Dr. Raj Patel received his Masters degree in Physiology from Rutgers University and his medical degree from Robert Wood Johnson Medical School (formerly Rutgers Medical School) in New Jersey. Thereafter, he finished a three-year residency and earned his Board Certification in Family Medicine. Along with his clinical practice over the past twenty years, Dr. Patel has also been involved in clinical research. In 1999 he was one of a select group of physicians chosen to do clinical research using Ampligen in CFIDS patients in conjunction with Hemispherx Laboratories.
Over the years, Dr. Patel has specialized in treating patients with Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD) as well as Lyme and other tick borne diseases, and most recently biotoxin illness from exposure to water damaged buildings.
He began working with autistic children in 1999 and to date has helped over 700 children on the road to recovery. Dr. Patel also works with other childhood developmental conditions like ADD/ADHD, OCD and developmental delay. He is an active member of Defeat Autism Now (DAN).
Dr. Patel also has extensive experience in treating Lyme disease. In 2005 he first began treating chronic Lyme disease. Dr. Patel has over the past few years been able to refine his approach to treating chronic Lyme sufferers. He has found incredible success in treating individuals with chronic Lyme disease by combining antibiotic treatment with hormonal support and Dr. Shoemaker’s protocol for removing biotoxins and repairing the Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS) seen in Lyme Disease. Dr. Patel is an active member of the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS). He has also completed advanced training in pediatric Lyme disease and been a speaker at Lyme conferences.
Dr. Patel first began looking into Dr. Shoemaker’s incredible work on CIRS resulting from exposure to water damaged buildings (WDB) in 2010. He found many of his “lyme patients” who had experienced only partial improvement, turned out to be simultaneously suffering from toxic exposure to WBD. When they began responding dramatically to simply getting out of their home and taking cholestyramine, Dr. Patel’s interest was piqued to learn more about Dr. Shoemaker’s treatment approach to this illness. To date, Dr. Patel continues to see patients making impressive recoveries from this debilitating illness.
