Improving lives is at the center of my beliefs. That is why I strive to help patients achieve a wholeness and vigor as best they are able. I believe in empowering patients to learn about health and wellness, nutrition and integrative approaches (or non-conventional methods) to treat disease.

Dr. Smita Patel is one of the best doctors I have encountered. She has an inherent quality of caring for patients. I feel that she believes in her profession so strongly that she will give me the incentive to follow through on her recommendations. Thank you Dr. Patel, you are the example of what health care professionals should emulate.

*Dr. Patel is OUTSTANDING!
Explanations given were good, but almost overload.
Dr. Patel spent her time listening to my issues and explaining what she felt was going on and how best to deal with the issues going forward. Was very good and reassuring and made me feel good about the visit.
The doctor recommended the possibility of taking a half dose of medicine to gage the results. At home I realized this was not possible because the medicine was in capsule form. Dr. Patel put into perspective some recent additions to my medical problems list. She and her assistant were very helpful at the end and immediately following the appointment regarding another issue that came up. I'm grateful for their concern and subsequent efforts which went beyond the appointment.
