Dr. Saachi Patel joined Miracle Mile Pediatrics in July 2020. As a native North Carolinian, she spent most of her life on the East Coast, before moving to sunny California in the Summer of 2020. She attended UNC-Chapel Hill (Go Heels!), and then worked as a Clinical Trials Assistant at Duke University for a year before starting medical school. She attended VCOM for medical school, and then moved to the Big Easy for pediatrics residency at Tulane University in New Orleans, LA.
Having always dreamt of living on the West Coast, she and her fiancé decided Los Angeles was the best fit for the next chapter in their lives. Dr. Patel enjoys seeing patients of all ages, but has a soft spot for newborns and toddlers. The amount of growth and development that takes place during the first few years is so important, fast-paced, and essential. It provides the thrill she craves in primary care pediatrics!
When she’s not working, she enjoys spending time with her fiancé, Kishan, enjoying the beautiful weather and hiking. She also likes outdoor concerts, true-crime documentaries, watching UNC basketball, and indulging at dessert shops around the neighborhood.
She is very excited to be a part of Miracle Mile Pediatrics, and looks forward to providing excellent care to the children of Los Angeles.
