Dr. Padmaja Patel

Board Member, Medical Director

Dr. Patel has been a practicing internist in Midland for the last two decades. She is certified in Plant Based Nutrition through the eCornell T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies. Dr. Patel is a Diplomate of the American Board of Lifestyle Medicine and American Board of Internal Medicine.

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.
