Dr. Mehta and her team were wonderfully efficient. I went in for a routine check up. She knew my history and my concerns and was able to answer all my questions. I ended up getting a biopsy done (same day/same appt). She explained why and what she would do. Procedure was quick and painless. And she followed up promptly with results.

I always enjoy seeing Dr. Mehta. I took a business card of hers so that I could refer her to a caregiver that I work with.

The good part is that I arrived early and was able to see the doctor early though not requested. The bad is that the appt seemed rushed.

treated me well as a deaf patient. We communicated via writing notes as an interpreter didn't show up

Dr Mehta was great. Needing medical attention isn't a joy in life but having one as herself tend to your needs with obvious skills/knowledge of her practice while expressing pleasantness certainly eases the downfalls of such.

I like that Dr. Mehta isn't judgmental about embarrassing problems related to hyperhidrosis. I trust her completely and I think she does an awesome job. On my most recent visit, I asked her for a prior authorization for axillary botox and she had no problem helping me out, answering my questions, and getting the paperwork together.

05/31/2017
I've been seeing a dermatologist for over 15 years. Each time, my provider thoroughly examined by body and had pictures to notice changes. This provider seemed put out. Didn't care that my previous provider wanted me checked every 6 months and didn't make note of any issues that might not to be followed up on a year later.

05/29/2017
I've seen her two times and I have felt both times that she is trying to get in and out of there as quickly as possible. I don't have a lot of moles so she moves quickly, which is fine, and I believe she is highly qualified, but I don't feel as though she is interested in knowing me, answering questions or making sure I feel heard or satisfied. Maybe she has to meet a certain minimum number of patients during the day and that is why. Whatever the reason, while I feel she is a good doctor, I don't feel she is a good listener.

05/27/2017
I have always found everyone at Providence very helpful and attentive.

It always seem they are in a hurry to move on.

05/22/2017
this doctor has very poor communication skills with her patients, her attitude leaves a lot to be desired in people skills, she may be a good doctor but I will not return to her for my follow up visit.

05/18/2017
she's very professional and I'm confident that I'm getting excellent care. I feel comfortable to talk with her

05/17/2017
she seemed in a hurry. Did not talk about specific needs handed a note book ushered me out.
80

05/15/2017
I don't think she spend enough time going thru the whole body exam for this supposedly to be an annual complete skin check up. Either she is short of time or didn't think it is necessary to do so.did not go over with me the medication I am on, maybe not in protocol for dermatologist.I have to request for female assistant to assist the biopsy, not very sensitive to patient needs.
100

05/13/2017
The doctor and her assistant were very friendly and exceptionally knowledgeable about my issues. They were able to address my pending concern quickly, but carefully. I really appreciate the respect and professionalism throughout the visit.

i had a biopsy for melanoma. i don't know the results more than two weeks later. the office removed the stitches yesterday. [...]

Dr. Mehta had previously done a skin biopsy on my nose, which came back as basal cell cancer and required MOHS surgery to remove. When her office called to inform me it was cancer, I would have thought she would make that call. This visit with Dr. Mehta was the first time I saw her since the surgery, which was a big deal as it required a flap surgery moving skin around on my face, leaving a large J-shaped scar from between my eyes to the end of my nose. As it has only been two months since the surgery, the scar is still quite prominent on my face. Dr. Mehta neither acknowledged the removal of the cancer or the scar, as though she had nothing to do with the event. I asked her a question about the scar and she said I would have to ask the surgeon, that she has nothing to do with the healing. I then asked her about feeling sad about the scar on my face and again she referred me to the surgeon who could address healing. Her lack of empathy and interest in the outcome of her biopsy and referral to a surgeon for a cancer diagnosis was disturbing to me. She may be skilled at cutting and freezing suspicious skin defects, but that's not enough for me.

03/29/2017
Was impressed with the doctor's expertise in her field.

03/29/2017
Except for the recent dermatology appointment which was for both a check up and a specific concern, I have not seen a doctor during the last 3 months, [...]. Thus far, all of my personal experiences with Providence has been positive.
80

03/24/2017
While not required, I would have liked Dr. Mehta to be more informative about her thinking on my condition - did my theory as to where it came from seem medically logical - and contraindications during med-taking? Just in general, I guess, think out loud. I like to understand how and why the doctor suggests the treatment prescribed. Expected outcomes. Etc.

03/15/2017
I had to wait for 30 minutes in the exam room before the doctor came in...the wait is usually less than 5 minutes.
90

02/28/2017
all was good

02/26/2017
Provider was not really listening and when I expressed concerns, she did not ask other questions about them or seem very interested in what I expressed as a concern.

02/26/2017
Dr. Merth is always very professional

02/22/2017
The staff is very friendly and I appreciated Dr. Mehta's gentleness. I wasn't meant to feel that any of my questions were stupid or like I was wasting her time.

02/10/2017
I feel the Dr is very competent.

02/08/2017
While friendly, Dr. Mehta spent literally 2 minutes with me and did not appear to know about my previous history. I had previously completed an ROI and asked for my previous records to be sent to her office weeks before the appointment. It was unclear if she had reviewed these or not. I felt she rushed through our time together and did not thoroughly check my skin to ensure there are no concerns. As a skin cancer survivor, this greatly disturbed me. I take my health very seriously and feel she did not spend enough time with me to complete a thorough check. I had to prompt her to look at the skin on my scalp (a standard of care I have received at all previous dermatologists.) My experience was that she wanted to hurry and get the visit over with, which was very disappointing and frustrating. I will be visiting another provider to have my skin re-checked and will not go back to Dr. Mehta again.
100

02/07/2017
Dr. Mehtahas always given me good advice and taken care of the small skin cancers that form on my body. She referred me to an excellent surgeon who removed a larger growth on my head that she felt needed a specialist care. That physcian was also great.

01/31/2017
Dr Metha is extremely brief in her examinations and not attentive. I have had melanoma and expect her to do a through exam when I show up for a follow up.

I really like Dr. Mehta she always has my health at well-being at the top of her list.

12/08/2016
Dr. Mehta came in late, seemed rushed, spent 15 minutes w/me and as a new patient establishing care I expected more time. She took less than 5 minutes to conduct a full body skin evaluation which I have little confidence was thorough enough.

11/27/2016
She is friendly & kind.

This was the first time I saw this provider. She was very professional. I did feel she could have been a little bit better on bedside manner- wasn't rude or anything like that- just very matter-of-fact. I went in for a rash- she IMMEDIATELY knew what it was and it's GONE now- she was very good. I also had a biopsy of a possible skin cancer- OUCH- didn't like that, but she and her assistant were very good and all was well. I would definitely see her again or recommend her to others. She was nice and smart and knew her field. I did feel when I told her something or asked, that she listened but didn't think that my opinion was worth discussing because I'm not the Dr. kinda made me feel like she heard me, but didn't 100% listen. Still, compared to a lot of doctors today, she and her staff were very nice. In the end with leaving, I did feel that was a little rushed and kinda standoffish, but I don't know her or her staff so she could have just been newly focused on another patient by then. I was happy with my choice. I didn't really care that when I first made this appt., and I was concerned about possible skin cancer, that I had to wait almost 3 months from the time I called to the time I got in. [...]

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.
