About Palak B Patel, MD

  • Dr. Patel has relocated her practice to ARC Round Rock, where she is accepting new patients. Her last day seeing patients at ARC Far West Medical Tower was Friday, December 30, 2022. Please see below for physicians she recommends to new patients wanting to establish care at ARC. Read letter.


    Dr. Patel grew up in India and spent her last teen years in Austin. In her free time, Dr. Patel enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, and cooking. She also lists viewing the most popular TV series, reviving old hobbies, and self-care among her free time activities. Her favorite area locale is Hamilton Pool.

I was inspired by my grandfather to pursue a career in medicine. I chose Otolaryngology (ENT) as my specialty because it encompasses everything, both clinical medicine and a diverse surgical practice, from toddlers to seniors. My practice addresses the many diseases and issues of the head and neck, and diverse techniques to address them. I believe in arming the patients with the needed knowledge about their disease process so they can participate in informed decision-making, and together we can achieve the best outcomes.
