Great experience, great weight loss. Went back to this office after shopping around because the doc remembered me and I received very personalized service. Office was very busy but I wasn't treated like just a number. Now I can see why this Dr and his staff have such a great reputation.
I chose Dr Mehta to do my weight loss surgery in 2013 because of his extensive experience and great reputation. I've lost over 100lbs and couldn't be happier. I feel great, look great and wonder why I waited so long to do this. Dr Mehta was compassionate, personable and had great bedside manor. The office staff was great to work with and they make me feel like I'm part of the family. Before I had surgery the nurse practitioner made sure I understood how to eat properly--and this was a feat considering I was eating fast foods most days of the week. Now I actually crave vegetables! I would highly recommend Dr Mehta to anyone that wants to lose weight!
He is only concerned about money. He recommended phentermine and does not even warn you about the side effects!!!!!! This phentermine is banned all over Europe but not here in the U.S. He doesn't accept insurance. But if you give your insurance card he will also bill the insurance company. So he charges patient full amount + full amount to insurance company. He charged me more than what he was supposed to charge me. He spent 5 minutes exactly and made $400. Not bad for a doctor who grew up in 1 bedroom in India...After taking phentermine my eye sight caught messed up. Bottom line: He is in it only for MONEY and has no genuine interest / care for any patients. He is bad! Very very bad! Don't ever go to him. THere are other compassionate doctors out there.
