Dr. Mehra was our son's Dr. for 4 years and allowed him to suffer mercilessly when a simple test (she never ordered) could have solved the problem. My son developed high anxiety, and we watched his high school career and life go to pieces because of her utter lack of care. After he turned 18 we took him to an adult GI specialist who ordered a SIBO test - which came back very positive and he was given a 2 week dose of anti-biotics and now he is doing great! There is NO excuse for a pediatric GI specialist to see a patient for 4 years and NOT have thought to order a test that another Dr. figured out in 2 visits! Dr. Mehra tried to blame EVERYTHING else for his condition - from not eating enough fruit, to having to wake early for his high school band practices, to his anxiety - which was caused by his unending condition! (instead of looking for a REAL medical reason for the problem). If your child needs a pediatric GI specialist - I'd avoid Dr. Mini Mehra like the plague.

When we asked questions about our daughters health plan and medicine she was very defensive and snarky. We were shocked by how unprofessional she was.

Dr. Mehra is an excellent doctor. Very very knowledgable and kind. Super bedside manner and perfect in every way EXCEPT the office staff, at her Torrance office, is disorganized and not too friendly. It is very hard to leave a message for the doctor. When you are lucky enough to sleak to her, you will feel so much better. But my son, 18, has left multiple messages for her and hears nothing back. I am wondering if she has no control over who the group hires because the office staff does NOT help.

The doctor is very good but the front office is rude, inconsiderate, mean, unfriendly, and overall made my appointment visit horrible. ever time I call or rerecords or information, they're very rude and unhelpful and make me feel bad. I like the doctor but I will I definitely not be returning solely because of the rude front staff. Everything is disorganized, they never pick up the phone,and they re some of the worst health care support staff I have ever encountered. Do not go to this office.
