I love and adore my doctor Mehta. His care and concern and knowledge has kept me upright. My hope is that doctors like him will be appreciated more,for not only what they contribute to the clinic,but mainly because of how much they sacrifice for their patients. Without doctors like him I truly see more folks leaving the clinic because it's not about being at the clinic that draws people. It's the doctors. For me anyway.
