I had a very positive experience from everyone at this office
June 10, 2022
The provider, the ... the ... the Dr, they could have told me they needed X-rays, and stuff, instead of making me come way out there to tell me that's what I need first. They didn't do that. They made me get there, and all she did was talk a few seconds, and she was done, and then they want to give me appointment way ... July 18th, again. No, my father needs to be looked at now. So, no more. I'm not satisfied with it. Thank you.

Dr. Mehta is a very kind person. She seems to care about a person's personal life and any stress in one's life.

Dr. Mehta Is a very caring doctor!

My problem is I am heard of hearing and now with mask mandate if person/doctor you are treated by has an accent it makes it heard to understand and have an effective visit. You walk out feeling you missed something or did not understand the information given to you.

Well pleased.

Paying for parking is absolutely ridiculous. I'm disgusted at how greedy PIH has become. Not only is it ridiculous to charge people to park at a doctor's office but then we have to wait in a long line to use the kiosk and then wait in another long line to get out of the parking lot because something is always going wrong with the process and the equipment. It's shameful the time it takes to simply leave your appointment! PIH should be ashamed. Also, trying to schedule an appointment with a specialist is absolutely awful. It's always at least a 3 month wait and with the endocrinologist, it's a 6 month wait! Someone needs to get busy hiring more doctors so patients can be treated in a timely manner.
April 21, 2022
They where very respectful, caring, and attentive, listen to my concern. The CNA that walk me was perfessonal and sweet. Was very satisfied with my first visit to the office.
April 18, 2022
The experience was pretty good. However, when was the interaction feedback with the new prescribe medication, with a previous medication. It was no immediate response. I had to do it numerous call back to clarify and resolve the situation. I would appreciate it and not doing somebody called comma conversations to fix the issue.
April 07, 2022
I really like Dr. Mehta. She cares & is so knowledgeable. My asthma & sleep apnea difficulties have improved since being under her care. Great doctor!

Very courteous and informative
March 31, 2022
Yes, my appointment was at 8:30 on my cellphone. Got a message at 8:40. I was there 10 minutes early and the door was locked. Maybe we can unlock the door prior to everybody's appointment concern. Again, the door was locked.
March 31, 2022
Dr. Mehta was excellent. She listened, she requested off for everything I needed and she's great. I appreciate her very much.
March 24, 2022
The staff & Dr were very welcoming & attentive ??
March 11, 2022
Well, it really was not Dr. Mehta fault, but the the radiologist had not read the results from the from the test that I took on the 1st of March, and here it was 10 days later, and I was anxious to know. She was able to relate the the technicians information, but it would have been nice to have a more full complete report. Anyway, I like her very much. She is very, very kind woman, and I would definitely go back to her. Thank you.

Front office was awesome!!

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.

This is the first time seeing her, and she is a very Pleasant and Good Pulmunologist. And explain things easy to understand.
December 23, 2021
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
December 17, 2021
Doctor explained everything in layman's terms
December 14, 2021
My appointment went very well. And a follow up with the medical assistant, she did everything possible to reach me in a timely manner. And helped me and I do appreciate it.
December 06, 2021
Dr. Mehta and staff were all very professional and caring
November 18, 2021
Couldn't schedule an appointment because the scheduling calendar doesn't go into next year.
November 15, 2021
Impressive w/Dr. Mehta, soft spoken, knowledgeable,methodical and personable. I'm very happy and please that she is my Dr. I have Confidence, Faith in her decision, and intervention in my Care. As a Nurse, which she was unaware, I was impressed w/ her Professional & manners as well as her staff. Kudos to Dr. Mehta and Staff....Ty ??????
November 02, 2021
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.
November 01, 2021
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
October 28, 2021
Everything was very good, thank you.
October 26, 2021
Good experience.
October 25, 2021
Very helpful!
October 21, 2021
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.
October 21, 2021
I had coughed for twenty some year,I had went to see many doctors,they can't stop my cough, Doctor Mehta save my life, my cough almost gone. She is awesome.
October 15, 2021
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
October 12, 2021
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.
October 08, 2021
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.
October 07, 2021
My Dr. is always polite and very courtesy and patient with me
