After a very unpleasant experience at a "gastro-enternologist" ,(with a different Dr.), I was so very pleased and felt comfortable with Dr .Patel and I Know I am in a very professional and competent group. Dr Patel eased my concerns and explained everything I needed to know..I look forward to my continued care with him and his "team"--everyone was top 10!

I was unable to get an gastro appointment in the Somerset/Johnstown area where I live. I have a UPMC insurance and decided to call the Monroeville office. The receptionist was very accomodating and had an appointment for me within 2 weeks. It was well worth the over 1 hour drive. I arrived early, easily checked in and was in the door within 10 minutes. Dr. Patel was super. I never felt rushed with him and we had a good discussion about my confusing symptoms. He gave me a lot of insight into the problem and we agreed on a course to follow.
