ABOUT EVOLVE PERSONAL HEALTH
Dr. Vim Patel has been practicing medicine since 2004, with the focus of his career in the field of Hospital Medicine. Over the years, he became dismayed with prescribing medications for patients who could have prevented their illnesses had they made healthier lifestyle choices. He found few credible resources where his patients could learn how to safely and effectively make those changes.
As he became increasingly disheartened, he would confer with his wife, Chitra, as to how to best utilize his medical training. He firmly believed that he needed to educate patients on addressing the root cause of their sicknesses. With an extensive background in meditation and in the process of completing her Life Coach training, Chitra had a different perspective. She believed that it was not the educational understanding alone that would bring about change, but rather patients’ awareness of themselves and how they react to the world around them.
They decided to integrate their perspectives to create Evolve Personal Health. Evolve is a much needed resource in the health space – an easily accessible place for patients to receive accurate medical information, learn tools that will bring about behavior change, and understand the importance of a healthy mindset.
In its beginning phase, Evolve was a concierge medical practice where patients could take yoga and meditation classes and have in-office appointments with the coaching team. To extend its reach beyond Tampa Bay, Evolve evolved from a local practice to a digital program available across the globe.

We believe that global change begins by positively improving local communities. With a desire to inspire families to approach life with purposeful intent, Evolve Personal Health has partnered with the Glazer Children’s Museum to provide a free event series – Mindfulness with Evolve. The series is designed for families to develop mindfulness through activities such as art, yoga, meditation, and thoughtful reflection.
Evolve’s founders are personally involved in raising awareness of human trafficking by organizing panel discussions, film screenings, and gatherings for Red Sand Project. We encourage all of our members and partners to promote social issues that they are personally drawn to. We believe compassion and altruism are the foundations for a strong community.
Evolve was designed to be minimal, peaceful, and thoughtful. Our space was inspired by a contemplative aesthetic often found in garden spaces and museums, with specifically chosen artwork and purposeful light filtration.
This is a “clean” space. We’ve taken steps to minimize electric and magnetic fields (EMF). Computers, phones, security systems, and speakers are hardwired; there are no wireless signals within the building.
Though our online programs cater to the greater population, our presence here in the Tampa community is important to us. By hosting community events, Evolve is a unique resource for people to be better. We invite you to stop by to say hello. We look forward to meeting you!
