Search no more - Dr. Mehta is the one. He made me feel comfortable throughout the entire process. He respected me as an individual and it made all the difference. He took the time to explain each step of the process and answered all of my questions with patience. I cannot sing his praises enough. I would not hesitate to return to him for anything. I suffered for my entire life with what I thought were "allergies"... to everything. Turns out I had approx. 80% blockage due to enlarged turbinates & a deviated septum. He changed my life. He can change yours too.

I have to say that I was at first very uncertain about having this surgery. I had the good fortune of being referred to Dr. Mehta ENT. I was sold on him from day one. He was very clear on the things I could expect, and what we would hope to achieve in the surgery to remove a Parathyroid gland. It's a week later past surgery and I am feeling great. The incision was minimal and I am feeling fine. He and his staff were very warm and welcoming. I would recommend this practice to any and all who might be in need of their expertise. I give them the a super five stars!!!

Dr. Mehta is a caring, thoughtful, highly intelligent practitioner and surgeon that I've referred quite a few people to in the last two years. He's treating my 8 year old for severe environmental allergies and performed a parathyroidectomy on me a few months ago. He does an excellent job of explaining medical conditions and procedures in a way that's understandable. His bedside manner is also fantastic.

Dr. Rajeev H. Mehta is an excellent doctor and a gifted surgeon. He is attentive, honest and straightforward. His professionalism is unparalleled, and he leads the field in the treatment of head and neck cancer. I’ve been seeing Dr. Mehta for about a year and a half, ever since he diagnosed me with cancer in my neck and at the base of my tongue. He has always been very caring, compassionate and professional, and he has always taken the time to answer any questions I might have. I owe my life to Dr. Mehta - there is no better endorsement than that.

Dr. Mehta has excellent bedside manner and is, by far, the most knowledgeable ENT I’ve ever dealt with. He removed only half of my thyroid after assuring me my tumor was benign. He was correct, based on his experience with this type of tumor, he just knew it wasn’t cancer. I trusted him and he was right. Surgery went well, follow up went well, and he was patient, warm, and kind from start to finish. I cannot recommend his office enough. Staff is friendly and caring. Dr. Mehta is AMAZING.

I totally agree, with what others wrote. about his kindness and outstanding bedside manner, but that is not what impressed me the most. What impressed me most were his brains and his skillfulness. I have so much confidence in this doctor, that I am writing his review "before" I have the surgery.
