First time ever leaving a review for a doctor but I just couldn't help myself! Dr. Mehta is WONDERFUL. I've seen her a handful of times and each time I left feeling happy and heard. Not only has she helped my GI issues, but her personality is the best. She really listens to you and makes you feel like she cares about you as a person. Can't recommend her enough!

Dr. Preeti Mehta is very nice, knowledgeable and energetic. Facilities are amazing. However this office is completely disorganized. Doctor was late or absent on multiple appointments/ procedures while the assistant told me she was here. I called the office for bills issues or prescriptions. They don’t follow up on anything. Doctors didn’t call me back either. Many procedures are scheduled one after another. The worse is that as multiple people said, they will tell you that your insurance pre-approved a procedure and that will be all covered for but later on you receive bills for them. Horrible to say as the doctor is amazing and everyone is so nice there, but I can’t help to feel like this team is more about making money rather than treating you now. I received calls to schedule another procedure while they ignore all my the bills concerns and symptoms. They just want more. No diagnosis yet and the surprise bills keep coming. I’m “only” at $1300 so far compared to others

Very unprofessional for many reasons. I called three times since my blood was taken, and finally yesterday, 4/3/19, the front office desk sent me my lab results with no explanation of anything on the report, with the report dated completed on 3/28/19. There was something abnormal in my blood results, and Dr. Mehta is not returning my phone calls to explain these results to me. The front office staff lied to me several times, stating the blood results weren't in, when they were. Look elsewhere.

Dr is lovely and charming. However beware. She does unecessary procedures. Last visit I told her I had chest pains. She said “it’s definitely not your heart,” without even listening to my breathing. She then performed an endoscopy. 2 days later I was rushed to the hospital and needed heart surgery. The doctors told me when she put me under general anesthesia without checking my heart first, she put me in grave danger.

Dr Preeti Mehta is excellent. Caring, compassionate, thorough, knowledgeable. I am so thrilled to have found her, and am now a patient of hers and highly recommend her. I am a PACU RN, working out of a LI hospital. I searched for a competent female gastroenterologist and found exactly what I was looking for in Dr.Mehta. She took her time with me, answered all my questions and concerns. The outpatient facility in New Hyde Park is spotless, state of the art equipment, and well run.

Wow I have never had a doctor like Dr. Mehta. Holy Moley this woman is the best. She is so caring, takes her time to explain things and goes beyond what any other doctor would do. Most of my doctors can’t even see me. These days you have to settle for a P.A. And you’re lucky if ur dr. even calls you back. Dr. Mehta really cares about her patients. She helped me so much. I had severe stomach pain and it’s now gone. Boy does this world need more doctors like her. Blessed to have been in her care.

Dr. Mehta is warm and friendly and puts you at ease. The problem is I trusted her, and she made a grave error in judgment. Please be aware she orders way too many endoscopies!! She put me in danger by doing an endoscopy with anesthesia when I came in with chest pains. Turns out two days later, my internist called an ambulance. I ended up needing a stent to remove heart blockage. She put me in grave danger when she gave me anesthesia without checking my heart first! Thank goodness I'm OK!

I absolutely LOVE Dr. Mehta. She is by far one of the best physicians I have ever crossed paths with. I am so grateful to her for taking such great care of my son who was very sick with severe stomach issues. Dr. Mehta has gone far & beyond to what most doctors in today’s world do. She is kind, caring, professional, patient and a superb Gastrointerologist. Her staff (and I mean every single person) is incredible also. Truly grateful to everyone @ Digestive Disease Care and NHP Endoscopy. Thank U

Amazing Physician !! Caring and spends a lot of time. Great bedside manners. I felt like she was able to connect with me at my level. I felt very comfortable talking to her. I am glad there are still physicians who like to talk to the patient !! I have seen plenty of physicians who are too busy just busy typing away at the computer and treat a patient like a number. Great thing also about this doctor she is available on weekends as well has late hours.

Terrible didn’t even follow back on me. I felt like I wasn’t being treated at all. Tested me but everything came normal , I wish they would have called me back to schedule an appointment but going there means waiting several hours.

Amazing! Dr. Mehta takes ample time to explain why procedures are being done. I had both a colonoscopy and endoscopy and both procedures went well without side effects from anesthesia. She has a wonderful bedside manner and is always so jolly! I would recommend her to friends and family. Office staff is always courteous as well.
