Dr. Patel's Care Philosophy

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.

Patient Comments (1)
in Mico, TX |
This is a dream doctor. We decided to change to a geriatric physician after about 16 years with another doctor because of long waits in the waiting room, unanswered calls, problems with medicine refills, etc. Dr. Patel was a breath of fresh air. Appts are on time, staff was friendly and helpful, and Dr. Patel does not rush us, but answers questions, explains everything, and is friendly. We feel like someone cares.!
