About Bhavesh Patel MD
Dr. Bhavesh Patel is an expert in Age Management Medicine and Men’s Health, an area that is under-discussed but has huge implications in vitality and longevity. Dr. Patel is a Board Certified physician who has been in clinical practice for over 14 years, save for a 2 year stint on Wall Street where he worked as a research analyst for Biotechnology and Pharma companies at an investment bank. For those years, he attended every major medical conference and interviewed top researchers across the country to understand and form opinions on the latest cutting edge research in drug development.
However, realizing that the torture of worrying about other peoples money was much more stressful than saving lives in the ER, he decided to return to medicine. But rather than focus on disease and problem-pill based medicine, his interests had shifted to optimal wellness and preventative medicine. He founded the Chicago Cenegenics practice over 7 years ago and has treated hundreds of patients looking for optimal wellness. Optimal wellness and age management relies on an integrated and comprehensive approach of testing and management to achieve outstanding health and vigor. Extensive testing and education that addresses nutrition, fitness, nutrient supplementation, hormone management, and medical management — synergistically together as a whole system — are the key levers that need to be pulled to achieve optimal health.
Dr. Patel is also trained in Functional Medicine, an integrated discipline that considers the body as a whole organism rather than a collection of separate organ systems.
He lives in Chicago with his wife and daughters. He enjoys great music, Chicago sports, nerdy geek stuff, solving problems, tennis, biking. He wishes he was better at a skateboard. He doesn’t get on Facebook or Twitter too often.
Dr. Patel graduated with his medical degree from Rush University in 1999 and completed his residency at UIC/Illinois Masonic in 2002.
