I have known Dr. Umesh Patel both personally and professionally for many years . Dr. Patel is a very caring and compassionate cardiologist whose reputation speaks for itself. Dr. Patel gives sufficient amount of time and attention to each patient. His concern for the patients is evidenced by his holistic approach to patient care. Based on my experience, I can say that CardioMed is a patient centric clinic, focused mainly on quality outcome. His outstanding clinical and administrative staff members can make patients’ visit a pleasant experience. I would highly recommend Dr. Patel to any one in need of cardiovascular care. He is a great physician.

I would recommend Dr. U. Patel to anyone that is seeking a professional, caring, diligent and compassionate physician who will provide the best care that any cardiologist could possibly provide. I know him on a personal level as well as a professional level and he goes beyond expectations to help someone out by providing them with his knowledge with specific details and guidelines. I have seen him interact with his patients and he is always respectful and comforting to their every need. If my family lived here in Louisiana I would definately recommend them see Dr. Umesh Patel, he is the greatest!!

Dr. Patel is extremely thorough, compasionate, and a very well educated physician. He has a wonderful bedside manner and welcome's questions and listens to his patients. He will definitely drive his point across when it comes to the well being of your heart and your health. Dr. Patel goes the extra mile by providing articles, books, or even nutrionist to help his patients stay on the right track. If you’re in need of a great Cardiologist even if it's just to get a check-up, Dr. Patel is one of the best and I would and do entrust my heart to him.
