Dr. Padmaja Patel

Board Member

Dr. Patel has been a practicing internist in Midland for the last two decades. She recently became certified in Plant Based Nutrition through the eCornell T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies.

Being a lifelong vegetarian, Dr. Patel and her husband embarked on a whole-food, plant-based diet about three years ago after looking at the compelling medical evidence in regards to prevention, treatment and reversal of some chronic health conditions.

Dr. Patel’s passion and enthusiasm fueled her desire to take this movement to another level by joining the Healthy City Board, as well as becoming the Medical Director for the Midland Health Lifestyle Medicine Center which provides patients with a medically supervised comprehensive lifestyle program. Dr. Patel loves making plant based versions of traditional Indian dishes in her free time.
