Testimonials

Her love, concern, and care have helped me as well as the time she takes to listen. I really have not had, and do not have pain. The office staff is the best! They are friendly, considerate, and cooperative. The office is nice, neat, and pretty! Anonymous
My rheumatoid arthritis had gotten so bad that I needed two hands to turn the key to start my car and was almost in a wheelchair because of my knees. Dr. Mehta kept adjusting my medicine until I got relief. She was adamant that she didn’t want me to hurt. I can now do most things that I did Beverly Poolebefore rheumatoid arthritis with little or no pain. It has been like a miracle. Everyone in the office has been great. They are a very compassionate group.
About four years ago I moved to Kentucky from Michigan. I had seen my physician in Michigan for 2 years but nothing they were doing would help relieve my pain. I went to the Dr. in Radcliff who recommended that I go see Dr. Mehta. I knew from the first visit I had came to the right place. Dr. Mehta found that I had rheumatoid arthritis not just osteoarthritis that I had been treated for in Michigan. After the second visit I was feeling so much better. Dr. Mehta has always made me and my wife feel that she has actually cared about me as a person not just a patient. All the staff is always friendly, helpful and put you at ease. We love Dr. Mehta and her caring way of treating my rheumatoid arthritis. Michael Greene & Nanci Greene
I met Dr. Mehta about 13 years ago and immediately became her patient. I have osteoporosis and arthritis. In the many office visits, Dr. Mehta always greets me with a smile and a warm hand shake. She listens patiently to my health concerns, then prescribes the treatment or medication I need. Her office staff is friendly, pleasant and helpful. Going to a doctor is not a “fun” thing but, I know I’m receiving the health care I need. Mardella Jordan
