    About me

    Dr. Neil Patel started his career at SIU and joined the Pediatric Hospitalist group. He was at SIU Medicine for seven years, and in 2020, Dr. Patel decided to pursue a different career path. He started as a Pediatric Hospitalist with a Newborn focus. Dr. Patel enjoyed his work, but after three years, he realized his true passion for teaching and working in clinical informatics. Now he is back at SIU to pursue his passion for teaching, academics, research, clinical informatics, and caring for inpatient pediatric patients.
