Dr. Patel completed his undergraduate education at Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas and went to medical school at the University of Cincinnati. He conducted his OB/GYN residency at Good Samaritan Hospital in Cincinnati. Dr. Patel opened a private practice in Northern Kentucky and was a OB/GYN provider for over ten years. He then decided to enter the field of addiction medicine in 2014. In the Summer of 2015, Dr. Patel was introduced to Dr. Ryan and the team at BrightView. In October of 2015, he joined the BrightView team as a staff physician and in September of 2016 accepted a Medical Director position within the organization.
Dr. Patel hopes that his background in obstetrics will help the local OB/GYN community feel comfortable with Brightview’s ability to assist in the management of the addicted pregnant population. Together with the continued commitment of the entire staff at Brightview and the community at large, he looks forward to providing addiction services and treatment until there is a quell in the current opioid epidemic.
