We Have been using Dr Mehta for: our daughters seizure condition, sons MS, and my Senior care. I would highly recommend him as he takes each patient as if it is his own family, and gives his best personal service!
in Redondo Beach |
He can take the most complicated issues and figure them out. He definitely thinks outside of the box and that is unique in itself. He has a very calm demeanor (and a good sense of humor :-) ) which makes it easy to discuss your medical issues. He is just a wealth of information and a great doctor as well as one of the nicest people you will ever meet!

Dr. Mehta is by far the best neurologist I have ever had and my favorite doctor. He has an incredible memory and is always up to date on the newest medications and treatments for all the different illnesses he treats. Dr. Mehta definitely takes the time to listen to you and and gather your history so he can make an accurate diagnosis and treatment. He's the first doctor to really listen to me and actually read my history and find a correlation w/my pain. His knowledge is amazing!
in San Pedro, CA |
I highly recommend Dr. Mehta. He takes the time and does only the testing required to do a proper evaluation of your needs. He listens well, and he asks questions when he feels he needs more information about your symptoms. He is cautious in his approach to medical needs, which is good for you and is much more likely to give a better long-term result than, for instance, a headlong rush into surgery. I have already recommended Dr. Mehta to other people I know who would benefit from his services.
in Torrance, CA |
I not only WOULD recommend Dr. Mehta but I HAVE. Personally, I found him to be the most comprehensive of any doctor I've ever seen, as he used our allotted time to cover valuable ground without wasting it on chit chat. My impression was that he actually lets his brain process all the jig saw pieces and formulate a plan instead of grabbing at one piece and prescribing something to deal with that. I think he's a fantastic doctor with an excellent memory for detail.
in Long beach, CA |
ABOLUTELY HORRIBLE, STAY FAR AWAY FROM THIS CROOK! The only thing this doctor could do was tell us about prescribing opiates to pregnant women, which we are strongly against. As we are leaving he states we must leave a deposit since he was unable to reach insurance. I asked him why did he not mention this before. I asked under what guidelines does he get this deposit figure. HE just assumed a price. Then he says he doesn't usually deal with people who have these problems.
