If I could rate Dr. Mehta higher I would do so. He is an exceptional physician who provides detailed clear answers to my questions and discusses treatment options and recommendations with compassion. He is consistently encouraging and very thorough. I was very sad to learn that Dr. Mehta will no longer see patients in the outpatient clinic as I trust him completely. It will be difficult to find a new doctor who his has the level of care, compassion, sincerity and respect. He is a humble servant who desires the best for his patients. Many thanks to him for walking me thru cancer treatment, and other issues as they have arisen.

Always caring, considerate and concerned about my health and how he can help improve upon it. Listens very closely to my health concerns and goes above and beyond to get appropriate testing, prescribe necessary medication, refer me to another CC Dr as needed, to make sure everything is addressed. He also follows up post appointment when needed.

Dr Mehta is the best clinician, thoughtful about his patients' care , interested in helping patients understand and participate in their own care and clinical outcomes. I've been a patient of Dr Mehta for 18 years and I am sorry to learn he has decided to stop seeing outpatients. He is the single best part about the Cleveland Clinic!

Dr. Metha is my all-time favorite doctor. He is simply exceptional. He listens intently, explains things thoroughly and meticulously. He is thorough, caring, unbelievably helpful; always asking what else he might do to help. I'm heartbroken that I cannot continue on seeing him. I can't find enough superlatives to compliment him on his care, bed-side manner and service that he has provided me in my short tenure with him. I think he is the best doctor I have personally ever seen. My greatest gratitude to him.

There are not enough words that I can use to describe the care given by Dr. Mehta. Dr. Mehta is an incredible physician. His knowledge, caring, and compassion for his patients is genuine. He truly cares and provides the best care I could ever ask for. I have been so very lucky and fortunate to have him as my physician for 30 years. This man, this doctor, this physician exemplifies what being a phenomenal doctor is. CCF is so very lucky to have him as one of their physicians. I know that myself, as well as his other patients, have been given the best care possible by Dr. Adi Mehta.

Dr. Mehta was fabulous as usual. He listened when I tried to explain some of my blood sugar highs and lows, he helped me to see whether or not I was taking too much insulin, as a different doctor had suggested, and most importantly he told me to trust myself, especially since I have been managing my Type 1 diabetes for over 40 years. This was very much appreciated.

There are not words to describe Dr. Mehta. And there is not enough room here either.

I would be happy to elaborate at length. Call me.

It was not a video visit. It was a phone call from the doctor, which was very good.
