Dr. Pruthvi Patel is a family medicine physician at United Regional Physician Group.
Dr. Patel earned her medical degree from the Medical University of Silesia in Katowice, Poland, devoting two years to clinical rotations in Brooklyn, New York. She completed family medicine residency in 2020 at the DeTar Healthcare System in Victoria, Texas.
She has always wanted to be a doctor, even carrying a toy doctor’s kit as a young girl. She found her passion in Family Medicine because of the ability to treat a wide age range. “I love children. I love working with pediatrics, adolescents, middle-aged, and geriatrics. They’re all the exact population I wanted to work with, and I can truly make a difference in their health and wellbeing.” She believes the continuity of care and developing a relationship with the same provider over several stages of life is very important.
Whether her patients are feeling ill, trying to get healthier, or managing chronic conditions, Dr. Patel says it’s gratifying to help them figure out what works for them. “When they see their numbers go in the right direction and everything is finally falling into place, it’s satisfying to see them happy with their health.”
During her free time, Dr. Patel enjoys traveling with her husband. She also finds joy in reading novels, cooking, baking, sewing, and making crafts.
