Avinash Patil, M.D.

EMERGENCY PHYSICIAN

United States

A graduate of the University of California Davis, Dr. Avinash Patil completed his residency at Washington University and undertook a fellowship at Loma Linda University in California. He currently practices at Santa Clara Medical Centre and Stanford Hospital. On more than one occasion Dr. Avi has received awards for his works in emergency medicine at Stanford University.

Dr. Avi practiced in India, the Solomon Islands, Honduras, Kenya, China and Ecuador. With more stamps in his passport than a travel writer and a side job as a whitewater raft guide, he sometimes seems more adrenalin-junkie nomad than MD. But there is a serious side to this adventure seeker - he loves to share his passion of the outdoors.
