Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

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.
