the assessment was a second opinion for my knee. the first recommended a total knee replacement as soon as possible. Dr. Patel performed knee replacements for a couple friends who recommended him for the second opinion. Dr. Patel consulted with me and other physician(s) and determined a Partial replacement was my best option then explained how and why. It was great news. The initial exam and course of action was fantastic. I will withhold total judgement until after the procedure has. even performed. So far, I couldn't be happier.

Dr. Patel did not offer any recommendations for treatment of my problem. He said my past surgeries may not have been necessary. My husband and I were very disappointed with his disinterest in my problem. I was recommended by my surgeon to Dr. Patel. I left knowing no more about my condition than before I came to see him.

Reviewed on Jul 6, 2018

If I did not ask the woman at check-out I would never have known about the portal I could access for test results. When I asked Dr. Patel how would I know about test results he said " I see 60 patients a day, do you expect me to call every patient". He never mentioned the portal that Cleveland Clinic had. I found him curt, disinterested and totally without compassion.

Care provider seems to have a very busy schedule that hampers his ability to dedicate time to patient. Although attention paid was good there is a sense that matters need to be covered quickly to grant time for next duties. Taking into consideration that I traveled from outside the country I would have wanted to cover other questions and matters but couldn't.
