Philosophy of Care

I feel honored to be able to work with children and their families through my clinical work, and these interactions are what drive my passion for medicine. I’m grateful for all the wonderful families I have been able to take care of, and strongly feel the connection between the patient and physician should be one where both parties can understand, listen, and respect one another.

I believe that particularly in pediatrics, medicine is not just something to be practiced within the clinic, but is to address all aspects of the care, from the child’s entire well-being, to the impact on the family, and school and household concerns. This belief drives both how I practice both in clinic and focus my research, and I believe both enrich each other as a result. 

PROFESSIONAL HISTORY

Clinical care is the main focus of Dr. Archana Patel's career, in both general child neurology and the subspecialty of pediatric epilepsy. Dr. Patel is also dedicated to global health child neurology, with both direct research interests in the development of methods to deliver care in low resource regions, as well as interests in broader public health measures of working in policy and advocacy directed toward access to care, stigma, and education. 

This clinician offers Virtual Visits (video consultations) for follow-up care in clinically-appropriate cases.
