Dr. Patel has a kind, calm demeanor which puts you at ease. I have terrible anxiety but felt calm, reassured and confident in his abilities throughout the procedure. The results were amazing. He walks you through the entire process and is there for you even after the procedure. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Patel.
