Dr. Patel's Experience and Compassion Can Help You or Your Loved One

Helping Patients


Doctor Patel Psychiatrist Maryland As a psychiatrist, I enjoy helping people to deal with the challenges of emotional disturbance and to guide patients for achieving optimum feelings of wellness. Since 1992, I have been treating children, adolescents and adults with autism, depression, anxiety, developmental disabilities, eating disorder and bipolar disorders. The growth in my practice is a testimony to the caring, compassionate and personal treatment I have given my patients for the past 20 years. My primary goal is to help my patients manage their mental health challenges and improve their ability to lead active, engaged and productive lives. There are many exciting new therapies that have been developed for mental health challenges. In general, the earlier patients begin their treatment the outcome could be more positive. During each stages of your treatment I work in collaboration with your other health care providers.

If you or a loved one is suffering from Autistic Spectrum disorder, anxiety disorder, depression and bipolar disorder, please contact me for Comprehensive Psychiatric Evaluation. I believe in integrative medicine for the optimum wellness of the mind, body and soul.

"I consider myself so very fortunate to have been referred to Dr. Patel. I previously had a psychiatrist who I am sure was quite competent attending my care, but who had absolutely no personality or warmth. Dr. Patel is the complete opposite. She has big brown eyes that look directly into yours with understanding, care and concern making me feel safe. Her practice includes her own approach to breathing and relaxation, which is so vital to mental health and over all well being. I am excited to see what she will do as she expands her horizons in psychiatric medicine." - Jeanne, Montgomery County

"I have been a patient of Doctor Patel for several years. I really appreciate how much she cares. Thank you Dr. Patel." -  

"...I tried many psychiatrists who were located closer to my new home and place of work. None of them had the compassion or holistic support offered by Dr. Patel. Dr. Patel is a key member of my support network." - Kristen, Anne Arundel County

"...Dr. Patel genuinely cares about me. I do still have my ups and downs from time to time (but they are nowhere even close to the extremes they were before). Whenever I reach out to Dr. Patel, she responds and works with me to fix whatever the issue may be. She is extremely responsive and I cannot tell you how valuable and unusual this characteristic is in her field. She even reaches out to me to see how I am doing on a fairly regular basis and especially when I have been having any sort of problem." (Read More) - R.U., Montgomery County MD


Besides the psychiatric evaluation and treatments, Dr. Patel also educates patients on wellness of mind and body to remain healthy.
