Specialties

Dr. Neela K Patel has the following 3 specialties

  • Hospice & Palliative Medicine
  • Geriatric Medicine

    A geriatric specialist is a physician who treats the elderly population and the conditions that most commonly affect them. These doctors have special training in the effects of aging on the body and mind of a patient.
    Geriatric specialists treat common ailments faced by senior citizens, such as frailty, incontinence, memory problems, arthritis, senility, decreased functioning and more.
    In addition, geriatric specialists keep abreast of the different medications that an elderly person is prescribed to treat their more complex health issues in order to decrease adverse side effects and avoid dangerous drug interactions.

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.

For the really old

This is an excellent doctor for the genuinely aged. I found myself being assessed as if I were rather disabled. I was tested for dementia, deafness, vision, gait, and asked about such things as urinary continence. My blood pressure, which was in the 140/80 range was ignored. The doctor felt that most routine tests were unnecessary. Blood was drawn but no follow-up appointment to discuss results was scheduled. I felt like I was regarded as peculiarly healthy (which I am) but on the slippery slope to meet the Grim Reaper, therefore, not worth testing in a routine way. I would not recommend this clinic unless you are genuinely, really geriatric, fumbling around and wetting your pants. I was not quite ready for this. Bless you if you are. We'll all join you someday!

Doctor who really cares!!

I am 90 years old and a retired nurse and must say this is the first time I have found a doctor who is so kind, caring and empathetic. She always wears a smile on her face and is there for you no matter what. She is so popular and in demand everyone wants to see her. She hires the best her whole team of doctors, nurse practitioners and physician attendants and all her office staff are as wonderful and great as she is. She always tells me we always hire the best, "we are all here as this is our purpose, it is a pleasure to take care of you."

Dr. Neela Patel...OUTSTANDING!

Changed from a Dr. that retired and we loved. My mom needed a new caring specialist and I know we have found one in Dr. Patel. What a great doctor and staff based on our first visit. She was wonderful as she worked with my mom and was always asking for my help with answers.
