My exam was very short and not very detailed for a complete body check from a dermatologist. I was in with the Doctor a very short time and left feeling that I did not get a complete exam.

Dr. Mehta and the staff at Bridgeport always do an excellent job.

Dr Mehta did not tell me anything about ointment she prescribed. It is a strong drug and needs to be used with great care and only for a certain amt of time.

I waited quite some time to get an appointment with this care provider. She was excellent and definitely worth waiting for!

overall great care. it just took s long time to get an initial appointment (3+ month wait), but she said I shouldn't have as hard of time now that I have been seen. if it was for an urgent matter I would have looked else where for sn immediate appointment. the doctor was super informative and very helpful - would go back for any other needs.

Providers seem rushed, spend a lot of time typing instead of looking at you eye to eye as you talk. No baseline photos established with dermatology to assess changes in 2 years. Skin check very rapid, not sure very thorough. No education given in terms of ABC's of skin cancer. In other words, no education on prevention other than wear sunscreen. Sort of felt like it's a rush, rush system. Get em in, Get em out. As a healthcare provider, I don't practice that way and don't like being treated that way. Have been treated that way now in (2) different instances. If a patient has HBP and is struggling with weight loss, where should the education come from? The provider has a responsibility to assist the patient with achieving health. Providing resources and a healthcare plan that will assist the patient achieve desired outcomes and then following up to evaluate patient progress toward desired outcomes.

It was over very quickly. I had wanted to ask a few questions that I forgot because I was in and out so quickly.

all providers are very professional

07/26/2016
I think proper care was postponed too long. Referral should have come at least 3 months before it did, It took too long (1 month) to get into the referred physician [...]

They office lost me in their system last and did not send a reminder for my dermatological check-up. This is not good since I have had pre-cancerous spots removed from my face during past check-ups.

06/15/2016
The provider is always very fast during my skin checks after skin cancer, so I am not sure if she is thorough enough while examining my skin.

Visit was good. I was leaving on vacation and the got me in right away

03/22/2016
Dr. Mehta only spent 5 minutes with me, barely addressed the reason I was there, gave me very little followup information for care. She does not show much human interest...completely clinical. Her nurse spent more time with me than the doctor did.

03/22/2016
the bed side manor of this DR. was POOR at best. she was very hurried and bothered that I was even there.
50

03/22/2016
I thought Dr. Mehta didn't provide me with enough information about my condition. I wasn't searching for a prescription. I wanted lifestyle, diet, OTC recommendations, and I got very little from her. I have been to a dermatologist elsewhere who took the time to talk to me about the condition and specific recommendations that may help. Dr. Mehta was poor by comparison.

She was new to us. Did an okay job but probably will not return. Didn't want to take the time to wait on the person we really wanted to see.

02/24/2016
This was the first time any doctor sent me a follow-up "thank You" card for selecting her as my dermatologist. Very unusual, and an indication of her willingness to be of help to my needs.

excellent all the way around, from referral to appt. to visit...

This provider always is quick but concise and professional when doing routine skin checks and is also quick to freeze or remove spots that are of concern.

It was only a skin check, but the earliest appointment was 10 weeks out.

Have Never been disappointed by ANY of my Care Providers

12/21/2015
My total wait time in the exam room was almost 20 minutes. Dr Mehta was, as always, in a hurry and did a very fast exam of my skin that took only a few minutes or less. I believe this time is not sufficient for a full skin check.

She is attentive to my skin concerns
