Dr R Patel is just one of the BEST doctors I've ever had !!!!! She cares, she guides & she listens.

July 28, 2020 9:40 AM

A year ago my husband had a health scare & she told me she would help him. He instantly adored her & listened to her health plan, which got him thru it !!! We will be eternally grateful to her for her patience & guidance!!!

July 26, 2020 9:52 AM

I have had leg pain and Dr. Patel had a zoom appointment with me during the pandemic. Dr. Patel sent me over to get an x ray. Didn't find much on the x ray. She recommended stretching everyday which has helped. When I had an actual appointment for a complete physical she recommended PT for my back which thinks is causing the back pain. I feel she is really a knowledgeable doctor and cares about her patients.

July 26, 2020 9:52 AM

we have been with (Dreyer Clinic) Advocate Medical Group for around 32 years. We have had good experiences with most of the doctors. Dr. Patel is one of my favorite doctors! I always have a lot of faith in her.

July 25, 2020 9:35 PM

Dr. Patel always meets my needs, show compassion and concern as appropriate, and remembers things about myself and my family that make me feel like she really knows and cares about us.

July 24, 2020 10:32 AM

I am always treated with respect & compassion on all my visits and Dr. Patel has earned my trust with all my health related issues.

July 21, 2020 10:57 AM

dr. Patel is the best internal medicine doctor I've had in my lifetime. she absolutely listens it's great iContact and really shows she cares without judging. I am moved 35 minutes away from The Batavia office And still drive to go see Dr. Patel. I cannot express how great of a doctor and how comfortable I feel when seeing her.

July 18, 2020 12:08 AM

Fairly good experience, follow up from an ER visit the previous weekend. Dr. Patel talked about the comorbidities that might have increased the risk for it happening and scheduled followups with a specialist.

July 8, 2020 9:30 AM

Professional. Caring. Good Listener. Took time to answer questions.

July 6, 2020 3:23 PM

Dr. Patel is FANTASTIC! she was my doctor after back surgery in 11/4/20. I liked her so much that I made her my primary care doctor.

July 6, 2020 3:23 PM

when she first came to see me we had an instant connection. She truly cared for my health and it showed.

July 6, 2020 1:37 PM

I have never been happier with a Dr. she listened to all my concerns (irrational or not), she made me feel better about my anxiety and overall health/weight loss journey, and she took all of that into consideration when prescribing me anti anxiety medication (that has honestly changed my life). she took her time with me and I never felt rushed or like a bother. I would recommend her to anyone.

July 2, 2020 8:36 AM

This was my first visit with Dr. Patel. I was very happy with my visit. This was just a yearly check up and I am healthy so I did not need to discuss some issues in this survey.

June 30, 2020 9:33 AM

I have always had a positive experience at Dr. Patel's office. She listens and knows my concerns. I have never felt so confident with a doctor since my primary doctor retired years ago. i have recomended Dr. Patel to several people. I feel fortunate to have found her and hope to have her as my doctor for many years to come. i also like her nurse.

June 30, 2020 9:14 AM

Dr. Patel is always a pleasure to see! She is understanding and always has a game plan. Its difficult for her to do more when she didnt have my medical records.

June 30, 2020 9:14 AM

It's always a pleasure visiting Dr. Patel. She is patient and listens. I understand that things are tough with Covid currently. But the front desk staff and the nurses that answer messages for Dr. Patel often come off as degrading. They dont really give us the opportunity to talk through the message if the the front desk got the message wrong. They also are short and sometimes miss the point of the call completely. Wish the nurses had a little more patience when talking to me on the phone.

June 29, 2020 1:42 PM

I really enjoy Dr. Patel. We have a few common interests and often chat very briefly about that, which I think is great, and even comforting. Then we move on to health concerns. She doesn't sugar-coat anything, but she's able to explain things in a way that is easy to take, and easy to understand.

June 29, 2020 1:42 PM

Dr. Patel is wonderful. In January, when my mom was very ill, Dr. Patel took the time to talk with me after hours to help me with my concerns. Her concern was my health/mental state. She was honest with me, but her manner was, as always, friendly and caring.

June 12, 2020 8:28 AM

Great experience.

May 28, 2020 10:56 AM

Dr Rutuja Patel is always attentive and very professional, great patient Doctor rapport.

May 28, 2020 10:56 AM

I appreciate that Dr Rutuja Patel knows my medical history and that is one of the reasons I continue to select this Doctor as my PCP.

May 20, 2020 8:27 AM

I always appreciate that Dr. Rutuja Patel is very patient & understanding during my appointments whether it be office visit, televisit &/or video visit. She DOESN'T rush you & always takes time w/you making sure all of your needs are met. I appreciate that she actually listens to you.

May 11, 2020 2:22 PM

Dr. Patel is always so helpful! She always gets to the bottom of any issue and helps come up with great solutions. She is also super friendly and never rushes the appointment!

May 4, 2020 8:36 AM

Dr. Rutuja Patel is the BEST my husband and I have ever had. My daughter now is a patient on our reco. and she is very pleased.

April 16, 2020 8:46 AM

Strained thoracic muscle, during the virus outbreak had difficult breathing and lungs hurt. Dr. was very thorough and def. relieved my thoughts.

