Dr. Mehta left the next day & she had me communicate with her about my vitals, reaction to 'new medicine, etc., by texting.

I admire Dr. Mehta and trust her 100%. I drive 2 hrs. one way to see her. I wouldn't do that if I didn't think she was the best to take care of my heart disease.

I saw a fellow first who had obviously read my past history and asked many questions. I felt very good that she knew all the information about me.. The provider was wonderful and took time to explain all I needed to know. She is an excellent doctor and I am so glad I switched to her. She ordered a test which I was able to schedule the same week and I had the results from her the next day. She and her staff were wonderful.
