For more than two decades, Dr. Darshan Kapadia has treated patients throughout the Dallas area at his Collin County private practice, Internal Medicine Associates of West Plano. Board certified in internal medicine, Dr. Kapadia’s practice philosophy involves partnering with his patients, young adults to senior citizens, to maintain a healthy lifestyle and prevent complications from chronic disease. He places a strong emphasis on preventive medicine and patient education, particularly in the areas of cardiovascular disease and promoting wellness. He specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of obesity, hypertension, diabetes, cholesterol/lipids, allergy, asthma, and thyroid disease. “Patient education is extremely important to me,” Dr. Kapadia says. “This is why I spend approximately an hour with new patients and 30 minutes on their follow-up visits. This is not a high-volume practice, but a patient-centered medical home dedicated to the highest quality, prevention, early diagnosis, and treatment of chronic diseases.”
Patients appreciate that Dr. Kapadia and his medical partner are available 24 hours, seven days a week, 365 days a year and offer same-day sick appointments. “We are physicians, yes, but we strive to maintain wellness in our patients and truly improve their quality of life,” Dr. Kapadia says. “This practice style has led to very few hospital admissions per year during the past 20 years. Our patients know they will see us when they have an appointment—no one else.”
Dr. Kapadia is the senior internist on staff at Texas Health Plano and has served as chairman of the department of internal medicine and president of the medical staff. He is a former member of the Texas Health Resources Institutional Review Board and Collin County Adult Indigent Clinic. He is the medical director of the Collin County Community Health Center, on the Physicians Advisory Council for the Partnership for Peak Healthcare Performance in DFW, and an active member of the American College of Physicians, Texas Medical Association, and the Collin County Medical Society.
Verified Patient Reviews
Excellent, spent about an hour with me in total, taking the time to get to know me. Did entire exam himself, no physician assistants or nurses doing weighing, B/P or anything else. Has an interest in overall health & wellness, doesn't process patients like an assembly line.
Excellent doctor. Actually takes the time to listen to your concerns and explains exactly what's going on thoroughly, instead of trying to get you out as fast as possible. Really hard to find a doctor like him these days.
Kind, helpful staff. Most thorough visit with a physician I've EVER had. SO glad to finally find the "right" doctor!
Very professional, took time to review all my health history.
I'm a physician and have been going to Darshan for years. He is the BEST!!
Dr. Kapadia is the best doctor I've ever been to. I've never had a doctor take so much time and care to make sure I had no more questions and understood what was going on. I'll be using him as my primary doctor from now on.
It's terrific to actually be able to talk with a doctor.
Great bedside manner. Spent time explaining any concerns and recommendations. Great visit.
