  • This is a very good medical office. Jonathan the manager and the whole entire staff are great at making sure patient care is handled. Wait times are reasonable because Dr. Patel, Tim and Phat don't want to rush you. They want to hear you out.

  • Dr.Patel performed my finger surgery. I was very stressed as I only had one week to find an orthopedic surgeon. I couldn’t schedule any surgery as everyone was busy and didn’t even care about my hand. I stopped by Dr.Patel’s office and I was told he would contact me to let me know when he would do my surgery. He did reach out to me, very considerate and professional. Is very hard to find a doctor that really cares for humans and humans health in NYC but definitely he is one of a kind. I am impressed and happy that humans like him exist. He is definitely a role model for all doctors. I can’t thank him enough, the surgery went excellent and he has been advising me on how to operate with my hand. I am grateful to him forever. His stuff was very helpful as well!!

  • Dr. Vipul Patel is a great surgeon. He helped me after an accident at work (worker's comp). Staff is friendly & office is clean.

  • My son had a fractured finger. Dr Patel's office was very efficient and treated him with great compassion and expertise. After several weeks in the splint fashioned by Dr Patel's staff, he is back to his normal self. Thank you Dr Patel! I strongly recommend Dr Patel if you are in need of a hand surgeon

  • In 2019 I hurt myself in the gym. Didn’t have insurance until 2020 so couldn’t see anyone till then. Went to see a surgeon at Maimonides bone and joint which is probably 4x as big as dr Patel’s office. Had an mri done and the doctor couldn’t really see anything except maybe a little inflammation even though I was in pain. But he suggested a tfcc debridement. After the surgery he told me to go see the therapist in the same building. Thought it was gonna be serious therapy but it was 5 minutes in one day just showing me exercises to do at home and that was it. Weeks went by and I wasn’t seeing a difference. Told the doc somethings not right but he kept saying it takes time and that I could just come by and get shots but he doesn’t think I’ll have to live with this and there’s no more surgery. I decided to get a second opinion. Saw dr Patel and had probably two different pa’s come and take my history first. Got another mri and right away dr Patel saw the issue. Got an ulnar shortening osteotomy and Tfcc debridement. He also recommended therapy but this was completely different. Ny hand therapy is right upstairs from dr Patel’s office. They take their time run through everything with you for one hour for 1-2 times a week. And thank God after 4 months I’m already seeing a difference.

  • I loved Dr. Patel he was so amazing with my baby. He covered all aspect of her injury and took the time to make sure that she was completely healed. He answered all our questions and concerns. I felt I could trust him. His staff was amazing my baby loved them and she was always confortable with them and with Dr. Patel. I wish every doctor have the same dedication, passion and service as Dr. Patel. 200% recommended to anyone! His office was clean, the bathroom were clean I liked the atmosphere!

  • This place is honestly amazing. Friendly and hard working staff, and Dr. Patel really knows his stuff. Appointments are usually available when you need them, and theres also a physical therapy office upstairs so you can coordinate 2 visits in one trip. They take most insurances, and also workers comp. i’ve been going to this office for almost 2 years now.

  • Dr. Patel and his team took care of me from A-Z all the way from the initial evaluation on my very first visit, until post-surgery follow-ups, (a year later). Always helpful, willing, and ready to make my every visit a great experience. Thank you, Dr. Patel.

  • I can't say enough about how incredible of a surgeon Dr. Patel is. He is smart, calm, and very conservative. He used so many alternative therapies and minimally invasive procedures to help my hand heal after a bad car accident. I saw many doctors along the way but Dr. Patel was clearly on another level.

  • I was referred to Dr. Pater April of 2017 to October 2019. All I can say is he is Awesome!!!! He is caring, patient, empathetic, has integrity, and puts his clients first. My experience was very pleasant and i felt secured. He is very detailed oriented and had great knowledge about my injury. I would recommend him 1000%. After my third surgery the incisions on my hand and wrist healed well...the scaring was minimal, he did a great job. The office staff is kind, respectful and friendly.

  • Excellent service. Everyone was attentive. Listened to the needs of the patient. X-ray, injections, nerve study, including a custom splint, everything was done on site. Was in and out within 1 & 1/2 hour considering all those tests, new patient paperwork and custom splint takes time.

