Anonymous's Story Poor Fair Good Very Good Excellent Dr Nelish Patel was fantastic! He reconstructed my Achilles Tendon and did the FHL tendon transfer to give it added strength. His demeanor and patience in answering all of my questions was commendable to say the very least! He took all the time necessary to make sure that I understood exactly everything he told me, both before and after the surgery. I came to him looking for a second opinion on the surgery I needed and I’m glad I did. The first doctor I had seen told me I would be out of work for at least 5 months, but Dr Patel assured me I would not miss more than 12 weeks. I was back to work just 9 weeks after the surgery.
