Dr. Mahendra M Patel has the following 3 specialties
- Diagnostic Radiology
Radiologists help doctors get a closer look at what’s happening inside your body. If your primary care doctor wants to investigate your symptoms further, they may refer you to a radiologist to get an ultrasound or x-ray. Some radiologists specialize in mammography and breast imaging, which is who you see when you need a mammogram. A Radiologist can also determine if bones are broken or fractured after any kind of accident.
Radiologists are trained to perform MRIs and CT scans, both of which are used to determine the presence of diseases or disorders and help your doctor properly diagnose you. They can detect anything from tumors, bleeding and infections to bone and muscle disorders.
- Pediatric Cardiology
Pediatric cardiologists are pediatricians with additional, specialized, training in the heart health of your children. When infants are born with congenital heart disease or abnormal hearts, pediatric cardiologists get involved as soon as possible — sometimes before the child is even born.
Through specific testing, they can diagnose the problem and care for the child throughout their treatment, which could range from medication to surgery and transplants. Other heart conditions they treat include arrhythmias, heart murmurs, holes in the heart and viral infections that affect blood flow.
- 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.

My son was transfered to Dr. Patel from our wonderful lifelong cardiologist after he turned 18. Dr. Patel clearly did not want me, as a parent in my son's appointment. I allowed my child to talk openly but also had a few questions myself. Dr. Patel acted as though I wasn't in the room and informed my son he will only be allowed to come to his appointments in the future ALONE. My child is not comfortable with this and I think communication and inclusion of family is crucial with such an important health concern. I do not want any family member going to a doctor that excludes the family.
I was referred to Dr Patel through my son's Cardiologist for a second opinion. I found her to be a warm and personable doctor. She spoke to my son in a calm manner taking history from the beginning. She asked for concerns and thoughts and was very patient with answering all my questions. She had reviewed all his procedures and explained her diagnosis clearly and in a way that we could understand. This allowed us to decide what steps to take for the future with confidence. I found her knowledgeable in her field and foremost did not feel rushed throughout the appointment
What a wonderful doctor we found Dr. Manisha Patel. She was so professional, prompt, courteous, and reassuring when she delivered a normal result after performing a pediatric echo on my daughter, Ruth. I cannot say enough good things about her ways and bedside manner, not to mention her thoroughness Doing the exam, taking the history, etc. Even if you live elsewhere in the upstate, it is worth a drive to Greenville to see Dr. Manisha Patel if your child needs a pediatric cardiologist.
Dr. Patel was one of many specialists my son was referred to when he was just six days old. As a new mom I was overwhelmed and worried, but Dr. Patel put me at ease. She was sympathetic, patient and caring. I could tell she had my son's best interest in mind. I wish I could say this about all of the specialists I've encountered over the last year. But it was easy to see that Dr. Patel truly has a passion for helping others.
