By seeing patients at Atrium Medical Center through our partnership with Premier Health, patients will have expanded access to quality care.”

Dr. Patel earned a Bachelor of Arts in Biology and Music from Wellesley College in Massachusetts and her Doctor of Medicine from the University of Vermont College of Medicine. She completed a residency in general surgery at the University of Vermont – Fletcher Allen Health Care and a fellowship in cardiothoracic surgery at Rush Presbyterian St. Luke's Medical Center in Chicago. She is certified by the American Board of Thoracic Surgery and is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.

“I am excited to be a part of The Christ Hospital Health Network, a system that is known around the world as a center of excellence for heart and vascular care,” said Dr. Patel. “Practicing medicine at both The Christ Hospital and Premier Health systems will allow for better collaboration giving patients access to cutting-edge technology, world-class clinical trials and new therapies. The opportunity to be part of this great system is an ideal situation for me.”

Her commitment to putting the patient first and treating each individual with compassion and integrity is at the core of Dr. Patel’s care philosophy.
