I have seen dr. Patel for about 5 years and I can only remember one time that I had more than a 30 minute wait and that was because another patient had an emergency which is something you have to take into account when you go to the doctor. She is professional and she has always showed me compassion and that can never be overrated.
I was extremely pleased and impressed to be able to get my PRK surgery done with Dr. Patel in 2017. She made the whole process so easy and painless! Dr. Patel is very thorough and took her time to explain in detail every portion of what there was to expect prior, during and after the surgery. I was very appreciative of how, even after my surgery, she took time out of her own day to check in on me and make sure I was not having any issues after leaving. Even now, over a year later, my vision is as good as it was after surgery. I would highly recommend Dr. Patel to anyone looking to improve their vision!
I am so excited to visit Dr. Patel and her staff tomorrow. I know there will be a wait time, but as a nurse, I appreciate the time that Dr. Patel devotes to each and every patient that walks through her clinic doors. She would never make anyone feel rushed or unworthy of expressing their feelings and concerns. It is also very evident that the clinic staff enjoy their jobs and are provided excellent training.
Dr. Patel and her amazing staff go above and beyond to make me feel like more than just a number...I appreciate the time and care they put into making my experience a positive one. They are helpful and flexible; always there with a smile. I've enjoyed meeting the technicians and Dr. Patel and couldn't be happier with the treatment I have received. Dr. Patel is thoughtful and reasonable in her processes and expectations. She is always on the cutting edge of diagnostics and tests so that she can provide the best information and treatment options to her patients. Thank you!
My experience with Dr. Patel has been a very positive one. She is very professional while giving that personal touch which makes me confident in my treatment and trust in her recommendations. Her staff is also extremely professional and friendly.
I am a surgery sales representative calling on cataract surgeons in three states including Kansas. Dr. Patel's knowledge & expertise of the latest technological procedures & products in ophthalmic surgery plus her compassion for patients put her at the top of my list. I would not hesitate to put my eyes in her care!
The staff is nice, but they overbook appointments. I've had 2 consultation appointments so far, and have had to wait over 50 minutes before being called both times. Dr. Patel took the time to apologize, and explain the reasons for the delay. That was greatly appreciated.Update 12/28:Scheduling has improved greatly. Was called in with less than a 5 minute wait today. Staff is very nice as usual.Update 1/4/18 (Day of Procedure):I was called after less than 5 minutes of waiting. The staff and Dr. Patel are amazing! I was nervous and excited about the procedure. Before going back, the front desk staff made sure I had a ride home, and wrote down my friend's contact info. Dr. Patel took time to answer my last minute questions and also helped calm my nerves before the procedure. Her staff walked me through all my medications, their uses, and dosages. I never felt rushed or made to feel like I asked dumb questions. After the procedure, the staff contacted my friend for me, and made sure I was comfortable while waiting for her arrival. Dr. Patel personally called to check on me at 7PM after the procedure.I am very impressed by their high level of care, attention to detail, and appreciative of all their help.Update 1/5/18 (Follow-up):Scheduling has improved drastically. Once again, I waited less than 5 minutes before being called in. Dr. Patel checked my eyes, explained the different stages of healing, and what to expect. She answered all my questions, and went through my medications again with me to make sure everything was crystal clear. I continue to be impressed by the level of care provided by Dr. Patel and her staff!
Felt like I was at home when Ninna took care of me. Did every test possible, very thorough, well informed throughout the whole check up. Doctor came in and explained what was going on with my eye. Did the procedure and in less than 15 minutes I was good to go home. Very pleased with the doctor and the staff. Thank you.
Dr Patel has the highest professional standards. Her knowledge is outstanding. I struggled with dry eyes for many years. She was the first eye professional to offer ways of coping with my condition. My eyes improved enormously and are no longer painfully dry. Dr Patel placed a toric lens in my left eye. The vision in that eye is now 20/20 . I see a beautiful world I have never seen before. My right eye cataract surgery improved my vision greatly. I had worn glasses for 60 years and now just need readers. I drive at night without difficulty. I had laser surgery to remove cataracts. I highly recommend Dr Patel and her staff.
Dr. Patel has done an amazing job of keeping my vision at its maximum potential. I have severe dry eye and eye allergies. Last month I had a growth and sun scarring removed from my cornea. After healing, my vision in that eye improved 50+%. I highly recommend Dr. Patel.
Dr. Patel and her staff are the best I have found. They seem to enjoy their jobs and treat my family and I as a patient and not just a number. They all take time to make sure your visit is accurate. I understand the wait time because if they are spending that much time on me and doing such a great job, she must be doing the same with all of her patients. Keep up the great work!!
