Archanda Patel MD

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.
