Anish Patel, MD, MBA
Hi! I'm Anish, a die-hard Texas Longhorn from the Rose Capital of America (Tyler, Texas), where I apparently get my southern charm from. In my superfluous spare time, I enjoy producing and mixing music, playing pool, cooking, making cocktails, watching sports, and developing new hobbies. I think long walks on the beach are overrated; I'd rather just eat tacos.

Hi! My name is Kim and I’m from Scottsdale, AZ (yes, it is a dry heat). I pseudo-couples matched with my husband who was a UH IM grad, now CCF Heme-Onc fellow, and we're newbies to the Midwest! Our spare time is filled with lots of eating at new restaurants, working out, going to concerts, and hanging out with the best co-residents. I'm a budding plant mom and am likely your dog's number 1 fan.

My favorite procedures are the bladder outlet procedures, in particular, HOLEPs--so immediately gratifying at the end to see your handiwork!
