You have not gotten back to me about a medication for pain or diarrhea. You say you're open everyday from 9-5 with lunch closed from 12-1. This is completely untrue. The office on James Casey is NOT open on Wednesday and that should be known to your patients. There were 2 people and me waiting to leave fecal samples. I knocked on the door several times and they finally opened the door and said they were closed. No results on poop because the lab froze it. Front office said there wasn't enough.

Dr Mehta staff are the most horrific in terms of attitude that I have ever seen in my life. They lie make you feel unwanted and are definitey ungreatful. I would never ever recommend this office. As far as the doctor goes he is way too busy has too many patients and was unfamiliar with my condition. He actually misstated how many patients he had seen with my rare disease. He is average for all other upper GI knowledge.

Dr. Meta does not listen to his clients. He makes a decision and then acts upon it without listening. He takes too many appointments a day so he is always in a rush. My issues are with my stomach and there is a specific place the pain was coming from.... but he never even touched me. He told me the pain could not be coming from my stomach yet that is where it was coming from.... dont go to this man unless you have no other choice.
Austin, TX |
The office smells horrifically like smoke and you are repeatedly forced wait 45 minutes to an hour due to the overbooking of patients. All appointments are booked 15 minutes apart and the doctor does not review the chart.

By possibly one of the worse experiences, I've ever had with a doctor. I have a mass on my liver and we can't biopsy it and from the test he can't tell for 100% whether it's cancerous or not. He isn't sure. Instead of doing something about it he said due to size and my age, it's a waste of time. Cancer runs in my family like brown eyes. I told him I wasn't comfortable with that response and unless he could do a test to find out 100% it wasn't cancerous I wanted it removed. He refused.
