Priya Patel PA-C earned a Bachelor of Science in Premedical Health Sciences from MCPHS University in Boston, MA in 2014. She then completed the physician assistant program at MCPHS University and earned hermaster's degree in Physician Assistant Studies in 2016. PA Patel is board certified with the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA).
After starting her career in the urgent care, PA Patel quickly became dissatisfied with conventional approaches and learned that most of her patients needed further education regarding lifestyle, nutrition and stress management. She decided to pursue integrative/functional medicine where she could thoroughly discuss these important factors with her patients and take a proactive approach to healing rather than be reactive/chase symptoms with pharmaceuticals. She has a desire to evaluate the underlying cause, prevent chronic illness and provide an improved quality of life.
After shadowing at Tustin Longevity Center for a couple months, PA Patel knew this was where she was meant to practice and was hired as the clinic’s physician assistant, ready to guide her patients to good health through an individualized approach, focusing on holistic, natural therapies and integrating conventional, western medicine when needed.
