Dr. Sheila Patel Joins the Chopra Center Medical Staff
We are pleased to announce the newest member of the Chopra Center medical team –Sheila Patel, M.D. Dr. Patel is a board-certified family physician with expertise in preventive medicine and the traditional healing arts, including Ayurveda.
“I believe in a holistic individualized approach to patient care that incorporates a wide variety of healing modalities. Every person is unique, so what works for one person may not be effective for someone else. I work with patients to develop individual treatments plans that address body, mind, and spirit,” said Dr. Patel.
Dr. Patel is a compassionate, caring doctor who earned her M.D. at the University of Wisconsin Medical School and completed her residency in family medicine at the Ventura County Medical Center in Southern California. For more than a decade, she has been practicing family medicine in a variety of settings.
“Before coming to the Chopra Center, I chose to practice in small communities for the last twelve years – initially in southeast Alaska, and then in rural Wisconsin, where I was able to develop close relationships with patients and their families and provide patient-centered care in a supportive environment. I was drawn to serve as a physician at the Chopra Center because I could continue to offer individualized medical care in a loving, nurturing setting where patients feel empowered and supported on their healing path.”
Dr. Patel’s mind-body medical consultations are available for weekly guests of the Perfect Health Panchakarma program, daily outpatients, and visitors to the Chopra Center in Carlsbad, California.
