Greetings!

Welcome to my practice. I am board certified in Allergy and Immunology.

 

Thank you for choosing Academy Allergy Asthma and Sinus Center. I am dedicated to providing you personalized, high-quality care. I have been proudly serving South Colorado for eons, since 1988.

You may have heard of the name 'Patel', which is like 'Smith' in the state of Gujarat, India. I grew up in a small-town, Sarkhej in Gujarat, India. I underwent extensive medical training until my hair turned grey, including a fellowship in allergy and immunology at National Jewish Health, Denver, the #1 respiratory hospital in the United States. 

I am married and the father of two boys. Not only am I proud of being an American and US citizen, but I am also proud of my Indian culture and heritage - I am a vegetarian and practicing Hindu.

To get the best out of your visit, may I make some suggestions to you?

 

Shaking Hands: To prevent spreading infections from one patient to another, I will not shake hands with you. 

Listening to you: Tell me whatever you have in mind - your reason for the visit, your symptoms, your concerns, your questions, etc. When you are talking, I will not interrupt you. If I do not say anything, it does not mean I am not listening to you. I may make notes in your medical records while you are talking.

Examination: I will examine you. My nurse will help me when I examine you. She will instruct you what to do, such as open your mouth, take a deep breath, etc. With her help, I will be able to focus on examining you. If you have difficulty understanding my accent, she will help make our interactions smoother. 

Recommendations: After the examination, I will write my recommendations in the chart. Next, my nurse will explain to you my recommendations: tests, medications, how to use the medications, what is the diagnosis, and so on. She will email you some of the information. She will send your prescriptions electronically.  If I have samples, my nurse will give them to you.  

 

By the way, I train my nurses extensively about answering the common questions. If she does not know the answer to your questions, she will write them down in the chart and inform me; we will answer the questions.  If we forget to answer your questions, please remind us. 
 

I am proud of my staff. I will refer to my medical assistants as 'nurses'. They are not R.N. I am using the word ‘nurse’ in a generic sense; for example, a banker or plumber becomes a nurse while nursing his mother or father. 

 

Thank you 

 

Respectfully,
