Dr. Mehta was kind, thorough and very helpful. He carefully laid out next steps for my treatment and was happy to answer all of my questions.
He's an excellent doctor who listens patiently and empathizes well. He also fit me in on very short notice, which I greatly appreciated!
Very helpful. I have recommended him to a close friend and they found him very helpful as well.
Professional, extremely friendly, did not rush me at all and took the time to answer all questions with detail. Would pause to explain things and confirm if medical terms had been explained to me in the past. Great doctor!
Dr. Mehta was very good. He gave me a detailed exam and carefully explained how to care for my injury.
Dr. Mehta is the best. He was thorough.. took his time to answer all my questions at late evening hours. I also needed injection. Dr. Mehta did an amazing job! Right away, my symptoms improved. I walked out of his office feeling better, minimal pain! He is the best physiatrist. Go to him!
Always answers all my questions, does a thorough examination. Highly recommend.
Dr. Mehta did a thorough exam, asked a lot of questions and listened to my symptom complaints. I have confidence he will treat my condition to the best of his ability.
Dr. Mehta was extremely professional and approachable. He was happy to spend time explaining to me where my pain was coming from and answering any questions I had.
Dr. Mehta is very patient and takes the time to listen to my questions and explain everything to me. I've seen him on-and-off for 2 years when my bulging/herniated disc injury flares up. I would definitely recommend him.
Dr. Mehta was excellent. I was very impressed with his expertise and comfortable with his demeanor.
Dr Mehta was great! Everyone is his office was SO friendly and attentive. Dr. Mehta was kind and wasn't in a rush to diagnose me and get on to the next patient, as I feel many doctors are. He listened to me carefully and made a comprehensive action plan for next steps. Everyone should go to him!
Very good experience. Dr. Mehta was very professional and easy to talk to. He knew exactly what my issue was and helped me work through it.
He was very kind and attentive and listened to everything I had to say. I had a pretty sketchy experience with a chiropractor and he made me feel at ease with his knowledge and experience. Definitely recommend seeing a real MD and I 100% recommend him! He has a really excellent staff too.
Worst experience ever. His staff forgot I was there. He was rude, condescending, and had no idea how to treat my condition although I was told by his staff he specialized in it. When I finally met him, he said he guessed his staff lied. I told him that I didn't want the appointment and could he refer me elsewhere. He said he wouldn't take the time to help me because he wanted to get an early start out to The Hamptons instead!
Great bedside manner, very informative. Definitely go see him!
He is extremely kind and very patient. My whole family goes to him!
From start to finish a great visit. The office staff was friendly and efficient and there was literally no wait time. Dr. Mehta is friendly and well-informed. I left the office with full confidence in his abilities. he laid over several treatment options for me and communicated each one quite well. I am also a health care provider(chiropractor) so am sensitive to how other doctors run their practices and treat patients. Dr Mehta meets all the criteria of great, caring physician.
I've had a lower back problem from 2 herniated discs for 10 years. Dr Mehta was able to resolve this issue with an RFA which has given me constant and permanent relief. His entire office is able to walk me through everything and I never felt pressured to do anything. I would highly recommend him to anyone who has lower back or in general pain.
Great experience, no complaints whatsoever.
kind and experienced. Hopefully my issue is resolved with physical therapy
This doctor is awesome he answered all my questions. And took his time with me. Thank you Dr. Mehta
- None of the treatments for pain worked. I understand that pain is hard, so I can't fault, but this office seemed to be procedure happy - Make sure this is actually in network. I had Blue Cross Blue Shield and this place accepts it, but you'll constantly have to forward checks to their office or they'll call you on the phone. This is the most annoying part about going to this office.
