Dr. Bhupendra Patel, MD - Reviews

Jun 12, 2020

Patient

Love Dr Patel. I was so scared of my eye surgery that he allowed my optometrist to be with me during my surgery, and since he’s a teaching doctor, my doctor was thrilled to be there. He made me so comfortable and eased my nerves. He’s a very caring doctor, and his assistant Stacey is wonderful.

J. S. – Jun 09, 2020

Patient

I was nervous about getting a facelift and waited many years. My golfing partners had their facelifts and when I heard it was Dr. Patel who I had already seen, I just signed up. Great choice!! Remember to listen to his advice about how to look after your skin and your neck after surgery. I was not good but still got a great result! Thank you to Dr. Patel and his team

J. K. – Mar 26, 2020

Patient

I know there are big problems but I want to show my gratitude to Abraham, Jill, Dena, the assistant (don't remember her name) and Dr. Patel for the wonderful care they have given me for several years and fixed me more than once. The University is lucky to have this great team. Even with all the stress, they treated me so graciously today. THANK YOU for being the best.

1 Rob T. – Mar 26, 2020

Patient

From the receptionist to his assistant to the students, this is a wonderful team. I was looked after so well when they reconstructed my face after cancer surgery. God bless you all.

J. C. – Mar 18, 2020

Patient

My heavy lids made me look sad but the baggy lower lids made me look old. I am glad I got both fixed. I can see better and look better. I had a bit of a wait in the clinic both times I was there recently.

R. C. – Mar 18, 2020

Patient

Great surgical experience. Great team. Worth the travel.

Pam M. – Mar 12, 2020

Patient

We talked about how we were treated all the way back to Park City!

Jerry R. – Mar 12, 2020

Patient

My doctor said this was the best plastic surgery result he had ever seen. When he saw my photos before the repair, he was even more impressed! He told me "God's hand has touched me"! We love and adore you.

Raymond S. – Mar 12, 2020

Patient

Got my botched face surgery fixed by the Patel team at the University of Utah. Diana and Abraham were wonderful. Took me 7 years to finally find a surgeon who knew how to fix me. Worth the long drive.

M. R. – Mar 12, 2020

Patient

Had a great experience with upper and lower eyelid surgery.

Z. A. – Mar 11, 2020

Patient

I can see and I also look better. Happy with the team and the results.

Anne R. – Mar 09, 2020

Patient

The difference in my face is more than I expected (in a good way). The bad: some swelling took longer to settle than I expected and the laser area pinkness settles more slowly than I thought. But the results are wonderful. Great team at the surgical center

J. K. – Mar 09, 2020

Patient

I can see and everyone tells me I look 10 years younger. No complaints. Dr. Patel is great. Warning: if you have to wait for an appointment, it is worth it!!

Mar 07, 2020

Patient

I have an appointment to get surgery on my eye lids so that I can see better. I understand that after the surgery, your eyes will be bruised for up to two months. Also, your eyes will be blurry for a long time. I wonder if I can get some feedback from people having this procedure done.

J. R. – Mar 06, 2020

Patient

He is a perfectionist. Unlike my other consults, I did not have to talk to several people upselling me or wanting to have me do more and more. He said "I will do your facelift and necklift: leave it to me". Best sentence ever: he fixed my cheeks, my lower lids, spots on the face, my lip lines, my jowls are gone and I look 20 years younger. His young trainee doctor thought I was 45. I am 69!

J. T. – Mar 06, 2020

Patient

My surgery went very well but I had a wait in the clinic which is why I did not give five stars. Dr. Patel is very good but I think that is why he is busy and you may have to wait to see him. I am naturally impatient!

P. K. – Mar 06, 2020

Patient

I had my upper eyelids "fixed" by Dr. Patel after a botched job where my lids were uneven and the lines were off. He did a great job. Glad I was sent to him: made the 8-hour drive from Montana worth it!

