Specialties

Dr. Prakash M Patel has the following 1 specialty

  • Pediatrics

    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.

Dr. Patel is the best pediatrician. My 3 year old daughter loves him. He is very thorough and no nonsense. I appreciate that he doesn't give medication unless there is an active infection. His staff is equally as wonderful. I have never not been able to have my child seen the day that I need/want. If you call after hours, he returns your call quickly. I have even had him call to check on my child over the weekend when she has been in his office on a Friday. I would recommend him to anyone.

Great Pediatrician!!!!!

If you listen to him and do what he says you will see he is always right I now have 3 children and have been going to his office over the past 10 almost 11 years he is great with the kids although they are afraid at first they will warm up to him !! I like that he only gives medicine if there is an active infection my middle child got RSV at 1 1/2years and he placed her in the hospital I felt bad bc I had no idea how bad she was until all these nurses started working on her Dr Patel saw her daily and made her stay 5days she recovered well and we have Dr Patel to thank!!
