Dr. Patel wants Gold Star Pediatrics to be a one-of-a-kind treasure in North Port, Florida, where families are all treated fairly, with care, kindness, compassion, high quality medical care and a personalized approach. Every child is different, and sometimes doctors try to find everything thats "wrong" with your child instead of focusing on their positive strengths. While we provide medical care to help the illnesses, we also provide a variety of information on the fostering of a positive healthy relationship with your child, meeting their educational needs, and ensuring they progress in a positive direction! We are about child's after school activities, grades, educational plans, family environment and situation. We want every child to grow up being loved and treasured. Dr. Patel is here to be an advocate for you, your child, and your family.
