Dr. Patel was born and raised in Pennsylvania. She attended Penn State University, where she completed her undergraduate degree. She then spent a year in Washington, D.C., working for Americorps teaching enrichment programs for children and adults. After that year she came back to Philadelphia to attend Temple University Medical School. She still remembers rotating in the Endocrine clinic in her third year of medical school and how it sparked her interest in the discipline.
Dr. Patel completed both her Internal Medicine training and Endocrinology fellowship at the George Washington University hospital system in Washington, DC. She rotated at the VA in Washington DC as part of her training as well.
In 2015, after completing her fellowship, she relocated to Louisiana, where she worked as an Endocrinologist for the WIllis Knighton hospital system for several years.
Dr. Patel hopes to establish trusting relationships with her patients, so that she may act as a guide and provide them with the best evidence based recommendations to optimize their health.
She is excited to call Texas home, and for the opportunity to serve a diverse community in the growing Austin metro region.
In her free time, Dr. Patel enjoys spending time with her friends and family.