1 B. D. – Feb 28, 2020

Patient

I only had my upper lids done (I now wish I had the lower lids done too) but the difference is just amazing. I can see so much better but the way people treat me has changed. I don't get the comments I used to get. Even as a doctor who has done lots of procedures (I am not a plastic surgeon), I did not realize what a truly skillful operation can do. I never write reviews but this is one I told Dr. Patel I wanted to write. Thank you to his whole team: great team. Dena is just wonderful. So are his nurses: very caring.

K. W. – Feb 28, 2020

Patient

I went through a severe trauma. Dr. Patel worked through the night and after six hours told my family "we will have to see". Well, I told him if this is the result that he calls "we will have to see", I can't wait to see his other results. I am beyond happy that I was sent to the University of Utah and I was blessed enough to have Dr. Patel fix me. I cannot say enough things about this brilliant doctor. We include you in our prayers every day, Dr. Patel!

Brenda D. – Feb 27, 2020

Patient

Several doctors refused to see me because I have Medicaid and a chronic condition which takes time. I sometimes wait in clinic more than 20 mins but I am glad this doctor took me as he treats me with respect and listens to me. My chronic condition is not curable but I am glad to have a caring team. Abraham is excellent in this clinic. It is clear that all the people in the clinic admire Dr. Patel and I understand why now.

Michael B. – Feb 27, 2020

Patient

My experience was excellent. I would recommend highly.

D. S. – Feb 26, 2020

Patient

As I was looked after very well and a lot of time was spent with me, I am just writing this to apologize.

J. B. – Feb 26, 2020

Patient

Dr. Patel moved some fat to fill my deep lids and also adjusted my eyelid lines which were wonky. I am so happy.

R. J. – Feb 20, 2020

Patient

We had to wait in the clinic for a while because the clinic was obviously busy but we are very happy with the results.

J. C. – Feb 20, 2020

Patient

I never thought a doctor would stay late into the night and fix me for a problem just because I had travelled a long distance and was seen by someone else. I thought they would make a new appointment and I would have to drive 8 hours again. My husband and I were so grateful to Dr. Patel and Mike and the junior doctor who helped fix me. We think this is the best team we have seen at the University and we have seen quite a few!Bless, bless, bless you.

D. R. – Feb 19, 2020

Patient

The real surprise was that he then called me back to make sure the problem had settled. I am not used to such personalized care with everyone so busy. I am writing this to thank Dena and Dr. patel for their care and concern. The University is truly lucky to have people like this when I get treated just like another number almost everywhere these days.

Jennie K. – Feb 18, 2020

Patient

He did a great job. My sister is going to come and see him next. And my friends! Thank you for a very good experience. I was super nervous!

J. K. – Feb 18, 2020

Patient

Well, my only complaint is I had trouble getting the date for surgery I wanted. This doctor is popular: I met two other patients from other states when I was there. But the result is excellent. My sister had a facelift and necklift in California and she has the pulled look which I don't like (but she seems to like). I look like I did many years ago and my neck actually looks better than when I was 18, so life is tra-la-la. Thank you to Dr. Patel and his team for putting up with my calls and demands!

G. J. – Feb 18, 2020

Patient

The surgical center and the clinic people were great. Nice, caring people. Although I had to wait to get an appointment, everything was well worth it: I can understand why this doctor is busy!

P. D. – Feb 13, 2020

Patient

Great bedside manner and clear explanations. Made me feel very confident.

B. D. – Feb 13, 2020

Patient

We will miss seeing you!

Madison T. – Feb 06, 2020

Patient

This is the best clinic visit I have had in a long time and I wanted to share this if anyone is trying to get another opinion for a problem. Trust this team. Diana in the clinic is the best! Thanks Diana for being so nice. God bless you all

A. M. – Jan 30, 2020

Patient

After I read the material he gave me and showed me some things, I now understand everything can't just be cured with a pill or surgery and am being patient. I am beginning to see improvement. So thank you to Dr. Patel and his team (especially Diana) for being so patient with me.

