I have been in severe discomfort for four days straight. Have been to ER and was seen by a PA and NP. Have also been seen by my internist who told me that it was vital that ai be seen by a Urologist. I am an existing patient here and to be seen as an emergency. They said they can get me an appointment in one month! Or I could be seen by their NP this week. I explained to them that I need to be seen by a urologist, but they would not give me an appointment. Very uncaring office.
I am so thankful for yelp. This dr. Has a five stars with 20 reviews so I gave him a call and I was in his office within 2 hours! I had gone to emergency one week prior to find out I had a kidney stone that has been making me sick for 2 1/2 weeks and not passing. I loved him and all of his assistants. I felt he was extremely knowledgeable and treated me in the best possible way. I would recommend him to all my friends.
I finally got good PPO health insurance with my new job. I looked up a good urologist here on Yelp. I have been having problems with kidney stones and blockages. Doctor sent me for some tests to be done, and to see a nephrologist. Hopefully it's nothing too serious. He explained things in terms someone without a medical degree can understand. Whole office staff is nice and was not to hard getting an appointment as a new patient either, I go back end of month. Park on the street otherwise it's 1 dollar every 20 mins, and you never know how long of a wait at an appointment. Very nice caring Dr.
Dr. Patel not only excels at surgical skill but is also extremely communicative with his patients. He does an amazing job both in and out of surgery! I would recommend him highly!
Very nice person and very complete examine, no rushing.<br>He will remain my urologist, for sure.
I was lucky to have been referred to Dr. Patel by my urologist. Dr. Patel is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. An amazing surgeon who removed a cancer nodule from my left kidney. Dr. Patel is the Best of the Best.
Dr Patel is amazing! Kind, compassionate and smart. He is trying to save me from suprapubic bladder surgery where he could have made money doing this. I have multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's disease and am 83 years old. I need to catherize. Dr Patel got me down to once a day, less infections and with his beautiful explanations less office visits and er visits. Even when I get an infection he is right on top of it. I highly recommend this kind doctor and his office!
Dr. Patel is the latest of many urologists I have seen in the past 30 years or so. He is also the best. Very understanding, and answers all of my questions (I have many). Has provided treatment that actually works. Uses the latest technology. Is sympathetic to my needs. I recommend him<br>to anyone who needs a urologist. He seems to also be a genuinely nice person, and if you have gone to a few doctors, you have by now realized that that is not always the case.
I had gone to my primary Dr a couple months ago due to a pain I had on my back, I found out had a 24mm kidney stone. I was referred to a urologist in Thousand Oaks, which that Dr had told me ,he will have to schedule me in 2 diff days to get my stone out because of the size, long story short I end up going to Dr Patel, he was able to lasered it out in one procedure, I have to say it all went very well, 6 days after my procedure I had my stent removed, which that wasn't as bad as I expected. Dr Patel was very thorough and explained everything to me.I am stone free! I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Patel I will drive from Thousand Oaks to see him again.
This review is the most sincere expression I can write. I was originally referred to Dr Patel by my internist Daniel Rosen who saw an elevation in my PSA count. He suggested I meet with Dr Patel who he felt would be a good fit for me in diagnosing what was going on. I had never before been to a urologist and was very uneasy about what would this would be. I made the appointment and was greeted by a warm engaging smile who explained all of the details of what he wanted to do on my first visit. I had a physical exam and ultra sound which did not scream any alarms. After the exam he suggested that to be on the safe side he ordered up an MRI to provide more clarity as to why my PSA was elevated. I had the MRI which showed a probability that infact there was cancer in the prostateto further provide proof positive he ordered a biopsy which confirmed the diagnosis. Needless to say I was very concerned but Dr Patel spelled everything out for me and explained in detail various coarse of action that was available to me clearly and in a manner that all of the tools to make the best decision for me. All the while I asked him if I was his dad how would you advise me. He responded the same way as what we were discussing. He carefully explained the robotic surgery to me and all that went into it.A date was set for the surgery and he explained the procedure in detail as well as the after care so there would be no surprises or concerns. The surgery went off perfectly and I was home after 3 days. I was in contact with him during that period on any question I had and never did I ever get the feeling from him that I was bothering him. He made himself available! His professional staff made the process very easy and comforting to me. To express the thanks I have would be an understatement. Dr Patel is a warmskilled professional who brings a special humanity to his practice. I would strongly recommend him to anyone needing to see a urologist. He will always be in our heart.<br>Irwin Z
As a new patient of Dr. Patel I can say that the reviews written about him and his staff are absolutely accurate. Very thorough, very informative, very nice. Made me feel comfortable and informed about possible causes and procedures. <br><br>Being personable and caring and accommodating with patients is so important. <br><br>Very happy to have found him.
Dr. Patel is one of the best, if not, the best urologist I have ever been to (and I have been to many including centers like CedarSinai and UCLA). He is knowledgeable, professional, takes his time to listen to all my concerns. I wish all doctors would be like him, so dedicated to his job and making you feel you are cared for.<br>Great, great doctor.
I have been with Dr. Patel since he took over for a previous doctor and am so happy I stayed with him! He really takes the time to get to know you and make you feel comfortable which is something many doctors don't do anymore. I highly recommend going to see him if you are looking for a urologist!
Dr Patel is remarkable. He is truly compassionate, an amazing listener, answers any and all questions, relieves all worries and, best of all, is a skilled surgeon. I was shocked to learn that I had a tumor growing in my kidney and more shocked to know it had been growing for a few yearstotally asymptomatic. Tests for an unassociated pain in my back eventually led me to Dr. Patel, his diagnosis and then surgery to remove the tumor and part of my kidney. Remarkable no pain, minimal discomfort, a few days in the hospital and then back to a normal and an active life. I am so fortunate to have such a uniquely skilled doctor.
i really do not have the words to explain how dr patel made life worth living to the fullest. cancer, a word that took my breathe away and dr patel removed it from my kidney on sept 19. he is so personable, honest and great at what he does. he makes you feel like it will be ok and makes you a believer that he will do his best. he is in contact with you before and after surgery, an amazing man and very gifted doctor. you are truly in great hands, almost as if god is performing surgery himself. truly in touch with his patients and caring. thanks dr patel and his staff is awesome as well. today is sept 28, i went for follow up, shopping and on dinner date with my spouse. my activities are normal, only thing i cannot do is submerge in water. 8 days after surgery, amazing!!!
a wonderful doctor........takes the time to explain everything !
Great doctor. Dr Patel did my surgery and he did an excellent job! He's so patient and kind I wish all doctors were as good as him!
Dr. Patel is an amazing Doctor. Knows his field and makes doctors visits easy. He is compassionate and answers all questions with answers. I recommend this doctor for anything related to Urology.
Never thought I would write this about a doctor,but with Dr. Patel the patient health and needs truely comes first. DR. Patel was our rock during my sisters most difficult health situation. He performed surgery on my sister with great success. But not once did he forget the emotional aspect. He treated my sister and us (her family) as though we were his family. The health industry is a better place because of Dr. Patel. THANK YOU Dr. Patel we are forever grateful.
Dr Patel is the finest Urologists i have found in Los Angeles not only does the Dr know his stuff but he also spends time with you and explaining things in a way that a layman will understand.I highly recommend the Dr Not only is he a good Dr but he is also a true gentleman.The ladies that run the office are also a real plus,
