ABOUT THE PHYSICIAN AND COACH

My name is Dr. Ravi A. Patel. I pursued MD(Doctor of Medicine, from Philippines), MPH(Master in Public Health, from Philippines). I was born and brought up in India. I pursued basic medical education, medical intership and masters degree in public health in Philippines. I spent 7 years to complete this education from 2007 to 2014.

After completing bachelors and masters degree in Philippines, I came back to India and wrote the licensure exam to practice as a doctor in India. With god’s grace I cleared this licensure exam in first trial through self-study. Then, while I was preparing for specialization exams I worked as a medical officer for 5 years in Indian hospitals. At present I am in United States of America, New York to pursue further specialization.

In the year 2019, I achieved several breakthroughs, two of them being very significant and created transformational impact on my life.

One, I was able to become Arfeen Khan Certified Coach. Arfeen Khan is a man who spent 25 years of his life to transform lives of people for good and is on the mission to impact more lives to make this world a better place to live in.

Another breakthrough was soon after joining Arfeen khan community of ambitious people. This was my dream since quite a long time to take action to built an NGO and contribute to community empowerment in developing countries, especially my home country where I belong to. I have been procrastinating this dream for last few years but soon after joining Arfeen Khan I achieved this breakthrough and registered a NGO named “Maanav Swayamsevak Foundation”. Soon we also performed our first free health camp in the potter’s community and did primary community profiling, Health checkup, Primary health intervention for a group of 50 people of that community.

As I went through the education at various levels, I started realizing that contribution is an important part of a person’s life as one enters adulthood stage. I have been contributing in hospital setups, at Arfeen Khan community, and through NGO, this blog is one more effort to scale up contribution with one more realization that health education and awareness is the core of living a healthy and passionate life.

Through health coaching i wish to help more and more people keep their body and mind at the peak to live a successful and a pleasant life. Lets get-together and ensure that every person avails basic requirement to be at their peak levels of health for living a great life!
