Excellent in all respects.
From the first consultation, Dr Mehta listened to my problems and took a very considered and thoughtful approach to helping me find a diagnosis. He was very clear in all of his explanations and processes.
My consultation was by telephone so the first time I met Dr Mehta was on the day of the procedure. He made me feel very at ease.
Very good - provided clear explanation of issues and plan of action on how to address - down to earth, understood impact my condition is having on my daily life - left me feeling reassured that my condition can be improved.
Dr Mehta looked after my for about 12 years to manage my Crohn's Disease and parental nutrition. I always felt extremely well looked after. He would take the time to fully explain any treatment options and answer as many questions as I had. He's a fantastic consultant and I was very sorry to see him leave UClH.
I have been under the care of Dr Mehta for a number of years. Throughout this period he has been very caring and professional. He has explained all aspects of my care very well. I have nothing but praise for him and his team.
Dr Mehta supported me through a difficult time and helped problem solve my gastrointestinal issues. He was patient in his approach and maintained contact with me throughout the process, whilst ensuring I received the medical attention I needed. He is a doctor that cares for his patients and their well-being and he didn’t give up on my case. Thank you Dr Mehta!
Dr Mehta is a well mannered, compassionate and knowledgeable Dr. He listened to my concerns about my husband and explained in detail his opinion on why my husband has been unable to get the help he needs elsewhere. My husband's condition's are very complex, Dr Mehta acknowledged this and has recommended the very few other specialists who will hopefully be able to help. He also recommended some treatments that could help with my husband's pain and persistent vomiting. Highly recommend Dr Mehta.
Dr Mehta is a wonderful, kind and thorough practitioner. I’m thrilled to be under his care and recommend him highly.
It has been a pleasure to have Dr. Mehta sort out my problems. He is very knowledgeable, listened and understood my problems, and gave me a plan to sort out those problems. I can't thank him enough for all that he is doing for me.
