Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Patel "I practice preventive pediatrics. I feel parenting is a lost art and we teach our parents how to talk to their chilren without using the word 'NO'and hence teach parenting at our well visits. We treat the whole child, not a symptom and have a wholistic approach.

Inspired by our Franciscan values of Respect, Care, Competence and Joy, HSHS Medical Group providers are devoted to elevating the patient as the focus of our existence. We will prioritize our decision-making to place the needs of our patients first. Our promise of Patient-First Care integrates the latest technology and innovation with highly personalized, competent care designed to provide you with a five star experience. We believe that every encounter with a patient is an opportunity to create an outstanding patient experience. We will work in tandem with patients to determine their best options for care, while respecting their individual needs and motivations. We will strive to build trust with our patients so they will understand that we always have their health and best interest at heart."
