Plan your visit well in advance: remember it will only last 15 minutes! Write notes beforehand and read/speak/tell as quickly as you possibly can about WHY precisely you are there for. Fix a further appointment (remember you can have a "double" lasting 30 minutes only if it is genuinely warranted. Make notes yourself during consultation to remind you of everything that has been spoken, said etc.
Dr. Patel is simply exceptional. She not only asks all the right questions, but truly listens to the answers and makes sure that she gets to the bottom of things. She works together with the patient and doesn't hesitate to refer the patient to a specialist where justified.
I have been a patient at this practice for more than 40 years and have been seeing Dr S Patel for about 15. I find her sympathetic, attentive and constructive. She shows genuine concern for the health and welfare of her patients and is never dismissive. She will refer a complex health issue and reviews her own diagnosis if the initial remedy does not deal with the problem. She is always my practitioner of choice!
I saw Dr Patel instead of my "normal" doctor and she really took good care of me. She listened to my problems, she showed respect for me and she took me on my word, I felt that whe believed me and did not discard me as an old women who just came to complain. Very good experience.
