    A general practitioner is similar to a family practitioner in that they treat patients of all ages with a variety of health concerns. These doctors treat everyday ailments, some acute and chronic diseases, and also provid health checkups, physicals, inoculations and preventative care.

Dr. Rafiq Patel

This probably isn't the proper place for this and it might never be seen but it's the only way we know to send condolences and prayers for Dr. Patel's family, staff, friends and long-time patients. He will be missed. We are grateful for all the care he gave us for over 35 years. Ronnie and Peggy Hamilton