  • Dr Patel helped guide us through a bad burn injury that my son suffered on his hand. He was kind, patient and an effective communicator. He also helped with your other sons elbow injury. I can’t thank him enough!

  • Wrist Injury at work, sent to Dr. Patel by Methodist hospital. I am glad they referred me to him, I have had probably seven office visits and surgery on my wrist. I have always been able to schedule an appointment with ease, the office staff are on top of everything from scheduling to making sure the doctor you see for pre surgery physical takes the insurance you have. Dr. Patel has always listened to my issues responded to the issues and has always asked if I had any questions before the end of the appointment.
    In addition physical therapy is right upstairs
    Very easy to get to by F or R train
    Highly recommended

  • 11/21/19, had an appointment with Dr.Patel.
    I was referred by my PCP's office, I usually like to read the reviews, before embarking on anything. I wasn't too pleased with some of the reviews, but decided to take a chance.
    Today I have proven that it's not everything you read you should believe.
    Got there 1/2, hour before my appointment, because ,I read the long wait you would endure.
    The receptionist handed me the clip board,which I proceeded to fill out, until I noticed that my Insurance was not accepted, I wanted to know why ,because when I made the appointment i was told yes,which was also verified by the Insurance, so what's the change, she said the Doctor will see you. I started to get real nervous, anxiety was setting in,because I don't know how I'm going to pay if the Insurance doesn't, on 15 minutes of my 1/2 hour, wait I was called to see the doctor.
    He advised me that someone from the office had called & left a message, but because I get home late I was not able to return the call.
    Dr. Patel, advised me that no way will he let me come this far & not treat me and to top it off he will not bill me for the visit, and if I do receive a bill should call his office. I was surprised, because I have never heard of a Doctor that exemplifies that kind of service.
    If I could have given Dr.Patel a 10,I would.
    Dr.Patel, I thank you for your professionalism, & your thoughtfulness, may you continue to use your wisdom and knowledge to help others.
    God Bless you your staff & family.

  • Let me start with Dr. Vipul Patel is an amazing doctor. I saw him one day after I broke my left wrist. Getting an appointment was easy, and then meeting the staff and the Dr. Patel,made the wait time (about 45 minutes) worthwhile. As I need my hand for my work, the doctor confidently assured me that surgery was my best option, but made sure to stress, not my only option. After talking me through both options, I went with surgery which was done the next day. All follow up appointments were easy and recovery was simple and quick. I followed instructions, kept my appointments and finally 6 months later, fully back to normal. Thank you to Dr. Patel and his staff for the attention, the comfort which you made me feel when I was there, the ease of being able to reach you and for guiding me through this challenge. I would highly recommend you to all who are looking for hand surgeon.

  • Super friendly and smart doctor. I had a hand injury that wasn't healing so I went to followup with Dr Patel. He diagnosed an issue with my thumb, UCL tear, immediately. Although it wasn't the news I wanted to hear, it required surgery. He understood I am very active and I didn't want to waste time with an MRI so scheduled it asap. He explained the surgery and rehab in detail at the followup and answered my many questions on how to try to shortcut rehab...he prevailed. Great doctor, nice guy, highly recommend.

  • We saw Dr Patel after a less than stellar experience at Ovington Orthopaedics in Bay Ridge, and couldn't have been happier with Dr. Patel. He was terrific with our kids, kind and easygoing, but smart and to the point, with an insightful and clear diagnosis, and put forward a clear treatment plan of the problem with my daughter's arm. We were paying out of pocket as well, and they were able to offer us a discount on an already very reasonable fee. I highly recommend.

  • Today was my first visit and I must say how pleased I am. Let me state, foremost, how terrified I am of doctors, however Dr. Patel and his amazing staff put my fears to rest. From the moment I entered his, Park Slope, office the smiles and warmth of his staff reassured me that I was in the right place.

    Dr. Patel is very professional and is very much in tuned with his patients needs. I am very grateful I ditched my original appointment and headed over to see him instead.

    I will return with my followup after my scheduled surgery.

    I would definitely recommend him to anyone in need of orthopedic services!

  • I had severe back pain and could not move for days. I made my appoint around 11:00 PM the night before and I was able to be seen the next day which was a Saturday. I was taken into the room right away. I spent about 30 minutes at the office and I would say 27 of those minutes were with the doctor. Dr. Patel was very friendly and helpful and explained everything.
