Dr. Mehta is originally from Tampa, FL and received both her undergraduate and medical training at the University of Miami. While she remains a diehard Canes fan to this day, she was drawn to the unique challenges of treating the Parkland population along with the emphasis on excellent clinical training offered at the internal medicine residency at UTSW. Fascinated by managing critically ill patients and being involved in all aspects of patient care, she subsequently completed her Pulmonary & Critical Care fellowship at UTSW and developed an interest in airways diseases and medical education. Dr. Mehta specializes in advanced asthma and COPD treatments, airway centric interstitial lung diseases, and general pulmonary medicine. Dr. Mehta’s interests outside of medicine include Bollywood dancing as a BollyX Instructor, traveling, and listening to true crime podcasts.
