And that he will be there for the duration of the operation and part of my aftercare. I felt as if I was important and Dr Patel took me seriously I wasn’t just another number, That had come into his office that day. I thank everyone that took the time and effort in helping me in my speedy recovery. I honestly wish Dr Patel Good fortune in his work. I’m glad it was no one other then Dr Patel.”
