I agree with the last review re Riddi Patel, but she has moved on to Brendan Morley's practice in Emeryville, CA.-(Morely's office in Emeryville is the worst pain management doctor(s) and practice that I have ever been to by the way--he has no bedside manner). However, now every doctor at Ravi Panjabi's practice AKA Advanced Pain Management in Castro Valley and San Ramon is fabulous! I have seen many pain management doctors/offices in my ten plus years since my spinal injury, and none compare to Ravi Panjabi's practice. The insurance companies do not want you to go to his office because he really fights for the rights of his patients and really cares, besides being an excellent doctor and surgeon.

This office, and especially Dr. Riddi Patel, is horrid. She treats patients as if they are all deviant pedophile drug addicts, even though she's the one who chooses the treatment! My wife was brought to tears repeatedly when trying to get treatment for her back pain. I quit seeing this horrid person as soon as possible, but my wife was stuck until finding another doctor.

The office is poorly run, though their satellite offices are fine (Pleasanton is, in fact, a pleasure). Count on any afternoon appointment being at least 2 hours late, and they never give you any warning how late things are running when you come in.

Top that off with being a Pain Treatment center that doesn't believe any one is in pain, and you can imagine how fun it is to visit this place. Dr. Patel is the worst person I've met in years...honestly, she has no personality and is positively hateful to patients. Futher, she NEVER answers questions about treatment, thinking you should trust her god-like abilities and not ask questions. If you don't want to take a certain type of medication, or have problems with treatment, or have already done everything suggested and it didn't work...well tough. She'll insist on doing it again, her way, no matter how much suffering it causes.

I've never seen a doctor less suited to be involved in the care of human beings.

Pros: None.

Cons: Slow office. Terrible treatment. Patients don't matter.

This is a fantastic doctor. YES you will wait sometimes cause alot of people want to be seen here. They helped me where others didn't. If you are lucky enough to be seen here, you've found a great doctor. BTW Dr Patel is a MAN.

AVOID this Doctors Office at ALL COSTS!!

I have the worst experience of my life at this doctor?s office. The "Doctor" Ms. Rita Patel was a completely jer and would not talk to me as a human. She treated me like a piece of dirt and I would tell anyone to stay away from this person as she is not normal. She straight up lied to my face and she is a doctor???!!??? Also, my appointment was at 3:30pm and I didn't get seen until 4:45pm, waste of time.
