Philosophy

Dr. Patel approaches medicine by trying to understand what is not functioning optimally in the body while taking into account the whole person, including mind, body, and lifestyle.

 

She attributes her inspiration for Integrative Medicine to her native roots of India and her family who exposed her early on to natural forms of healing.  Being the daughter of a prominent vascular surgeon, she was able to see first hand the benefits of modern medicine as well as have an appreciation for more non-traditional methods of healing. 

Dr. Patel has a genuine passion for lifestyle medicine, using aspects of daily life to promote natural healing, such as movement, nutrition, stress, and environment. She has a particular interest in complex medical cases and working with patients to achieve optimal wellness. She has a true passion for a food-as-medicine approach to health and healing.

What are Home Visits?

  • Home visits are medical visits where the physician travels to the patient’s home.

  • The majority of the initial evaluations are done in the comfort of one’s own environment, which reduces travel and stress for patients.

  • This setting allows for the physician’s full attention on the patient’s personal health goals and the opportunity to build a true partnership between the patient and physician.

  • Home visits include an in depth 60-minute assessment evaluating the whole person including nutritional, environmental, and lifestyle factors as well as developing a personalized plan.

  • After the initial home visit, most follow-ups are conducted via video based telemedicine consultations. Office visits are also available.

What is Telemedicine?

 

  • Telemedicine is connecting with the physician remotely from your computer.

  • Patient and physician meet face-to-face using a private video web-based conference.

  • Telemedicine offers punctual appointments from the comfort of the patient’s home or environment of choice.

  • This approach provides flexibility when traveling and maximizes the patient’s personal time.

  • This is an ideal platform for education that allows screen share to review labs in detail, as well as pertinent medical research, diagrams, and literature.
