Dr. Vipul R. Patel
CEO / President
Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Absolute Injury and Pain Physicians, Dr. Vipul R. Patel, possesses an exemplary work ethic and an entrepreneurial spirit combined with a compassionate heart and great sense of humor.
At the beginning of his journey Dr. Patel’s plan was to attend business school, but unfortunately, those plans were put on hold. At the time he was suffering from severe back pain and some disc issues which were greatly affecting his daily activities. He knew that people had found relief through chiropractic treatment, but he was skeptical about chiropractic care since his prior belief was only in medical care. Finally, at the advice of a family member, he reluctantly decided to see a chiropractor. After only a few visits Dr. Patel was surprised to experience over 50% relief of his symptoms. These results made him truly believe that chiropractic can make a difference in people’s lives and at that moment he decided to attend chiropractic school.
Dr. Vipul R. Patel graduated from Life University in 2001, where he earned his Doctor of Chiropractic degree. Upon graduation, Dr. Patel began working as an intern with Dr. Andrew Robert at his chiropractic practice in Jacksonville, FL. During his time with Dr. Robert he realized that chiropractic treatment can not only provide pain relief, but can also help an individual live their normal daily life and prevent future joint issues. After six months of working under Dr. Robert’s guidance Dr. Patel decided that someday he would like to open his own clinic.
In March 2002, Dr. Robert decided to retire and Dr. Patel made the bold move to purchase his clinic. Six months later he opened his second clinic and by 2004 he had expanded to five clinics. In 2007, Dr. Patel converted his practices into multidisciplinary offices that now include Physical Medicine services, Pain Management services, Chiropractic services, Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation. Absolute Injury and Pain Physicians has since expanded to a total of seven multidisciplinary offices in the greater Jacksonville area.
