Specialties

Dr. Shrita Patel has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

The worst doctor I ever met.

Her arrogance and ignorance was appalling. I came for suspected parathyroid problem and was in a debilitated state. She claimed that was not possible to have happened from hyper parathyroid problems. She told me to return in six months after prescribing calcium supplements. I returned after the six months, still in terrible condition. She then took a test that showed I had hyperparathyroidism and needed surgery. I have since learned this condition can be diagnosed in 24hours with a blood test. I had surgery and had 31/2 of my 4 para thyroid so removed. Because of Dr. Patel, I delayed treatment for 6 months. I also had been prescribed drugs to help me sleep. My parathyroid were so ramped up sleep was almost impossible. So I now was on harmful drugs for an additional 6 months because of Dr. Patel's failure to perform the blood test immediately.. Her attitude during my encounters with her was smug and arrogant.Thankfully I have recovered in spite of her poor medical skills, at least when she was treating me..

Excellent

Ive not had to see many specialists in my life but Dr Patel is amazing. Simply put, she "gets it." She asks probing questions, explains things clearly, &, most importantly, she listens. She is patient as I ask questions & never invalidates my concerns. Ive never felt rushed & Ive always felt Id received individual care & attention. When I was not well I had such a feeling of helplessness. Dr Patel assessed me in whole, not just my symptoms. She created a detailed action plan which gave me a much-needed sense of control. I genuinely cannot say enough good things about her-one of the most thorough and capable doctors I have seen. Ever. I am crushed she is returning to research. While she will no doubt do great things I am sorry others will not benefit from her care and expertise the way I have.

Too busy to bother with patient care

Dr repeatedly checked and responded to text messages during the visit. Diagnosis arrived serveral weeks later from the receptionist. Neither receptionist, nor doctor will return calls. Waited 2+ hours. Staff is rude. Despite active condition doctor recommendations do not meet standard of care. Save your time and find an endocrinologist that actually cares about their patient. I

Mrs Sebring

Dr Patel is an excellent and caring professional. She put me at my ease immediately. Gently chastises when I haven't followed-through on recommendations. Referred me to some other specialists who were equally caring. She has been very responsive, even outside of office hrs. I highly recommend her!
