The doctor has a proficiency of treating newborns and all Paeditric issues. He has a very large exposure of treating Pediatric febrile illnesses, infectious diseases and tropical diseases like Dengue and Malaria.
Toughest time for the parents comes when their child falls sick.But if they know a doctor who is not only qualified and experienced but also approachable, half the tension is eased.
Dr.Yogesh P Mehta has been my son's pediatrician ever since we moved to Mumbai.He has the following qualities that makes him an excellent doctor -
1. He is gentle and polite , gives us time to explain the health issue and answers to all our illness related queries without a rush.
2. He is easily approachable and it is easy to book a suitable appointment slot.
3. He does not readily prescribe medicines/antibiotics for simple issues.
4. He is just a call away as he shares
his cellphone number in case of an urgency.
He encourages parents to update him with their
kids' recovery ,especially in times of fever.
5. MY personal experience with Dr.Mehta
My son ,now 11 had dengue on Oct 4, for which I approached Dr.Mehta on the first day of fever.He not only diagnosed the disease early on but suggested a special diet chart for him that kept my son's fluid intake optimum and spared us from the pain of hospitalisation .
Since my son was weak ,I could share my son's recovery process with him over the phone ,without visiting him every day, as he had shared his mobile number with us.
I have great faith in Dr.Yogesh P Mehta and would recommend all parents to consult him for their kids' health issues. It will make the tough times during their kids' illness sail smooth and hassle free.
When it comes to our own child treatments that too for a new born, however good a doctor is, all what that's required for parents is that
1.availability of the doctor round the clock, (I have never seen a doctor giving mob number for contacting because always all doctors say call the hospital and leave a message but this is the only doctor I know who gives mob number to parents, he also ensures that he calls back in critical attention required times to understand any difficulties etc., and more over he is never in hurry to cut the call without offering solution at that critical time may be u r at home in middle of that dark night going through a tough time.... very good Mr Mehta is..... )
2.listen to parents to understand the core issues of child and then provide solution post diagnosis.
3. Doctor with smile face whatever their personal problems are in their mind.
4.friendliness to parents and children *** ** ****** **** ********* without experimenting on child by offering many medicines on trial basis.
6.instant appointment giving and no waiting... this makes me very comfortable as I am very busy in my schedule ... Dr Mehta is always conveniently accommodates whenever called for appointment with very short notice.
All the above qualities are perfectly matching with Dr Yogesh Mehta from Dr. L H Hiranandani Hospital powai...
Any parents who wants the doctor with above qualities will not say no to this doctor.... I truly respect Dr Mehta.... so far he is not doctor to my 2nd son since he was born but also for my 1st son who is 8 years old and he has become our family doctor now.....
Dr Mehta exceptional quality is that he is well aware of All the issues of new born child or matured children during diagnosis time in advance so he comes to treatment solution without experimenting...
I strongly recommend Dr Yogesh Mehta to parents for their new born or for delivery or for children of any age and even for parents..... tell.me ,who does not want "all facility under single umbrella" which Dr Mehta perfectly offers....
Don't hesitate to write to me or call me to kmow more about Dr Mehta who is such a great experienced doctor who are rarely seen.... most importantly the money comes secondary to him... In fact I have been after him to pay for fees many a times at the fee counter to remind him..... so gentle and warm and smily faced rare doctor... look at the doctor with smile which throws away 50% patients disease because as a parent u get that confidence and comfortness to talk to him.
I finish this with this shirt note as nothing is adequate to describe him in few lines......
Parents.... Please try him out this outstanding doctor who stands out from the crowd in providing good treatment and he is tech savvy and mobile and WhatsApp friendly..... what more u want in these Internet of things (IOT) days....
Good day..... God bless.

Dr. Mehta is extremely diligent in his diagnosis, and always ensures that the disease is suitably diagnosed before a medication/prescription is given. This might seem simple but anyone with small children know that this is extremely tricky. Dr. Mehta would always be in touch with you for first 24 hours after the first visit and take thorough observations to finalize his diagnosis and then prescribe medications. This is rare in today's age when the default way is to start immediate antibiotics. Extremely trustworthy and reliable, a 10 minute visit would relieve a parent of several doubts and that's actually half the medicine. Recommend Dr. Mehta for small children, especially if your approach is to go with only essential medications/antibiotics. He is the one who recommended nutritional ways to help us develop our child's immunity. Basis his nutrition advice, we could ensure a huge benefit in terms of frequency of seasonal infections for our toddler.
His patience and polite demeanor is a cherry on the ice for a learned and experienced practitioner.
