Dr. Daksha P Mehta has the following 2 specialties
A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Lord, where do I begin. I was sent to Dr. Metha in 2012 with more issues than I can count. She immediately started pushing for answers. Within no time she had found the mystery to illness. A nightmare illness. She had given me her personal attention and best professional service anyone could have ever asked for. She looked beyond the medical reports and showed me care and understanding. She and her staff have been my supporters, friends, well wishers and angels in disguise. I am forever grateful to have her and her staff there for me.
I was referred to Dr. Metha in 2012 for muscle weakness and fatigue. I was sent with the possibility of having lupus. Within weeks Dr Metha had me going for additional evaluations and then to the hospital for a muscle biopsy. What typically takes most doctors years to diagnois she discovered quickly. I had polymyositis with other overlapping conditions. I've been with her now for 2 years and look forward to seeing her at each appointment. The staff is the best you could ever have. So friendly and courtious. I love my Doctor and don't know where I'd be without her!
