Experience healthcare coaching from a unique perspective
Ronak Patel, ND, is a board certified and licensed Naturopathic Physician (Vermont). He grew up in Connecticut and went to pharmacy school in Albany, NY where he received a bachelor’s degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences. As a graduate from the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, AZ, Dr. Patel received the prestigious Daphne Blayden Award for his “commitment to naturopathic medicine, academic excellence, compassion, perseverance, a loving sense of humor and a positive, supportive outlook.”
Ronak Patel is trained as a general practitioner/primary care physician and is licensed as such in the state of Vermont. While he is a licensed physician in the State of Vermont, Georgia confers nor recognizes no such degree and therefore prohibits him from using the title of physician or doctor. He is not recognized by the Georgia Composite Medical Board as being a licensable doctor at this time (we are currently striving for licensure in the State of Georgia to hopefully change this in the near future; please let us know if you would like to support this effort). www.ganp.org
He truly believes in an integrative approach, using the best of both worlds of pharmaceutical and nutraceutical interventions. His personal areas of interest are endocrinology, gastroenterology, and rheumatology. In general, Ronak enjoys individualizing care for each of his patients while treating the root cause of their dis-ease. He enjoys longer visits with patients to truly know them and effectively creating long-term treatment plans.
In his time away from the office, he enjoys hiking, cooking, traveling and watching Seinfeld reruns.
Great question. Simple answer is no. Although some lab testing may be covered, it is unlikely to be fully covered under most insurance plans. The program is setup to be truly individualized and it’s nice not have any surprise bills or stress involved with your health.
A typical initial consult with me lasts about 60 minutes. In this visit, a full history, lab work and initial plan will be discussed. That being said, every plan is unique and tailored to the patient.
I am a licensed Naturopathic doctor with a strong background in pharmaceutical sciences. I went to pharmacy school in my undergraduate studies, which allowed for a solid foundation in conventional medicine. I also attended 1 of the 7 accredited ND programs in North America at the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine and Health Sciences. Although I rarely use conventional methods, I am well trained in medical diagnosis and treatment. I love being part of the new face of healthcare. I consider myself an expert in the use of nutrition, functional lab testing and interpretation, botanical medicine and professional supplementation.
Yes, I want to help as many people as I can, especially with the expertise I offer with Naturopathic medicine. As the program is set up over a virtual platform, I can help anyone locally, nationally and internationally!
