Ronak Patel is trained as a general practitioner/primary care physician and is licensed as such in the state of Vermont. While he is a licensed physician in the State of Vermont, Georgia does not confer nor recognize such a degree and therefore prohibits the use the title “doctor”.
He truly believes in an integrative approach and is currently completing a certification from the Institute of Functional Medicine. His personal areas of interest are endocrinology, gastroenterology, and rheumatology. In general, he enjoys individualizing care for each of his patients while treating the root cause of their disease. He enjoys longer visits with patients to truly know them and effectively creating long-term treatment plans. He also believes in a preventative and proactive approach to healthcare.
In his time away from the office, he enjoys hiking the beautiful Southeast, cooking, traveling and spending time with his fiancé.
