"First appointment today was with Dr Patel. Very professional and helped troubleshoot my issues. It was a step up from my prior GI doctor and to top it off, he had an unbelievable staff working with him. From the ladies behind the desk to the person taking my vitals, they set the bar high for other GI offices."
"Dr Patel took the time to describe the procedure and answer my questions. He listened to my concerns and allowed me to make decisions prior to the procedure as to what I did and did not want done should they find anything."
"Best gastro I've been to. I've had gut issues for decades. No other gastro tested as thoroughly as Dr Patel. He really listened to me and discovered a congenital condition I've been living with my whole life. Life changing!"
"Dr. Patel is very caring to patients. His office always follow up with patients status, condition and called to remind you for an appointment. I’m glad that my mom is one of his patients. My mom is 89 years old had many gallstones. She was admitted to another hospital but the doctor there couldn’t help her to remove the gallstones due to her age. I’m very fortunate that Dr. Hyser recommend Dr. Patel. He is able to relief my mom’s pain and remove all the gallstone. She is so happy and so touch by that. Thank you so much Dr. Patel. I would recommend Dr. Patel. He is very confident on what he does and very professional."
"I encountered Dr. Patel while hospitalized for a required procedure. II was impressed with his thoroughness, concerns, and bedside manner. Because of this experience, I returned to him as a patient and have been equally satisfied as such. I highly recommend him."
"Dr. Samir Patel is an EXCEPTIONAL doctor who exhibits impeccable bedside manners! He is very smart, passionate about his patients, and he doesn’t talk down to people. He explains things in a very concise manner. He is direct but in a respectful way. I have been his patient since 2014. When I first saw him, I was very nervous as I was experiencing some colon issues. He held my hand prior to me receiving anesthesia and made me feel at ease. I had the colonoscopy without any complications. Today, 5/18/2022, I had my routine colonoscopy. Nothing has changed about Dr. Patel. He is still a wonderful doctor! A few things that are really impressive are his staff, each time I visit him my husband is with me and Dr. Patel never treats him as if he is a fixture in the room, he talks to both of us, and he answers any questions my husband has, after the procedure he always give me my medical report with photos, and he has a sense of humor. If I could give him 100 stars I would."
"Dr. Patel discovered that I still had a Stent in the duct of Pancreas and also informed me of Barrettes esophagus and treated me for a fungal infection that previous GI Drs didn't. So for the best care go to him."
"Dr. Patel is one of my favorite doctors. He’s very patient, he takes the time to answer all of my questions, he explains things really clearly, and it’s obvious that he has a genuine care for his patients. I would recommend him to anyone who was looking for a GI."
"Dr. Patel listened and treated me much more politely and conscientiously than my first GNT. I'm very pleased to have found him. Last year he performed surgery on and repaired my hiatal hernia, and I'm very pleased with the results. He's very focused and attentive."
"Dr. Patel is the real deal. Not only very good at what he does, his bedside manner is wonderful, his staff is wonderful and this what you need. I would Recommend Dr. Patel to anyone in need of a GI doctor."
"I have been a patient of Dr.Patel for over a year receiving treatment and education for a number of symptoms and questions. Dr. Patel is a competent, knowledgeable, and a caring specialist. He emphasizes patient education as well as care, modern medicine as well as natural treatments, and a wholistic approach to health care as well as a focus on specific problems. I recommend him most highly."
"Dr. Patel has been great, I started seeing him after being referred by my primary care Doctor in 2019. His front office team has always been very kind as well and I feel that he really listens to all of my symptoms. Dr. Patel’s greatest quality to me is his honesty. He is capable of giving tough feedback, which may be hard to hear but you know is in your best interest. I have never felt pressured by him to do unnecessary procedures or take medicine i didn’t want to take. When I have asked about switching medicines, he has been knowledgeable about them and open to working with me to find the treatment which is right for me. He has performed an upper endoscopy and a bravo test on me and has informed me of the various options I have to treat my GERD. I trust him as my gastroenterologist and would recommend him to anyone having issues similar to my own. Thank you, Dr. Patel! Sam Sailer"
"My first experience with IGI was a very positive one. Dr. Patel was extremely kind and attentive. He answered all my questions and I never felt that he was in a hurry to end the visit. The Lab people Alan, and Patty were very good at what they did. My blood was drawn effortlessly which is unusual for me. They were very friendly an helpful. I felt like everyone including the front desk truly cared about my well being."
"First met with Dr. Kaiser on September 28, 2020 for a consultation regarding intestinal problems I was experiencing. After a lengthy conversation about my concerns, he suggested we begin with a Colonoscopy then get the results and go from there. I had the colonoscopy a week later, October 7th, and was attended to by Dr. Patel. Procedure went well, and I was contacted by I.G. office nurse on Friday, October 9th that my diagnosis was Lymphocytic Colitis and a steroid was being ordered for me that I was to take daily for 8 weeks and that would hopefully take care of the inflammation problem in my large intestine. But alas, my insurance would not cover the cost of the medicine even though it was generic. At this point, October 13th I am still awaiting a response from Dr. Patel's office, or Dr. khaiser's office, or Walgreens regarding what the next step is."
