Important News from Dr. Patel
Dear Parents and Patients,
I am writing to let you know about my plans to join Pediatric Health Care Alliance and move to their office in Wesley Chapel. This is an important move that will allow my practice to grow and provide a larger network of support for my patients and for me. Joining PHCA also offers a stronger business structure with more personnel and resources, which will allow me more time with my patients. All patient families are welcome and encouraged to join me at PHCA Wesley Chapel to continue your child’s care with me. Your patient records will automatically move with me, and of course I will continue to have same-day appointments available for your urgent needs.
Additionally, I am pleased that joining PHCA includes offering more resources for you as patients, including evening and weekend hours, 24/7 pediatric nurse triage and on-call pediatrician, enhanced electronic health records, improved appointment reminders, and more. I hope to continue your child’s health care alongside my new partners at Pediatric Health Care Alliance. My first day of appointments at my new office is Thursday, February 20. Please review the information provided below, including contact information, services, and what to expect.. Thank you and I look forward to seeing you at your next visit.
Jaydeep Patel, M.D.
