BIO:

Dr Aniruddh Patel grew up in Gujarat India until his 13th birthday, at which time he moved with his family to Greenville SC.  His interest in Gastroenterology budded as an undergraduate student researching the causes of cachexia in mice with colon cancer and continued throughout medical school and residency. Training in Internal Medicine has helped him be confident in treating patients with multi system disorders while giving him an opportunity to pursue a career in Gastroenterology. Whether it is a patient with a disease as benign viral gastroenteritis or as serious as colon cancer, he feels honored to have the opportunity to provide medical and emotional comfort to his patients while being able to continually expand his base of knowledge in this field.

If he were not a physician, Dr. Patel would have pursued a career in Nutritional Science due to his interests in severe illnesses causing malnutrition. In his spare time, Dr. Patel enjoys playing his guitar, golfing, hiking, and spending time with family.

The physicians at Digestive Healthcare of Georgia are closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. In the interest of everyone’s health and safety we ask all patients and their guests who have a fever (100° or above), symptoms of a respiratory infection, or who may have traveled to a restricted country or may have been exposed to a person with known COVID-19, the flu or any other communicable disease to reschedule their appointments or procedures. You will not be charged for canceling/rescheduling your appointment. We will be following CDC and Georgia Department of Public Health’s recommendations for screening and management of patients. If you are at all concerned you may have a serious infectious disease, your best course of action is to seek care at your primary care physician’s office or local hospital’s emergency department.

We have implemented a telemedicine visit for our patients who are unable to be in the office for their appointment. Please call our office to schedule a telemedicine visit with your provider.