April 10, 2020 12:20 PM

I appreciate Dr. Patel's patience and understanding. She always helps to calm my fears by answering any questions or concerns I may have.

April 6, 2020 5:28 PM

always a good experience with this provider

April 6, 2020 4:10 PM

was a phone call visit to talk about my pain management and the surgery that was recommended by a specialist and my need for a second opinion. she listened and offered advice explaining why she wants to do what she does. very easy to talk to and be open with

April 6, 2020 4:10 PM

good

April 5, 2020 7:35 AM

Dr. Patel is an opened minded and talented doctor. Her bedside manner is one of the best. I work in healthcare and often find myself avoiding my own appointments. I enjoy Dr. Patel and that really helps to make future care seem less demanding.

April 1, 2020 1:57 PM

This was a phone visit due to ongoing COVID 19 precautions. Dr Patel called right on time and was as pleasant as she is in person. This was a follow up due to lung issues from aspiration during a surgery at the end of Feb. All of my questions were answered.

April 1, 2020 1:57 PM

My only complaint regarding Advocate Dryer is the lack of mental health Doctors available. It is a average of 3 month wait to get into see a counselor or psychologist. A lot changes in 3 months, once someone decides they need help, they are pretty much giving up and need to be seen sooner rather than later. Dr Patel has been great with working with me and recommendations from a counselor I pay cash for out of network. I just wish I could keep everything in network.

March 16, 2020 8:03 PM

i had a good experience

March 16, 2020 2:39 PM

The phone service during the day and after hours is not acceptable to me. I was cut off and hung up on by the system. I was upset about a lab report but got no help. I was forced to hang up twice and then gave up. Eventually I received an email from my doctor. There should be a phone number that would connect to someone. Maybe it's your system that needs to be upgraded

March 16, 2020 2:25 PM

I absolutely love Dr. Patel! She is amazing.

March 9, 2020 5:59 PM

Dr Patel is the one of the two best doctors I have ever had. she never rushes, ALWAYS listens . Kind. Considerate. Caring. She is definitely a stand out .

March 9, 2020 5:59 PM

excellent care

March 8, 2020 8:35 PM

Dr is very friendly explains everything ,

March 7, 2020 8:49 AM

really like my Doc and think she is very knowledgeable about a lot of things.

March 2, 2020 9:18 PM

I was very satisfied with my office visit with Dr. Patel.

February 29, 2020 1:02 AM

Dr Patel is the best doctor I have ever had at Dryer and I really like her. She takes time with me and she answers all my questions & she doesn't forget who I am or my condition. She's very pleasant to me and she LISTENS and I like that.

February 29, 2020 1:02 AM

I really like Dryer. From the receptionists, nurses, and doctors they're all concerned and treat a person with respect too when needed & helpful.

February 27, 2020 9:30 AM

Dr. Patel is wonderful. She is caring, thoughtful & takes as much time with you as needed - Best doctor I have had. Love her!!

February 26, 2020 6:05 PM

excellent! Dr. Patel has extraordinary bedside manner and is very welcoming. thank you so much!!

February 24, 2020 6:00 PM

Dr. Patel is always a great listener and addresses all of my questions with respect. when I message her, she gets back to me the same day.

February 24, 2020 4:44 PM

I love how Dr. Patel takes time with her patients. That seems to be rare these days and I never feel rushed during my appointment with her. It gives us the time to talk about everything I want and she also brings up things I hadn't thought of to discuss.

February 17, 2020 6:15 PM

She does a great job of explaining and checking everything. She answers my questions without hesitating.

February 17, 2020 3:54 PM

Dr. Patel was caring and understanding, was proactive about safeguarding against a recurrence.

February 17, 2020 3:54 PM

Dr. Patel took over my care as PCP after Dr. X left. I still miss X quite a bit, but I'm consistently surprised at Dr. Patel's preparedness; she will review years of my charts to establish a baseline and be better prepared with facts and historical trends from my chart than even _I_ am whenever i see her for a routine care visit.

February 15, 2020 2:58 PM

This provider is excellent. I never feel rushed during our meeting. Very thorough explanations and recommendations. Genuine concern.

February 13, 2020 12:18 PM

very good last time I went to see Dr Patel she's excellent.

February 13, 2020 12:18 PM

January 28, 2020 1:37 PM

She is by far the best physician I have encountered.

January 27, 2020 2:54 PM

This is a new patient visit -- I changed Primary Care doctors. She was great.

January 25, 2020 3:53 PM

Dr Patel is very nice and personable, and spent a long time with me.

January 25, 2020 2:10 PM

Dr. Patel is very thorough with me and she asks me the right questions. She scheduled my memogram and other tests that I need to complete

January 6, 2020 3:04 PM

I am very happy with Dr. Patel

January 4, 2020 10:50 AM

Nurse was extremely nice and professional.

January 3, 2020 12:12 PM

I like Dr. Patel. I would like her to order basic labs before appointment so we could discuss results at visit.

September 22, 2019 7:00 PM

August 23, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Patel by far has been the best IM doctor I have been associated with.

To be able to trust your doctor can take some time, but with Dr. Patel she earned that right from day one.

August 21, 2019 7:00 PM
