He id an amazing surgeon and a great human being. We had a great experience.

Dr. Mejia is an extraordinary surgeon and compassionate human being. He performed my mother's Robotic Whipple Procedure last year for pancreatic cancer. He is unique in his ability to problem solve and in the warmth he brings to his patients. He will calm your nerves by just walking in the room, I promise. He has the most amazing nurses surrounding him and continually works with the best doctors/specialists to find solutions. Dr.Mejia is precise, gifted, and truly invested in his patients.

I recently (Jan 2017) received a liver transplant at Dallas Methodist and Dr.Mejia was my surgeon. I am not happy that he only has 12 reviews and isn't rated at 5 stars. The culture of The Liver Institute is confusing at first, however the compassion of the providers including Dr. Mejia is 100 stars. Immediately following my surgery I had to tell him to go home - he checked on me often. It's not been easy, but I made it and he and his staff are why I'm able to type this review today. -JHJ

We will not recommend Dr. Mejia. His lack of concern in 1) urgency in scheduling the initial surgery (took from discovery of cancer before Thanksgiving to surgery day in mid January). 2) post surgery it was not uncommon to take 3 weeks to get results from followup scans. Mejia's office constantly passed the blame to someone else rather than taking responsibility for the delays.
Patients feedback is appreciated.Dr. Mejia's office is proud to treat patients from North Texas and many distant areas.The coordination of care for patients with remote imaging and tests can add extra time as we prefer to review any outside information within our very qualified team of specialists.In this way, we can assure that the best decision and recommendation is made for each individual patient's condition.Dr. Mejia's office managers are always available at 214-947-4400 for any concerns.
