Quality Care with Your Time in Mind
By Meredith Knight
Shruja Patel named her primary care practice Complete Care Physicians for a reason. She wants to offer her patients a true medical home where they can receive all the care they need in a reasonable amount of time.
“My patients don’t want to wait an hour to see their doctor,” she said. “So, my team and I have streamlined care by having patients fill out their health history online at home and then be able to come into the office and wait a reasonable amount of time to see me. And there’s no need to run all over town to get medical testing for your care. As your primary care doctor, we want to provide all your care right here where you already feel comfortable.”
Unlike with a large corporate practice, Dr. Patel’s patients know they’ll see her on every visit. “That allows us to develop a relationship of mutual trust and respect,” she said.
“The most important time I can spend with a patient is time just listening to them, hearing their concerns, and understanding their unique health challenges.”
Dr. Patel advocates proactive and preventive care. “It’s far better to do the right things now, so we don’t have to address health issues down the line,” she said. “We want to act now, not react later when there’s a problem.”
Complete Care Physicians is conveniently located close to Katy Mills mall, so you can see your doctor in your own neighborhood. “My family has been in the Katy area for 35 years and have experience serving the community,” Dr. Patel said. “Now, as a licensed and board-certified family medicine physician, I’m looking forward to returning to my hometown, delivering excellent patient care and giving back to Katy and the surrounding communities.”
