Specialties

Dr. Shilpa P Mehta has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

  • 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.

Un-Professional. Runs her practice like a grocery business rather than a medical practice

This doctor is also a wannabe accountant. She does the accounts and billing herself, so if you are late in paying a bill, she will cancel your appt as was the case with my child. She cancelled my child's appointment because we were late in paying her $50.00. Furthermore she charges a finance charge from the day she sent out the bill. She has refused treatment. She is very mediocre in her diagnostic ability and as others have said, she will pass you on to a specialist. This is a small husband/wife operation, with the wife wearing the pants and wanting to do it all. Even her office staff is frustrated and gets arrogant at times. There are many other doctors in the area. You have a choice.

Worst experience ever

I had really worst experience with this doctor , I suggest no one should go to this Dr Mehta... There are many other good doctors in Delaware.My waiting period was around 1 hr. Staff was not supportive & was ill behaved.When i told her about my problem she didn't even check what is wrong instead she send me to specialist. I will never visit her again.
