    How was your appointment with Dr. Patel?

    Dec 14, 2019
    Dr. Patel and her office have always been nothing but wonderful, caring people. I was having a time with my thyroid and with Dr. Patel and Jennifer, I feel as though I have found angels on earth. Not to long back I had a health scare and Jennifer called me at home to tell me to get to the hospital a.s.a.p. I do not live in the Lexington area, it was after hours that the problem was brought to their attention and still I got a call from her home, expressing concern for my health. I don't know what is going on with the office now, other than I will no longer be able to see Dr. Patel...………...it's a sad day and a real loss for me on this one. I can only hope to find someone that I can trust again as I did Dr. Patel and her staff.
