We Remember Dr. Neil S. Patel

Dr. Neil PatelIt is with deep sadness and heavy hearts that we inform you of the death of our colleague and friend, Neil Patel, MD, who passed away on Thursday, January 6th, 2022. We will all miss him more than words can express.

A true servant leader and world-class surgeon, Dr. Patel worked tirelessly in pursuit of his vision: to meet the needs of New York City’s underserved populations with honor and integrity, while simultaneously innovating the patient experience.

Beginning in the Bronx, Dr. Patel assembled a team of world-class providers and medical staff, who went on to rapidly expand the model into New York’s largest network of high-volume ophthalmology practices. Together, they manage the most complex of clinical cases while remaining steadfast in providing efficient, patient-centered care.

Dr. Patel will be remembered, not only for his brilliance as a surgeon, but also for his understated kindness, compassion, and immense visionary spirit.
