Madhavi Patel is a board certified nurse practitioner in adult-gerontology primary care. Prior to becoming a nurse practitioner, she worked as a registered nurse for 6 years. It was during this time she realized her passion for working with and caring for the geriatric population. As she studied at New York University towards her Master’s degree, she decided to pursue a double major which included palliative care where she learned more about pain and symptom management. She was able to do several clinical rotations at New York City hospitals including Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and New York University Langone Medical Center where she learned from top providers in oncology and palliative care. She also rotated through a VA hospital’s pain department where she further developed an interest in pain management.
Madhavi is well-versed in both medication and interventional pain management. What she loves most about her job is building relationships with her patients so she can effectively treat them in the hopes of increasing their daily function. She also loves to teach and will take the time to explain different treatments with her patients.
