There is no publicly available rating for this care provider for one or more of the following reasons:
  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 30 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.
  3. He or she is a community provider, not a Geisinger-employed provider. Community providers tend to see patients in their own private outpatient practices, which we do not survey.

I have a pretty rare cancer that Dr Patel has called in specialists to help me with in Hershey. It is his professionalism that gives me confidence to continue on this journey. I have much confidence in him and actually prefer him over the other doctors because there is truly a caring heart in this man. You would be doing this community a great favor by never allowing this man to leave this area. One excellent doctor!

Dr. Patel covered all the treatment clearly & thoroughly. We got a second opinion & Dr Patel FAR exceeded what we told by the other doctor.

He already had plan set and whether you understand it or not you are going to follow his plan. No questions answered with the knowledge they know about your records.

Dr.Patel is excellent!!

First of all...Dr Nilesh Patel is by far one of the most caring and down to earth doctors that I've been to. His overall concern for me in all areas of treatment has been refreshing. In a day and time when it would be easy to be treated as a number it is great to feel connected to your doctor and be confident that he is just as concern about you and your well being. Kudos to Geisinger for men like Dr. Patel and his staff!!
