Meet Dr. Patel

Feeling drawn to science, the inner workings of the body and fostering relationships with people, Dr. Patel pursued his medical degree at St. George’s University School of Medicine and completed his residency at Beth Israel Hospital in New York City.

Following residency, Dr. Patel moved back to his native state of New Jersey and opened his own practices: FirstMed Health in Northvale and One Hudson Medical in Edgewater. He is affiliated with Englewood Hospital and Medical Center and Palisades Medical Center.

Dr. Patel was named a Bergen County Top Doc in 2018 and has been recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance for the Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition Program in from 2012-2015. He is also a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians.

An advocate for preventive and holistic care, Dr. Patel enjoys taking care of his mental and physical health by exercising, socializing with friends and spending time with his family.

Why Choose Us

How It Works

Concerned about numerous healthcare trends that are negatively affecting doctor-patient relationships and the way care is delivered, Dr. Patel has collaborated with Castle Connolly Private Health Partners (CCPHP) to create a unique, concierge or membership-based practice model that provides a more optimized healthcare experience for both patients and providers.

In this model, Dr. Patel has considerably fewer patients than typical primary care doctors. This allows him to have enough time to provide each and every patient with personalized, unhurried care. Members of AVP CCPHP pay an affordable annual fee to take advantage of a wide array of member benefits and enjoy a more convenient, connected, and compassionate approach to healthcare.

Membership fees are payable to AVP CCPHP, LLC, a business entity formed by Dr. Patel and CCPHP that is separate from his medical practice. Dr. Patel provides all professional services through his practice, One Hudson Medical. Since the membership fees do not pay for any insurance-covered healthcare services, we recommend that our members maintain their health insurance. Contact us for more information.

Practice Philosophy

As a physician, my greatest satisfaction is derived from working closely and comprehensively with my patients in an unhurried environment, so that I can be my patients’ advocate and advisor regarding longevity and quality of life.

In order to alleviate some of the barriers in today’s healthcare environment that interfere with my ability to continue to practice this way, I have collaborated with Castle Connolly Private Health Partners, LLC (CCPHP), to create a new concierge program called AVP CCPHP. The program provides my patients with a wide variety of membership amenities to enhance their care experience, such as access to the innovative SENS Solution® Wellness Program, which includes a personal health coach who collaborates with me to optimize their wellbeing.

The patient-physician relationship is what I value the most as a practitioner. With this model, I will be able to provide a connected, convenient, collaborative care approach on a more ongoing and consistent basis. Ultimately, this program allows me to get back to putting you, my patient, first.

You can learn more about the program as well as all of the benefits of Membership here and by calling (201) 371-5859.
