Dr. Chirag R. PatelDr. Patel is the founder of www.YourNaturalYouth.com and a board certified family physician who also specializes in wound care.  He has practiced as a physician for 10 years and has witnessed the ups and downs of our medical system.  After frustration with dealing with bureaucratic hospitals and insurance companies,

Dr. Patel concluded that the only way any health care system will improve and be sustainable is if the system puts the power back into the patients’ hands and make them feel responsible and educated about their own health.

He has diligently studied the core reasons as to why people get ill and feel chronically fatigued.  After several years of research, he has gone to the internet to empower patients.  The internet is full of false and misleading medical information from non-physicians.  He believes that it is due time that patients have access to physicians online (from all specialties, led by a trusted physician) who can provide them with reliable unbiased information.

This will be a reputable multi-speciality online community of board certified physicians they can trust and a place they can call their online medical home.  Does one truly believe they can address all their concerns in a 15 minute visit with their primary care doctor that occurs a few times per year?  Dr. Patel and his colleagues are here to fill the gap.

Dr. Patel has worn several hats. He has worked as a solo physician, a wound care physician, an immediate care physician and has also played a consultant role for several medical organizations.  He prides himself in keeping medicine honest and simple wherein, there is room for both western medicine and other types of therapies in our healthcare system. One of his goals is to spread as much truthful and reliable medical information to all of those that feel that they are not getting their fair share from the medical system and are dealing with the realities of aging.

Dr. Patel is a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians, American Medical Association, American Osteopathic Association, and the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine.  He attended University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign where he received a bachelors in Microbiology and completed medical school at Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine. He went on to complete his medical residency training in an esteemed community hospital in the suburbs of Chicago and also has received additional specialty certification in wound care for the aging population.

When Dr. Patel takes his doctor hat off he enjoys spending time with his family, playing tennis, golf, basketball, traveling and assisting local and international charities in raising funds.
