Patient Reviews
  • “I am extremely pleased with the medical services that Dr. Patel, his staff, and Barrington Orthopedics provided to me. I had foot surgery in September and now in December my foot is perfect! I had foot and nerve pain for about two years and pushed off having surgery. I will not wait again if this ever happens to the other foot as I am now pain free! Dr. Patel and his staff truly care about you, your medical condition, and will do everything they can to correct your medical issue.”

    – Marge J.

     

    “Dr. Patel, the nurses, and all the staff are wonderful. Everyone is kind and Dr. Patel is amazing.”

    – Devaki N.

     

    "I don't know how to thank Dr. Patel enough for giving me back my life!  I had previous foot/ankle surgery that left me in worse pain than prior to the surgery.and told the wheelchair was my only alternative. On a pain level of 1-10, my pain level was a 20! And soon would be in a wheelchair. By chance, my sister who works at an insurance  company had heard such great things about Dr. Patel, so I got an appointment. From the first meeting and X-rays and consultation I felt like "I've been saved." Someone cares about ME!  Dr. Patel said after studying my foot X-rays that he could get my pain level down to a 3! I was elated!! He said I was a candidate for a total ankle replacement!! I had the surgery, and 2 days later, I HAD NO PAIN!!!!  Dr. Patel smiled and said he didn't want to give me false hopes, but was confident of the outcome!!!! I have my life back!! I have no pain and I am able to participate in life again!!! THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH, DR. PATEL!!!"

    – Kathleen D.

     

    "My husband was a patient of Dr. Patel. Dr. Patel and his staff are fabulous. He and his nurse Sarah were always sincere, comforting and always had the ability to ease my husbands stress. Dr. Patel is the best doctor I have ever known. I would recommend Dr. Patel to anyone that needs foot/ankle treatment."

    – April C. 

     

    "Dr. Patel and all his staff are wonderful! They listen to what your medical issues are with concern and patience."

    – Theresa B.   

     

    "My 17-yr-old daughter had several bone spurs in her right foot. Dr. Patel examined her and took the time to show us and explain the X-rays and what his recommendation was. He did not push us into surgery, but gave us the information we needed to make our decision to go ahead with the surgery. Prior to and after surgery, he met with us and explained all that we needed to know. We've had follow-up appointments and he continues to be very professional as well as having a great bed-side manner. He is down to earth and extremely personable. My daughter likes him which is very important."

    – Rebecca G. 

     

  • "I came to Barrington Orthopedic Specialists in the middle of my freshman year of college because of a painful bone growth in the back of my heel. In my first appointment, Dr. Patel told me that he would have to perform surgery. I was so scared for my first surgery and the future of my dance career, but Dr. Patel went out of his way to comfort me. He called me Taylor Swift and sang to me as I was falling asleep in the operating room. Even after the surgery, Dr. Patel met with me several times to make sure I was able to walk by the time I went back to school. He understood my goals, as far as recovery, and helped facilitate a plan so I could reach them in a safe and effective way. His compassion made a scary situation bearable, and I couldn’t have asked for a better doctor. I recommend Dr. Patel, and Barrington Orthopedic Specialists, to anyone."

    - Allison R. 

    "I was at a pool party in August of last year and a lady placed her chair on the top of my foot and sat on it. The next day, I could hardly put any weight on it. After my family doctor looked at it, they said it would just take time to heal. I probably just bruised the bone. After not being able to participate in walking activities, such as power walking, which I had done for 20 some years, it was devastating after a short time to have to stop and take off my shoe and rest. My family doctor then told me to go see Dr. Patel, which I did. He examined me and said I needed to take, I believe it was an MRI or CT Scan of my foot. Shortly after, he operated and removed the nerve on the top of my foot. After the surgery and to this date, I have had no pain in that area. Many thanks to Dr. Patel!"

    - Marylou A.

