Patel is a good Doctor, but perhaps not as proactive as the specialists that I have seen / consulted with at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. Overall Care from him and from Tri-City Cancer Center has been very good. The one problem area that I still have with Kadlec is scheduling, particularly having them get back to me and difficulty with getting a change in an appointment date / time when I need to.

Dr Patel not only discussed the reason I was there to see him (Pulmonary Embolism issue) but also took the time to explain and look into other medical issues I brought to his attention. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a truly caring physician.
