Environmental Health Center–Buffalo (EHC Buffalo) was founded by Kalpana Patel, MD, FAAP, FAAEM, DABEM, a board-certified and leading environmental medicine specialist. Dr. Patel practices Functional, Integrative, and Environmental Medicine. Dr. Patel established her practice to offer specialized care to patients in Buffalo, New York, and throughout New York State, as well as other domestic and international patients. She provides comprehensive evaluations of a wide range of medical issues and diseases, with a focus on the indoor and outdoor environments in which patients live and work.

Dr. Patel diagnoses and treats a variety of conditions, including autism, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, allergies, autoimmune diseases, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic Lyme disease, nutritional deficiencies, problems related to toxic mold exposure, as well as food, allergy, chemical, and EMF sensitivities — all in an environmentally controlled office. EHC Buffalo features a specially designed office with an airlock system, special flooring, and an innovative and protective ventilation system.

Together with her professional, friendly staff, Dr. Patel uses a problem-oriented approach to reach a medical diagnosis. The team works to find and treat the root cause of the problem, rather than just applying a bandage to temporarily fix a chronic medical condition. Patients often find relief from months or years of pain and suffering with Dr. Patel’s expert care, even after visiting 5-15 other doctors who couldn’t help.

The team at EHC Buffalo ensures all patients receive comprehensive medical evaluations to identify the root cause and provide the best treatment plan possible, customized to each patient’s individual needs. Dr. Patel’s environmental medicine expertise is appropriate for both children and adults, including the elderly, who suffer from chronic infections and other medical conditions. She also treats patients who’ve had difficulties pinpointing a proper diagnosis or finding effective treatments to alleviate chronic symptoms, pain, and suffering lasting 10-15 years or longer.
