I was very impressed with the time taken to discuss my health issues with Dr Benewal Patel and her medical assistant. They both demonstrated a genuine interest in my problems and were eager to find new methods to solve my problems.

Dr Beniwal-Patel is a wonderful GI. I am very thankful for her and her staff. My adult son is dealing with his colon being removed and colon cancer and she has provided us with suggestions for his future care and welfare.

This was my first appointment with Dr. Beniwal-Patel for ongoing GI issues I have been having for a year. She is a wonderful and caring provider and I finally feel listened to when I talk about the issues I have been having. This is a refreshing change from my prior doctor. I appreciate Dr. Beniwal-Patel's detailed explanations and answers to my questions. I didn't feel like she was rushing me through, but instead she let me ask all the questions I had brought to the appointment. I am happy to continue to see her.

I just wanted to note that while my wait time was longer than 15, the physicians assistants did stop in very early on letting me know beniwall-patel would be late so I'm 100% okay with it being a longer wait! By far beniwall-patel is my favorite doctor, she listened and helped with my pain a few years ago in a way no other doctors had before. Now in my check ups she continues to follow up in a friendly manner as we monitor the situation.

The doctor was one of the very best in paying attention to me and to listening to me and asking me if there were any more questions that she could answer. I definitely appreciated this! She is working toward a resolution to my problems.
