in Middle island, ny |
She is by far one of the best doctors I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. She is honest, trustworthy, knowledgable, and has a great bedside manner. Anyone considering having weight loss surgery should not hesitate to use her. I'm so glad I found her. I had sleeve on 12/2/15 and have had amazing results. I have referred numerous people to her. Dr. Mehta and all of her staff are the best. She gave me my life back and for that I will forever be grateful.
