Dr. Arti A Patel has the following 4 specialties
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
- Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism
An endocrinologist is a physician with extensive training in understanding, diagnosing and treating conditions related to the endocrine system. The endocrine system regulates the balance of hormones.
Conditions of the endocrine system involve an over-abundance, or deficiency of a certain hormone. While there is a range when it comes to the amount of a hormone that is deemed normal in a human, these specialists determine whether a person's amount of hormone is indicative of a health concern. Two conditions this specialist might treat are diabetes and obesity.
- Pediatric Endocrinology
Endocrinologists treat disorders related to our glands and the hormones they produce. Because hormones play a key role in the growth and development of children, these conditions often pose different threats to children than they do adults. That’s where a pediatric endocrinologist comes in.
They can diagnose and treat hormonal disorders such as abnormal thyroid function, growth complications and early or delayed puberty. Ambiguous genitals as well as ovarian and testicular dysfunction are also part of their expertise. Childhood obesity, diabetes and problems with low blood sugar also tie back to hormone function and may require consulting with a pediatric endocrinologist.

Self-verified patient of Dr. Arti A Patel - Posted on July 20th, 2018
This "doctor" injected me with a ''medication"/toxin without even checking my medical records right there on her GATEWAY computer that would have plainly stated (I had a primary care doctor in another Gateway office, AND also seen another doctor in that office that would have confirmed this) that I had MULTIPLE contraindications that meant I NEVER should have been given it !!! On top of the contraindications, the HIGHEST rate of "side effect" (I call DEATH more than a side effect) IS DEATH in the first month after only the first injection. This is according to the FDA statistics themselves following over 50,000 cases. And according to the FDA study, 97.5% of those deaths are females age 60 and over without any contraindications other than age when your immune system weakens anyway. I was well over 70. And she smiled broadly the entire time she was injecting me. I was dramatically sick that entire next month, and 48 hrs (2 WHOLE days) trapped in my bed so weak I was unable to even roll over. I live alone and knew I was dying. I laid there the entire time wondering how I could call for help and envisioned the ambulance crew having to climb up the stairs with a stretcher to lift me onto it I was that weak. And even that meant they would have had to call the police to bash in my door leaving my home open for looters, vandals and robbers. It was TORTURE. Thank God, I barely made it through that horror and had a partially filled jug of water next to my bed on the floor to sip as soon as I had a bit of strength. .....….. I can only think of two possibilities ……. gross incompetence or she actually enjoys harming patients. Take your pick …….
Rude, in a hurry and could care less about you!
