Mount Nittany Health is pleased to announce the addition of radiation oncologist, Veeral Patel, MD, to Mount Nittany Physician Group.
“Most people believe radiation oncology is purely a technical field without much patient interaction, but the amount of contact I have with my patients on a daily basis is the greatest reward of my specialty,” said Dr. Patel. “I have the opportunity to help them get through difficult moments in their lives and also celebrate the good ones with them as well.”
Dr. Patel obtained his medical degree from the former University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ) in Newark, N.J. He completed his residency in internal medicine from UMDNJ and his residency in radiation oncology from SUNY Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, N.Y.
Mount Nittany Physician Group Radiation Oncology is located in the Lance and Ellen Shaner Cancer Pavilion at Mount Nittany Medical Center, where patients receive state-of-the-art therapy, using the most sophisticated diagnostic and radiation oncology systems in the field of cancer treatment today.
“As a radiation oncologist, I strive to provide my patients with a personalized approach to their cancer care,” Dr. Patel said. “Oncology is a constantly evolving field of medicine that requires working with other Mount Nittany Physician Group providers to deliver the best care to every patient that walks through our doors. My goal is that each of my patients can stay right here in State College and still get the best treatment available.”
