Philosophy Of Care

I believe trust and empathy are fundamental in the development of the patient-physician relationship and I strive to provide the highest quality of care in the most compassionate manner. This is achieved by taking the time to listen, understand, and provide education and guidance, especially when disease can be prevented. I view healthcare as a team effort, one that must include the voice of the patient. I am confident that by building a trustworthy relationship, we can develop a personalized treatment plan with the patients' best interest in mind.

Dr Krunal Patel is very compassionate. He goes through my overall health and meds and I feel he is very proactive regarding my health. I'm glad I made an appointment with him after Dr. ...retired.

When my PCP retired, I wasn't sure what to expect with Dr. Patel. I am older and in his picture he looked so young. BUT my fears were alleviated when I met him. I really like him and respect him. I also trust what he has to say. I don't have to question anything he has to say because he explains everything in detail and in terms that the lay person can understand. He has a good "bed side manner". Extremely intelligent doctor. I have recommended him to many of my friends. It seems like all of our doctors are retiring at the same time.

Dr.Patal showed no concern or empathy for my current health problems, when we went through my health history all he said was that he would let the university doctors deal with it , referring to ...where I go for treatment. This appointment was to establish care , and he did not seem interested in learning about my current health situation and what I have been and currently still dealing with.
