Background: Married to Shalin Patel. Extramural Professional Activities: I love spending time with my son and husband. We love exploring the many parks around Greenville and hiking in the area. I enjoy playing tennis and biking. I usually participate in aerobics classes three - four times a week. I enjoy traveling (on medical missions and for pleasure) as I believe it truly expands the perspective and appreciation I hold for living in the US. Community Service: Outreach clinical missions to Botswana, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, and Cuba.
Teaching Interest(s): Major Teaching Responsibilities (current): As a pediatric cardiologist with training in internal medicine and pediatrics, I am very much looking forward to the opportunity to work with medical students, nursing students, residents, and other trainees as they learn more about our specialty. I have a particular interest in fostering the growth of internal medicine/pediatric combined residency students especially in the areas of transition education and adult congenital heart disease. Major Clinical Interests and Responsibilities: I have been primarily trained as a pediatric cardiologist with specific interests in adult congenital heart disease. I spent a significant amount of my training understanding the needs of Youth with Special Health Care Needs (YSHCN) and, in particular, the challenge of transitioning care from pediatrics to internal medicine. I will be participating in the inpatient and outpatient care of our patients from the day they are born onward into their adult years. I will be involved in the imaging of these patients though the modality of echocardiography. We have offices in Anderson, Greenville, Spartanburg, and Greer through which I will have the opportunity to provide care for these patients.
