My PRP on left wrist was successful not experiencing any pain afterward. My mobilization has improved after my three week follow up. As always my treatments here are always successful with happy results. I am very thankful for such a caring and knowledgeable doctor to always help me to improve whatever issues I have.

I have struggled with sciatic nerve pain after hip replacement surgery. Dr. Mehta and his staff have been very patient and supportive. The necessary protocols have been very frustrating, but they were very patient with me and explained why each time. Although I am still struggling with the pain, it has eased over time. I don't know what my ultimate treatment will be, surgery or something else, but I am trying to get through without surgery. Dr. Mehta has been very helpful.

I saw Dr. Metha for a back problem. I was referred to him by Pain Manager doctor for injections. Had to wait 6 weeks for the appointment for injection with sedation and as it turned out, Dr. Metha injected the wrong area in my back! I have lost ALL confidence in him!!!

I have been seeing Dr. Mehta for several months now I feel helpless without insurance. I have tried other doctors that spent 2 min & sent me on. Dr Mehta has never made me feel like a drug abuser like some have! I am comfortable being honest about what works for me and what won’t. I am truly there because I hurt so badly. I don’t want to ever have to find another dr!! the injections i got with him the one time I could, are amazing. I feel like I can be honest about my pain.he gets it.Great Doc!

Dr Mehta was been treating my wife for a torn ligament in her shoulder. She has a high pain tolerance, but this began hurting so bad that she would start crying in the midddle of lunch or anytime it flaired up. Within 3 days of seeing Dr Mehta, who squeezed us in due to her pain, and severe need, she was feeling almost 100% better. Its now been a month and she is still doing great. In addition, he takes the time to expain to you what is going on and how he is treating it. Very professional!

I've had 5 shots and the 5th one came from Dr. Metha. It was the first shot to actually be effective. He's amazing in what he does. I'd highly recommend him to anyone whose had on going pain like myself. Although it's a 1 hr drive to get to his office, it's worth it for me to be with a dr (and staff) who I know I can trust. Dr. Metha and his staff are very personable. They spent the time getting to the root of the problem. And, that's why I believe my shot was successful.

Dr. Mehta and his staff are very professional and caring! I am a runner and a dancer and would hate to stop either from pain/injuries. Dr. Mehta listened to my concerns and was able to address my pain without me needing surgery. I had some shoulder pain and a compressed nerve that he was able to alleviate with injections and therapy. I couldn't even feel the shots. I hate taking medications and he was able to help me without meds. He is a great doc and I would highly recommend him to anyone!

I had a bad wrist and hand pain, the doctor gave me an injection and took my pain away. It's been better ever since. I work as a welder and helped me get back to my job. Thanks.

Dr Mehta and his staff are fantastic. From the moment you walk in their goal is to take care of you and make sure that your recovery is their focus. I had an injection done here and the way I was cared for was top of the line. Everything was explained to me and any questions I had or concerns were answered to my full satisfaction. I am a very impatient person when it comes to getting well, but Dr Mehta explained to me the severity of my injury and the care I needed to make a full recovery. Somet
