I am grateful to have Dr. Patel as my doctor. My biggest concern is he will retire soon. Since I moved back to Cape Breton in 2004, I've had three doctors who left their practice without consulting their patients. Dr. Patel never makes me wait and I appreciate that he is honest and up front.

Despite the Liberal government's denials, we are in a crisis. However, I'd rather have no doctor than one who is no longer serviceable.

Dr. Navin Patel was on duty at the walk-in clinic where I went to get a refill for an anti-depressant prescription and to seek help with alcohol abuse. I was hoping for a referral, some info on where to go to get help; something, anything. His response was to belittle me by saying, "Don't you have willpower?" and "Why are you ruining your life?" I kept reiterating that yes, I'm aware of how shameful my problem is; that's why I'm here, asking for help, trying to get better. Unfortunately his goal was clearly more geared towards scorning me than helping me. I'm aware that the island has a doctor shortage, but this man needs to retire. A doctor with such contempt can cause more damage than good.

Yelled at an older patient because she wanted a painkiller or to see a specialist for her pain. He wouldn't have it and told her to deal with it. Horrible if you ask me.

He was very rude when I showed up to the walk-in clinic. Accused me of abusing the system because the injury happened two weeks ago and I didn't go to emergency.
