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.

I always sing Dr. Patel's praises to people with whom I share my troubling physical problems. He is doing the best he can for me, in a difficult situation, and answers my questions clearly and honestly.

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!!

I have recommended Dr. Nileash Patel to a friend and I would do so again, if needed. He is a caring & courteous person and explains any questions I may have in terms I can understand. Very good doctor.

Husband and both daughters (one a nurse and the other a pharmaceutical scientist) where allowed to accompany me into the examining room. Their presence later helped me when they were able to remind me of important information shared. My emotional state kept my mind wandering and I very much appreciated their presence.

I thought Dr. Patel was outstanding! I feel very confident that I have chosen the best provider possible.

Dr. N Patel is an outstanding oncologist, as well as, a very caring person. I am a three yr survivor, and I am so thankful to have Dr. Patel taking care of me through this journey!

I do not like the idea that my Doctor has me see him before my blood work is done. I would sooner have the blood work done first and then the doctor and I can go over my blood work together during my appointment.
