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.

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.

I am a SEPTIC SHOCK SURVIVOR. I will FOREVER be grateful for Dr. Mehta. She help save my life. I had emergency surgery in May 2015 and Dr. Mehta was part of my surgery team. I was so impressed with the level of care I received, Dr. Mehta is now my primary Doctor.

Dr. Mehta is persistent and relentless in finding what is causing my breathing difficulties. I have never felt rushed, never felt "not heard" and always feel a direct participant in my treatments. She has referred me out to National Jewish in Denver, a nationally leading pulmonary research hospital to get to the bottom of my lung difficulties. She is just fantastic!!!
