It was a *very* appropriate and welcome appointment that resulted in further tests in the near future. *He* was exceedingly thorough and polite despite the facts that *my* primary care physician had *not* covered all *likely* problems duringthe past ten years. *I* was, and *am*, very *impressed* by Dr. Mehta's very widespread and in-depth methodologies and very *thankful* that *I* was referred to him, *merely*, for gastrointestinal specialist procedures.

I went in for an endoscopy and left feeling like nothing had even happened (which is good)! He let me know exactly what to expect and how I may feel afterwards and I had zero discomfort or side effects. I feel very comfortable under his care.

Dr. Mehta, introduced himself and shook my hand. He listened to my intestinal issues and made some good suggestions of what I could do. He also ordered some tests to help him determine any factors that are the cause of my symptoms. He was very personable.

Absolutely love the Doctor and his staff! It was one of the best experiences at an office-ever! I was so impressed from the time I walked in the door and until I walked out. The Doctor managed time well between gettinghistory, exam, conversation, setting a plan, and following through with his office staff in front of me. I felt comfortable and like he truly cared. What a nice feeling to know you are not just another patient. Five stars!

I was very impressed by the efficiency of the practice. I arrived 30 minutes earlier than my scheduled appointment as they requested and was immediately greeted with several papers to sign that appeared to have been prepared in advance. Aftera short wait, I was called and screened by a nurse. Within minutes of her leaving the room, Dr. Mehta arrived at precisely the time of my appointment. Wow!

Amazing. This is how healthcare should be everywhere. 1. I am a new patient and access was faster than expected. 2. The web-based communications were very easy to read and timed as needs progressed. 3. Everything ran on-time, in fact, alittle early-amazing. 4. Dr. Mehta, Dr. Norwood, Crystal, Tim, Jennifer and others (forgive my anesthesia memory fogginess on names of everyone) were courteous, professional and available. 5. Lastly, what they didn't do delighted me. This includes the corny and time-wasting "sit at eye level" to me or bother me with rounding all the time. 6. Lastly, Dr. Mehta explained everything well and shared next steps. Thank you all.

It was an *outstanding* appointment about a newly-detected future procedure which was discovered during a routine Colonoscopy. *He* foresaw the questions in *my* mind and those of *my* Wife and had answers *immediately*. While another Colonoscopywith added surgery is *not* an expected or deeply *desired* follow-up for *me*, *I* will prepare for it *most* confident that it will be completed with the intended results and minimal inconveniences to *me*, based entirely on *my* confidence in *his* attitudes and preparations.

*I* was seen even *before* the appointment time, due partially to *my* decision to arrive about one hour early. Dr. Mehta was mostly prepared for this requested appointment, during which *he* explored the causes and significance of a referringphysician's slightly misleading prior diagnosis. In preparation for a colonoscopy, such a *valid* diagnostic history *could* have been a serious complication and *I* was very pleased that *he* had taken this step toward protecting *my* procedure from an unexpected outcome.
