I was seen by a student. He discuss with me options on injections. When Dr. Pettel came in he discuss surgery. I explain my fear of surgery that I had a bad experience in my left knee when I had surgery that I got a blood clot in my lung. I was not ready to make that decision in fear of a bad experience. He seemed a little annoy with me or at least that's what I felt. I've heard many good things of Dr. Pettel and that's why I choose him. I won't give up on him I just have to weigh my options. I'm not talking bad about him. It was just my feeling on that appt.

I would never recommend Dr Preetesh Patel as it was apparent that he had made his decision not to treat me before even speaking with me, as he replied to my statement "are you going to give me any hope?" with the aggressive, unwarranted "I'm not God, I deal with facts and statistics, I'm not here to give you hope." His overly negative response was uncalled for. No one deserves to be handled as a statistic and unhuman. Compassion was exhibited from the medical student who offered me a hand as I got up ... thank you for the human touch!

I went for a consultation for knee replacements and was told I was not a candidate because of prior knee surgery. I was disappointed that a way to work around that was not considered. I was referred to a sports medicine dr which does not help me as I've been seeing one for years and have done all I want to do with that. I'm no longer interested in a temporary fix which is what I was offered.
