"Dr. Patel was a very experienced and professional surgeon and I always felt I was informed and in very capable hands. He was highly recommended and I was very happy with my outcome. "
-- Jackie Benson, Aortic Valve, Valve Replacement, Root Replacement, 10/21/2021
"Dr. Patel did this procedure on my husband this year at U of Michigan. We were so relieved to have him be Denny’s surgeon again as he did his first aorta and valve repair back in 2011.
Dr. Patel is very nice, explained things in a way you can understand and very competent. My daughter and I know at least 4 other people that he did aneurysm surgery on and they were all happy with their outcomes.
He is a great surgeon with the best team and the best bedside manner."

"Could not be a better surgeon or human being than Dr. Patel to analyze and treat my heart valve replacement. Superior teacher/educator. I interviewed him on my ReNEW Michigan radio show to help inform others of his kind helpful manner and treatment. It is now more than 6 years later and my annual follow up check was the usual excellent result. His encouragement and positive communication are helpful to my loving kindness mantra for others. His manner is to be sure he explains in non-technical language. Class A surgeon and human being. Larry Eiler. Writer. Speaker. Author. "
