I was recently diagnosed with lung cancer and referred to Dr. Patel. He will perform a bronchoscopy [...]. I will be given a general anesthetic for the procedure. Before I left his office, I asked [...], Dr. Patel's nurse. to have Dr. Patel write a prescription for me because I always get horribly nauseated and vomit for days following general anesthesia. Dr. Patel's nurse told me "he doesn't like to write prescriptions" and that I should ask my primary doctor to write the prescription. I persisted and said it's only an anti-nausea drug, and she maintained that he doesn't like to write prescriptions, but she would ask him anyway. She said at the most, he might write a prescription for "a couple of pills" but, if I wanted more than that, I would have to ask my primary. I told her it didn't seem right for me to have to ask my primary for a prescription since Dr. Patel was doing the procedure, and the nurse told me maybe I could ask the anesthesiologist for some anti-nausea medication. Dr. Patel finally wrote a prescription for me, but only for a few tablets. [...] I can't understand why Dr. Patel is so reluctant to write a prescription for an anti-nausea drug, and why he begrudgingly only gave me a few tablets, instead of enough to last me at least three days to ensure I wouldn't be vomiting post-procedure, as is my history.

Dr did not read info I took regarding the problems I have related to his specialty. However, he did prescribe one new med which seems to be helping - but did not discus size of dosage.

Dr. Patel and his team are phenomenal! Prior to my appointment I ended up in the ED with an asthma exacerbation. At my appointment both Dr. Patel and [...] RN took time to go over my ED visit, discuss my medications, create a plan for getting my lung function back to normal, and really support me in making decisions for health and recovery. After the appointment when my symptoms were still bothering me and makin me nervous, the team was amazing at quickly returning my calls and communicating with me about what I should expect, short term goals, and at what point I should reach out for more medical help. I'm an RN myself and this team really exemplifies the mission, vision and values of Providence 100%! They genuinely care and that is rare today.

I was so impressed with Dr Patel! He was prepared for my visit by having reviewed records prior to my apt. He took a lot of time to answer all of my questions and explained everything very well. He is knowledgeable about my rare condition which was made clear as he spoke with me about an upcoming procedure. He was concerned about how I felt and validated some of the questions I came to him with about previous care I had received. I feel I can trust him and am so happy that I was able to get an apt. with him!

Dr Patel was very professional but kind and caring. He was very calming as he explained the procedure he was going to perform on me the next day. His follow up call with pathology results and plan for the next 2 years was very proactive. Appreciated the fact that we can have follow up tests done in Walla Walla and then see him yearly. He said we could discuss results over the phone. Would definitely recommend Dr. Patel to anyone needing a pulmonologist.
