Photo on 2013-04-26 at 13.59Dr. Tanvi Patel grew up in San Jose, California, and moved to Los Angeles for college. She graduated magna cum laude from the University of Southern California with a B.S. degree in Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Studies. She earned her medical degree at the University of Chicago and did her Diagnostic Radiology residency at Northwestern. After braving many long, harsh Windy City winters, she eagerly moved back to the Bay Area to complete her fellowship training in Women’s Imaging at UCSF. She happily accepted a position at Valley Radiology Medical Associates after the completion of her fellowship. She is currently VRMA’s Medical Director of Ultrasound.

In her free time, Dr. Patel loves to enjoy the beautiful Bay Area with her husband, and spend time with family and friends. She also enjoys hiking, cooking/baking, and traveling.
