Dr. Laughlin is a very caring, concerned, patient friendly, knowledgeable doctor. I could not recommend any doctor more highly.

Dr Mehta has been my Pulmonologist for years. She is kind, compassionate & caring. I just found out she’ll be leaving the practice & I’m heartbroken.

I once held him in high regard. However I told him I suspected after having chest pain and multitude of symptoms that I had Covid. Insisted I must have ACID REFLUX. Even yelled at me that I was being narrow minded. I have GERD but it has been under control for years. This chest pain was all the way on my right. Acid reflux would not explain the myriad of heart (tachycardia), lung and neurological symptoms (loss of smell, tingling, short term memory loss, etc) I was experiencing. Turns out I had pneumonia with ground glass opacities (characteristic of Covid) he told me the MRI must be wrong. (?!) Went to Cedars Sinai, they said yes. You had it or you had something exactly like it that we’ve never heard of. (Sarcastically. Because the chances of that are ridiculously remote) I feel miles better now, but am still suffering complications. For the love of God, see someone else.

Best lung doctor in Kern county! He’s treated me for valley fever and several pneumonia’s over the past few years! No long waiting times to see him! Office staff is very professional and knowledgeable! It’s nice to visit a doctors office where the staff are jovial !

Dr. Mehta is truly an angel on earth. She is the most compassionate doctor you will ever meet and everyone in their office are the most caring folks you could ever hope for. My asthma is so severe I’ve been hospitalized several times. Dr. Mehta has worked with me for several years and has worked so hard to get it under control. She has had me work with folks at USC medical and the Scripps medical facilities to figure out my asthma. After many trials of different treatments she has finally created the best prescription plan utilizing several medications and I am now feeling great. If you have any respiratory issues please contact Dr. Mehta or any of the doctors in her office. They are wonderful.

I would never refer this doctor to take care of any patient. We had a daughter that was seen and rudely and carelessly taken care of. It was so bad we told the nurses and doctors to make sure he never came in to her room again, let alone give her, what we considered, the worst medical care I have ever seen.,our daughter died at age 42 after years of brave fighting, beginning at 4 1/2 being diagnosed with an incurable, at the time, cancer. She would go from an absolute genius to a mentally challenged child due to such high doses of radiation needed. She would go on in life doing amazing things and always volunteering to help mentally and physically challenged children and adults. So it is not like she had not been seen by hundreds of physicians, nurses and other health care professionals. During years of medical care we would come across someone that we did not care for, although only a few over decades of health care. Dr. Laughlin was hands down the worst healthcare provider EVER!

Dr. Laughlin was performing a lung biopsy on my grandfather. Due to "being overzealous" (his words, not mine), he punctured the lung. My grandfather is currently fighting for his life. Has been hospitalized for a week, with family there around the clock. Dr. Laughlin has not been in at all to speak face to face with us. Not impressed at all.

I spoke to this so called doctor yesterday in the ER. He was extremely arrogant! I asked a question in regards to the health of a love one. He reply was "What does that have to do with anything". Do not waste your time trying to talk to this doctor. He is HORRIBLE!!!

I found him to be very arrogant & unwilling to listen to me. He said I never had asthma even though I was diag. by UCLA & was in & out of the hospital repeatedly due to it. He prescribed meds that had a caution about using if there were kidney issues. I told him beforehand I couldn’t take anything that would harm my kidney. I pd my copay before I saw the caution. He was examining my throat & I told him I was feeling sick. He told me it was “acid reflux”! 2 hours I had a temp of 102. ???? Awful!

Dr. Mehta ran me through several tests to determine my diagnosis, then prescribed new medication to help with my diseases. She was also able to get a new C-pap machine for me although my old one was not the required 5 years old before replacement. She is very personable and takes her time with me as an older person. Very good staff as well.

First visit 1/2/18 I felt very comfortable when I walked in. The office staff was very friendly, the technician was by far, the best. He helped me a lot. Then I met Dr. Laughlin.. A breath of fresh air to find a physician who truly cares about his patients. There were 3 patients in the waiting room and they couldn't have enough to say about his virtues. I'm happy my physician referred me to him.
