 8 years and have found her to be one of the most caring & compassionate Dr's through my cancer illness. I thank God for Dr Patel, her relentless drive to help cure me is far above that of some chief researchers. Dr Patel is truly a Godsend!
She comes across very friendly & nice. I find her to be very knowlegable & she does know what she is talking about. It only takes about 15 to 25 minutes to be called back to the exam room. Very seldom do you have to wait long. Biggest complaint I have is she does not spend time answering your questions. She is always in a hurry to get in & out of the room. She doesn't sit down & that lets you know she has no intentions of spending any time with you so you better speak quickly! I always have questions for her but I'm never allowed enough time to get to them. (Very disappointing & upsetting for someone that is living with cancer.) She has forgotten to cover medications I am suppose to start on because she is in such a hurry so I go months without it. Her physical exams are ridiculous. Takes one minute if that, I'm not kidding. When your dealing with cancer I sure don't walk out of her office feeling very confident with 1 minute exams & unanswered questions. Always 5 to 7 minute appts.
Dr. Patel treated my father-in-law, husband and mother-in-law all for very advanced cancers. She and her staff are the best. Very caring and concerned. Always available to answers questions. Our whole family loves her and appreciates her and her staff for the wonderful care they gave our loved ones. She is very informed about test groups and will do her best to get her patients into them.
She is a very caring and thourgh and warm...makes you feel special...most of all she listens to what you have to say...I trust her with my life...except Dr Stanley Rubin in La Mirada CA...they both the best in world and think alot of each other...can't find any better anywhere...
