Meet Hiral Patel, OD

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family, traveling, and exploring my cultural roots.


"I CAN SEE AGAIN !! This is the first review I have ever written, but very well deserving. Excellent care from the receptionists to the technicians to obviously the doctors. The receptionists were very accommodating in scheduling appointments. The technicians explained what each test determined, while the doctor determined and implemented the correct action. Cataract surgery was successful, pain free, and stress free as I was sedated. Results were back to 20/20 vision. I would highly recommend Kirk Eye Center."



"My exam finished an hour after they closed. They told me they were still open so that I wouldn’t feel guilty. My eyes don’t work together. They referred me to a specialist and gave me a new sharp prescription. It’s a good news/ bad news thing. 10/10Highly Recommended. Everyone treated me well. I was one giant panic attack and they were great with me."

"Was looking to switch eye doctors and Kirk Eye Center was highly recommended. I made an appointment for myself and saw Dr. Patel and had a very good experience. Every employee I dealt with was very nice and helpful. I was able to get in and out very quickly with hardly any waiting around. After my good experience, I decided to make an appointment for my mom who saw Dr. Scott Kirk. Again, very good experience. All of the employees are very nice and helpful. One of the technicians, Ursula, was extremely helpful and made sure my mom who is disabled was cared for and made comfortable throughout the appointment. The whole office works very efficiently without compromising on care. Would highly recommend Kirk Eye Center in River Forest!"



"Dr Patel was very good and thorough. Its a very pleasant eye center."
