Ratings for Dr. Himanshu Patel
Dr Patel is extremely knowledgeable. He is my son's doctor for 4 years now. I only wish if I had found him earlier. I was referred by friend of mine and after few visits I referred to my friends also. That says a lot. We trusted his judgement on all occasions (despite of what "google" says) and he proved right every time. In my son's situation, his health improved a lot since Dr. Patel only advises only necessary medication (unnecessary steroid and antibiotics). He does not put parents in stress at all. Staff is also excellent. We never had issue in setting up appointment even on short notice. I recommend Dr. Patel to anyone who is looking for Pediatrician.
Please for heavens' sake.......stay away ! This guy has zero EQ, can be very brusque and a complete unprofessional.. The doctor is rude to the point, that he can be termed, downright stupid. It leaves one dumbstruck, as to whether this is a marketing strategy that the Doctor has decided to adopt. Not one of my friends, had anything good to say. Still we wanted to go ahead with this doctor (my stupidity - plz listen to friends)... they are hardcore money minded. For a Annual free Flu vaccination covered at 100% by my Insurance, they wouldnt administer, unless we paid them mandatorily. We refused dumb-struck at their money mongrel attitude and went to CVS...... Fast-forward 3 months.... I just wanted to have them fill my child's Student's Health Information. And the crappy response given by the medic was unbelievable. And I really cant believe that some people are giving 5-ratings beneath. Anyone, who even remotely has any intention to see this medic, please read through all the comments and decide. May God bless your kid, should you decide to still go with him !
My 7 year old and 4 year old go to Dr. Patel since their birth. Like some of the other parents mentioned he is a no nonsense doctor. We completely trust his diagnosis. We can call the office anytime and get an appointment if needed and there is almost never a long wait to see the doctor. Dr. Patel is very knowledgeable and he knows what he is doing. I strongly recommend him.
He is very rude arrogant and very unprofessional. Always reply parent question with sarcastic answers. The staff is even more rude and they don't even have a degree....so what's arrogance for. They early vaccinate my child for one vaccine and now after 4 year I have to repeat the last dose other wise my child can not attend the school. Why u gave my child vaccine month early so u can get money from my Ins early????Awful
We visited this Dr's office with an appointment for my child as he had a severe Caugh and high fever. The rude, unfreindly staff asked to fill out a form and asked to provide previous medical history as a pre requisite. We had the file and gave them. We filled out the form and were waiting for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, the lady asked me to provide my SSN. I said, sorry, I don't give SSN to anyone except fot mortgage company. The staff was so rude and declined to let us see the Doctor. We had to go home back with the sick child. I have never seen such CHEAP minded people who did not allow the sick child to see the Dr, who was waiting for so long by demanding SSN. Very un-professional and looks like some money looters from patients and they definitely have some criminal intention to get SSN from parents. They think, we are stupid to provide SSN to see a Dr. Never recommend anyone to go to this Dr's office. Your identify may get stolen soon if you start visiting this Dr's office by giving your SSN.
