Ratings for Dr. Neel B. Patel
Dr. Neel B. Patel's response
I have never responded to a comment in the last ten years but feel compelled to respond to this particular review as I remember the encounter and do not believe that it accurately reflects my interaction with this patient. The appointment with the new patient was to address a refractory skin problem not improving with prior attempts. The drugs that we discussed could have significant health consequences. Therefore, a thorough assessment of the patient's social and medical history were required before prescribing this drug. Though this may seem probing or unrelated to the issue at hand, it is a requirement that needs to be documented when considering these medications that are used to treat this condition. I do not think I sounded impolite, as I discussed this case with my nurse after reading this review, but I have to ask similar questions to any patient considering these drugs. Though I do try my best to establish a good rapport, clearly in this circumstance, it did not work out. In the end, I will accept a poor review as I must have poorly communicated the end plan, but I do not agree with the inflammatory nature of the review. On another note, this website allows a doctor to pay $120 to suppress or hide reviews, this I do not believe in.

Few years ago I develop a rush all over my body I even end up in the ER..No one new what was the real reason of my rush..I was told I need many test and at that time I had no insurance.Luckily I found Dr.Patel...He saved my life for only $30 cream when any other Doctor estimated over $2000.00. I highly recommend this honest and very knowledgeable person who is very kind and caring ! Thank Dr.Patel!
We are so glad the we found Dr. Patel. He diagnosed my mother with a rare cancer that other doctors never found. He carefully explained our treatment options and answered all of our questions. His bedside manner was excellent. I recommend him to everyone.
Dr. Patel was very rude and very unprofessional. He talked down to me and treated me like garbage. I came in for a dermatology appt. I have been to other Dermatologist doctors and none have been as mean and condescending as he was. He acted as though I was some bum off the street asking for money. I came to him for advice on how to clear my acne and he said that I need to make a decision, not him. Acted unprofessional and inadequate. I would NEVER recommend him nor see him again. I left the room upset and crying at his words and actions towards me. I work in the medical field and would never treat a patient this doctor treated me. DISGUSTED!
EXTRAORDINARY! HAPPY WITH THE RESULTS! Staff was friendly, professional and pleasant; short waiting time on my both appointments a week apart (I was actually surprised); dr. Patel was the 4th doctor I was seeing (after 2 physicians and one dermatologist) that gave me the right diagnosis and treatment (the first dermatologist, dr Yeabrough's office was treating me for a completely different skin condition); dr. Patel was very knowledgeable, inspired confidence and certainty. My skin condition visibly improved on the second day and I couldn't believe my eyes on the third day; after exactly a week I reduced my treatment to half a dosage and removed the bandages, which I had to wear to conceal the wound. I had my skin condition for 3 months and a half, 2 doctors gave me the wrong medication which made the wound look worse and even spread out. Would definitely recommend dr. Patel to anyone. Ultimately you wanna see quick results and relief.