1 W. E. – Jan 30, 2020

Patient

I had botched surgery and had too many operations (five). Every time someone would see me they would want to operate and I was always left worse off. I finally was very frustrated and did not want to come from Montana and drive 8 hours just to see yet another doctor but I am so glad I did. My eyes are so much more comfortable now after Dr. Patel's care and I even look better. He took his time analyzing all my procedures and planning things and I will always be grateful to him and to the University for having this great doctor.

1 M. H. – Jan 30, 2020

Patient

I didn't know who to tell at the University so I am writing on this that I found when I googled Dr. Patel and his team. God bless you all

Raul M. – Jan 16, 2020

Patient

I lost my whole lower eyelid and I had no idea how Dr. Patel would be able to make me a new one. Well he did!! My friends can't even tell that this is a lid "made by Patel" because it looks so great. I am glad my doctor in Idaho sent me to this great doctor at the Moran Clinic.

Connie L. – Jan 16, 2020

Patient

In the beginning I thought one side would be different from the other but my family reminded me what you had said. I am glad I waited before calling you because now I look beautiful! I remember what you told me and my family: "be patient and trust me". Well, we do!!

Shauna A. – Jan 14, 2020

Patient

I had never heard of this hammock lift but after reading about it and having Dr. Patel do it for me, I am very happy. Next I am going to have him fix my jowls and neck! Thank you to Dr Patel and his excellent team, especially Michelle.

Thomas J. – Jan 09, 2020

Patient

My family will always be grateful to you Dr. Patel. Thomas loves you and he was crying on the way home because he won't get to see you any more. He said he is going to make a drawing to send to you. Thank you very much for being so kind to him. And fixing him!

Julia C. – Jan 08, 2020

Patient

After four operations in Idaho and Oregon, I am happy that I saw Dr. Patel. He told me the advantages and problems that can arise with the jones tube but mine has worked wonderfully. I don't know how I could have carried on without this. Dr. Fornoratto was right! Dr. Patel is THE MAN! Dr. Patel: please don't go anywhere. I don't know what I would do.

Jonathan D. – Jan 08, 2020

Patient

I had no insurance and a problem which had been there for some time but needed fixing. I tried to get on Medicaid but I earned too much and private insurances were too expensive. After being told unbelievable costs by three doctors, somebody I met at church told me to see Dr. Patel. He helped me fix my problem and did his surgery at no charge because it was preventing me from working. God bless you Dr. Patel. I wish there were more doctors like you in the world.

1 1 Dec 28, 2019

Patient

Chronic ongoing complications of Grave's Disease. The visit report in patient portal listed NO complications, NO pain, and zero problems with eye movement. It was as if I didn't even go to the appointment. I did in fact report terrible pain, I have increased bulging of eye- per his own words, and restricted eye movement. I complained I had vision problems as well as terrible pain in the other eye and he said it was "your other eye is of no concern to me." Wow. Must have missed Bedside Manner 101. His standard arrogance and superior air finally broke the camel's back. I pay for the services I receive. If he can't treat other eye, he could at least feign interest and suggest I see someone else. I'll take a little compassion and a LOT of professionalism. I'm DONE.

Ida J. – Dec 19, 2019

Patient

I have thanked Dr. Fornoratto for telling me to see "this doctor I know in Salt Lake City who will give you the correct answers". That would be Dr. BCK Patel MD of the university of utah. His clinic staff are wonderful. I remember Diana and Abraham and Jill was so thorough. I have written to the University to tell them what a great team this is.

Mac C. – Dec 17, 2019

Patient

My droopy lids had been bothering me for many years. Dr. Graf asked me to see Dr. Patel. His team at the Surgical Center is wonderful. I am very happy.

Janna A. – Dec 12, 2019

Patient

Thank you for looking after me so well. I will miss seeing you all!

Kim D. – Dec 12, 2019

Patient

I had a tumor behind my eye and in my brain. I had headaches, I couldn't work and was depressed and also losing vision. I saw several doctors and finally Dr. Hendrix asked me to see Dr. Patel. He completely changed my life. He and Dr. Coldwell worked a miracle. I now have my vision back, no more tumor, I even got married and have a baby! God bless you both.

