Manisha Patel, M.D., FACOG

Specialist in Obstetrics and Gynecology


Dr. Manisha Patel is a board-certified specialist in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Galen. Raised in Birmingham, Alabama, she completed her undergrad, medical schooling, and residency at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. After residency, Dr. Patel spent the two years teaching residents at the University of Alabama at Birmingham before she and her husband moved to Chattanooga. She has been working in private practice for the past 15 years. Dr. Patel is a member of many local medical societies including Chattanooga-Hamilton County Medical Society, Tennessee Medical Society, American College of OB/GYN.

Dr. Patel’s lifelong passion for medicine was inspired by her uncle who was a general surgeon that spent his life helping others. Her care philosophy is caring for women as if they were her own mother or sister. She is an advocate for women’s health for all ages. She strives to teach and help make proactive choices and changes for her patient’s overall health. While she enjoys every aspect of being an OB/GYN doctor, she believes there is something special about being a part of the most life changing moments of a women’s life with the birth of her child. She enjoys making long lasting relationships with her patients and being updated on their lives.

When away from the office, Dr. Patel loves to spend time with her three kids and her husband whether it be at home or exploring downtown Chattanooga. Her ideal day off would include playing tennis, trying out new recipes, and watching Hindi movies.
