Dr. Nilesh Mehta, MD

Gastroenterologist

Professional statement

“I counted many physicians among my family members when I was young, so I had early exposure to the life of a physician. I was often able to join them at work in the hospital and learn from them. I was extremely fascinated with gastroenterology as a medical student and as a resident in internal medicine. The work of many clinicians and researchers in gastroenterology is a constant source of inspiration to me. It combines an analysis of procedures and medical knowledge that is unique. “Today, I most enjoy the basic scientific research and clinical trials that will advance not only our knowledge of gastroenterology but the quality and effectiveness of our patient care. I believe in delivering nothing but the best care and service for everyone. Patients need the warmth and comfort of being treated by someone they can trust.” In his spare time, Dr. Mehta enjoys tennis, ping pong, family time and photography.

The visit was fine. The waiting time was extremely long even with an appointment. I searched Zocdoc for someone closes to me and can see patients on the weekend. Dr. Mehta meets my criteria. He suggested an endoscopy based on mysymptoms. I was asked to go to their facility in Long Island. It is a procedure requires sedation and an escort. I thought it should be an one-time thing. I agreed and visited their facility in Long Island which was also a good experience with the doctors and nurses. But getting the results of the biopsy was terrible. I confirmed my appointment with them over the phone two days before. Then the next day in the afternoon, they called me and told me the doctor no longer sees patients in New York City. It was the weekend of Labor Day. I was desperately to know the result. I really need that result before a third biopsy. It is the fear of seeding (metastasis). The receptionist texted the doctor and said the doctor would contact me. It never happened during the Labor Day weekend. There is no follow up after the holiday. If there is no such an experience, I would probably still recommend this doctor to people in Long Island. But I think I will not recommend this doctor to my friends. When you are stressful undergoing a diagnosis to rule out cancer, they seem so indifferent about patients.

Amazing. Absolutely thorough, did not rush at all. Took the time to understand everything going on and provided explanations for all he thought was going in and what he was doing. Recommended a minor procedure to confirm what he thought. Gotme in the same day and provided immediate results. Great bedside manner too. Staff was extremely friendly as well.

I can’t speak highly enough of Dr Mehta. I booked with him just after seeing his good reviews on ZocDoc. I’m pre-bariatric and just needed an endoscopy as a requirement for surgery. Dr Mehta was so warm and encouraging about mysurgery prospects when we met. Additionally, he was so concerned with making sure I got my endoscopy promptly, as to not hold up my surgery, that he offered to squeeze me in to do the procedure for me that afternoon. I went right over to his other facility which was immaculate, with the kindest staff I’ve ever met. The procedure was quick and Dr Mehta was warm and professional the whole time. I can’t remember the last time I felt so genuinely cared about by a medical professional, especially one I just met. Dr Mehta has restored my faith that there are still doctors that genuinely care about their patients.

I was rather impressed with the office and doctor. There was hardly a wait time. The front desk processed my paper work and insurance info in a timely fashion. There was no delay. Dr Mehta was great in explaining what myoptions were in treatment. Didn't push me towards getting a procedure done like other GIs have previously done for me. Happy I found this office. Will continue coming here for my GI needs 100%.

Dr Mehta was very patient with all my questions and answered each and every one of them. I did not feel rushed at all. He was very informative and had great bedside manner. The staff was great too. No issues withscheduling my procedure, all authorizations were approved before I came in for treatment and I had nothing to worry about.

Great doctor, did everything he could to help me and really went out of his way to give me a variety of options to help my stomach including yoga poses and supplements to try which I really appreciated. He has weekendhours which is great- but EVERYONE wants the weekend hours and they over-book so I've had ridiculously long waits here on the weekend.

I went to a GI because my primary care referred me due to symptoms I was having for over a year and a half. After explaining my symptoms, the doctor did not listen to my stomach or do anything other thantell me I was eating too much fiber. He also conducted an H. pylori test whose results were lost. In the end, I found out I had celiac disease, from another doctor. Worthless waste.

I made my appointment the night before. It was an emergency. I called the next day and explained my situation to Dr. Mehta, he suggested I have an endoscopy immediately and set me up to have one that day with hiswife who is also an gi. She was excellent. My overall experience was great. I am very pleased with my decision to go to this doctor. I would highly recomend both doctors!