In summary, an experienced professional whom you can trust like a family member.
I still remember when I delivered in the month of March, Dr. Yogesh Mehta was assigned by the hospital to check my newly born baby. Frankly I didn't know anything about Dr Mehta, but now I can say that when you have Dr. Yogesh Mehta as your pediatrician than you are rest assured that you have right doctor for your kid who is always a phone call away. You want to feel comfortable asking questions, discussing diagnoses and treatments, and partnering with your Child's pediatrician in your child’s care. There is a lot to learn about your child’s health and being able to understand what your doctor explains to you is an important part of child's health. Dr. Yogesh Mehta is a very good communicator, looks you in the eye, explains information in layman’s terms, answers your questions, is patient with you and your child, and respects you as the child’s parent. ** ***** **** **** **** ***** **** *** **** ********* *** **** **** ***** **** ******* **** he takes timely progress by calling you personally and will give you further advise which is very rare quality in any doctor (because of their busy schedule). I will definitely recommend Dr. Yogesh Mehta to every mother for their kids.
We have been consulting Dr. Mehta from the first day of my daughter's birth. We were as nervous and anxious as any of the first time parents are, however, he immediately put us at ease and gave us precise instructions as to how to go about nursing the baby. From then till now (my daughter is almost 3.5 years), he has been the Pediatrician to my child. The best part about the doctor is that he is available on phone whenever you need him- that in itself allays your fears (just in case an emergency arises). Also, he makes the child feel comfortable and makes Pediatrician visit a pleasant experience for them.
We had one such situation when my daughter was just five days old and her weight was reducing. She wasn't much active and so the doctor asked us to get her admitted if she doesn't show much activity. We did so, and immediately after getting her to the hospital she was her normal self within a couple of hours. Dr. Mehta kept her under observation for a day ( to ensure that the child is not dehydrating) and discharged her post that as it was just a case of normal weight loss. We were happy the way the doctor handled it and would recommend him to the parents of a newborn and parents who are in search of a good Pediatrician for their growing children.
We have been seeing Dr. Mehta for our 1.5 year old son since almost right after he was born. Dr. Mehta is very experienced and has a calm and patient demeanor which is especially reassuring for first time parents. He spends a lot of time explaining the issue and he also tells you clearly about the medicines to be taken and precautions that need to be taken at home. He is also always available on the phone for follow up consultations or for emergencies. The time and care that he devotes to each patient (and assuaging their parents fears!) is truly remarkable. We cannot thank him enough for his help over the past year and a half. Strongly recommended!
*** **** ****** ***** He was my pediatrician when I was a baby and now he is my baby's pediatrician he is like family to us! We trust him completely with his guidance and treatment. He is always there for us ...how many people can you say something like this in life. RIght from the delivery room till now he has stood by us in our bad times, even when we were scared at 11 in d night when my 6 months old baby fell off the bed he was there for us. Words fall short to thank you Sir. You are and you always will be our most loved and favourite doctor and a true friend. We respect you and love you for your spirit your passion and advise. Many thanks for being in our life God bless you!
Being a first time mother Dr.Mehta has been extremely helpful in dealing with my endlees questions and anxiety. He is a patient listener and explains the problem and solution to our fullest satisfaction. He is easily approachable and responds to calls . I was really happy when he called me the next day after my sons mounting fever n cold to check on status and revise medicines . *** ********* *** **** ** *** ********** ********* . I could not have asked for a better guide during this new journey . He is always smiling and encourages you if he feels u are unhappy or feeling low on hearing some new development or illness about your child .
Dr. Mehta has been my pediatrician and is now my baby's. In our over 20 years of experience with him, he has guided us perfectly through everything from common infections to serious ailments. Despite his busy schedule he always makes it a point to follow up with his patients and is reachable at odd hours too. He has always provided us with precise diagnoses and ideal treatment plan. He is extremely ************* *** professional. I would highly recommend Dr. Mehta as he is an outstanding pediatrician with superlative understanding of child healthcare.
Dr. Mehta has been our family physician since I was a child and now he's my son's paediatrician. Accurate diagnosis and perfect treatment plan is what you can expect from this extremely professional and experienced doctor. In our 20 years of experience, there hasn't been a single instance of misdiagnosis be it run of the mill infections to serious illnesses. You can blindly trust his astute judgement without resorting to any second opinions including the one on the internet! Despite his extremely busy schedule, he always makes time for his patients and follows up with you until the illness is resolved. I highly recommend Dr.Mehta as he is an excellent paediatrician with unmatched credentials and experience.
