I would highly recommend anyone suffering from chronic pain to see Dr. Patel. He is the first doctor ever to actually listen and take the time to understand what I am, and what I have been, going through for the past 30 years. Dr. Patel is also confident enough in himself that he doesn't get offended or insulted if I ask for explanations or don't immediately agree with what he is saying. Dr. Patel spends whatever time is necessary to offer explanations and to answer any questions I may have before I leave. his office. I had to give up my primary doctor, who I loved, when he changed medical groups because it would mean having to switch to another pain doctor. If you are in pain, you have to see Dr. Raj Patel.
