    Mamta Mehta, MD, MPH, is a Board Certified Gastroenterologist at the Eisenhower Health Center at South Palm Canyon in Palm Springs. After receiving her bachelor’s degree in economics from Stanford University, Dr. Mehta earned her medical degree and Master’s in Public Health from State University of New York Downstate Medical Center, College of Medicine. She completed her residency at Cornell New York Presbyterian Hospital and then completed a fellowship in gastroenterology at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

    As a child and teenager, Dr. Mehta always wanted to help people, which made pursuing medicine a natural path. While undecided in college, Dr. Mehta kept an open mind about medical school while studying economics. After working as a financial analyst for a year after graduation, she realized the business track wasn’t for her and began her pursuit of medicine by enrolling in medical school.

    While in medical school, Dr. Mehta most enjoyed her rotation in gastroenterology and she pursued this as her subspecialty. “It is a unique subspecialty that demands training in internal medicine, nutrition, radiology, pathology and performing procedures -- all which I enjoy,” states Dr. Mehta. “As a physician, I am not only a healer, but also and educator. I believe that by educating my patients about their health, I can empower them to become involved in their health care. I am always looking for opportunities to teach my patients about their GI health.”

    Dr. Mehta was raised in sunny California and after more than ten years in New York, is glad to be back. She enjoys swimming and cross-training activities, loves Indian classical dance as well as various forms for contemporary dance and music. She considers herself to be a foodie and enjoys exploring new restaurants. She and her husband (who is also a physician) have two beautiful young sons.
