She was knowledgeable about my situation but I was disappointed that her only advice was to prescribe medication. She didn't discuss lifestyle changes or other alternatives.

After an office EKG, Dr. Mehta took great pains to research some of the results to make certain she was giving the proper advice. I really appreciated that. The Doctor also knows that I have a science background and enjoy medicine as an academic subject, and she took some extra time to "talk shop" with me.
