very good...Ive already have given positive word of mouth referrals to other people.
I appreciate his sense of humor. Was not in any pain during my procedure.
I told my family members that they should also try Dr Patel
I get very nervous going to the dentist. I have bad teeth and need a lot of work done. He was very respectful and didnt judge me.
He made sure that I understood what was going to happen, and if I had questions, he answered them for me.
I love how he hums while working on my teeth it comforting. Dr. Patel has been my favorite @ Dental Associates - he truly is knowledgeable & easy to understand.
when he finished telling me all that he was going to do I felt safe. He has a good bedside manner.
Dr. Patel is so nice and explained the procedure beforehand and during. Even cracked a joke and made me laugh. May have been a small gesture but it helped. I was nervous :).
He was thorough
Dr. patel such a nice person did a great job!
He was very funny
The dentist was AWESOME!! He spent as much time as need to answer all my questions. He used language that was very appropriate. I am SO happy he is my dentist.
I was having an old, large filling replaced - Dr. Patel thoroughly explained that if my root or nerve were an issue it may result in a root canal - made me aware of possibility. I appreciated that!
Dentist Patel was amazing. best care I have gotten here in the last 25 years
I had never seen Dr. Patel before as I got in due to a cancelation. I didnt feel like he cared about me or about how much pain I was in. He is not very personable. He did the exam and told me I had 2 options, root canal and crown or extraction. Since a crown is SO expensive and you expect payment up front, I had no choice but to choose an extraction. I couldnt get in for that to be done until Monday, 4 days later. He told me to take ibuprofen. I told him I jad been and it did nothimg for the pain. He didnt seem to care. i explained my top and bottom jaw bones hurt, the pain went to my ear and acrossy head. He said antibiotics were not needed. I left there upset and still in pain. I went to urgent care because there was no way I could take that pain for 4 more days. They prescribed an antibiotic, Naproxen, and 5 hydrocodone pills. The provider literally said she felt bad for me because of how much pain I was in.
Dr. Patel goes above and beyond duty and is a very pleasant person to be around. Great sense of humor. Kind, empathetic, a good listener. Very skillful and trustworthy.
It was a very PLEASANT & SATISFACTORY treatment.
Did very good work.
I was extremely nervous, shaking and in pain. Talked to me like I was a adolescent and I could just stop the shaking. talked over me and not to me. I seemed to annoy him. I was in a lot of pain after and he said I shouldnt be so I felt like he was not listening. I do not think I will be going back
Dentist very nice personality. Very gentle.
Everything went well except the assistant and dentist didnt put the dental sunglasses on me!! I had to look into the bright light the entire time of my exam. I thought it was normal not to wear a pair during the exam.
Dr. Patel is by far the best dentist in thoroughness, clarity, care, concern, calmness, and expertise I have ever been the patient of. I am a loyal patient of his.
My dentist was fantastic!! Ive never had such a thorough dental exam. I didnt feel rushed and he explained all his findings and recommendations in a simple, clear manner.
dentist very good
Dr. Patel really provided detailed choices as well as best choice.
the Dentist has a very good technique of distracting your attention while giving you the pain killer with a hypodermic ( Im not a fan of needels )
great very professional
Hailey and the doctor were very professional and personable.
Dr. Patel took time to thoroughly explain treatment options. He made us feel quite comfortable. Very polite and caring. It was a nice experience. My son really liked him and he really hates going to the dentist.
Dr. Patel is a great communicator
I was more than impressed. I thought I would need braces ror my issue, and while he agreed, he offered to grind a tooth down that was cutting into my tongue. This worked great, and I walked out all done. A good man.
Always cheerful, singing or humming a tune, but serious, genuinely concerned and efficient.
He was soooooooo good and nice....Excellent young man

Dr. Patel took extra time to explain the procedure and my options.

