Dr. Metha was great when he eventually showed up. He was able to diagnose my issue and offer solutions pretty quickly. And I appreciate that he didn't suggest any unnecessary tests. However, the wait time was ridiculous, given that this wasa work day and I had to go back to work

It's my third time visiting Dr Mehta, and as previous experiences it was very kind and always offering different solutions to the problem I have. I really like the approach that he has to the physical problems and the fact thathe really try to find out the real source of the problem, no just attack the symptoms with some pills. He goes deeper in the analysis, and then finds a real solution that will eliminate the problem from the cause.

I've been a patient of Dr. Mehta's for about 5 years. During that time, he has studied my symptoms and has recommended the proper treatments to help me. As I get older and have more aches and pains, Dr. Mehta will be there to help me lead a quality life.

I have been to Dr. Mehta's office 3 times and i have have been very happy with the services Dr. Mehta provides. I live 2 hours away from his office, but it is well worth the drive. He is a veryoutgoing doctor and he likes to explain in detail, the procedures before he performs them. I have been going for knee pain and i am very very happy and pain free, when i leave his office. I highly recommend this doctor to anyone.

Today was actually almost perfect visit/treatment. I haven't had to wait too long (which to me is very important and I pay attention to it when I choose new doctors. I hate wasting time and not always I can get aride). I was checked in and soon after moved to the procedure room. Everything went fantastic and I feel great! I wish and I hope it will stay this way.... Thank you very much :(

The long wait in the waiting room was easily offset by the professionalism and demeanor of the office staff. Dr. Mehta was attentive and listened to my concerns. He asked if needed medication refills and offered treatment solutions for my backissues. Dr. Mehta's bedside manner is fantastic. He connects with his patients with caring, intelligence and humor. I would definitely recommend his services.

Same review but for a different doctor. This is more with the reality of just pain management. A lot of pain management docs don't really care about the emotional side of pain. It's just let me get you in and outof the office. Dr. Mehta is unfortunately like that. Great medical knowledge. He knows his stuff, I tell him I gave up on PT and he was kind of like oh well.

Doctor that knows his stuff, but doesn't quite take the time with his patients. Goes way too quickly in an appointment and doesn't take the time to really understand what his patients are going through. A good doctor cares more about getting you in and out.
