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.

Review for Dr. Langlois

I’m not sure how this doctor got a negative review. He is one of the kindest and most thorough surgeons I’ve come across. He took his time explaining everything to me and made sure I understood everything. Best surgeon. So glad I found him.
