Dr. Harshit Patel has several locations for his practice (Allergy, Asthma & Sinus Center of Long Island) in Hicksville, Brentwood, Babylon, etc. there are others but I have personally been to all three of the locations I listed. When I initially went for my consultation (an appointment I should have made six months before I actually did) they scheduled me on the SAME DAY that I called, for an evening appointment. Working in the medical field myself, I was appreciative of the fact that they were able and willing to accommodate me on such short notice -with a new patient appointment none the less. I did have to drive to the Hicksville location for this appointment, which is no longer where I am seen because it's quite a distance from home/work, but that's where the physicians were seeing patients that evening and I was feeling so miserable I would've driven to Manhattan if I had to. I was given a complete new patient work up at my first appointment that evening, they ran all necessary tests, gave me the results, formulated a treatment plan, and sent me home with a dose of steroids to alleviate my symptoms immediately while I began the treatment process. I've since seen Dr. Patel as well as many (if not all) of the other attending PA's. For over a year now I have visited the office weekly for injections and on a few occasions I've asked to speak with the Doctor/one of the PA's for a concern or question, and I am never disappointed. Dr. Patel, the staff -always smiling, always pleasant. Always genial, speaking to patients like they're real humans with feelings. And as for my allergic and non-allergic rhinitis that was virtually impeding my quality of life in conjunction with my year round allergies, they've since ceased to exist. I feel it is worth mentioning that due to the location of some of the offices, for example the one I regularly visit in Babylon, which is an older residential home transformed into rental space for medical professionals, you may not walk in and be "wowed" by what you see. The building isn't sparkling with shiny new floors and expensive art work hanging from the walls of the exam rooms. And you will not be given an ipad to keep yourself entertained while you wait. If you're even half way intelligent you'd know not to judge a book by it's cover and that these are not the things which are most important however again, from working in the medical field myself and reading the comments patients leave on their satisfaction survey's such as they "didn't enjoy our magazine selection" or the "TV in the waiting room was not big enough," I feel it's note worthy to add that I'd rather be a patient of a practice like Dr. Patel's in a hut in Tanzania, Africa than to be seen in a state of the art facility by some other physicians I've encountered.
