Dr. Patel's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Patel "Dr. Milan Patel is a Board Certified Ophthalmologist who is also fellowship-trained corneal, cataract, and LASIK refractive surgery specialist practicing in North Atlanta. At Milan Eye Center, Dr. Patel has dedicated his practice to refractive surgery, corneal diseases and topical, no-stitch cataract surgery. Dr. Patel began his undergraduate education at Emory University and subsequently graduated with honors from Marshall University in Huntington, West Virginia. A Georgia native, Dr. Patel returned home and earned his medical degree from the Medical College of Georgia. During medical school, Dr. Patel had the opportunity to work with Dr. Howard Gimbel – one of the founding fathers of modern ophthalmology and the first person in Canada to perform the most advanced form of cataract removal, phacoemulsification. Dr. Patel completed his internship at Northwestern University, followed by an ophthalmology residency at the Medical College of Georgia, where he published numerous articles on corneal and retinal diseases. Following residency training, Dr. Patel was selected to pursue a Cornea and Refractive Surgery fellowship at the prestigious Shiley Eye Center of the University of California – San Diego. There, under the direction of Dr. David Schanzlin, past president of the International Society of Refractive Surgery, Dr. Patel gained immense experience in LASIK, cataract, and corneal surgery. During his fellowship, Dr. Patel continued to publish extensively on groundbreaking technology and surgical techniques. In recognition of his outstanding work, Dr. Patel was selected from among his 16 colleagues as Fellow of the Year. Upon completion of his fellowship, Dr. Patel decided to dedicate the next six months to serving underprivileged patients in the developing world. By volunteering his clinical and surgical skills at five community hospitals in India, Dr. Patel gave the gift of sight to many people who would otherwise not have access to modern eye care. Dr. Patel continues to freely give of his time and talent by lecturing globally, including a recent presentation at the largest eye hospital in the world, the Aravind Eye Hospital. No stranger to technology, Dr. Patel produces educational videos, the most recent of which was recognized as the Best Refractive Surgery Video at the 2006 AAO international meeting of ophthalmologists. Additionally, Dr. Patel has created a mobile application which Milan Eye Center patients can benefit from when undergoing Cataract, LASIK and Corneal surgeries. The Easy Drops app is the only available app which reminds patients when they should use their post-operative eyedrops. Dr. Patel was also selected by Castel Connolly as "Top Doctor" in the field of Ophthalmology. The doctors selected for this recognition were selected after peer nomination, extensive research and careful review and screening by Castle Connolly's doctor-directed research team. In his spare time, Dr. Patel enjoys spending time with his wife, Snehal and his two sons, Saajan & Dylan."

Throughout all my interactions, I felt very reassured and safe. Dr. Patel and Dr. Ficco are extremely nice people, and their care is portrayed throughout the service they provide. Overall, I had a very professional experience from the beginning to end with Milan Eye Center.
