Ashish Patel, MD
My training at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, a leading orthopaedic hospital, created a strong desire to educate my patients regarding their neck and back condition, as I believe a well-informed patient can better participate during a joint decision-making process. I am focused on maximizing the overall patient experience and streamlining high-quality spine care for my patients.