    "This is my second time with Dr. Patel. Three and a half years ago, he did surgery on my foot and the results were excellent. So when I needed the other foot corrected, I naturally went to him again. He did another excellent job and is very easy to talk to  with great bedside manner."

    - Claudia K. 

    "I have seen several doctors here. They all are so wonderful but one sticks out for me and that is Dr. Narendra Patel.  He is an outstanding surgeon.  He had to do some surgery on my left ankle.  He had to move over my bone, fix a tendon and some other things such as a gastric release.  He did a lot of surgery and it took about 2 hrs.  I was in a wheel chair for quite some time I then graduated to a scooter and then to a walking cast.  Throughout my journey from start to finish, I always was treated with respect, dignity, and much kindness.  Dr. Patel always made sure I was okay and doing well.  Never for a minute did I ever doubt his care.  Today, I am doing fine and my foot is much better.  I have some diseases that make it hard for me to heal and I am getting sicker with these.  Even though I have these problems, I know in my heart that Dr. Patel will always be there to fix future problems if they arise.  I would recommend Dr. Patel to anyone that needed treatment with the foot and ankle.  The other doctors are just as good that I have seen but I have a special place in my heart for Dr. Patel.  Thank you from my heart Dr. Patel.  Your patient for life."

    - Mary T.

  • "My story began two years ago before I came to Barrington Orthopedic Specialists. I had a simple surgery for a neuroma by a different group. After the surgery, I kept saying I was in pain, and the response was always, more therapy and I will be fine. I was 58 then, and very active. I biked two or three times a week, 20 miles, and I danced two nights a week for about four hours. I found another group who decided to shorten my two toes. They told me my pain would go away, but it didn't. I went to physical therapy for a year, and then was told it was my scar tissue. So I had another surgery to remove that. I still had severe pain, and still not able to do what I loved to do. I ended up coming to Barrington Orthopedic Specialists, and Dr. Patel listened to me and said, "I think I know what's wrong, but I want you to have an ultrasound." I completed that, and found I had a torn ligament in my toe (possibly cut), he said, I can fix this with another surgery, and you will be fine. It has been three months, and I am dancing and biking again. Not quite where I was, but I am still healing. The difference between Dr. Patel and the other doctors I saw was he listened to what I said, had a plan, and he didn't just guess. He promised me I would dance at my wedding in April, and he was right. I will be able to do that. Thank you so much! I would and have recommended him to anyone who asks, or who I can tell my story to."

    "I had been told that there was nothing that could be done for my ankle after a unsuccessful surgery! Only option was to be in a wheelchair for the rest of my life. I am a very active grandma and was devastated. I had a family member that works for a medical office, and she heard so many positive outcomes by Dr Patel and suggested I get a third opinion! Well, he studied my X-rays and records and said i was a candidate for ankle replacement surgery !! I was in pain daily at a 15 on a scale of 1-10!! My surgery has given me back my life and I am totally pain free!!  I can't thank Dr N. Patel enough."

    – Kathleen D. 

     

    "Excellent as always. 13 years ago Dr. Patel performed ankle surgery on me, his bed side manner and knowledge was never forgotten.He is absolutely the best and works on preventative rather then quick fixes. I was thrilled to be able to see him again, fortunately with a much smaller problem!"

    – Deborah M. 

  • "My son broke his ankle in Sept of 2015 during his first football game of his freshman year. We were devastated. It was a bad break, one that required surgery, screws and plates to get him back in one piece. While my sons football season was over we were looking ahead in hopes of him being able to compete in spring sports. We honestly thought that he would not be able to compete competitively for the remainder of the school year. Dr. Patel, his team and the Physical Therapist at Barrington Orthopedic Specialists provided a treatment plan for my son that was honest, hopeful and positive. Dr. Patel is a wonderful surgeon, his disposition is sincere and comforting. Our Physical Therapist Katie was fun, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. As a result of the exceptional care my son received at Barrington Orthopedic Specialists, he was able to compete in winter and spring sports. My son is currently playing lacrosse as a defender; seeing him run around as if nothing had happened is a blessing. I am truly blessed to have a healthy son. My son is blessed to have had Barrington Orthopedic Specialists as his medical team. Barrington Orthopedic Specialists will forever have our gratitude and will be on our speed dial should we ever need their support again!"

