Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Patel "As a geriatrician, I believe in holistic care of older adults. I believe in treating the whole person and where they come from, the social support they have rather than the heart, the glucose etc. I strongly believe in the team approach and coordinate with other specialists treating my patients. We also have a great team of case manager, pharmacist in our practice to help coordinate with care of our patients. We believe in maintaining functional status and quality of life of our patients."
