Dr. Anup Patel named as Medical Professional of the Year by Make-A-Wish®

Make-A-Wish® Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana has named Dr. Anup Patel as Medical Professional of the Year in central Ohio. The surprise announcement was made at the Columbus BIG Wish® Gala on Saturday, March 14, 2015.

As attending pediatric neurologist at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and Assistant Professor of Clinical Pediatrics and Neurology at The Ohio State University College of Medicine, Dr. Patel has referred more than 25 children to Make-A-Wish and is part of the Make-A-Wish medical advisory council. “Dr. Patel has been instrumental in helping Make-A-Wish grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions in central Ohio,” says Senior Medical Outreach Manager Kim Pettingell. “He has seen the positive impact a wish can have on a child’s life and has become a referral leader in the Columbus medical community.”

“A wish is about hope and the future. It focuses a child on what life can be and offers a distraction from illness,” says Dr. Patel. “It recharges the child and strengthens their spirit.”

Dr. Patel was presented his award by local wish kid Dae’Shaun, who had his wish granted to meet Chris Paul of the LA Clippers thanks to Dr. Patel’s referral.