    – Nelly B. 

    "Dr. Narendra Patel recently performed a fusion of my great toe and I am so very pleased with the results. Dr. Patel did a remarkable Achilles tendon repair surgery on my husband, so I was familiar with his reputation and eventually fortunate to be another of his patients. One feels very cared for in the hands of Dr Patel. He exudes confidence in his ability to treat the patient with the highest of respect and has an admirable bedside manner. He explains in detail the procedure, rationale, post-op routine with expectations, all while listening to the patient's questions and concerns. I kept several of his business cards in my purse to give others as they saw me on my wheel scooter during my rehabilitation phase as they questioned who performed the surgery. Dr. Patel's assistant and staff also deserve compliments for their professional manner while providing care. When your foot hurts, your whole quality of life changes and when you can't walk the dog.....everyone suffers. Thanks to the wonderful care given by Dr. Patel and staff, we are all out walking the neighborhood again. I would highly recommend Dr. Patel, and will continue to carry extra business cards to refer his practice because everyone should have the privilege of having a successful surgery performed the first time by the best doctor."

    – Susan M. 

  • "Dr. Patel and his PA, Mo, and his nurse, Sarah, as well a the whole team including the casting team, are absolutely fabulous! I am in healthcare and actually am the COO of a our company, so of course, I have extremely high expectations when it comes to anything related to healthcare. Not only was this team professional, but their bedside manner and ability to ease my stress related to my surgery was remarkable. This team and Dr. Patel wasn't one of those places that just saw patient after patient – they took their time and always answered all my questions, as well as explained everything to me. I was extremely anxious the day of my surgery and Dr. Patel took the time to explain everything beforehand. He and his team made me feel safe and I knew I was in good hands. Dr. Patel is our family doctor. If we ever need anything related to our feet, ankle, etc. He also was my daughter's surgeon previously and WE wouldn't go anywhere else. Thank you."

    - Rupal J.


    "I read online about the procedure I was having (Brostrom) and everyone was saying how painful and horrible their experience was.  I would say just the opposite!  Dr. Patel and his assistant Mr. Patel were wonderful throughout the entire process.  I had to be patient and let my body heal - that was Dr. Patel's advice as I was a bit impatient and wanted to be up and about right away.  But heeding his instructions was the best thing because I'm a 100% and so happy with my results!  Katie was great as a PT and looking back it all was easy! Thanks Dr. Patel to you and your staff for getting me running again and having no more restrictions because of my ankle!"

    – Kay Y

     

    "I have had several surgeries now on my left foot. Since I have some illnesses such as, RA, sjogren's, diabetes II and more, it has made it more difficult for Dr. Patel to get my foot fixed because of all the complications due to these illnesses. The last operation he did was so successful that I am walking almost completely normal and with minimal pain. He completely reconstructed my foot when it was so full of arthritis and totally collapsed due to torn tendons and ligaments. He is a wonderful doctor and person. His heart is so big and he takes his work very seriously and truly to his heart. I want to let everyone know that he is one of the best doctors I have ever known in my life. I want to thank Dr. Patel for giving me a way to walk again. I am truly grateful!"

    - Mary T.


    "I came to Dr. Patel with pain in my foot for 2 years and 3 surgeries. My previous doctors told me I would have to live with the pain and get orthotics to help. Within 5 minutes of meeting Dr. Patel, he said " I think I know what's wrong." He sent me for an ultrasound and it turned out I had a cut ligament that I had been walking on! He fixed that. I am a dancer and very active. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
