Dr. Patel discovered her passion for optometry at a young age as she needed vision correction for almost her entire life. She completed her undergraduate degree at Rutgers University and moved to New York City in pursuit of her doctoral degree from SUNY College of Optometry. She graduated at the top of her class at SUNY, where she was a member of Beta Sigma Kappa Honor Society. She is skilled in practicing medical optometry to treat and manage ocular disease, fit specialty contact lenses, and co-manage patients with other medical professionals.
Dr. Patel is extremely passionate about her quality of care. She finds it truly amazing how something as simple as providing a comprehensive eye exam can improve the overall quality of life for her patients. She is proud of the role she gets to play in providing care for such a fundamental part of peoples’ everyday lives, their vision.
Some of her passions outside of patient care include traveling, photography, and spending time with her friends and family.