Johna D. – Dec 05, 2019

Patient

Thank you to Dr. Patel and his team. Abraham was very nice

Kathleen D. – Nov 21, 2019

Patient

I got a beautiful result and my husband and I were both very happy with everything. When we saw Dr. Patel, he asked us to come back after five months and then he made what he called "a small adjustment". We asked him how much it would cost and he asked us why we thought it would cost anything. He said he just wanted to correct something he saw. And, well, I look even better. His assistant Dina told me he is always a perfectionist and likes to give people the best result he can. My husband I both said "all surgeons should be like him!"

Maria E. – Nov 21, 2019

Patient

It is true what everyone says: you are an artist! And so polite. We love coming to see you. I wish you would accept our invitation to have dinner with us!!

John M. – Nov 21, 2019

Patient

We were so scared. I am alive because of what Dr. Patel did and I am sending him a huge bag of the best Idaho potatoes every year from now on!

Patricia R. – Nov 21, 2019

Patient

I don't write reviews but I asked Dr. Patel if I could write to his boss. He laughed and told me his boss was his mother! So I found this site to write about my experience. I had three facelifts by two surgeons and for the last 7 years have been afraid to go in public because I knew people were pointing at me. I felt disfigured. I had many problems including what they call pull-lines, pixie (?) ears, abnormal smile, etc. I saw 8 plastic surgeons and they all turned me down or quoted me unbelievable prices to "try" to fix some of the changes. I met a patient of Dr. Patel's in France of all places who showed me how he fixed her and I found Dr. Patel and finally got to see him (he has a waiting list, so be warned!). Not only did he treat me very kindly, he also measured and drew everything so I understood what may be fixed and what could not be fixed. Well, when he was done, I was shocked. He fixed everything I could see and other things I was missing. I actually look beautiful!

Phyllis O. – Nov 21, 2019

Patient

I was treated so well by everyone. I wrote a thank you to the hospital but I don't know if Dr Patel's team will get to see my letter. So I am writing this so they know how grateful my family is. Not only did Dr. Patel fix a problem that had been worsened by five previous surgeries in other places, he made me better than I expected. Everyone from Steven to Patricia to Diana and Jill were wonderful. We bless you all and give thanks that we have you in our lives.

Ronald W. – Nov 19, 2019

Patient

And he is a cool guy. I love his humor. I asked him if I could just come and visit and have a drink with him!

Jonathan S. – Nov 14, 2019

Patient

Someone told us when we called that he had gone back to England but he had only gone back for a short while. We told him if he went back to England we were going to follow him! Amazing, wonderful and kind doctor. We don't normally write reviews but we asked Dr. Patel if we could leave some comments.

Sandy M. – Nov 14, 2019

Patient

Thank you to Marie, Diana and Abraham and to Jill. Everyone at the Moran Center was so kind and helpful.

Rebecca B. – Nov 12, 2019

Patient

Super happy with my result. Can't wait for the lower face and necklift in a few months. Love the results so far with the upper part of the face. The pinkness from the laser lasted longer than I thought but the skin looks really good now. Also, the blurry vision lasted several days but is now good

Jalna J. – Nov 12, 2019

Patient

I don't know if Dr. Patel needs more work but he is clearly an artist and the best at what he does. I met several other patients who had had a facelift by him and they were all singing his praises. And they looked great. And he and his team are so kind. I had nothing but the best of care. I could go on and on....

Lenny D. – Nov 07, 2019

Patient

Great doctor. Nice staff. Thank you.

Jen S. – Nov 07, 2019

Patient

He knows his stuff! I enjoyed seeing how he taught his junior doctors. I hope they listened to him and they learn from him.

1 Steve L. – Nov 07, 2019

Patient

Great job fixing my eyelids: I am very happy.

