Dr. Bipin and Pratima Patel
Both Dr. Bipin Patel and his wife, Pratima are return volunteers with Operation Medical. Dr. Patel is a general surgeon residing in Broom County, NY, specializing in colorectal and endoscopic procedures and currently practicing at a Level II Trauma Surgery Program. He has previously participated in 6 medical mission trips – 2 with Doctors Without Borders and 4 with Operation Medical. Those of us who have had the pleasure to volunteer alongside of him, refer to him as a surgeon warrior, as he is the first to arrive in the morning and often, the last to leave the hospital at night.
When not working, or serving others, Bipin and his wife enjoy walking, bicycling, meditation and reading. Pratima is also a Yoga instructor. We are so blessed to have this couple back again for another medical mission camp.
