The rulebook says its around 2 minutes per patient, but what's a good starting number of Patients for 2, 3 & 4 players? (i.e., providing a not too short, not too long game)

It really all depends on your preference. For a first game just to get a good feel I would say start with 15 cards and see how quickly your group exhausts the patient deck. There are a number of factors that can impact the speed. A lot of it depends on how fast your group pushes the pace of the game. In playtesting we saw some groups liked a faster game and called 911 right away leaving players scrambling. Other groups liked to take their time and play more of a chill pace taking time to discuss and laugh at the patient cards and how the absurdity of the items used in the operation.
