My 95 year old father in law was having issues with oxygen saturation levels. He is a current patient. It took us 23 days to get an appointment. This is far too long. We like Dr. Mehta and the staff, but we have experienced this type of delay with literally all the docs at PIH. You simply cannot get timely appointments. For example, he was in the hospital for a UTI for 10 days in Nov. The discharge orders told hm to see a Urologist in 1 to 2 weeks. First, it took us more than 2 weeks to even get in to see the Primary doc to make the referral. Then it was 5 days before the referral went through the system. Then it was 3 more weeks to get an appointment with the Urologist. In the meantime, he got another UTI. The delays are ridiculous.

I'm very happy with all the services and establishment and the doctors and staff, but I don't like to have to pass to pay for parking.

I got the impression the provider seems to be in hurry to get me out the office I try to explain my health issues in a very courteous way provider won't let me finish explaining provider only want to refer to my records I didn't agree with provider treatment plan, I needed help in a more expedient way as my illness is causing me health problems like tremendous headaches, aggravate high blood pressure not able to function during the day I was told by the staff they were an specialty office, may be that was the way to explain their time is limited with all do respect to the provider I feel bad asking for another doctor but I have no choice

Hi, Dr. Mehta is always very caring and she's very smart. She explains things well, and I just love her. She's a very generally kind person.

what I didn't like about the provider is that I couldn't understand her or hear what she was saying. I have said no news is considered as good news. the DR could have told me it was negative by sending me a letter to my house instead I had to go and not be able to understand her or even hear her. well that was a waste of my time and co payment

Very helpful!

Yes, improvement needs to be made on the length of time between appointments. For instance, I saw Dr. Mehta, and she said that I needed to do a breathing test before she could move forward with a certain medication she had in mind. So low and behold the appointment for the breathing test is out two months. How's that work? I would think 2 weeks would be a more appropriate or 2 days would be better. So that's my comment about everything these days is that our appointments are not coming swiftly. That's it.

Just overall didn't enjoy I was supposed to go to a sleep specialist but she only specialized in sleep apena I had another sleep disorder she didn't know about it

I would like this doctor and other doctors to print out what the major things they had said. Being an older person wearing hearing aids, I don't always hear everything but I would love it if they could just print it out as we're leaving and get it as we leave. Thank you.

It took a month to schedule the appointment. Or, actually, appointment was scheduled a month out, which I feel is too long. And then once I arrived at the appointment, she reviewed my medical history and then scheduled another appointment to have a further tests done. Which I feel should have been done at the first appointment. Had she reviewed my medical charts, prior to me coming in, after a month later. And now I've gotta wait another few weeks for the next appointment for the tests.