First time with dentist.
Dr. Patel did a very good job this visit. It hasn't always been this way...glad to see he is improving or has improved his empathy and caring for his patient.
This dentist I had for this particular treatment did a nice job :)
Explained everything completely.
My mouth was frozen before my old filling was removed. ...pain for almost three weeks. The Dentist checked my mouth & explained I must have bitten down on my tongue while numbed & it's healing now.
Second time I've seen this dentist and I am very pleased with him.
she thought the dentist was very nice.
I feel very comfortable with Dr. Patel. He has a great chair-side manner and puts me at ease, which is difficult to do when I'm in a dentist chair.
everything was great
Always RESPECTFUL & friendly.
I was extremely satisfied with my dentist & his assistants.
Dr. Patel was fantastic! He is excellent at explaining the procedure and the next steps if necessary. He is very approachable and kind. He is very good at making you feel relaxed and comfortable. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a dentist.
I'm very comfortable with Dr Patel and the staff
First time meeting dentist very nice and very concerned. I hope in the future there will be more confidence with him.
Dentist did not use words that I could understand. Also failed to explain how to prevent cavities in the future.
Dr Patel is wonderful. He's personable, friendly and I feel confident that he is a excellent dentist.
I was very worried about leaving my dentist after 23 years. Dr. Patel took all those worries away.
Dr. Patel is one of the nicest Dr's I have ever known.
Only bad experience I had was that when they were giving me the numbing shot he accidentally shot a nerve... which was really painful. But overall good experience.
Dr. Patel did a great job of answering my questions and putting me at ease. He has a great chairside manner.
Dr. Patel is so kind and thorough. I was very comfortable and confident in his exam.
He was very good. Even joked with me to make me feel more at ease.
Dr. Patel is the best dentist I have ever visited. He makes me very comfortable and does great work.
I was happy to finally find a place that would work with my teeth and not say " you don't need work done " and you are giving me different options to choice from. Which in the long run will let me smile without embarrassment with a missing tooth and uneven teeth....So Thank You
He told me not to chew on the side I had a filling in until the numbing was gone. I chewed on it the next day and my tooth broke off (not happy).
The dentist was very kind and understood my fears and helped calm me down and feel at ease. Thank you!
wonderful attitude and personality
I was SO nervous & scared when I went in but the dentist Dr. Patel was sincerely patient & honest & caring. Very pleasant man!
I understood what was going on completely
Dentist took all measures to identify bad tooth was very polite.
Dr. Patel was very informative and helpful.

A good experience so far across the Board.
Very good team.
Everything are good.
staff was most courteous
doctor patel is very caring and helpful in explaining the situation. always upbeat
keep up the great work, i recommend you to all i know.
Great serves. I had called in about a cracked tooth. They got me in and when the dentist confirmed that it was, he fixed the tooth.
Everybody was friedly and very helpful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dentist seemed inexperienced with procedure.
I felt the dentist was new and unsure of what he was doing.
I was helped with my needs and everything was explained to me for both methods of repair that could be done. Then I made my choice.
Have used Dental Associates for over 20 yrs.
My daughter was scheduled for a crown. The dentist said since she was under 16 years of age and the filling he put in the tooth was holding up well, she didn't have to have the crown that day. That was good news because I didn't have to spend $800, but it seemed like I made an unnecessary trip to the dentist. But it was good to know that the filling in her (root canal) tooth should hold up for a while.
Everything ran smoothly and on schedule. Very little wait
I have a positive initial reaction. My only reason for good, rather than very good is to reserve my opinion outside of my initial reaction. I have no way of knowing precisely how thorough he was but I have confidence that it was positive.
I have already recommended your services and believe I have someone who will be scheduling an appointment soon.
This was my 2nd or 3rd visit - root canal and crown - and I felt the dentist did a great job. However, I felt because my treatment was closing, and I had not scheduled anything further, he was not as interested as when I first began tx.
From the time I walked into the clinic until I left, I felt right at home. It was a very pleasant experience. Not once did I feel pressured, rushed, or uncomfortable.
He was very personable and had a wonderful sense of humor. I felt very confident in his knowledge of what needed to happen with my teeth. He also did not suggest any unnecessary treatment.
I wish you had a rating higher than "very good"
I walked in, and was seen right away!
Dentist is a dr. from India, so hard to listen. I have had extractions before, but the pain shots did not work now I am afraid to come here again.
Nice man I'm sure. Dr. Patel is good, but the extracting with numbing was not working.
Temp. crown came out 2 days after she put it in.
Everybody seemed to care about your wellness. Made me feel comfortable and relaxed. Thank you!
Pleasant receptionist, dental assistant, doctor.
Excellent manners & professionalism.
Tooth ached - 2nd visit for problem.
Very pleased with the dentist and his assistant. They explained everything before, during, and after the filling of my two cavities. I felt very comfortable with them.
I never saw the dentist at all. No one explained anything to me or said I could go back with my 11 year old son. They just said they were small cavities and it would be fine. Afterwards, they said it went fine. They failed to tell me they struck a nerve
Dr. Petal is wonderful.
It was hard to understand him. He seemed to just assume that the most expensive treatment (crown & root canal) would be necessary.
Still in pain.
A cavity was found by the hygienist and not the dentist. Exam was done prior to the cleaning. I don't believe this should have happened.
I think Dr. Patel is great.
As good as a 'dental' experience can be.
Felt the dentist was VERY rushed and did not take the time to thoroughly diagnose & explain my condition. Not very impressed.
I enjoyed how Dr. Patel hums off & on while doing his job, as I've been a singer all of my life. Dr. Patel is really swell!
One visit is hard to make a honest opinion
He was great.
Didn't see the dentist since I was there to have a break in my denture repaired -
Everything was good
Patel was super friendly and trustful so was his assistant zoua
Thorough in examination and procedures that were performed. I really appreciate what they did for me.
Dr. Patel was very curtious and made me feel at ease.
Dentist unavailable at scheduled time by at least 1/2 hour.
Dr. Patel has outstanding skills of making a patient feel welcome, confident, relaxed and well informed. I truly enjoyed working with him and his technician. She too was exceptional. Outstanding.
