About Dr. Patel
Philosophy of care
As a pediatrician, my goal is to provide you and your family compassionate and dedicated care using evidence-based medicine. I am committed to community health engagement and quality improvement. Born, raised and educated locally, I strive to maintain my community connections.
Why I entered medicine
I enjoy the intellectual challenge, the enigma, and the science inherent in the birth and development of each child through adolescence. Encounters and experiences with patients at each stage of my education have fueled my passion for this field.
I like working with local school districts. During my residency, I received a community grant to distribute inhaler spacers to the city school district. I also have participated in Big Brothers Big Sisters and Relay for Life walks.
Outside work I love spending time with my grandmother, niece and nephew; not a day goes by where I do not interact with my niece or nephew. I also enjoy traveling, scrapbooking and cleaning.
