I would definitely NOT recommend this office. Very poorly run practice. Office staff is not helpful or knowledgeable. They mail out bills over 2 years after an office visit. If an office is not organized or competent enough to mail out a bill on time, I certainly would not trust them with my health care needs. Look elsewhere for a specialist!

Dr. Sheth did my umbilical hernia surgery, when I went home a few days later I removed my bind and found two burn marks on my stomach and when I returned to see him he denied it. Then, 10 months later, the mesh broke open and he refuses to admit something is wrong, and I'm in pain again.

Dr. Sheth removed my gallbladder with robot assistance. He did an excellent job. There was minimal discomfort and 2 weeks after, I can already tell the scar will probably not be noticeable. He is easy to talk to and his staff is very friendly and helpful. Dr. Sheth was recommended to me by a nurse and I will definitely recommend him to others.
