Dr. Patel was born in Toronto and grew up in the Markham area.

Having earned his Doctorate in 2007, Dr. Patel moved to Cincinnati, Ohio, where he practiced for three years in a variety of settings: surgical, and private practice. He was also part of the medical team that performed examinations on the Cincinnati Bengals NFL team. Dr. Patel moved back to Toronto in 2010 and became the Lead Optometrist of The Herzig Eye Institute. As director of the Dry Eye Clinic, he was the first practitioner in North America to use the Lipiflow Thermal Pulsation device. Dr. Patel works hard to stay at the cutting-edge of eye health.
