About Dr. Patel

Philosophy of care

Technologically advanced treatments are at the core of what we do, but the most important part of my job is to help my patients understand what is happening to them and how we can help. We see a lot of people in emergency situations, when they're having a stroke or have had an aneurysm rupture. We're there to ease their anxiety by listening to their concerns and addressing them, even in these stressful, time-pressured situations.

Why I entered medicine

There's a tradition of medicine in my family -- I am a third-generation physician. I have an aptitude for science and technology, but I have always been a people person, too. What made medicine fit for me was that it combines both -- it lets me work at the junction between science and humanity.

Personal interests

I practice yoga and exercise in a variety of ways. Food is a great pleasure for me (and an equally important part of living a healthy lifestyle). Eating out has become a big deal these days, but I love cooking at home, too.
