Patient Reviews Request Appointment
Kruti Patel, DO, is a medical oncologist and hematologist who strives to provide the best comprehensive care for patients by developing a relationship with them and offering compassionate support throughout their journey. Her areas of specialty include medical hematology, clinical research, and bone marrow transplant.
Dr. Patel finds her work rewarding because she is inspired by the strength patients have as they fight their disease. “It truly is an honor to care for a patient fighting cancer. There can be a lot of ups-and-downs throughout a patient’s cancer journey, and I have the opportunity to hold their hands and walk with them as they navigate their disease. I care for my patients as if they were my own family members.”
Dr. Patel’s patient care philosophy closely aligns with OHC’s core principles. “Cancer patient care is best delivered through a team approach. OHC has a strong team of doctors, nurses, and ancillary staff who compliment their expertise with compassion and communication.”
Dr. Patel looks forward to contributing to innovation in the field of oncology through involvement in clinical trials and drug development. “Oncology is an exciting and evolving field. There are new emerging treatments in chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and CAR-T.”
In her free time, Dr. Patel enjoys traveling, hiking, and spending time with her family.
