Dr. Kris Patel’s journey to The Pearland Clinic began upon his graduation from India's Bangalore University in 1990, before whisking him across the ocean for further study at the Fort Wayne Medical Education Program. After a brief detour to Bloomington, Indiana, he finally set up permanent practice in Houston in 1998, where he has been practicing family medicine ever since. The polylingual doc––who speaks Hindi, Gujarati, Spanish, and English––specializes in skincare, allergies, and pediatric and adolescent care, and also treats those in need of urgent care for minor emergencies, such as injuries or swallowed pride. The clinic also boasts an aesthetic branch, where visages are revamped by certified aestheticians who perform chemical peels, facials, and microdermabrasion treatments as well as cosmetic enhancements, such as permanent cosmetics and tattoo removal.
