The help I receive has been good. I'd like to have the surgery & move on!
This is a follow-up visit with *Dr. Patel since surgery after scans review. *Dr. Patel is the 'best'.
This clinic visit was probably the best UK Patient experience I have EVER had besides my normal visits with my primary care at UK. The resident knew my background before entering the room and knew about me, Dr. Patel had an excellent bedside manner as well as the resident. They were well informed of what was going on with me and what I was there for before seeing me. They didn't seem "lost" like some providers in the past have. I left there feeling like I mattered and that my issues were important and that they would take the best care of me. I have to reiterate about the resident - she was TOTALLY AWESOME!! I have never been wowed by a resident at UK before until yesterday. She is top notch!!! I hope we keep her going forward!!!
All Good!DAre you happy with the care you received from this provider?
