BAKERSFIELD CALIF. — Dr. Ravi Patel, founder of Comprehensive Blood and Cancer Center, is this year's John Brock Community Service award recipient.

CBCC is a resource for a patient to receive diagnostic, medical, surgical and holistic therapies.
Dr. Patel immigrated to America with his wife to complete his medical training, he then moved to Bakersfield in 1985 and subsequently founding CBCC with a group of young physicians, thus spear heading the growth of CBCC from a 1,200 square foot office with one employee, to a 75,000+ square foot campus employing more than 250 people.
Usually, the John Brock Community Service Award recipient is honored during a dinner in early September.
Given the guidance from the California and Kern County Departments of Public Health on restrictions for large gatherings due to COVID-19, the Board will announce the date of that recognition event in the future.
