May 18, 2020 5:01 PM

N. Patel is a great doctor. This was an over-the-phone visit. In person, sometimes it is diffficult to understand his speech. And definitely over the phone, it was tricky to catch all the words.

April 27, 2020 6:10 PM

Thank you for seeing me promptly, evaluating my complaint thoroughly, and coordinating the next step for evaluating my problem.

He eased my mind and let me know my condition wasn't as serious as I feared.

March 18, 2020 12:05 PM

In general this office is very difficult to get a hold of on the phone. Too long of a wait time to talk to someone in office.

March 18, 2020 12:05 PM

Dr. Nishant Patel is wonderful. He explains the results of the tests in a way I was able to completely understand. He explained why I needed to have an angiogram. He explained completely and asked me if I had any questions or concerns. He explained the risks involved in such a test. I was completely confident in his ability to help me.

January 27, 2019 6:00 PM

up until the very last process of the visit I would rate all with a ten. I needed a follow up appointment with this doctor., but the receptionist set up an appointment with the wrong doctor. this could have created a problem had I not noticed the appointment card and called the office to have it corrected. I've been an Advocate patient since it came to Park Ridge and this has never happened to me before.

January 26, 2019 6:00 PM

It was a very good visit. He is an easy going doctor.

November 18, 2018 6:00 PM