Sidney C. – Oct 25, 2019

Patient

Thank you Dr. Patel and team. Dena is wonderful

1 Paty H. – Oct 24, 2019

Patient

I look beautiful. My ex-husband hates it.

Jen C. – Oct 24, 2019

Patient

I am beyond grateful that I was asked to see Dr. Patel. He explained everything in detail, spent the time with me and then fixed me!! I have started sending all my friends (and others!) to see him as he is the best plastic surgeon I have ever seen. They should give you a raise.

Anonymous – Oct 23, 2019

Patient

I made the mistake of going to another surgeon because Dr. Patel was booked out. I am now never going to be impatient as Dr. Patel helped me fix the problems caused by the other doctor. Serves me right. I have apologized to Dr. Patel and his team as I was a little short when they told me I had to wait to see him. Sorry. And thank you to your whole team, especially Michelle

Martin R. – Oct 23, 2019

Patient

As a man, I was worried about looking like I had surgery. Your team did a beautiful job. I am so glad Dr. Jones sent me to Dr. Patel.

Robert M. – Oct 22, 2019

Patient

I went from doctors in Page to doctors in Vegas to LA to New Mexico. Finally, Dr. Hendrix told me to see Dr. Patel. He finally made the huge difference to my life I was looking for. My family cannot believe how much better I look from all the deformities Dr. Patel fixed. We bless you every day, Dr. Patel. And Dr. Hendrix!

Marie R. – Oct 17, 2019

Patient

I look forward to my appointments because they have such a great team and look after my complicated problem so well. Thank you to the whole team but especially Diana and Abraham.

Patricia D. – Oct 17, 2019

Patient

Dr. Patel and his team did a wonderful job of reconstructing me. Bless you all. Now I know why everyone regards you as THE BEST!

John D. – Oct 17, 2019

Patient

Very nice job: thanks

Venna B. – Oct 14, 2019

Patient

I am sending my sister and my friends to see you as they all think you did a great job! I told them that if they had to wait to get an appointment with you, it was worth the wait!

Sue R. – Oct 14, 2019

Patient

Thank you for lifting my lids: I can now see the traffic lights! And I look better too.

Anne L. – Oct 14, 2019

Patient

I don't look tired any more. The pinkness from the laser took some weeks to settle but now the skin looks great. And no more bags!! Great job, Dr. P.

Janna J. – Oct 03, 2019

Patient

I have lived with comments all my life. When they told me to go and see Dr. Patel at the University, I was not interested as I had had so much bad luck (procedures). After two years of saying no, I finally went because everybody kept on saying the same name again and again. Well, I am 80% better and I love the way I look after so many years. God bless you and your hands, Dr. Patel. And thank you for being so kind to my mother. She loves you...

Julie T. – Oct 03, 2019

Patient

Great job. I love they look too. I enjoyed listening to the teaching you were giving to your doctors. You said I wouldn't remember everything but I remember the camels in Timbuctoo and the raiders in Uganda!

Suzanne S. – Sep 26, 2019

Patient

I am putting up my photos on the web so others can see what a great job you did. I appreciate you and your skills and your team.

Curtis B. – Sep 26, 2019

Patient

But I was really impressed by how thorough he was and how carefully he explained to me the advantages and disadvantages of surgery.I saw three other doctors who all wanted to operate but gave me no information. I am glad I met him

Bill C. – Sep 26, 2019

Patient

I look just fine. Thanks for taking great care of me. I appreciated the calls you and your team made to check up on me.

Joanna W. – Sep 19, 2019

Patient

Takes some time to heal, but it is still the best treatment so I was happy to deal with the healing and redness. It also helped a scar I had from an injury and my acne scars.

Linda O. – Sep 19, 2019

Patient

Nice staff. Steven is a gem.Got looked after very well and they even removed my bumps the same day.

John J. – Sep 18, 2019

Patient

Happy with my no-bags look. Great result. The laser took a while to heal and I should have remembered to put more lotion on. Otherwise, everything was great.
