I’m Dr. Trisha Patel, and I’m a board-certified dermatologist with U.S. Dermatology Partners here in Dallas, Texas.
What Do You Enjoy Most About Being a Dermatologist?
One of the great things about dermatology for me is that it gives me the opportunity to practice in a wide variety of age groups from young children all the way up to our elderly population. In particular for children– I really love taking care of their acute conditions, they’re acute rashes, and things to that degree. For all others, I mostly enjoy doing skin checks because it allows them to gain confidence and be comfortable in their own skin.
Why Did You Choose to Practice in Dallas?
The reason why I chose to practice in Dallas was because I grew up in this area–Sherman, Texas. I really enjoyed the community that I was surrounded by and felt like this would be a great place to give back and serve the individuals that helped me get to where I am today.
