I´ve been a patient of Dr. Patel for eight years. He´s been as good a dentist as I´ve ever had. I believe him to be very competant. I´ve had the gamut of dental needs over this time: crowns, filings, some cosmetic dentistry, and ordinary cleanings. Everything he´s done for me has been done right. When I needed specialized care, he referred me to specialists, rather than doing it himself. He tries hard to be proactive, stressing the importance of proper brushing and flossing. One point that others take as a negative, I view as a positive. Yes, there are usually waits. To me, that means that he doesn´t rush his patients, even if there are those waiting. I certainly do not want him to rush me to get to other patients, so how can I object if he´s not rushing them to get to me? I can´t. It means he´s caring and professional. Bring a book! He´s always said that if something isn´t right, he´ll make it right, and at no extra charge. I´ve never had a service done by Dr. Patel that I was unhappy with. I´ve also found his staff to be friendly, and the office very clean.

I´ve been a patient with Dr. Patel for six years, and my experiences have been consistently positive. The staff is very courteous and takes the time to listen and follow-up on any questions you ask. Dr. Patel takes a lot of time with patients to explain what is happening with your teeth, and why he is recommending a certain type of treatment over another.

I can´t remember how long I have been seeing Tim. I believe I am probably patient number 1 or 2. Tim has performed countless procedures for me, everything from cleanings to cavities to crowns. He has done repair work as well as some outstanding cosmetic work. The thing that I appreciate about Tim is that he always communicates very well about what he recommends, we talk about cost and options, and he let´s me be involved with the decision. I would certainly recommend Tim and his team to anyone.

I don´t think anyone really enjoys going to the dentist, but Dr. Patel and his staff at DPDG make the experience a positive one. PROs: clean office friendly staff time with Dr. Patel each visit early morning appointments available (before 9am) CONs: difficult to get last minute appointments substantial amount on time spent waiting in waiting room
