Expect a wait. The staff are nice but not welcoming. Today I sat for 25 minutes before going to window to see about making copayment. It was obvious that my arrival had been overlooked as the sticky slip I checked in on had not been removed and 5 minutes later I was asked for copay. If you are more fortunate to have a wider selection of doctors to choose from you may consider going elsewhere. I prefer the nurse practitioner to dr mehta. She is very thorough and thoughtful. She gets 5 stars.

I love this Dr. and his staff. They are so caring and loving. Dr. Mehta listens to everything you say and is truly concerned with the problems you are having. I have told many of my friends that are having pain problems to go to see him he works wonders. I hope they did because they will truly not be sorry. It feels so good to be pain free and not because of pain pills. Its wonderful.

First off..just went through 3 lumbar injections...2 from another Dr through a hospital, ($$$) and one as it Dr Mehta,($) . While the first 2 injections. A. Cost a lot more, because of the hospital, sedative, etc., The 2 injections did absolutely did nothing for my pain, with Dr. Mehtas' one shot in his office I still have hardly no pain. And the injection was a month ago. The difference between night and day!!

Even though I told the staff I can't have injections due to extensive scar tissue, they emphasize injection procedures. I got the impression that if I didn't have (unnecessary) injections done, I wouldn't be treated at all. I later discovered that had they reviewed MRI films, the staff would've seen injections wouldn't have helped due to existing hardware issues. If anyone goes to Global, get a 2nd opinion before agreeing to injections that might not be necessary! I won't go there again.

I have seen many. Many, many doctors throughout my life. Dr. Mehta by far is the most honest, professional, caring and knowledgeable doctor i have been to. Too bad he cannot be my doctor for all my other needs. Keep up the great work!!!!!!!

After seeing a neurosurgeon I was sent to Dr. Mehta for pain mgmt until I had tried everything possible prior to having back surgery. I was given an epidural without anything for pain & sent home in more pain than when I arrived. I shared this experience with my neurosurgeon & was assisted in getting in to see another Dr. immediately that was surprised I was functioning with the level of pain. I eventually had L3, 4, 5 anterior/posterior & stenosis surgery.
