Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R), is a medical specialty that primarily uses physical methods to help in diagnosis, healing, and rehabilitation.

Dr. Mehta is a subspecialist in the field of Brain Injury Medicine, an area that deals with any condition that affects the brain such as (but not limited to) concussion, stroke, head trauma, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, encephalopathy and neurocognitive disorders.
Neurological disorders involve injuries or diseases of the central nervous system (the nerves that control the activities inside your body).

Why Did You Become a Specialist?
I became a rehab medicine specialist because of the immense challenges and rewards involved in patients' recovery after an injury. I derive joy from helping others live better lives, and I get to do that as a job every single day.
What Is Your Care Philosophy?
I believe in a wholesome care model that involves a team effort rather than patient and their caregiver fighting a problem by themselves with others being exterior to the situation. I want to help in every step of the way and lessen the burden on the patient and caregiver(s). Caring for oneself is very difficult to do when one is not feeling their best. So we are prepared and here to help you along the way to achieve your maximal level of function.
