My favorite doctor...
I have had 3 surgeries with Dr. Gemas on my knees, I had a partial knee replacement 2 yrs ago and can now walk without pain. Four months ago Dr. Patel did surgery on my right hand. I no can use my right hand again and I am no in constant pain. I would recommend both Doctor’s to anyone. My experience with the associates at the front desk and with the assistants have been great. Both doctor’s are excellent and I will continue to use both in the future for any needs I may have. M B Dallas, TX

I am so happy to have chosen Dr Patel!
“I have visited Dr. Patel and Dr. Gemas for different needs. Dr. Gemas did my hip replacement about 5 years ago, and I am so satisfied! Dr. Patel has been seeing me for a hand injury, and has treated it perfectly. Both Doctors have been very honest and have been a pleasure to meet. I am so happy to have chosen Lakewood Ortho!

He has been kind and comforting
I underwent major reconstruction on my right wrist, it has been a long process. Dr. Patel would walk me through each of 3 surgeries helping me understand why and how it would take place. He has been kind and comforting. S H Dallas, TX
