Dr. Yeral Patel

Welcome to a "Perfect YOUth"

I am a Family Medicine Doctor, Board Certified in Anti-Aging, Regenerative and PRP Musculosketal Therapy.

I want to introduce myself as the newest Doctor to join Dr. Pacelli at Ideal Spine and Rehab. I graduated in 2005 with a bachelor’s in Biological Science from UCI. I attended AUC School of Medicine and graduated in 2009 to receive my Medical Doctorate Degree (MD). I completed my residency at Kaiser Permanente Riverside where I also had the privilege to serve as the co-chief resident of my class in 2012. I have also worked for Kaiser Permanente in Orange County for 3 years.

My patient’s have always told me that I have exceeded their expectations when it comes to patient care, since I am: compassionate, confident, professional, knowledgeable, I live to promote a healthy lifestyle, respectfully, and honestly. I feel there is no greater reward or compliment that I may receive from my patient’s than when they refer their friends and family members to see me.

​My mission simply is to provide the highest quality and compassionate care to all patients by helping them achieve and maintain optimal health, wellness, beauty, and to prevent the signs of aging from both inside and out.

​Dr. Patel practices an integrative medicine approach to treat and prevent chronic medical conditions. Dr. Patel utilizes a combination of both ground breaking allopathic and homeopathic treatments to achieve the best results for all patients.

I look forward to seeing you soon for your health needs, at Ideal Spine and Rehab
