Get to Know Dr. Patel
Born in Chicago, Dr. Patel fell in love with optometry after shadowing several doctors and realizing he could take care of a patient’s whole health through the eyes. He relocated to Texas during optometry school and considers himself a “Texan at heart”. When he’s not taking care of his patients, Dr. Patel is an avid bowler, enjoys traveling, and spending time with his two (very spoiled) dogs.
