"We can live without religion and meditation, but we cannot survive without human affection".

- Dalai Lama.

I am very proud to be a father of Ishaan Patel, a 13 year-old Founder and CEO of, a non-profit organization. The mission of Planting Pencils is to raise awareness that every child in the world has a right to basic, free, quality education and to give support to underfunded schools in low-income areas in the US and underdeveloped countries where many children have no access or limited access to basic education

I am a physician, entrepreneur, investor, engineer, MBA candidate, husband and a father of two. I am fascinated with the complexity of the human body and the ability to elevate healthcare and quality of life through the transformative power of technology.

As a co-founder of a thriving medical practice, we combine science and technology with a strong focus on prevention and empowerment. We leverage deep relationships to build trust and emphasize long-term holistic solutions so our patients gain the self-control to lead healthier and happier lives.

Faced with increased operating costs and reduced reimbursement rates amid ever-changing healthcare reform, my engineering background has played a key role in streamlining operations and introducing innovative solutions to sustain growth while improving patient access, quality of care, and disease outcomes.

There is no blueprint for success. To me, it is putting my heart and soul into everything I do. I witness this everyday through the success stories and relationships with my patients. We must adapt and strive to give our best in order to reach our fullest potential.

I am interested in emerging entrepreneurial opportunities, exchange of knowledge in areas of science, technology, business, finance, education, and building professional relationships in all areas mentioned.