I have been a patient of Dr. Rena Patel for the past two years. Although I have had to wait to get back and see the doctor , I have always had her undivided attention when she is in the exam room. She is extremely knowledgeable and appears to be on the cutting edge of the newest devices and surgical procedures. I went from contacts to glasses and just recently had bilateral cataract surgery. I now have 20/20 vision without any type of correction lense. I am extremely pleased with her and her staff, they make you feel at ease and explain everything extensively. I Thank them for their professionalism on the phone as well as in person. I would give them a 10/10. Thanks
Dr. Patel is a physician whose sincere goal is to improve the quality of life for her patients. When I first became a patient under Dr. Patel’s care, I was diagnosed with cataracts in both of my eyes; dry eye syndrome; and astigmatism. Previous records from my Lasik surgery, which occurred 17 years ago, were no longer available. The Lasik surgery documentation was important in determining the exact corrections that now needed to be made to properly correct my astigmatism. Dr. Patel wisely recommended I postpone the cataract removal and astigmatism correction procedure, until she received newly developed diagnostic equipment. This newly developed technology would provide her with the most accurate metrics possible. New specialized lens implants were also becoming available, which would correct my astigmatism. Dr. Patel explained my chances for a successful outcome would be significantly increased if I would be patient and wait a little longer. Dr. Patel is truly a physician with high integrity and would never perform surgery until she knew it was the right time. She truly cares about providing her patients with the best care she can. Dr. Patel successfully treated my dry eye symptoms with a regiment of eye drops, cleansing techniques and vitamins, which prevented me from requiring more extensive - and more expensive treatment. Prior to the surgery on my right eye, she provided me with sample eye drops from her office and coupons for the eye drops I would need to purchase after my surgery. She did all she could to reduce my expenses. During preparations for right eye surgery, Dr. Patel spent quality time with me explaining the results of my pre-surgery testing and asking questions to determine my vision goals. One of my desires was to once again see the front sight on a pistol. I thoroughly enjoyed going to the firing range, but due to the cataract in my right eye I could no longer see the sights, on my pistol. Although the cataract in my left eye was not as bad yet – I was also experiencing difficulty seeing and firing left handed. Using a blue gun (authentic plastic replica of a Sig P229 pistol), Dr. Patel took additional measurements which she used in determining the correct lens to implant, during my surgery. My right eye surgery took place on November 1, 2017. Two days after the surgery, I happened to glance at my mobile phone and for the first time in 10 years or more, I could read the information on the screen without glasses. I pulled the Sig out of its case and – wow! – The sight picture was there clear as a bell. So the right eye cataract is gone along with the rainbow halos around cars at night and the astigmatism has been corrected better than I dreamed possible. Quality of life restored! The process included the latest diagnostic equipment; the newest technology in an intraocular lens implant; and the use of a laser surgery technique performed by Dr. Patel. Dr. Patel is a very accomplished and highly competent physician and surgeon. I will be forever grateful to her for restoring my vision. I highly recommend Dr. Patel.

I had been to 3 opthamologists in 3 years for what started as iritis and uveitis and all it was doing was getting worse. I had holes in my cornea, the pressure was out of control and it was so dry that my eyelids were actually tearing it more. After the first visit to Dr. Patel I noticed a change for the better. After a year, it was amazing how much better it was. Currently it's under control, no more holes in the cornea and it's steady enough that I could even get new glasses. Dr. Reena Patel is the most amazing dr I have been to and she's also very thoughtful and caring in everything she does. I wouldn't ever consider going to any other opthamologist.
Love Dr. Patel. She does an amazing job and makes sure you are seeing at your best. I was scared to do Lasik and she was so calm and I can see without any correction. I spent a ton of money on corrective lenses and glasses. I should have seen her sooner!!! Thank you for a better quality of life Dr. Patel!!
We travel all over the US and have gone to many opthalmologists over the years. We have never had such a thorough examination. Next year, no matter where we are, we intend to travel back to Wichita for our annual eye exam.
My daughter has been coming to this office for quite some time. The staff and Dr patel always make her feel comfortable. My daughter is not always the best compliant patient at the age of 13 but Dr Patel is very good with her. My daughter has had several chilazions cut and injected on her eyelids and does well with it. I think that is because Dr Patel and her assistants make her feel comfortable and always make sure she is ok during the whole procedure.
My husband has been going to her for a few years & he has,always been satisfied with her. He was also well pleased with the cataract & inplant surgery she did. I have cataracts now & we never had a second thought as what Doctor we were going to. I would highly recommend her.Connie Forshee
The time and care the WVI staff takes with every patient is well worth any wait. They will treat you like family and always have your eye health in mind with all decisions and treatment options. Definitely the only place I would trust to handle my Lasik!
I had LASIK at Wichita Vision Institute, PA by Dr. Reena Patel and it was an amazing experience!! She gave me the gift of my eyesight back; I can see better than I've seen in many years! Dr. Patel is an amazing surgeon; I truly can't say enough about her! She is very knowledgeable and is willing to take the time to answer any questions you may have to make you are 100% confident in your decision. Her staff is extremely friendly and also very knowledgeable. They, as well as the doctor, go the extra mile in everything they do and really look out for the best interest of every patient. Give them a call; it's definitely a decision you won't regret!!
