Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

August 8, 2019 - Memorial Health University Physicians’ Adult Primary Care practice on Lexington Avenue recently welcomed Dr. Maulik A. Patel, who specializes in geriatric medicine.

Patel, a Savannah native, is a graduate of Mercer University School of Medicine. He chose geriatrics as his specialty because of its unique challenges.

“In caring for adults, I learned there’s usually a medicine that can help solve a problem,” he said. “With older adults, the problem can often be fixed by taking away a medication. This allows me to look for non-pharmacologic ways to help patients, but use only medications that will definitely provide a benefit.”

His goal is to empower his patients. “I want to make patients the best managers of their own health,” he said. “I do that by educating them about their illness and giving them ways to prevent and treat diseases and their complications. Most importantly, I help them learn about the medicines they are taking and the potential adverse effects.”

Patel enjoys meditating and watching documentaries. He and his wife are the parents of two young sons. They are active in their spiritual community at BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir.

Patel can be reached at (912) 350-7171 or online at MemorialHealthDoctors.com.
