Although he was born in India, Dr. Darshak Patel grew up in Massachusetts not far from Worcester. After graduating from medical school, he became a Family Practice physician but also spent some time working for walk-in care providers. “I found I really enjoyed providing walk-in care. As a primary care doctor, you usually don’t do a lot of procedures and I found I really enjoyed that aspect as well as the faster pace,” he explains. “I liked the balance of different types of care.”

One of the reasons Dr. Patel enjoys working at ReadyMED PLUS is that it provides many extra services for patients including ultrasound imaging, CT scans, and IV infusions. “The technology we have here can really make a difference,” he explains. “For instance, with a CT scanner you can diagnose appendicitis on the spot, and get that patient quickly to the operating room for treatment. I think that’s pretty impressive.”

Dr. Patel always makes a point to take as much time as needed when working with patients. “Walk-in care is very fast-paced but that doesn’t mean you can compromise the care that you give. You have to make sure that you know all the different issues your patient is facing. So I always take my time to make my assessment and make sure my patients get the care they need.”

When he is not busy at ReadyMED, Dr. Patel enjoys spending time with his wife and children. He also loves watching movies, going to the gym, listening to music, and sports such as rowing and biking.
