    How was your appointment with Dr. Patel?

    Aug 18, 2022
    Dr. Patel patiently tries to determine the source of your pain and she makes the best recommendations. She is professional, talented and pleasant. The system is the Provident Health Care System which is an inane bureaucracy. When you call you get ten minutes of voice-mail, numerous legal admonitions, and repetitive warnings about COVID and sometimes, suicide. But Dr. Patel is great in a field where sometimes the only answer is that you're getting old.
