My husband Rick was blessed with "heavy eyelids" which interfered with his eyesight and peripheral vision. It is something his father and other family members also deal with. We heard Dr Patel was the best and so met with him and we were so impressed with his knowledge, concern, and great care he gave my husband. He noticed that my husbands forehead muscle was thick and heavy and would continue to put pressure on the eyelids so we chose to do the eyelid and forehead muscle lift surgery. This is a procedure that he created and executed beautifully. He not only can see better but he looks younger and not so tired and old. WE LOVE the knowledge and experience Dr Patel has and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND him to anyone!
I have always had a droopy eye. And no one has ever been able to give me a reason. As i got older the ptosis got worse. I was referred to Dr. Patel and he was able to give me an answer right away. He suggested this ptosis repair surgery that has had a great outcome! Not only is the appearance better but it has also helped with my vision!
Very impressed with the results. Everything from the beginning went smoothly. Dr. Patel is very professional yet still extremely friendly.
Dr. Patel saved my sight.Because my eyes had been bothering me, I was referred to Dr. Patel. He told me I have Graves' ophthalmopathy, which would take about three years to resolve. This condition causes eye muscles to swell and often the eyes bulge. In about 5% or less of cases, the muscle swelling causes pressure on the optic nerves resulting in visual issues. This was happening to me. I started on drugs but my condition worsened.In March 2016 Dr. Patel referred me to neuro ophthalmology and I started on prednisone. In April 2016 my neuro ophthalmologist, Dr. Judith Warner, prescribed 3 infusions of 1000 mg of prednisone. In spite of the drug therapy, my condition continued to worsen.By the end of April 2016 vision in my right eye was almost gone. Dr. Warner consulted with Dr. Patel about surgical options. On May 4, 2016 Dr. Patel reviewed images. That evening I had a CT scan and Dr. Patel scheduled surgery for the morning of May 6, 2016. Unfortunately, some of Dr. Patel's eye lid surgery patients were delayed because of emergency surgery necessary to save my sight. Dr. Patel performed bilateral orbital decompression surgery and the vision in my right eye was restored.Dr. Patel told me this disease would take 3 years to resolve and he has been right. After surgery May 6, 2016 I recovered well but the disease continued to flare. In May and June I saw Dr. Warner who was concerned and prescribed 3 high dose infusions increased daily prednisone dosage. My condition worsened and Dr. Patel performed another emergency bilateral optic nerve decompression surgery on July 1, 2016.Dr. Patel and Dr. Warner met with Dr. Yin Hitchcock, radiation oncologist. In July and August 2016 I had radiation therapy under Dr. Hitchcock's direction.In September 2016 my condition began to stabilize. Since then, Dr. Robert Hoffman has performed 3 surgeries to resolve the double vision I have struggled with since May 2016. Now I am adjusting to my "new normal" as Dr. Warner calls it. My vision is not what it was 2+ years ago but I can see. I am very grateful to Dr. Warner and Dr. Patel for my sight.
I have gone to Dr Patel for 2 surgeries. About 4 years ago, I had what I would call an eyelid lift. At the time, Dr Patel knew it would not solve all of my problems, but it was all my insurance would pay for. Then, this year, my optometrist noted that my forehead and heavy eyebrows were blocking my vision again. I was referred back to Dr Patel. In every interaction, Dr Patel is eternally happy and upbeat. He greets me with a big smile and kind words. He works (and talks) quickly and efficiently. I exudes confidence when you are with him. For this most recent surgery, Dr Patel explained that my scars would be hidden in one of my forehead "folds" (not sure if that is the proper term). I scheduled my surgery, and went in with no fears. The surgery went well, the recovery was smooth. The results have been to or beyond my expectations. I would re-do this procedure again in a moment. Dr Patel is the best! (and look how much happier i am in the post surgery photo!)
I had lines around my mouth because I was a smoker. I hated the way the lines looked old and puckered. I was looking like my mother! I could see the lines in photographs. My aesthetician was amazed at the result of the laser treatment Dr. BCK Patel did for me. My lines are gone and no-one can tell I had them. My aesthetician showed me a photo she had taken before which showed my lines and I was amazed. I wish I had had these treated a long time ago as I love the way my lips look now.
