I've had neck pain for years. I could't sit or lay comfortably. It got so bad that I was missing a lot of work. I started seeing Dr. Mehta and have been having a series of treatments, including injections and physicaltherapy. At my last follow up, I felt better than I can remember in a long time. It's all thanks to Dr. Mehta!

Dr. Mehta and his team are top notch!! I have been dealing with chronic back pain for over 40 years and have been to more specialists and tried more treatments than I can count. At my first visit to Dr. Mehta,he knew exactly the cause of my pain and took the time to fully explain everything to me. I am still in the middle of treatment but feel confident that I'm in the best possible hands.
