Dr is great , but I really can’t continue to wait 2-3 hours to be seen . It’s always a 2 hour wait and I always come back telling myself it’s an isolated event but it’s too really to time consuming

I cannot say enough good things about this doctor and the office. Every one is so nice, they make you feel so comfortable. I was a little hesitant because I had another doctor and was switching but if you are reading this review and have doubts, doubt no more... This is the place to go. I would never visit any other gastroenterologist other than Mr. Mehta. He takes the time to go over your concerns and genuinely cares about his patients. The entire staff is very attentive. Fantastic experience.
