Dr. Mrunal Patel

Board Member, Medical Director

Dr. Patel has been a practicing Gastroenterologist in Midland for the past 20 years. He has been vegetarian most of his life, but he and his wife decided to change to a plant-based diet a few years ago after carefully evaluating the available scientific data. Dr. Patel strongly believes and preaches everyday in his medical practice about the role of diet and lifestyle changes in reversing chronic diseases. Dr. Patel believes that by joining hands with other like-minded friends in promoting Healthy City, everyone in our community will have the support and also avail themselves of the true facts about diet and nutrition so we can all be healthier together.

Dr. Patel’s favorite plant-based meal is his homemade sweet potato lasagna.
