Maneesh N. Patel, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As a physician, I have always prioritized humanity in caring for my patients’ medical and emotional care. I try to provide individualized care with tact, sympathy and understanding. The secret of patient care is in “caring” for patients. I believe in encompassing integrity, respect and compassion. As a part of the MDVIP team I intend to offer undivided attention to my patients and cater precisely to their unique needs regarding both illness and preventive care.

I would like to share this pearl from my favorite medical textbook, Harrison’s: “No greater opportunity, responsibility, or obligation can fall to the lot of a human being than to become a physician.”
