He has over 10 years of patient-care experience working with a broad range of patients and medical conditions through his diverse work experiences.
A native of Houston, Milan Patel has had a passion for helping others from an early age. This played a significant role throughout his life, that eventually led him to study biology as an undergrad at the University of Texas – Austin with the intent of going into the healthcare field. He spent the next several years working at Houston Methodist Hospital as a Radiographic Technologist. Milan found passion for patient-care through his bedside experiences with patients in the ICUs and other critical care units. His experiences working directly with the Orthopedic surgeons during their cases and a strong desire to have a greater impact in terms of a patient’s medical care or treatment plan lead him to pursue a career in Orthotics and Prosthetics.
“I have been working with GCP for over 6 years now as the Office Manager and absolutely love what I do! I love seeing the positive influence and changes we bring to our patients. I take pride in Gulf Coast Prosthetics, as a team we do everything we can to make sure our patients get the best patient care possible. GCP creates long-lasting and true relationships with our patients that go further than prosthetics. My life outside of work is spent with my husband of 22 years and our 3 boys, who all keep me pretty busy. I love spending time with my family, bowling, and being at the lake.”
“I have worked for GCP for three years now. My responsibilities are to make sure I maintain a clean and safe environment for my patients and coworkers. I also assist our Prosthetists melt, cut, and laminate prosthetic limbs. I enjoy working for this company because we work hard to make sure the patient is very well taken care of. Seeing patients realize that walking again IS possible is a truly uplifting and rewarding experience that I love being apart of.”
