Meet the Team


Dr. Pooja Patel is originally from the sunny state of Florida, right outside of the Panama City Beach area.  She attended the University of West Florida for her Bachelors degree and soon after moved to Marietta, GA, where she graduated from Life University, the world’s leader in chiropractic education. She then moved to Ohio to be with her husband and to build her dream practice in Shaker Heights, OH.

She has always had a passion for helping people in their journey towards a healthier lifestyle and knew that was possible through providing Chiropractic care after seeing her mother benefit from being under care.  She has a strong dedication to her community and to guiding those around her to achieve better health. She has experienced the health benefits from removing nerve interference through specific and scientific chiropractic care, in her years of practice.  Dr. Patel has practiced in one of Ohio's largest chiropractic offices and is excited to serve the beautiful Shaker Heights community.

Chiropractic Assistant

Monae knew from the time she was 5 that she wanted to be in the field of helping people. At the time she thought Dentistry was her calling. After receiving her Bachelors in Science from Kent State University she decided that dental may not be her dream anymore. She has worked in many forms of the medical field now from manufacturing medical devices to Quality Control of pharmaceutical drugs. This has given her a broad knowledge in several different industries.

She has now stepped into Chiropractic Care and fell in love instantly. The more she learns about the world of Chiropractic, she's more driven towards the environment. She didn't know the benefits of Chiropractic care until she started undergoing care herself, right here in the office. She strives to learn more about the specialty everyday in hopes of helping you all function and live your best life!
