I was told that I would be seen within 25 minutes. After over an hour, I told the receptionist that I would have to leave because I had other appointments. Only then did the doctor see me. Even then I was rushed out of the office.

Dr. Mehta is a wonderful doctor. He was extremely professional and courteous. He was very patient and listened to me carefully. He immediately ran some test and resolved my issue when another doctor couldn’t diagnose me. I feel so much betterafter suffering from my ears and throat for over 2 months. Do not hesitate to make an appointment with Dr. Mehta. You might have to wait a bit but it’s worth waiting because you will get first class service with this physician.

It was my first visit to Dr. Mehta, i.e., he never saw me before. On arrival, I was asked by the receptionist to pay the co-pay amount, and a payment towards my insurance deductible. When I asked what the deductible wasfor, the receptionist explained that this is for procedures that I am about to have. She gave me 5 codes for the procedures so that I could verify them with my insurance, and I couldn't understand why would I need any, let alone all of these procedures, considering that the doctor hasn't even spoken to me yet, but I was required to pre-pay for them anyway. I heard before that some doctors' offices have expensive equipment and apply it to every patient regardless of whether they need it or not, to compensate for the lower contracted rates for the office visit itself. Clearly, this is one of such offices.

He spoke down to me a lot, responding to my description of symptoms like I was someone he needed to tolerate rather than work with to figure out what was wrong. The only reason I see him is because Dr. StaceySilvers is so tough to get in to see, and her office is far away. His staff is also brusque, but that's probably due to a shortage of people working the front desk. The phone will often ring for minutes without being answered, simply because the receptionist is trying to handle a room full of waiting patients and paperwork.

He was just amazing. After 1 and a half year, my Son had been suffering from pins and needles in his head. We saw five different doctors...none could solve our issue. He nailed it. No wasted time. He deserves every plaqueon his office walls, and more! God bless, Dr. Mehta

The receptionist looked as if it physically pained her to do her job. When I arrived she was taking a personal call on her cell phone, switching to Spanish (which I speak) when I arrived in an attempt to conceal thecontent of the conversation. Five minutes later she answered a call on the office line, and told the patient "I don't speak Spanish. You'll have to call back tomorrow." She was almost comically rude to every visitor throughout my appointment, actively ignoring them as she texted or otherwise played with her cell phone. Dr. Mehta, conversely, was very pleasant.

Other than a bit of wait, I had a great experience with Dr. Mehta. He was very thorough and explained everything he was doing in a very clear way. He took his time and had a kind manner that also putme at ease. Dr. Mehta followed up a couple of times and made sure he personally to me on the phone after some xrays came back. Even though the xrays were precautionary as there was a clear pre-xray diagnosis, and there was no follow-up necessary, he made sure I spoke to him, not another member of his staff in case I had any questions, and made sure I knew the best way to get in touch in case I had any follow-up questions.
