About Dr. Shah Patel
In 2011, Dr. Kavita Shah Patel opened her outpatient practice in the medical center to begin her dream of providing comprehensive, evidence-based, compassionate care to all individuals, accepting all insurances and working with uninsured individuals. Since that time, she has expanded her practice to Katy and incorporated numerous services to better serve her patients. Dr. Shah Patel completed her undergraduate training at The University of Texas at Austin and graduated summa cum laude. She completed medical school and Internal Medicine training at Baylor College of Medicine, and her chief residency in 1998. Over the past 20 plus years she has cared for critically ill patients in the acute care setting as a hospitalist at St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital, and in the emergency room setting at The Veteran's Affairs Hospital, and MD Anderson Cancer Center. Her passion is preventative medicine, patient education, and the management of acute and chronic illnesses in the ambulatory setting; her focus now is on her clinics in the medical center and Katy. Dr. Shah stays active and up-to-date on the latest advancements in medicine. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, writing, and staying active with her children and her husband, Rupal Patel, an interventional nephrologist. She is fortunate to have a large extended family all located in Houston!
As a solo practitioner, Dr. Shah Patel's aim is to create the highest quality practice that is personal, professional, and above all, puts the patient first. Her goal is for her and her team to truly know every patient, and to tailor treatment to their particular needs. This personal touch is often lost in large, overly busy practices. Over the years she has expanded her practice to include services she feels truly benefits her patients. These include flu vaccinations, convenient on-site laboratory and cardiac testing, blood pressure monitoring that communicates electronically to the practice, allergy testing, and more. Every patient has 24/7 accessibility to Dr. Shah through calls, emails, and secure texting and timely responsiveness is a top priority for the practice. Incorporating input from her patients and her team, she hopes to continue to provide comprehensive and compassionate care, listen to her patients with empathy and understanding, while offering state-of-the-art office technology and services.
Lead Medical Assistant
My name is Cynthia and I was born and raised in Houston. My family is from Honduras and that is the culture I grew up with. My favorite thing about what I do is being able to help patients and provide them comfort whenever it’s needed - whether it be assistance via a phone call or something more urgent. I feel very lucky to work in Dr. Shah’s practice, alongside Conchita, and to be able to know all our patients.
My name is Maria Conchita and I am from Venezuela, a beautiful country of stunning landscapes and surprising sights. I am the wife of a wonderful man and a very proud mom of 3 beautiful kids. I am a kind, happy, and friendly person and I always try to help others. I was a lawyer in Venezuela and though I’m not practicing in the US, I like helping patients through this noble job and am working on my English everyday to serve our patients better with Cynthia and Dr Shah. I’m grateful to Dr Shah for this opportunity and feel she’s the best boss and doctor that I know.
